Highly disappointing misfire from the seemingly can’t-miss team-up of director John Hyams (Alone) and writer Kevin Williamson (Scream).
A slasher film set in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, it does have a gripping and suspenseful middle section. But you have to make it through a weak and dull first half hour to get there. And when you get to the final section, the killer reveal and motive, it is truly too dumb for words, which pretty much tanked the whole thing for me.
I have a low bar for slasher movies, I truly love them, but this one failed to reach that bar.
At least it’s only 83 minutes, but this is one case where the brevity just made it feel even more pointless.
