Verdict on The Razing
The Razing is a mystery thriller that follows a group of friends that remember a previous night, on what might be their last. It will dive into how the friendships changed over time, leading to them going down dangerous paths.
When it comes to thrillers, this does seem to try too heavily on uncertainty. It will show how friendships can spiral out of control and secrets can tear them apart. The strongest part of the film is not knowing who is the most honest of the group. As we are constantly shown different points of character.
The performances are strong because the stars commit to the unexplained events they are going through.
Final Thoughts – The Razing is an interesting thriller that keeps you guessing.
