This movie is less about jumpscares and more about atmospheric maternity and dealing with loss. I feel like its much better to look at this movie from a Jewish folklore perspective. There's a definite theme of chaos and mistrust between the sects of people which paints a dark place where even summoning an ancient evil feels like the only choice left.
Wasn't sure what to expect with this movie. Overall it's a simple horror plot line, almost reminiscent of the old b-movie monster movies of the 50s. Where it shine is in its atmosphere, the subway is an endless and unknown territory and the monster of this movie, the Judas species, thrives being unseen in dark tunnels. Unfortunately the CG in this movie did not age well. I feel like I would have enjoyed this movie more if they made use of more puppets etc. Compared to other GDT movies it's kinda low on my favorites list but it's still interesting none the less and worth a check out.
I love how Hush portrays the main protagonist's deafness with sound cues. It's very clever and immerses us into her point of view beautifully. There's also startling visuals that really ramp up the tension and anxiety of a home intruder. Bottom line, Hush makes use of its limited location and minimal actors very well.
Visuals were cool but the story was bland and extremely uninteresting. This one might have benefitted sticking more to the source material?
Alien Covenant is a bit of a mess at times story-wise but I appreciate the attempt, especially concerning the continuation of religious metaphors; Cain & Abel etc. More than anything I liked this one for the action, visuals and Michael Fassbender‘s acting.
