Film4 FrightFest 2015 Review – Suspension (2015)

Suspension, 2015

Directed by Jeffery Scott Lando

Starring Ellen MacNevin, Sage Brocklebank, Taylor Russell, Connor Fielding, Johannah Newmarch, Duncan Ollerenshaw

Synopsis:

A high school girl and her bullying peers are terrorized by an escaped psychotic killer who is more than meets the eye.

There is a good movie trying to get out of Suspension, but it just can’t quite fight its way through the average display on show. There is nothing terrible in the filmmaking, writing or execution, but there isn’t anything great either.

From the trailers, Suspension shows a lot of promise as a troubled and bullied girl at school is writing and drawing a comic book based on brutal murders, which also seem to be happening in real life. This all comes to a head when our seemingly insane artist is home alone with her mute brother, and her sadistic and psychopathic masked killer father has come home.
