  • Stands apart from many other recent indie genre movie throwbacks given a flurry of endearingly creaky and lurid flourishes. ***.
  • not for the squeamish or the faint of heart - especially with its subject matter and manner of brutal filmmaking - but if you’re on board with the religious horror sub-genre, then they’re a lot to enjoy and takeaway. It will stay with you long after the movie ends.
  • Manages to provide a suspenseful and thought-provoking viewing experience, making it a respectable addition to the religious horror subgenre.
  • An interesting story steeped in faith and lore yet grounded in the staples of the horror film genre.  It has suspense, gore, weapons, etc. and so many of the usual tropes.  Most importantly, it has the legs to become a universe of its own with several sequels organically built in.
  • This film is not just a movie; it's an experience that will challenge your beliefs and leave you questioning the boundaries of good and evil. Don't miss out on this hauntingly enchanting journey into the unknown.
  • who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned thriller about ancient biblical prophecies and the end of times?
  • This kind of demonic horror is truly scary.
  • Gritty, foreboding and atmospheric.

Dangerous Waters

Beschikbaar voor VOD: 11 januari 2024
Regie: John Barr
Cast: Odeya Rush (Goosebumps, The Giver), Ray Liotta (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Goodfellas), Eric Dane (Grey's Anatomy, Euphoria)

De 19-jarige Rose en haar moeder Alma worden door Derek, moeder’s nieuwe vriend, uitgenodigd om mee te gaan op een zeiltocht naar Bermuda. Eenmaal op volle zee  worden ze aangevallen en Alma vermoord. Rose wordt achtergelaten, maar ze zal niet wijken voordat degenen die verantwoordelijk zijn voor de moord op haar moeder dood zijn.

  • TheGuardian: Ray Liotta, who in his final performance (he died during production) still has an offbeat intensity, like a deranged William Shatner. Barr keeps things motoring with a baleful zip.
  • Dangerous Waters is entertaining and deliriously daft and is firmly in the 'Saturday night pizza and a six pack' category but it’s a lot of fun and Odeya Rush at only 26 years of age is great in the role relishing every smack down.
  • Young Israeli American star Odeya Rush makes for a credible and engaging lead and both Eric Dane and the late Ray Liotta bring the required menace to proceedings with their usual aplomb.
  • Odeya Rush Kicks Ass.
  • It keeps offering more leading us to the surprise direction everything ends up going. Odeya Rush is brilliant in the leading role.
  • It securely anchors within its genre, offering a tumultuous voyage that will undoubtedly be enjoyed by those who dare to navigate its stormy narrative seas of survival, revelation, and retribution.
