Low key slow burn horror film has a chilly feel to it. Taking it's time in building suspense this film may not play well with those wanting a jump scare every couple of minutes. Don't let that scare you off this is a film with an oppressive atmosphere.
If you like low key horror that packs a punch see this film.

Medical thriller for the age of Covid has a doctor on his way home to his daughter's fifth birthday to help with a medical emergency. Little does he know that the hospital is about to go into lockdown with a mysterious disease that is ripping through the place.
Turn your brain off and go with it thriller plays into our fears about the recent pandemic. We know this can happen. Unfortunately you're going to have to not think about some of what happens because the film takes a couple of turns that are there simply because it allows the plot to move the way the filmmakers need it to.
Much too neat construction aside, I like it. Worth a look.
FACES OF ANNE (2023)
A young woman named Anne wakes up in a locked room not recognizing her face. She is told not to make a fuss or the nurses will come in. What then transpires is Anne's attempt to escape and find out what is going on.
Leisurely paced thriller is very much a case of we've been here before. That wouldn't be a problem except that the pacing is much too slack. We have time to think about what we are seeing and as a result we are comparing it to the previous films. Stories like this have to move and constantly give us revelations. so we are off balance and not thinking of the next thing.
