Still thinking about it
3 September 2019 | by clairetonge-55331See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to catch this film at Frightfest. The main character Jonathan is brilliantly acted by Frankie Muniz from Malcolm in the middle. Little Malcolm has shown us be is all grown up in this role. He plays a shop clerk in a dead end job who Neuss up with a woman through a 'telephone dating service'. Things soon spiral out of control for Jonathan and your are constantly trying to figure out what is happening. You think you figure it out when something else happens. Directed by Richard Handley and Brian Hanson in a short time scale which shows a lot of hard work was put in beforehand to ensure the film was perfectly shot and not rushed. Over a week since watching it and I'm still thinking about it. Looking forward to the dvd release.
