Thoughts on Flee the Light
Thoughts – Flee the Light is a horror thriller that will see the bond between two sisters as they will need to battle their own problems as they find themselves being attacked by an unknown ancient creature. When it comes to the idea behind what is going on is interesting because we balance the already known psychosis one of the sisters is going through, with a supernatural side of thing, mixing the unexplained side to things. When it comes to the supernatural side of things, we get enough to show the fear, but it only seems to show the danger within the circle, not a bigger threat that could be going on. The performances from the two leads Annie Tuma and Ariana Marquis are both strong, making you want to see more from them going forward. There is a weakness and that comes from the special effects being used that can take us away from the bigger picture.
Final Thoughts – Flee the Light is a horror that will give you plenty to enjoy, but does fall flatter when it comes to biggest impact.
