Spiral

I came across a mention of this film in a movie magazine recently (I think it was Empire), and it came recommended, and so I decided to check it out — it’s a Shudder original film. I ended up really enjoying this. At first there was sequences that I disliked because it felt like an illogical thing for a character to do (like keeping something hidden from another character that it made no sense to keep hidden), but in the end it didn’t really matter because I thought the story they told was interesting — a gay couple moves into a small town, and strange things start happening with the neighbours — and not only did it come to a satisfying conclusion, but I also liked how it set up a continuation of the cycle (something we often see in Japanese horror films). Well worth watching.
