Starring William Ash and Christine Bottomley, Hush is
directed by Mark Tonderai & Ryosuke Hashiguchi which is a thriller
horror that seems to be based on an old urban legend with a premise of
how far you would go for someone you love.
The story revolves around a couple who are on their way
to a party and unfortunately for Zakes (William Ash) and his girlfriend
Beth (Christine Bottomley), their lives are soon about to be overturned.
To compound the situation, the drama heats up between
them from their constant squabbling and whether they can reconcile and
move on is questioned by the viewer.
While driving towards the party on this dark and rainy
night (cliché alert), Zakes witnesses a woman being held hostage in the
van in front of them. Of course Zakes and Beth decide to open Pandora's
box when they follow this van to a service station where their nightmare
is about to begin.
Although clichéd and predictable at times, Hush is
definitely one of those movies that keeps you on the edge of your seat
which has some great performances by these UK actors and it's refreshing
that it's not American.
At the end of the day, writer and director Mark Tonderai
does create a Generation Y horror, however if you can ignore some of the
plot inconsistencies and stupidity of the characters, Hush is actually
and enjoyable movie that features some good cinematography which needs
to watched in the dark and with the surround sound on.
Fun yet forgettable!
