ANTRUM - THE DEADLIEST FILM EVER MADE (2018) has just gotten a VOD release in Australia
Moody and creepy this is not a film of jump scares but unending dread. This is a film that feels wrong at the start and then just keeps going in a low tech "we're going do things to get under your skin and make damn sure you're not going to sleep tonight" sort of way.
This is a film that feels like a sister to the classic EQUINOX which was made by students in the late 1960's and ended up getting a big release. It feels two steps removed from a home movie with the result it's freaking creepy.
I suspect that some people will scoff at the film and it's cheapness and lack of jump scares but that would be wrong. This is a film that works because it's different than every other film. You just have to be willing to go with it.
Currently on Amazon Prime in the US it just got a VOD release in Australia and is worth a look
