Body at Brighton Rock
Directed by Roxanne Benjamin
Wendy, a part time summer employee at a mountainous state park, takes on a rough trail assignment at the end of the season, trying to prove to her friends that she’s capable enough to do the job. When she takes a wrong turn and ends up deep in the backcountry, she stumbles upon what might be a potential crime scene. Stuck with no communication after losing her radio and with orders to guard the site, Wendy must fight the urge to run and do the harder job of staying put — spending the night deep in the wilderness, facing down her worst fears and proving to everyone – including herself – that she’s made of stronger stuff than they think she is. A SHUDDER UK EXCLUSIVE.
When a ranger discovers a crime scene, she must protect an unidentified body at all costs and face her darkest fears.
Cast: Karina Fontes, Casey Adams, Emily Althaus
In contrast to most everyone else... I loved it! The protagonist is extremely likeable and you definitely root for her the whole time. The slow pace = slow burn, with a big payoff. It's the most realistic horror film I've ever seen. Any hiker knows how easy it is to find yourself in danger and afraid in the woods. Probably more of a thriller than horror (especially due to the realism of the situation) but still loved it. If you don't like a realistic, character-driven, slow-burn, suspenseful thriller, it may not be for you.
It's....okay. I found myself bored for most of the film, and the acting isn't like amazing...It has a bit of an old-time movie flair, especially with the soundtrack, and the ending was great, but I feel like this would have been a better movie if it was shorter, which I don't often say. There's just such a large chunk in the middle where literally nothing happens. If they had had the man stay longer, had him around a bit more, I think it would have been better. Build up her suspicions, and the ending more instead of just making it seem like she was going crazy in the woods.
average film if you're bored
It’s ok,slow until last half hour then it picks up .
