[5.75/10] The Night (2021)

The Night (2021)

Quick Review: It does succeed in creating a dark and eerie tone only through the right use of lights and shadows in addition to its ominously claustrophobic setting, and it uses some clever tricks to deliver shocks, with the big reveal making enough sense to explain the earlier muddle in the puzzling plot, but this Iranian supernatural horror is basically 'all mood and gimmicks', which makes experience as surreal and illogical for us as it's for the characters, but at least it builds tension.

I'll prepare for surreal then.

Alex, definitely surreal. :)
