Sweetheart (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Sweetheart is yet another modestly budgeted, low key Blumhouse release.  But this one ended up going directly to home/streaming which is a shame as, even though it’s pretty low key with it’s small but well formed cast, it’s still a solid genre-hybrid horror thriller that crosses a Lost with any number of monster & creature features from the 80’s & 90’s. Sweetheart is a tightly constructed, well made and delivers some nice tension across its sub 90 minute run time.

Best Bit: The reveal

47 Meters Down (2017) – A Quick Capsule Review

47 Meters Down (2017) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
47 Meters Down is a 2017 survival horror film written and directed by Johannes Roberts, who brings his track record in lower budget independent films to another, mostly enjoyable, lower budget independent film.  It’s nothing new – Open Water, Jaws and a million other films have trodden this path but Roberts does a good job of keeping the tension present during its sub 90 minute run time.  Okay so it runs out of steam a touch by the end and pulls a move that is at best described as ‘well worn’ but there’s enough to enjoy here to recommend as a beer and curry type distraction.

Best Bit: Yup I knew it!
