A horror film that you will forget is a horror film for large portions of it
6 July 2020 | by jtindahouseSee all my reviews

Based on the synopsis for 'Body Cam' I really had no idea whether I was going to enjoy this movie or not. It sounded like an interesting premise, but I very rarely enjoy supernatural elements in films. That turned out to basically be my exact thoughts on the film. I really enjoyed the realistic side of the film, but the supernatural side of things - even though it was done surprisingly well - took me away from that and had me rolling my eyes a little. It wasn't overpowering enough to stop me from quite enjoying this little hidden gem of a film however.

It can be easy to forget that Mary J. Blige is actually an Oscar nominated actress. I think of her more for her music, but the fact is that she is a terrific actor when she wants to be. She was great in the lead role here - extremely likeable, never fluffed a line, and had me believing she was a cop from start to finish. Also Nat Wolff was a welcome addition to the film. Him and his brother seem to only like to do films that are quite dark in nature and have an edge to them. Generally when I see either of their names attached to a film I like to check that film out knowing it will likely be good.

The film only really falls down when it stretches the odd scene out a bit too long, and also gets a little dull through the middle stages. There is a scene towards of the film that really took me off-guard by how well it was done though. Very disturbing and certainly the best thing this film had to offer. I really enjoyed 'Body Cam' and would recommend people give it a look. Its IMDb score is currently far too low.
