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

My Review:
Wanting a nice easy film to watch I thought I would watch Shrek which is a film in which I grew up with and I am able to quote pretty much word for word. I find that this film always makes me happy and it just relaxes me to watch which is something in which I was really looking for when I decided to put this on.

Personally I love this film, this humour in it is brilliant for both adults and children which does make this an easy film to watch with the whole family. Not only this but by having it with fairytales in which people grew up with as some of the characters and making the traditional style into their own it is e…

My Review:
Having been interested in this movie for a while and it really catching my eye lately especially with it being on Netflix I couldn't resist but to give this a watch. This is something in which I had better expectations for than it gave me and seemed a rather forgettable movie even though it wasn't a bad watch.

I liked that The Girl With All The Gifts started with showing how the children were taught and kept in separate rooms however made the audience wonder why they were kept that way when they seemed like normal children. Later discovering that they were zombies and that there was a zombie break all over the world through the cause…

About: Four best friends test their intelligence when an escape room they participate in takes a dark and twisted turn.
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AI2MbS-e_us

My Review:
Wanting something different to watch I thought I would check out Escape Room which is available to watch on Netflix.

This movie was good in that it did provide mystery and I did enjoy how the puzzles within the Escape Room were laid out and that every room had something in which they had to figure out and it was not just one room. I also enjoyed seeing how the people actually interacted with each other and why they seemed so hostile with certain characters. By also starting the movie with seeing someone having to choose a lock it came across very much like the movie "Saw" which does feel very much the same all the way through the movie. With also having the movi…
