Spoiler-Free Review of “Fall” (2022) in Theaters: Suspenseful Survival Thriller

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“If you’re scared of dying, don’t be afraid to live…”

Fall (2022) released in theaters on August 12th 2022. The adventure thriller film stars Grace (Fulton) Currey, Virginia Gardner, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Mason Gooding. It runs for an hour and forty-seven minutes.

One year after a tragic accident, Becky agrees to climb a 2000 foot abandoned radio tower with her best friend Hunter, but when they wind up stranded at the very top, they need to work together to find a way to survive.

Here is the trailer:

Fall is extremely intense with plenty of edge-of-your-seat moments that will worsen anyone’s fear of heights that much more. Is it worthy of YOUR next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Nail-biting moments throughout!

I am not a huge fan of heights, but wow I don’t even think I can get on a small step ladder after this one. This movie was so intense and brutal! My heart was pounding the entire time. The movie reminded me a lot of The Ledge (which I also really enjoyed and is now streaming on Hulu), but the radio tower environment made it a unique watch. If you enjoy survival thrillers, you’re in the right place.

Characters to root for.

Becky and Hunter were both really likable characters. The film mostly focused on them, but it did bring up the past a little bit and some emotional baggage. I never thought it took away from the core of the film, however. Sometimes films can force these interactions and flashbacks, but this film kept the pacing going without skipping a beat.

The Cons:

Somewhat unbelievable…

I don’t really have many cons for this movie. I did find it a little suspicious that there was a “no trespassing” sign, but no mentions that this tower could be extremely unstable? I guess common sense would tell someone not to climb this tower, but then we wouldn’t have this amazing and intense movie.

So am I in or out?

I’m in!!!

A brutal and intense watch worth your time!

If you’re looking for a good thriller, you should absolutely check this movie out. I also highly recommend watching The Ledge on Hulu. After seeing both movies, I’ll be staying on the ground for quite a while…

It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.

My supernatural thriller Girl Number Thirteen is out now! I hope you enjoy!

  1. I just saw Fall! I probably wouldn’t have seen it if not for the trailer that I saw on the big screen with Where the Crawdads Sing. I didn’t love the story, but the suspense was sky high. My heart was racing too and I can’t stop thinking about a certain thing that happens near the end (I’m sure you know what I’m referring to). Unfortunately, I feel like Fall is so independent that not enough people are talking about it. My entire theater was empty and I’ve been dying to discuss the movie with someone.
