This Should Draw Attention
7 October 2016 | by shawnblackmanSee all my reviews

This horror has a teenage girl getting picked on at school all the time due to the fact that her father is a murderer serving time. She takes recluse in her graphic novels she draws where she has a Michael Meyerish type killer wreaking havoc (usually on whoever upset her the most that day). The drawings merge into reality as soon as her father escapes and returns home piling up bodies almost immediately.

This one zips along pretty good. The film bounces between the present and what is going on her novel by using a different technique (kind of like Sin City) to show the change. It still has major Halloween (1978) vibes but it's still entertaining. The end rocked in this one as well.
