The Bad 

“Starts a little slowly”. 

“Not really a Horror”. 

“Backstories aren’t painted clearly”. 

Introduction 

Following a pleasant cycle spin from my new home, I settle down to bring you an enticing Horror movie review …

Sun Don’t shine is a 2012, (Crime, Drama, Horror),  according to IMDb. 

Impact 

Whilst the movie took a while to captivate the viewer, this gradually improved throughout. 

Sound was used well at points, and facial expression effectively enhanced moments of tension. It would be wrong to characterise the occurrences within this movie as a typical Horror; They suit more of a mystery vibe, punctuated by fluctuating distress. 

Whilst character relations were clearly strained, the source of evil wasn’t clearly depicted, although perhaps implied by the roles and societal norms one would expect. 

Threads of backstories emerged throughout, yet lacked clarity. 

Neglect and rejection were key themes throughout the movie. 

Blurred graphics depicted intensity well, with an ear-ringing silence at such moments. They appeared to reflect mental states of characters well too.

The ending was psychologically challenging, and certainly thought-provoking, and made sense given the way events were turning, but nonetheless wasn’t too predictable. 

Conclusion 

Psychological and atmospheric.
