I was blown away by another Jennifer Lynch movie Chained that I reviewed on here a while back and I’m happy to say that Surveillance was just as good, if not better.
It was a horror/thriller that dispelled all the overused tropes and stood on an original story within a uniquely morbid atmosphere. It’s a dark and twisted tale that runs you around in circles as you try to figure out who the actual killer is. Like her father’s work, this film is largely character driven and rely’s on some fantastic unstructured narrative. Don’t worry, it’s not Mulholland Drive level confusing but it definitely skips around a bit.
As per usual, sometimes there’s cases where I think going too in depth in a review could ruin the film for someone else, so I’m going to keep this brief. Bill Pullman’s performance is exceptional and just in itself, makes this movie a must watch. Please don’t email or tweet at me about this not being a horror, I don’t give a fuck what you think when it comes to genre sorting.
