Things Heard & Seen (2021)


Catherine Clare… trades life in 1980s Manhattan for a remote home in the tiny hamlet of Chosen, New York … She soon comes to sense a sinister darkness lurking both in the walls of the ramshackle property—and in her marriage (Letterboxd)
In its dialogue, editing, and overall presentation it’s a bit clunky and contrived; the writing and acting isn’t great and while some of the camerawork is cool, the saturated colours make it look cheap overall. The unraveling story can’t help but compel, however, with its eclectic imagery and philosophizing, spooky past-future parallels (adding nuance to the ghost motif), and riveting central relationship and character arcs filled with lust, lies, and murder that bring it all to a haunting end.
6.5/10 (Alright)
