Interesting story backed up with pretty ordinary direction
Return,no doubt falls in the category of descent horror films but it
just fails to capitalize the advantage of good storyline.Joanna is a
young lady who hear voices & see strange visions.She was stalked by an
image.She did not have any idea of what's going on until she finally
takes initiative to uncover the truth. Sarah Michelle Gellar has always
been the charm of horror movies.She has already shown her talent in 'I
know what you did last summer','Grudge' & 'Scream(2)'.Return is another
collection to this same trend.
Overall what Return was needed was pace to prevent its viewers from
boredom else its not a bad choice to give a look upon..
Korean cinema feel with redneck creepiness
The Return is an effectively suspenseful psychological thriller and not
the standard type of horror movie that the trailer implies. It has the
feel of Korean cinema with redneck overtones, which add to the overall
vibe. Many reviews have complained that there are'nt any jump scares
and the story evolves slowly, but that makes the uneasiness all the
more effective. Please don't let the misleading trailer cloud your
judgement. Immerse yourself in the story and you'll appreciate this
film. The cast do a great job, especially Sarah Michelle Gellar who, as
always gives a believability to the character of Joanna and creates a
vulnerable person that can be easily empathised with. A movie that
should be seen more than once and that, in time, will be given the
accolades that it deserves..
