*NON-SPOILER* Getting familiar with The Unfamiliar
4 September 2020 | by monetteigrecSee all my reviews

After creating a comfy environment (popcorn, drawn curtains, blankets, lights off, sound on) I sat down to watch the much anticipated The Unfamiliar. From rich imagery to eerie sounds I was definitely intrigued. Needless to say, my popcorn bowl went flying a couple minutes in, that was the only real jump scare that I got, which I can appreciate.

I felt that the movie had a strong plot BUT I would have liked some elements of the story and characters to be a bit more exposed. The cinematography was awesome and the movie score was impressive. Jemima West's performance was spectacular, I felt like she really leapt into her character and created a feeling of relatability for the audience.

All in all, I enjoyed The Unfamiliar and would have loved to have seen it in the cinemas. The first few reviews I read do not do it justice.
