“I am really happy that we are finally doing this…”
Soft & Quiet premiered on Demand on November 4th 2022. The horror film stars Stefanie Estes, Olivia Luccardi, Eleanore Pienta, and Melissa Paulo. It runs for approximately an hour and thirty-two minutes.
A kindergarten teacher sets up a gathering with like-minded women when an encounter with a woman from her past turns their afternoon into something catastrophic.
Here is the trailer:
Soft & Quiet is beyond disturbing, as a chain of events unravels into something truly horrific. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…
I don’t know if this is more of a pro or a con. This was not an easy watch by any means and what I witnessed was truly horrific. Social horror movies are emerging more and more and this one really pushed the envelope without holding back. I didn’t know much going into this, but I was completely shocked by what I watched.
This type of horror film scares me more than other genres because it’s something that could actually happen. You never know what a person is thinking or capable of and that can be way more distressing than someone you already know wants to do you harm.
This was an uncomfortable watch, but that was sort of the point.
I think this film was shot in such a smart way. It almost mirrored the way everything unfolded in front of the audience, never breaking our concentration. Rather, we followed the camera and watched this horrible chain of events unfold across the screen in real time. I’ve seen too many films with messy camera work or gimmicks and this approach worked flawlessly, making this even more of a gripping watch.
The audience should be aware that this film depicts disturbing racial violence and pervasive language. The writer and the director really went all out with this to further the point of this film, but this will understandably be difficult for the audience to watch so just be aware of that.
So am I in or out?
The most disturbing film I have watched all year…
I’m not sure that I could ever re-watch this film, but it was completely shocking and the director made a really strong debut.
