Review of Nefarious Film

May 28, 2023 0 Comments

If sometimes we are willing to put some things aside and forget about normalcy and even standing while watching horror movies, there is no reason why we can’t enjoy Nefarious. The filmmakers are now known for popular franchises based on Christianity, and there are some of their points in the handling, but the movie does not rely on propaganda when building the handling. Of course, we could do without the ending, but in essence there is a well-made movie here. Objectively, we can’t deny its production value, some of its good performances and the confident look of a horror movie that, even without fear or spilled courage, carries its message to its very special goal.

Sean Patrick Flannery plays a convicted serial finisher who needs to be examined by a psychiatrist on the day of his execution. The guy responsible for this is finishing himself in a crazy self-destruction, so Dr. James Martin replaces him. Everything seems normal until the finisher explains that he is actually an entity called Nefarious. What follows is a… Conversation. Nefarious points out that Martin will have started three executes before the end of his session. Your conversation leads to something like this, but it’s not as literal as it seems. Demons can deceive, as we have seen countless times.

I’m not going to get into the politics of the film, because everyone can do this for themselves. I think sometimes you can enjoy horror if it forces you enough to cheer up the good guys, or in my matter the bad guys. This is a possession movie that doesn’t rely on visual effects or creepy sound design to make us believe that nefarious means business. Sometimes it’s just about what he says. Personally, I would have loved for the audience to have had doubts about whether he was really passion or not. A certain sequence in the third act will confirm this.

Flannery is good enough to remind me of his best performances, but in this one he gets to the end without losing control. In fact, his seriousness is indispensable for Jordan Belfis Martin to get involved. He plays an passion serial finisher whose true personality is hidden by an intelligent entity whose messages are very interesting. The complete answer to “diversity”? Classic demon shenanigans.

Try it. Maybe you like it or hate it. But in any matter, you will determine it yourself, and not because someone told you online.
