Come for the abidingly mysterious plot, stay for Hagan's bewitching performance.
The film doesn't always work as a genre exercise, but it's a winner as a character study, in large part because of how committed Hagan is to playing Janie's derangement. Casting directors in search of the offbeat should take note.
There's a lot to unpack and it offers no easy answers, but its challenges are deeply rewarding.
It goes without saying that this wouldn't be a horror film without violence and nudity, which there is quite a lot of, yet ultimately, all things add up to the creation of one evocative, trippy film that is sure to run chills down your spine.
Madness and motherlessness rule and unravel in Ben Cresciman's beautifully disturbing study of dissociation.
This will probably not be to everyone's tastes considering the film's uncomfortable nature and the lack of clarity within the narrative, but this film offers a unique experience that'll leave you surprised and intrigued.
Both for better and worse, Sun Choke doesn't spell anything out for anyone.
Sun Choke is plagued by the vague and cryptic.
... muted horror entry punctuated by explosions of graphic violence ... veers from Ingmar Bergman arty to De Palma trippy ... will be interesting to see which path Cresciman takes from here.
A beautifully-acted movie that probes some of the darker elements of the human psyche with style and undeniable scariness.
A tense journey of psychological despair.
Hagan is great, but the picture isn't, better appreciated as a directorial exercise for a burgeoning filmmaker than an engrossing exploration of insanity.
After viewing last year's documentary "Holy Hell", the Californian haze of cult-based mind control has lingered in the back of my mind. "Sun Choke" keeps a similar deeply unsettling, psychedelic tone. For fans of Panos Cosmatos' "Beyond the Black Rainbow" and 80's horror nostalgia, "Sun Choke" will offer some creepy vibes, some stilted acting, and some classic exploitation. I think I'm looking forward to more films like this, but I would prefer better acting and story. However, considering that it is on Netflix at the moment, it would make a welcome addition to your watch queue.
