Because the saying goes, hell is different folks, and that is actually true for the ghastly “Speak No Evil.” I really like the horror style with my complete coronary heart, however typically a movie comes alongside that I by no means, ever need to see once more. That is the case with “Communicate No Evil,” a film so bleak and merciless that it is certain to infuriate some. I actually would not advocate it to everybody, particularly somebody in search of an inexpensive, fast scare. However in case you’re thirsting for one thing existentially dreadful, look no additional.
Whereas on trip, Danish couple Bjørn and Louise meet Patrick and Karin, a Dutch couple, who’re outwardly pleasant. Possibly too pleasant. So pleasant, in truth, that they invite Bjørn and Louise and the couple’s daughter, Agnes, to spend the weekend with them. Now, the social reject that I’m, I’d shortly say “Thanks, however no thanks!” to this whole thought. Spend the weekend with folks I barely know? Not my cup of tea. However Bjørn and Louise go together with the concept. Nearly instantly issues develop awkward and the vibe grows more and more threatening, and but Bjørn and Louise do not need to offend their hosts and maintain placing up with Patrick and Karin’s unusual habits. To say extra would break the gut-punch that’s the movie’s closing minutes, however simply know that “Communicate No Evil” will not be for the squeamish. It is not even that the finale is especially gory. It is simply so relentlessly merciless and nasty that these unprepared for it are in for fairly a shock.
