This is a review of the movie Acolytes.
Wow. Acolytes is one of the tauter, engaging thrillers I’ve seen in a long time. Australian in origin, it is 100% suspenseful and thrilling. Acolytes starts with three friends , two boys and a girl, trying to get revenge against the rapist of the two boys. It ends up as a thriller horror with twists up until the end.
Imagine this, the man who raped you and your friend is released from prison and makes it a mission to exact revenge from you. At the same time, in the woods you witness the burial of a missing girl and you see the killer getting rid of the body.
The movie has a quick pace and it’s easy to understand what is going on, but it isn’t a movie you can put on in the background to enjoy. No, Acolytes requires some investment, but is pays off.
What I enjoyed about Acolytes:
Plot: Black mailing a serial killer. Creative and very enjoyable.
Suspense: There hasn’t been a movie in years that was more suspenseful.
Ending: How can I not ruin it? All I’ll say is exciting, sad and thrilling rolled up in a great big ball of pure awesome.
The movie has no problems, so if you want to be thrilled, scared and intrigued, watch Acolytes.
