Such Sights To Show You: Let Us Prey

Day 3: Game of Thrones‘ Liam Cunningham is imprisoned in The Woman’s Pollyanna McIntosh’s police station. What makes the inverted prisoner formula effective is strong performances from the leads and deliberate pacing to ramp up the tension before opening the floodgates. If Last Shift was a police station horror movie that thrived on restraint and precision, then Let Us Prey is a police station horror movie that excels through messiness. Cunningham is giddily menacing without devouring the scenery. Not excessively violent or gross, suitable for a pretty wide audience, either hardcore or casual.

Dana Gustafson loves his wife and children, who tolerate him during moments leading up to writing articles like these. He has an unhealthy infatuation, despite proper medication, with horror movies, Marvel comics, and Westerns. He wishes you well.
