Movie: Better Watch Out
A fresh take on a cliche.
This film walks a tightrope and does it well. It could easily have descended into parody, it could have been predictable, it could have been too heavy, it could have been too silly, but it manges to do none of that.
It flows along seemingly effortlessly and the plot turns on a dime. Often.
Script, direction, cast -- all bang on.
Particularly the male lead, Levi Miller. He manages twists and turns of the story with precision timing and leaves you with a sense that he was savouring every minute of playing this character. I expect he will have quite a career if he keeps this level of work going.
