A potentially intriguing premise gets a maladroit execution in a thriller that's more befuddling than exciting.
It wants to be a commentary on the depravity of Hollywood and what people find entertaining, but instead it mostly just mirrors the media's habit of using sexual trauma as a plot device and surviving such horrors as a character trait.
If Desolation had just assumed that its audience needed less explanation while doling out the mystery, this could have been a savvy update. Instead, the film just comes off as contrived.
After we figure out what's happening, there isn't much more to keep us involved...
Desolation is a unique take on a more traditional horror film with strong performances, especially the central performance from Dominik García-Lorido.
