“You sure you don’t have a phone?”
Grimcutty released on Hulu on October 10th 2022. The supernatural horror film stars Sara Wolfkind, Shannyn Sossamon, Usman Ally, and Alona Tal. It runs for approximately an hour and forty minutes.
A teen girl is plagued by a frightening internet challenge that is manifested by the hysteria of her parents.
Here is the trailer:
Grimcutty feels very much like a cross between Slender Man and Pulse, highlighting the danger of technology and what happens when parents overreact to social media exposure. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…
Tries to do something different…
While this is hardly the first film I have seen about the dangers of the internet, I thought Grimcutty made a valiant effort to think outside the box with its concept. While I wouldn’t necessarily say that I was really terrified throughout my watch, I appreciated the idea behind the film and I think it executed a lot of things really well.
Some familiar faces…
Shannyn Sossamon starred in One Missed Call back in 2008 so it was nice to see her in this film. She is no stranger to a killer phone…
I thought all of the characters did a good job with what they were given. I’m not sure that anyone really stood out, but the performances were believable enough to keep me interested.
The Grimcutty isn’t that scary…
Sure, it’s weird looking and odd, but it didn’t frighten me the way some supernatural creatures have. Even though I preferred this film to Slender Man, the actual Slender Man is a lot scarier than this guy. If the Grimcutty was truly frightening, this film may have worked a lot better, but it was honestly laughable at times.
I also thought this film was longer than it needed to be. I didn’t need anything dragged out on this one.
So am I in or out?
I’m in about 75 percent…
An interesting concept with some entertaining moments.
This film was actually a lot better than I thought it would be. If you enjoy films like Slender Man and pretty much any horror film involving technology, you’ll feel right at home with this one.
I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Grimcutty in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

A VACATION TO DIE FOR…
When sisters, Nina and Gemma are vacationing in Hawaii with their friends, they get invited to an exclusive party on a private island that seems too good to be true. There’s only one rule…they can’t miss their ferry at midnight or they’ll have to wait until morning to leave the island. Only they didn’t realize that breaking this rule meant they would be hunted down on the island one by one.
Who will make it off the island alive?
I hope you enjoy my new island thriller!
