ENTRANCE is a subtle psychological thriller centered upon Suzy (Suziey Block), a young woman in Los Angeles who can't get comfortable in her own skin. She's haunted by nostalgia, has no real friends, and finds herself wandering aimlessly through life in the city. Suzy now feels stuck, her part-time-turned-full-time job at a coffee house was never meant to be forever. With each day she finds it increasingly difficult to put on a smile for strangers while making their lattes. Her alienation begins to stretch into the deeper corners of her life. She comes to find herself unable to connect with anyone, let alone her roommate Karen, whose life Suzy wishes was her own. Soon, what should be the simplest of everyday interactions twist and distort into the threatening. Suzy can't shake the gnawing suspicion that a true menace grows just outside her field of vision. She falls hard out of love with the city, but it doesn't want to let her go. When she scrambles to take control of her life, her anxiety rises to a fever pitch that boils over into awaking nightmare.
Well done! Great indie horror, love the slow burn with a great payoff in the end! If you like films like The House of the Devil (Ti West) then check this one out! Awesome!
Truly Affecting and Disturbing
This was the best horror film I've seen in the past 5 years. It's incredible that it was done on such a low budget, and I commend the filmmakers for doing such a great job. It's gritty, realistic, suspenseful, and you don't see it coming until it catches you by surprise. Highly recommended. for any fan of the genre.
We The Voyeurs
Beautifully understated. And the ending truly does the rest of the film justice. The craftsmanship was very good, I was not constantly aware that I was watching a low budget piece. The irony is that as the villain's obsession with the protagonist grows, so do we the viewers in essence stalk her. And although violence is not articulated in detail, what makes it more disturbing we voyeurs/ the audience's true understanding of its devastating impact upon the protagonist. Suffice to say, this story has been told before, but Entrance articulates it particularly well.
As a woman myself, this plot line is particularly chilling.
