Sick ★★★

Hyams directs the action here with the relentless, visceral intensity of something like Day of Reckoning as Williamson's original story weaponizes trademark metatext as not-so-overblown, grizzly extremity at the height of lockdown paranoia. One's investment's contingent upon ambivalence or lack thereof: that we all want to either move on from the lightly varied COVID subgenre and its constraints or place ourselves uncomfortably inside the collective headspace of these particular archetypes in this particular pocket of the pandemic. Threatening spatial awareness and that dreadful aura it creates - no matter where anyone is - remains familiar but will likely never lose face.
