Last Thursday, SM Cinema invited us to get intimate with Sawyer Valentini and her fears at the exclusive media screening of Unsane, held at the Director’s Club Cinema in SM Megamall.
The movie started a little slow, got confusing and us question Sawyer’s sanity in the middle but by the third act, the pace suddenly changed and became suspenseful– a bit too suspenseful that one of our companions inside the cinema even screamed louder than Sawyer (Claire Foy).
Unsane may not be one of those big movies everyone’s been talking about, but if you are looking for something different, and because its from Steven Soderbergh, better head on to the nearest SM Cinemas on March 21.
And if you really want to feel Sawyer’s isolation while enjoying leather seats and delectable snacks choose the luxe Director’s Club Cinema and you’ll be more than engrossed in this psychological terror that was insanely, ‘Unsane.”
Directed by Steven Soderbergh, Unsane is about a young woman who visits a psychiatrist, as she believes she is being stalked by her estranged boyfriend for the last two years. The real terror begins when she becomes involuntarily committed to a mental institution only to find out she’s been followed in by her greatest fear. Drugged and isolated, Valentini starts doubting herself—is everything her delusion?
Amazingly the movie is shot completely on an iPhone. Without compromising its grubby aesthetics and rich still frames, Unsane creates phenomenal tension to disconcert your composure and stimulate your senses as this psycho-thriller movie intensifies the paranoia not only of Valentini but also of the viewers.
If your taste in horror movies is more for psychological terror rather than ghosts and zombies, this movie is right up your alley. Bring your family and friends and test your limits with Unsane, screening exclusively in SM Cinema theatres nationwide starting March 21.
