Bestseller is a best thriller
24 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

BESTSELLER is a Michigan-made movie worth seeing, if only to confirm that competent Wolverine film crews and casts can come together to create high-value, high-tension entertainment. Melissa Anschutz and DJ Perry team up once again under the skillful direction of Chrissy Rohn to deliver riveting performances even if some scenes are drawn out a bit too long. Good hand-held camera work brings the viewer into the chases and establishes a voyeuristic point of view during the shower and bedroom scenes that does not exceed standards of decency. Terror grows as horror is established more in the mind than on screen but the loud echoes of Hitchcock and Stephen King were a bit overpowering in my book diminishing what was starting to be a pure white knuckles experience. My criticism here is minor in the wake of what writers Travis Goddard and Chris Knight and director Rohn have brought to the screen, As the identify of the bad guy or guys comes to light, viewers will continue to be surprised by twists and turns and left to wonder if Bestseller II is in the offing. If or when Bestseller comes to your city, be sure to see it, if only to support home-grown talent. You won't be disappointed in any case.
