Unsane

Thriller Horror


 

A young woman inadvertently commits herself to a mental institution.

"Unsane" is a deliberately schlocky, psychological thriller that traps its lead in a nightmarish scenario. Shot entirely on a camera phone, the murky style lends to the horror, transforming the mental facility into a dark, gloomy prison. Our involuntary patient features in almost every scene; her captivating and flighty performance is worth the admission alone. The film flips between paranoia and reality without playing tricks on its audience, and the disciplined approach renders the story all the more believable. Creeps up on you.
