Horror Marathon Day 17: The Taking of Deborah Logan


Flipping through Netflix I found this film, it’s new and I thought I’d give it a try.  Unlike some of the others this month, I really liked this one.

I really like the concept of old age, dementia or some mental illness being a horror film.  You have this old lady who does crazy, harmful things and we never know, until half way through what is the cause.  It’s shot like a documentary, which is fine it works, but I bet you could have done it as a straight narrative and it might have turned out better.

I think the main characters are good, not a big fan of the journalist and cameraman, but it’s not distracting.  There are some good scares and I think it’s entertaining.  One of the better horror films out there in recent years that is also out on Netflix, so it’s pretty much free to watch, can’t complain about that.

So, my recommendation is go see it, I like the concept of a spooky senile lady.
