Decent pandemic slasher
Being in the middle of a pandemic can be scary, but realizing that someone out there is trying to kill you can turn the situation into a nightmare. Sick balances the slasher formula with modern horror creating a fun and entertaining horror movie. While it fails with some details and portrait of characters this is compensated with tense and well played cat and mouse sequences. That combined with good practical effects and creative kills the film elevates from turning into a unmemorable and basic horror film. Sick even makes a good use of being set during April 2020, the peak of the COVID19 pandemic. Instead of being just an element to bring the audience to watch it is used as the plot twist trigger.
I was totally unaware of this film until today…and I hadn’t seen any trailers for it…so I was literally going in blind.
It started off ok-ish, with kind of Wes Craven vibes, but went downhill rapidly!
It’s set at the height of the Covid pandemic, which is all but played out now…ENOUGH!!! But the pandemic element added almost nothing to the film. Just 20 seconds of tension near the end. It was more of a rushed reason for this film to exist. If you’re gonna make a film that throws the pandemic right in your face, then you better make the pandemic the star of the show…and have a massive bearing on the plot. It could of quite easily have been set anytime in the past, or future.
Wasn’t really original in any way, shape, or form. Unknown calls/texts has been done to death. Stuck in an isolated cabin in the middle of nowhere, a couple of fakeouts…and practically every other cliche in the book was present.
The killers weren’t scary at all, they were more like comical ninjas.
The film is almost pitch black for about 95% of the runtime, which you already know, (from previous reviews), absolutely p*sees me off! There was no atmosphere, or feeling of dread. All the scenes seemed to melt into one another, with almost no build-up, or payoff. The soundtrack/score was too ‘upbeat’ for a horror.
It was more like ‘made for TV’ movie. Ultimately, it just wasn’t scary.
