‘Unlocked’ Review: A Surveillance Thriller Best Left Offline
Unlocked, a Korean thriller directed by Kim Tae-joon, features Paranoia, the chilling protagonist and a serial killer. He takes pleasure in using his victims' smartphones to wreak havoc on their lives before brutally murdering them. In the past, killers resorted to methods such as throwing victims into pits or attacking them in dark alleys. However, the advent of modern technology has provided deranged minds with a whole new range of creative options for committing heinous crimes. Unlocked, now streaming on Netflix, serves as a cautionary tale and a metaphor for the dangerous consequences of technology falling into the wrong hands. Let's watch the movie to find out.
We Have a Ghost Movie Quick Review
Christopher Landon creates wonderfully quirky films in the horror genre that defy the prevalent cynicism of the day. In films like "Happy Death Day," "Happy Death Day 2U," and "Freaky," he expresses contagious joy through filmmaking, avoiding the pretension of "elevated horror." Whatever you want to say about their overall quality or execution; No one can argue that Landon was having a blast while creating them. When Landon is given permission to be silly in a way that only makes the viewer smile, his most recent film, "We Have a Ghost," is at its best. Sadly, his writing isn't as good as his directing, and the movie drags on for far too long and has multiple endings, even though it seems content to repeat themes and images rather than expand on the film's intriguing concepts. In the end, it's a good distraction, which is what most Netflix users are looking for. However, I hope he makes "Happy Death Day 3" before coming back to this world.
