Final Girl

Meg (Jennifer Kim) is trying to find a new normal after being part of a brutal kidnapping that she barely escaped. One way that she's achieving self-care is to take a trip to Cape Codd with her husband Scott (Kentucker Audley). His family has a huge countryside compound that will give her the peace that she needs until his cousin Madeline (Marin Ireland) shows up. Her snobbery unleashes nightmares in Meg as she starts to deal with what she's live through as well as the truth behind why she was abducted.

Meg and Scott's relationship begins to unravel as an old woman shows up in the woods and Meg begins to feel that Madeline and her husband are keeping secrets from her. Of course there's a much darker story behind all of this, as you just knew there was.

Director and writer Olivia West Lloyd has put together a movie that slowly makes you wonder who is right, why Meg has gone through all of this and whether anyone can be trusted. I always wanted to see a movie where a Final Girl tries to deal with the PTSD that had to come from dealing with a horrific situation. This does that but puts her into an even worse one.

A bit confusing story saved by great acting...

Stumbling upon the 2023 movie "Somewhere Quiet" here in 2024, by random luck, and seeing it was a movie that I hadn't heard about, much less seen, then of course I opted to sit down and watch it and see what writer and director Olivia West Lloyd had to offer.

The movie's synopsis definitely sounded interesting enough, I will say that much. However, I found the narrative to be somewhat slow paced and confusing. Sure, the storyline had some interesting aspects to it, and I guess that writer and director Olivia West Lloyd managed to portray the mental breakdown of Meg rather well.

One of the drawbacks to the narrative in "Somewhere Quiet" is that the audience is left with a bunch of unanswered questions throughout the course of the narrative. But writer and director Olivia West Lloyd definitely was on to something interesting and good here with this 2023 mystery thriller.

The movie has a rather small cast ensemble, and I wasn't familiar with the actors and actresses, except for actress Marin Ireland. But it should be noted that the acting performances were good, and leading actor Kentucker Audley (playing Scott) and Jennifer Kim (playing Meg) carried the movie quite well.

I have to applaud Jennifer Kim for her performance in the movie, because it was really great. Her performance as Meg really made up for a somewhat weird and a little bit confusing narrative.

"Somewhere Quiet" was listed as a thriller and horror, but it is in fact a mystery thriller.

My rating of "Somewhere Quiet" lands on a six out of ten stars and Jennifer Kim is really the driving force behind this movie.

Can we get a lie detector test up in here?

I felt a bit emotionally exhausted after watching this one, so you know that means something in and of itself. This is a slow burn psychological horror/thriller about trust, trauma and discerning what is reality and what isn't.

Some people are going to find this boring, but I couldn't unglue my eyes from the screen. It was so captivating and atmospheric in the strangest way. There was something about this one that felt very unique and special.

The acting here was pretty stellar all around. The husband had some cringe moments when upset/crying but I think it was supposed to come across as ingenuine. But truly, our three leads here did a really great job.

This is not the most fulfilling movie as far as story goes, so be forewarned that you might feel a little... wanting at the end. There isn't a whole lot of background explained and is left pretty open ended. I would have loved a little more explanation/closure but I understand that wasn't really the point here. But yet also the point because she didn't know what was going on either haha. There was just a lot left up in the air... but it also added to the confusion and atmosphere.

I feel like if there was just a little more to the story it would have easily tipped over into the 7's but regardless this was a really solid watch that I would definitely recommend.
