A good, original horror film with realistic characters.
18 June 2017 | by nzswannySee all my reviews

2011's Expiration, also known as Rancid, is a low budget horror film about a medical test that goes wrong. The participants don't know what the medical test is about, they're just doing it for the money. Instead of a leading role, we have all the perspectives of the participants as they experience the test and start to realize that it is no ordinary one. Brandon Auret and Ingeborg Riedmaier are the best performances in this film, displaying realistic emotion and understanding their own roles and the situation their characters are in.

The film is good to the horror genre and uses claustrophobia and shock value to please the horror film fan, but this film also has realistic characters with pros and cons in order to keep moving the story forward. The characters act realistically to their situation and are forced with obstacles and tasks to survive, revealing their personality inside and their instincts. Alastair Orr did a good job with the small bit of security-camera cinematography in the film, and most of the cinematography in the second half of the film was really good considering their equipment, but the first half's cinematography could of been a bit better, I think.

A good film I recommend that will leave you asking questions in every scene. My only real problem with this movie is that I think the film could of been a bit slower paced so we could of built up more tension to the scary moments. Recommended, overall I'd rate this a 7.1/10. Sorry if the review was too short, but I didn't want to spoil anything...
