"The Empty Man' (2020)


Recommended Posts

Disney bought 20th Century Fox and dumped this superior horror thriller- James Bradge Dale gives an intense performance as a man searching for a missing girl who might have gotten involved in a mysterious cult.    You can see it on HBO Max

For me it was a mixed bag. The opening is very good - mood, setting, performances and the underground "shrine" are all excellent. But after the prologue, when Dale shows up and the action moves to the US, it quickly becomes what appears to be another substandard urban-legend/boogeyman slog. It picks up a bit later on (particularly at the abandoned campground), and the final 10 minutes or so are intriguing, Overall, I thought it was a mess, overlong (137 minutes), and at times irritating, but worth a watch for the opening, and for some of the ideas. 

The reaction on social media seems to be mostly positive.
