Simon Barrett's Suggestion Didn't Live Up to the Promise
23 March 2020 | by shadhuahmedSee all my reviews

Screenwriter Simon Barrett of two very popular slasher flicks [You're Next and The Guest] suggested this title in his series of obscure movies on social media. But this one wasn't quite my speed. Although it had everything going for it: a famous author of pulp fictions, a European clime in the nighttime, a killer with a scythe a la Italian gialli. But about halfway through it ran out of ideas. Nothing there to complement Hans Zimmer's electronic score. the eerie setting and the performances of the leads.
