Unsane, the movie that promotes Apple iPhones while scaring the crap out of you is what I want to talk about today. Steven Soderbergh is trying something new with his career of filmmaking and that is filming a movie entirely with an iPhone on a 1.5 million dollar budget. Tackling my favorite genre, horror/thriller, he is bringing a disturbing and compelling story to us on the conditions of the human mind and how it can become our worst enemy if driven to the point.
Claire Foy (Netflix’s The Crown) plays Sawyer Valentini, a woman who relocated from Boston to Pennsylvania to escape the dangerous environment she experienced while being a victim of a stalker. While trying to start over she is still being haunted by this and can’t seems to let go of the fear she talks with a psychologist who convinces her to unknowingly commit herself to a behavioral center and slowly starts to realize that once you check in you can’t check out. To make matters worse, she believes that her stalker has followed her to the hospital but the question is; is she telling the truth or going insane?
