The Housemaid, originally titled Cô Haû Gaí, is a Vietnamese horror/romance with a quite interesting distribution history, due to which I was compelled to check it out.
I asked on my twitter page (that’s @horroreviews) and in a Facebook group what movie would people want me to review between Habit and Blood Hunt.
Plot: Three female college students take a detour from their partying, enticed by a beautiful European woman who promises seclusion, safety and maybe even romance. What they get is a living hell where they are sold to the highest bidder whose fondest wish is to kill them slowly. Hostel: Part II also follows two American men who, on the flip side of the coin, are willing to pay to join an exclusive club where a life will end at their hands… (from IMDb).
I like movies that revolve around creepy cults, I’m always fond of indie horror and I’m developing quite a fascination for British horror films: all of that comes together in Brackenmore (trailer), a horror movie that is finally getting a VOD release after two years in which it was displayed in minor festivals.
Ever since it hit a few festivals in 2017, Revenge created an unreal buzz around itself. When Shutter and Amazon Prime finally released it straight to video, the movie got even more praise to the point it became the most critically acclaimed rape and revenge flick of all time (!)
*Skip the premise (first two paragraphs) if you want to check my take on the twelve movies and their trailers out straight away. Though I suggest you not to do so, since it will explain how I came up with this list*
