Review in Brief: Scare Me (2020)

SCARE ME is an absolute joy, full of mischief and creativity and completely different to every other horror anthology film out there. A simple enough premise – an aspiring horror writer waits out a power cut in an isolated cabin with a successful published author and both proceed to tell and perform scary stories to outdo each other. The sound design accompanying the stories is genre mainstream quality but everything else is left to your imagination and the game performances of Josh Ruben and Aya Cash who pantomime the events and characters of their stories for our amusement. It’s funny, intriguing and sweet until it definitely isn’t anymore. Likely won’t satisfy every horror hound, but for anyone looking for something a little different, it’s well worth catching on Shudder. SSP

I'm not paid to write about film - I do it because I love it. Favourite filmmakers include Bong Joon-ho, Danny Boyle, the Coen Brothers, Nicolas Winding Refn, Clio Barnard, Steven Spielberg, Guillermo del Toro, Paul Verhoeven, Taika Waititi and Edgar Wright. All reviews and articles are original works written and owned by me. They represent one man's opinion, and I'm more than happy to engage in civilised debate if you disagree.
