CAM (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
CAM is a really interesting technology based horror that marks yet another strong Blumhouse production to be released this year.  Lead by an excellent performance by Madeline Brewer  and some exceptionally well handled and sympathetic direction by Daniel Goldhaber CAM is measured, unexploitative and tightly directed.  In short: Netflix has delivered a well handled horror that is a must see for genre fans.

Best Bit: Madeline Brewer is excellant

Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Unfriended: Dark Web is another strong entry into the ‘desktop’ found footage sub genre that’s arrived over the past few years.  And yup it’s another Blumhouse production.  Taking more of a ‘real world’ concept that the previous Unfriended movie, Dark Web is well made and does the best with its limiting format.  I question just how many more of these films we can watch before they get a bit ho-hum but for now Unfriended: Dark Web is well worth your time.

Best Bit: Great use of the format

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Searching is a damn clever film. Taking the format set out in Unfriended (everything being done in-screen) it delivers a missing child thriller which cleverly flips and turns along its  narrative.  Okay so to be honest I pretty much guessed the outcome from the moment certain characters appear but the format and use of media, computers and technology to tell its story make the film pretty captivating (dubbed Screenlife).  This evolution of the found footage movie feels right

Best Bit:  The Screenlife format works really well
