I didn’t know anything about this film coming out, except that the lead actor was African American, and it was supposed to be scary as hell. Daniel Kaluuya, killed his performance in this movie. His facial expressions are what really nailed it for me. You really believed that he was living through the experience.
The movie almost struck me as more of a psychological thriller than horror, but it sure had its moments. It wasn’t a gore fest and it wasn’t paranormal, but it was thrilling, and it kept me guessing until the end.
The movie had a unique concept that was executed well. It’s worth the watch I’d give it a solid four stars. So if your looking for something to watch on a weeknight or if you just have some friends coming over you could pick a worse place to start.
