Ultimately, the strains between fantasy and actuality begin to blur.
Director Alexander McGregor Birrell, in collaboration with co-writer Joshua Tonks (who additionally performs Ben), creates an unnerving story primarily based on his 2019 type of the identical identify. Firstly, the film drags at bit, however as soon as it will get going, this new Latent Picture retains the viewers guessing all the best way till the tip. It’s a film of creeping unease somewhat than bounce scares or gore.
The evolving relationship between Ben and “the Man” is the guts of the movie. Jay Clift’s efficiency because the Man is unsettling in all the most effective methods. Tonks and Clift are each theatre performers, so that you would possibly assume that they’d skew into the extra broad model of performing that performs properly even to a budget seats within the again.
