Shelly is a new horror Icon
3 June 2019 | by geeklegionofdoomSee all my reviews

A movie that plays like a genre mixing slasher meets thriller meets drama movie What works?

  • 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
