“It will all be worth it…”
Clock released on April 28th 2023 on Hulu. The psychological horror film stars Dianna Agron, Jay Ali, Melora Hardin, and Saul Rubinek. It runs for an hour and thirty minutes.
Ella agrees to enroll in a clinical trial to fix her “broken” biological clock after she receives pressure from her friends and family to have a baby.
Here is the trailer:
Clock is a twisted film that will stick with you long after it’s over, making you contemplate the real horror embedded in societal pressure. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…
It seems like the pressure is everywhere, right? You need to go to school and have a job and get married and have kids all before a certain age or you’ll be forced to answer endless questions from your family, friends, and even strangers about why you’re not trying to be like everyone else? Only sometimes our lives take us down a different path, but trying to justify that to yourself and to others can be exhausting and this film really takes a magnifying glass to these issues, making the premise extremely believable and compelling.
This film has a lot of dark and twisted moments that will have you cringing in your seat. I felt extremely uncomfortable during certain scenes, but I think that was sort of the point. I actually really loved the concept of this film and I think it was executed really well. It tackled so many issues without overdoing things.
Dianna Agron is breathtakingly captivating.
This is probably my favorite role by her yet and she really showed off her range in this film. I loved her character and felt myself drawn to her in so many ways. She didn’t hold back at all in this one, making the psychological and physical descent into darkness that much more riveting.
Extreme body horror and some triggering moments…
If body horror isn’t for you, be warned. There were some moments that were tough to watch. Also, if this film’s premise seems to hit too close to home for you, you may want to hold off on this one.
I also had a few unanswered questions by the time I got to the end of the film, but this wasn’t a major con.
So am I in or out?
A disturbing and eye-opening watch!
This film was so unique and thought-provoking. I think it also had a really important life-lesson embedded within it, which I don’t see everyday in horror films so this was a welcomed addition.
I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Clock in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

DON’T TAKE THE JOB…
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.
