Marina Antunes [Celluloid 03.16.16] horror



Writer/director Mike Flanagan made a big splash in the horror world a couple of years ago when Oculus played as part of TIFF's infamous Midnight Madness.


It proved to be a divisive movie. Audience members either loved or hated the movie which was essentially about a haunted mirror. I didn't find Oculus scary but the movie did have great mood and solid performances from both leads.


Hush is Flanagan's follow-up. Co-written with Kate Siegel, who also stars, it's another horror movie, this one about a deaf/mute author named Maddie Young (Siegel) who has retreated from the world and lives in the woods. One nigh, her life of tranquil seclusion is turned upside down by an intruder – queue the music - "it appears that Maddie is at the killer' mercy... but he may have underestimated his prey."



Yeah… bet you didn't see that coming.


Flanagan made headlines last week when Hush sold to Netflix prior to its premiere at SXSW. Now the movie, which was very well received at the festival, will be available to stream globally on the service starting April 8.
