Eye For Film >> Movies >> Left Turn (2001) Film Review
Reviewed by: Angus Wolfe Murray
Sean Ellis's 15 minutes of fright is beautifully choreographed and exceptionally well acted. The tension builds slowly. The storyline is innovative, the thrills unexpected. A sense of unease runs through the opening sequences and you don't know why. This is pure athmospheric cinema, nothing to do with shock tactics.
When the wife of an architect picks up an old woman in a yellow mac during a rain storm, there is something not right about her inability to communicate. She carries a big bag, which suggests woodshed nastiness.
Nightmares are made of this.Reviewed on: 29 Mar 2003
