Shelly is a new horror Icon
A movie that plays like a genre mixing slasher meets thriller meets drama movie
Great performances from our two main actresses Alexis Kendra makes what could have been an unlikable vapid character someone we care for . While Alig gives us a creepy and subdued performance but makes us feel sympathy for her character . Even small roles like the friend & the wife are great
The writing is top notch. Great character work. Alice isn't wholesomely altruistic. She is flawed , she does things for selfish reasons. We even understand her modern day first world problems . But it's a realistic character who we can relate and see things her way. I love the fact i didn't really know what Shelly's motives were and felt like she was genuinely unpredictable , does she what to hurt Alice? Really befriend her? Take advantage of her ?or something else? It's all revealed at the end , and has some great foreshadowing. Because we really don't know what Shelly wants out of all things, the story is an intriguing one .
Shocking with out being explicit . Some squirm worth moments
Great ending which gives you just enough answers, but leaves the door open
what doesn't work so well..
Last act of the movie more or less turns into a turns into a standard horror movie
Young Shelly actor wasn't brilliant ( but still not a bad performance )
There are some 'movie conveniences' like Shelly driving away for no apparent reason to allow a plot point to happen
Shelly has super human strength in one scene for some reason.
Flaws are relativity minor by comparison. A great horror movie , a great new horror character . Fab writing and acting
