Incredibly tense horror movie which only features six actors has near perfect Rotten Tomatoes score

Incredibly tense horror movie which only features six actors has near perfect Rotten Tomatoes score

The movie has scored extremely highly on Rotten Tomatoes with its scaled-down approach

A horror movie from Australia has score incredibly highly on Rotten Tomatoes, with fans loving its scaled-down approach.

Horror as a genre is not a monolith, there are many different ways to approach the genre.

Whether it's body horror films like those directed by David Cronenberg, jump scare heavy supernatural films like The Conjuring, or psychological horrors like The Blair Witch Project.

This film falls very into the small, intimate, and slow burning kind of horror film.

The movie is very pared back in its storytelling.

It's no so much blood and gore and splattering guts everywhere, but takes a slightly more subtle approach to its horror.

Not that there's anything wrong with watching those kind of horror films as well if that's what you like.

This one however, takes things to a very pared back stage.

Picture it, an isolated location, a thunder storm raging outside, a mysterious stranger, and someone knocking at the door.

So, what is the movie?

It's called You'll Never Find Me, and has had rave reviews since its release in 2023.

The movie steps back from big expansive stories, with a small cast of just two main actors and six in total, including extras.

Needless to say, there are going to be some spoilers coming up, so you have been warned.

We start off with a lone man called Patrick who is living in a trailer.

As an enormous storm rages outside, there is a knock at the door and a woman arrives, asking to use his phone.

But as tensions build, it's clear that there may be something more to why she came to his trailer in particular.

Questions then begin to arise about Patrick's own sense of reality around him as his behaviour becomes more erratic and his guest becomes nervous of him.

It was a dark and stormy night...

The whole story is set just in the one location in the cabin, with such a stripped back approach to storytelling it could almost seem more like an intimate stage play than a movie.

It's certainly a far cry from the far more elaborate movies such as the Saw franchise or The Conjuring universe.

Here the story goes back just between the two main actors as the tension and claustrophobia build.

And yes, there is also a whole of blood in the film as well, just to be clear.

The film has received largely positive reviews, with a critics' review of 91 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, though it has yet to have an audience score posted.

You'll Never Find Me can be streamed on Shudder now.
