There’s a new paranormal movie coming out.
But *plot twist* this one actually looks half decent! In modern day society, it isn’t often you will find me saying that about the release of a paranormal movie. But I have just watched the trailer (attached to this post) and I must say that I am impressed. The movie is directed by Adam Robitel who is best known for making short movies or TV documentaries. But, it looks like he has done surprisingly well and I must say i’m impressed.
“What starts as a poignant medical documentary about Deborah Logan’s descent into Alzheimer’s disease and her daughter’s struggles as caregiver degenerates into a maddening portrayal of dementia at its most frightening, as hair-raising events begin to plague the family and crew and an unspeakable malevolence threatens to tear the very fabric of sanity from them all.”
Now im struggling to work out whether the use of such a serious and devastating illness such as Alzheimer is distasteful and disrespectful or pure genius? Using that vulnerability to real us in and make us sympathize or understand the character, its something new. We’ve worked with creepy, innocent, vulnerable children before. And its getting pretty old. So, could this new spin be a new turn for the horror genre? Who knows. All I know is that i’m excited to find out.
