The Furies(2019)(Review)[Weirdo Wednesdays]
Imagine a new aged telling of World’s Most Dangerous Games – where you have humans hunting humans. It’s not a typically original idea, but it has a lot of room to grow into something else. And where that area exists, so does The Furies.
The Furies simply starts with a woman waking up inside of a wooden-coffin. She crawls out and has no idea where she is. She then shortly comes across a man with a mask and a weapon who is on the hunt for someone – presumably her. So she takes shelter and finds a few more missing girls who are in a similar position. From here, the film follows a simple ‘cat & mouse’ style chase up ‘til the end.
Our main girl, Kayla, also suffers from seizures – they can often be at the worst times.
As the film unfolds we discover many twists and turns along the way (which I will not spoil here), and they are enough to set this film apart from many films that fit this familiar bill. Oh, and the film is gory as Hell, and that’s good news for a lot of us hardcore horror fans who are always on the look for a good amount of bloodshed.
It’s a lot of fun and full of enough twists to keep you interested, so this is one I would recommend. And it’s available for streaming right now on Shudder.
