Thoughts on Human No More

ThoughtsHuman No More is a horror thriller that revolves around a detective trying to get to the bottom of a series of murders. The story is told with flashbacks to different crimes, each one becoming more twisted than the last, but slowly starting to show a connection. This is an interesting way to show the story unfold, because it does look to turn everything you would expect to see from the characters around. This is however a story that you could find yourself getting lost in, with the amount of details going on, with the 2 hour runtime getting filled with moments that are filled with a few too many conversation moments that don’t go very far, or uncomfortable moments that could have been shortened. The acting is strong through the film, with the effects adding to the horror we get to experience being brutal.
