Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The world probably needs a film that highlights the dangers and lack of safety women face in the modern day. And, for the most part, Lucky does a pretty good job highlighting this, working as both a horror movie and a feminist text. But this is very much a Creepshow or Tales Of The Unexpected episode rather than a feature film and by the end the film both starts to loose steam as well as any subtlety it may of had. Yup hammering an important message is one approach but strong, smart story telling combined with compelling performances is a more effective one. Sadly Lucky goes with the former. Even sop this is still another solid release on Shudder, which is quickly becoming an essential monthly purchase for horror and genre fans.
