Overall, 'Plush' was executed nicely and paid homage to the artsy horror genre, without unnecessary gore and clichés. The camera work was easy to follow and the cinematography was innovative and visually interesting. Costumes and set was realistic and creative.
The plot was highly dramatic and ridiculous, yet believable, which made the movie enjoyable and not cringe-worthy. The use of foreshadowing was implemented and served as a clever way to give audiences a chance to work out the twist before it was exposed at the end of the film.
On a down-side, I found that the casting for some roles was slightly unbelievable: Cam Gigandet and Emily Browning had sparse chemistry, and I found their relationship as husband and wife a bit unfeasible. Otherwise, casting was accurate and all actors played their roles effectively.
The film was highly sexual in some scenes, which put me off slightly, but was still necessary to the plot, which made the nudity and sex scenes bearable.
2 points for actors and casting
2 points for cinematography and visual components.
1 point for realistic and natural script.
