Verdict on Raging Grace
Raging Grace is a horror thriller following an undocumented Filipina woman keeping her daughter safe while taking jobs around the city. She takes jobs in empty houses to keep her daughter close, however, whenever the family returns, they must move on. Their latest home offers big money but holds much bigger secrets.
This is a movie that keeps everything on a knife edge. It uses the already risky life that Joy is living to remain in the country with a mystery about what is going on in the house. This keeps a nice balance between the two as well as we wait to see where the story takes us next. It does get to challenge the way people are treated in life and mix it with a twisted horror idea.
Final Thoughts – Raging Grace is riddled in tension and suspense.
