Flawed but Admirably Constructed and Atmospheric Indie Horror
7 December 2019 | by TwistedContentSee all my reviews

Once again it was the trailer that got me all excited for "I See You" (poster's also cool), somehow I was anticipating a horror movie that'd feel like a hybrid of Blumhouse and A24 (to clarify, the movie's produced by an entirely different studio) - I could smell the potential in the air. Now I've seen it & I'm mostly impressed in unexpected ways, but the more I dwell on it, the more critical thinking starts to point things out.

I was wrong though, "I See You" feels much more like Blumhouse than A24. "I See You" is particularly interesting and feels fresher because of two reasons, its twisty script structure & the eerie atmosphere, driven by creative cinematography and an original score that does indeed remind me of the horror movies from A24. It'd be hard to speak of the plot, harder than usual, because the story is shaped by two or (arguably) three major twists. Before we get to that, I also want to compliment all the actors for doing a terrific job, although I didn't like one of the key characters/performances much - Alec, portrayed by Owen Teague. I don't know why, it was oddly hard to accept him. As I previously mentioned, major props to the cinematographer, as well as to the composer - top notch design on all levels, both are important driving forces of "I See You". Back to the script - it's admirably constructed, highly effortful story with twists that shift the plot greatly. While that seems to be this flicks secret weapon, I also deem it a flaw in the process. The turns, while getting set up, explained and shifted again, take time and pacing suffers a bit at times. That's the least of it though. It feels as if "I See You" is multiple movies in one and the consequence is that it never finds its real ground. The tricks are effective, but drawn out and helped greatly by movies technical factors and overall tone, basically, some of the tricks in use are cheap in disguise.

"I See You" is more than just enjoyable horror movie with nice touches of crime and family drama genre elements, it's technically and aesthetically amazingly done & is awfully ambitious, playing out lots of elements - a third of them work, a third of them feel questionable and another third of them could've been excluded. My rating: 7/10.
