Kristy (2014) Review

Kristy is a 2014 horror film directed by Olly Blackburn, and is about a college girl (Justine) who makes a terrible decision of staying in campus during the Thanksgiving break because… of a reason that I’m sure makes perfect sense.

She ends up having a Home Alone-esque adventure in the abandoned campus which makes for a perfect family film.

I am absolutely lying, she undergoes the most horrifically messed up game of marco-polo of all time.

During a particularly sad trip to the local corner shop, she stumbles upon Ashley Greene (Violet) who doesn’t look super great if I’m perfectly honest with you.

Ashley Greene and her gang of aluminium foil masked stooges are sadistic and obsessed with torturing girls, dubbing them as “Kristy” while filming it. Unfortunately for our protagonist Justine, she is their target.

To be honest, if you guys are making the effort to elaborately set up this situation, I would invest in a better quality camera and have a more menacing grammar when I text my victim (but then again their costume consists of aluminium foil so I’m not sure what their budget is).

Though the film does fall into the unfortunate horror/thriller tropes that include a semi-predictable storyline and the rampant overuse of jumpscares it is still entertaining to watch. I was particularly impressed with the very picturesque cinematography by Crille Forsberg.

Overall, in relation to most of the contemporary horror films that are being released, this is not a bad film. It’s the kind of film that’s probably fun to watch with friends when you feel especially sadistic and want to feel something for the first time.

Rating: not a bad film.
