[6.25/10] The Paramedic (2020)

The Paramedic (2020)

Quick Review: Simple in premise, rather minimalistic in its approach, and limited in setting, yet capably- shot, well-written, visually sleek, and thoroughly successful in its attempt to be realistically disturbing, "The Paramedic" doesn't break any new grounds, since the whole 'captivity' thing feels pretty familiar, but Casas perfect embodiment of pure evil and sheer narcissism is what makes this slow-burning, terror-riddled Spanish thriller so spine-chillingly unsettling and nail-bitingly intense.

Done well, familiar tropes can come off as fresh.

Alex, that was exactly the case with this one.
