Elevator Game (2023)
Supernatural horror, based on the eponymous online phenomenon, a ritual conducted in an elevator, in which players attempt to travel to another dimension using a set of rules that can be found online.
Contortionists have becoming a thing huh? All scary movies use the same song and dance now - though admittedly it's a little scarier with this one!
They found a good elevator, they found a good cast, they have the story, they have the atmosphere, they have a catchy outro song after it's all over too - which I REALLY appreciate when it is. But the shock value's just... overplayed. I don't see horror movies the same way these days. When the threat is TOO perceptible it ruins the scare for me. Ghosts aren't real. Except when they are. Except when they really aren't there...
I love the play with lights, the humming, the numbers, the slow build, the red world. But then it just speeds up and loses me. Why they gotta do a good movie like that. This could've been... friggin' amazing.
It still is pretty solid horror.
The effects are good too.
rated 4/5: fo shizzle
