Come True (2021) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Anthony Scott Burns’ sci-fi thriller Come True is an odd beast. Part Donnie Darko part 80’s David Cronenberg homage, it’s not always successful but what it does manage to achieve is being super creepy and unsettling, trading far more on its ability to create a unique and memorable atmosphere than a coherent story.  What’s also a big win for Burn’s is the confidence in which he delivers the story to the screen.  This is his film, told his way for better or for worse and its unique visions like this (no pun intended) that deserve to put put on screen for everyone to see. There’s nothing studio or artificial here. It’s ending is to oblique for my taste but there’s still plenty to enjoy here to make this a strong recommendation for fans of films like Videodrome.

Best Bit: Creepy atmosphere
