The Sick trailer makes the early pandemic even scarier
#Sick #trailer #early #pandemic #scarier Welcome to Alaska Green Light Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
Fancy reliving those oh-so-memorable days of Spring 2020 when we all thought the world might end soon, The Stand-Style? No? Then you might want to skip Sick, a new movie from Horror Factory Blumhouse, although it might be a shame – that first trailer makes it look like one hell of a horror movie.
Of course, if you’re not ready for a film like this, I wouldn’t begrudge you one bit. There’s something haunting about watching people sanitize food. But then I guess there’s something liberating about not having to worry about sanitizing food when you’re being stalked by a serial killer. Damn, just look:

Our own Germain Lussier saw the film at the Fantastic Fest last September and said: “At under 90 minutes, Sick wastes no time putting Parker and Miri in extremely tense situations. Hyams isn’t shy about showing the bad guys in the picture, just out of the girls’ sight, building anticipation with every shot. And once things reach boiling point, what was primarily a slasher thriller morphs into a chase film with even more opportunities for innovative scares.
“Sick doesn’t reinvent the horror genre like [writer Kevin] Williamson did it once with Scream, but it takes some of the best parts of that film — like the way the killer was able to play with the victims and the audience — and puts them in a place and time that we can relate to can all identify. There are also a few revelations that add to the angst and suspense that give the film a real resonance. It’s fun and very well done… if you’re willing to treat Covid-19 with a bit of humor, which maybe not everyone is.”
Sick premieres on Peacock on Friday January 13th.
