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.
There is life in the slasher genre yet
Can Kevin Williamson just write every horror movie going forward, please? He has a talent that few can match. I see his name attached to a project and I simply know it will be good. ‘Sick’ was no exception.
It will be interesting going forward to see how filmmakers make films set during the COVID pandemic. I hadn’t clicked before now just how perfectly they lend themselves to a horror movie. ‘Sick’ utilises it perfectly with both thought-provoking commentary and an isolated setting that only makes sense during that time.
The film is tense. There’s an opening kill scene – which is probably the weakest part of the film unfortunately. Then a bit of set up. But once the action kicks into gear it is relentless. The film is also not afraid to be brutal at times. Anything goes in this film.
This one is clever, tense, twisty and brutal. A total package. Likeable characters and very menacing villains are the icing on the cake. 9.5/10.
