Run 4/10 (the new movie, not the show from earlier this year)
I would love to give this like four stars but this film fails it's star Kiera Allen just about every step of the way which is a crying shame because she deserves every bit of positive attention she gets out of this star-making performance. The two major problems:
1) The writers of this film have a bit of an issue writing the antagonist, played by Sarah Paulson. Look, it's Sarah Paulson, I think she does the best she possibly could with this material, but it's basically a very by-the-numbers sociopath role that's played as one. People who inflict Munchausen by proxy... aren't that? Like, forego the moral ambiguities and whether they have sociopathic tendencies, the choice to make the character verbalize those tendencies so vigorously destroys any threat the character poses. This is masked by Allen acting the holy shit out of every moment the camera focuses on her, but when it doesn't... it's really tepid.
2) Which kind of leads to the second issue which I guess you could see in the prior films these folks made, Searching, which is sort of the Michael Bay of modern shot-through-the-internet -movies, but the journey there has an immediacy that suits that sort of style. This is sort of an occasionally slower-burn horror movie so when you apply that style over it it feels either like a Platinum Dunes movie from the mid 2000s or a slightly-less frenetic American Horror Story. Neither of these is good for a film trying to do medical and mental terror on this level.
