Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Directed by Jay Baruchel, Random Acts Of Violence is an odd beast. A slasher horror film based on the 2010 comic of the same name, its story of a pair of comic book writers discover horrific events are related to a character they created is an interesting and super meta ideas. But it just didn’t land as well as I wanted/hoped it to. Yes it’s is a full-on and visually striking horror but one that just tries to do TOO much, ending up being a lesser film because of it. It’s good to see some brutal horror on screen once again but it needed a better story to make it work. So not terrible but not great either.
Best Bit: The stabbing in the car.
