Unsane (fiilm review)

Film: Unsane
Year: 2018
Genre: Horror, Thriller
Starring: Claire Foy, Joshua Leonard, Jay Pharoah
About: A young woman is involuntarily committed to a mental institution, where she is confronted by her greatest fear--but is it real or a product of her delusion?

My Review:
Having seen the trailer for this on the tv and it grabbing my interest I decided to go to the cinema to see if this film was as good as the trailer had made out for it to be. So here is my views of it while seeing it on the big screen.

This film is about a girl who goes to see a counselor to talk about her previous stalker and how she still sees him everywhere, after this while doing some paperwork she accidentally accepts to be admitted into a mental institution where it so happens that her stalker is now working. As she tries to come to terms with him being there she is also trying her hardest to get out so she can get away from him.

I thought this film was rather boring in honesty with the introduction being far too long and slow to get into the film. Not only this but it just seemed to not do much even while she was in the institution itself till the second half of the movie, when there starts to be more action and things happening to the main character involving her stalker and when you see how far he is willing to go to have her all to himself. As well as this I feel some of the camera angles which were used were not used properly and just didn't make the film look all that professional, which isn't surprising when I found out later that night that this film was filmed on an iphone!

I did like however, like the ending of the movie which showed how far he was willing to go to be with her. As well as this there was more scenes of violence with having a patient OD and killed. Also the fact that they decided to show that a reporter was trying to prove that the facility was locking up sane people as well so that they could get insurance money and got found out I thought was a great fit to the movie itself which fitted into the movie well.

I would have kept Unsane as a TV movie however as I feel that it doesn't fit in the cinema and is not something which has benefited in doing so. I would recommend this movie to those who are looking for a movie about stalkers and insane asylums.

My Rating: 2/5

Moon Over Soho - Ben Aaronovitch (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: Moon Over Soho Author: Ben Aaronovitch Genre: Crime, Fantasy, Mystery Published By: Gollancz Published Year: 2011 My Review: Having my colleague let me borrow the second book in the Peter Grant series I was looking forward to see how they would progress from the first book and what supernatural beings that they would have to defeat now. Moon Over Soho  is about jazz musicians who end up dying not long after coming off of the stage and seeming healthy at the time. Feeling that something is wrong they call in Peter Grant to help with the investigation and discover that something supernatural was going on. While this is happening there is a new threat arriving called The Faceless One who is also a wizard but no-one remembers what they look like. Will Peter be able to stop the threats facing London? Personally, I liked this book a lot more than the first book as it was already established also there was more supernatural beings introduced and to worry about in London th

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUdy0Cu3f_o My Review: Looking through my movies and wanting something based in space to watch I decided to put on Supernova which is a film in which I couldn't remember at all. Not remembering it made me feel like this was a new movie to me and I did keep me watching all of the way through easily. I like that this film showed how the device in which they discover is able to make people stronger and able to make them younger as well. By also having this device able to reattach body parts it makes the audience worried about how they will get rid o

Walko About:  A young American girl has a chance of a lifetime to visit her ancestors castle in the south of France, only to find that her family is hiding deep, dark secrets about their nefarious past, far away from prying eyes. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EARmKIxjxQ&t=82s My Review: Having been contacted by Jude himself about this movie I was rather surprised but excited to review The Incantation which comes out in America later this month. Having only seen the trailer I was not sure what to expect but glad I gave this a watch. The film is about a girl from America who moves to her families castle in France and is met by a vicar who tells her the rules of the household with three rules: no going upstairs, no uninvited guests and keeping decorum. As she stays however she starts getting nightmares about a young girl wh
