A Suspense-Filled Psychological Thrill Ride
Up-and-coming filmmaker Jorge Xolalpa Jr. drops his audience into a complete mental breakdown in Sweet Caroline, his most ambitious project yet.
Xolalpa's camera placement and lighting set an uneasy tone for the film, made even more tense by Summera Howell's chilling performance. Sweet Caroline seamlessly blends art with entertainment, walking a thin line between Suspense and outright Horror at some points. The audience can truly feel Caroline's downward spiral into madness.
With its jarring, anxiety-inducing cinematography, Jorge Xolalpa Jr.'s masterful direction, and strong performances all around, Sweet Caroline is one to watch out for if you have the chance to see it.
