Sick ★★★

I wasn’t expecting to like this anywhere near as much as I did. This tight-knit slasher/thriller really managed to keep me hooked throughout it’s short run time. It’s like a modern day Scream (not as good, obviously) in terms of how relevant it is- borderline satirical in parts. The way Kevin Williamson and John Hyams use a neat narrative to reflect on how the world turned against each other when, quite frankly, we were all the victims, is a really fresh way to incorporate the pandemic into a self aware, mostly single location slasher. It reminded me a lot of Steven Soderbergh’s Kimi, but as a slasher. 

I loved the tidy camerawork here too, using a combination of quick-cut handheld with some really neat shots worked so well.
