October Treats:May

After having a hard time finding a horror film that really jumped out at me,i finally found this little gem.As usual,here is the movie summary

Psychological horror about a lonely young woman traumatized by a difficult childhood, and her increasingly desperate attempts to connect with the people around her.

While this movie won’t give you nightmares, it manages to feel pretty unsettling throughout. This is mainly because of the main character,who is extremely weird. And not in the fun quirky way you see in most hollywood flicks.

I mean she acts how a woman who has never had friends in her life would act,and while i don’t want to spoil anything her attempts at communicating with others usually come off creepy and off-putting.

And yet because the movie shows why she has had to deal with loneliness for so long, it makes you sympathize with her even when her behavior borders on repulsive. Anna faris also gives a unusually off-kilter performance that adds to the strangeness of the film.

So while this film probably won’t give you nightmares, i do think it has a interestingly creepy mood.

  1. I remember being really intrigued by this move – I think off kilter is the perfect term to describe the entire movie!

    I think I started watching this once, or I saw some scenes from it. I remember liking it, but I never went back. Is it on Netflix?
