[review] The demons we find within in our “Lonely Hearts”

First off, this isn’t a monster movie. Of course, there’s the ending we’ll get to, but let’s talk about the film I recently saw. https://pacificainexile.org/students/essay-on-ambition-to-become-a-doctor/10/ go to site cialis5mg sold on line do i put the title of my essay in quotations source esl resume ghostwriters site usa click here follow url https://nyusternldp.blogs.stern.nyu.edu/how-can-i-tell-if-my-ipad-is-charging/ topics for thesis in electrical engineering police open viagra order follow site get link follow link jet airways case study analysis source url best research paper writing for hire for university http://v-nep.org/classroom/significance-of-research-paper/04/ how to develop leadership skills in your child https://www.sojournercenter.org/finals/frazy-dlya-ielts-essay/85/ https://chanelmovingforward.com/stories/essay-about-childhood-in-spanish/51/ follow url how do i get my email back on my iphone 7 http://www.nationalnewstoday.com/medical/pills-like-viagra-in-stores/2/ essay writers hub review enter https://heystamford.com/writing/custom-what-are-term-papers/8/ https://coveringthecorridor.com/rxonline/site-serieux-pour-commander-du-viagra/43/ buy argumentative research essay right dose viagra click here ib english extended essay “Lonely Hearts” written and directed by Sam Mason-Bell and Jessica HuntA reality TV show has deadly consequences for five single people looking for romance.

Sophie Atkinson

I have to admit I’m not familiar with Jessica Hunt’s work, but watching Sam’s work, I had an idea of what to expect. Truthfully there was no disappointment on my end while watching the movie. The movie starts with auditions with the main cast. Sue Dawes, Alice Mulholland, Tyne Stewart Martin Payne, Chris Mills. We see the characters, and we don’t get a chance to love or hate them right off the back, which is good because the movie does a great job developing the characters along the way. The film progresses where the cast meets each other and becomes acquainted with one another.

Martin Payne

There are no challenges on the first night, but the alcohol plays the ultimate ice breaker for the couples. We then begin to see the inner linings of the characters, which sets up who we want to root for and who we want to dislike. Spoiler alert Chris Mills plays a great job at being an egotistical sex-crazed lousy guy.

Alice Mulholland

I might add there are a few sex scenes with Chris where the directors didn’t make it look like softcore porn or even romantic. Just unadulterated sex. Which given yes, there’s nudity, but it does add to the feel of the movie since it’s almost like a found footage we see a bright look at the characters on how they are. Chris comes off as a terrible person forcing Alice to go against her will and just ultimately give in to his demands. There’s a rape scene later with Alice that just makes Chris even worse of a person. His character mind you. Keep in mind the term “character” plays an essential part in this movie

Chris Mills

The next day the games begin, which start straightforward challenges such as skinny dipping in a freezing lake. The problem is not that aggressive, nor does it seem intense, but it does lay the foundation of the characters such as Martin being the overall good guy by not letting Sue participate, whereas Chris just heckles the other girls. The host of the show, played by Sophie Atkinson Sophie does a great job playing the neutral party for the most part until later.

Tyne Stewart

The show progresses where the challenges don’t become difficult, but we find out the TRUE characters of everyone. We feel indifferent; we feel angry, sad, and even betrayed, where characters like Martin and Sue these characters we root for and want them to win only to find out they’re not exactly great people. Yet, we forgive them. However, it’s not until we find out the ultimate end game. The host is just luring unsuspecting victims to their doom using actors to play along. Think of a killer family on a reality show, but they’re only getting paid, and it’s a network of actors being used to do what they need to get ratings.

Sue Dawes

The film might be a slow burn to some or not even be your typical “camp slasher film” however though from previous work of Sam’s I have to admit he starts slow the slow burn takes into effect where it grows and grows to the point you there’s no way to cure it. The pain develops, and the result is just you lying there, thinking you need a cold shower. The film feels real; the actor’s portrayal is too authentic to the point I was disgusted by Chris’s character and feeling bad for Martin, who suffers the ultimate loss. He’s sacrificed on camera mentally and physically abused. You have to understand his role is that a man of the cloth, so when he’s attacked using bible pages and cut apart in the woods screaming for his love’s name and help. There’s no one there to help him. The audience then feels uncomfortable and sad. It’s a horror movie none the less it’s supposed to make us feel this way most horror movies aim for that. However, Lonely Hearts pushes it to the edge with fear of how we are as people and what we do for love. The film is worth owning and worth checking out the rest of the work from the directors.
