Never quite came to the Broil
15 July 2020 | by greenheartSee all my reviews

There are so many movies released that fall under the genre of horror, there really needs to be a unique angle for it to stand out. This has its moments, a sinister hint, a mother who isn't quite what she at first seems and a dysfunctional family. It genuinely had promise in the early stages. Although the jumping from scenes and music was a little jittery, I was definitely intrigued. AS the movie progressed and a slasher element was introduced, the movie lost its eeriness and intrigue for me. Some of the acting was suspect but a shout out to Avery Konrad who had a natural innocence as Chance Sinclair and particularly toJonathan Lipnicki as the chef, played in an almost autistic way, he was spot on. Almost futuristic at times, this was artfully shot and the music over the end credits was well researched. I just never felt this reached its full potential. Touches of the Adams family and Snow White in a loose kind of way, it has a place, just not at the front of the queue.

My favourite line - "Oh my God, please kill me before you finish that sentence."
