[7.00/10] Sputnik (2020)

Sputnik (2020)

Quick Review: Taking place in '83 USSR, this Russian sci-fier captures authentically the grim bleakness of the Soviet era, and sets a somber tone for its barely original, yet clever and effective story that explores the bond between a wicked alien and its human host with visceral depth, and though "Sputnik" is very toned-down in its approach, it offers some sheer creature terror, grisly gore, and true frights, but above all suspense, with Akinshina's gripping character being the movie's driving force.
