The years have been cruel to ‘Léon: The Professional’, the once highly regarded films popularity has dwindled over the last few years, for one reason or another.
” ‘The Hand That Rocks the Cradle’ brings a whole new meaning to the nanny from hell.
Peyton seems to be the perfect nanny, but she secretly harbours a dark secret.
Her decent into madness began after her husband killed himself after being left humiliated. With revenge on her mind, she targets an unexpecting family.
She's no Mrs. Doubtfire.
It has been stated by many that ‘The Ones Below’ has traces of Roman Polanski’s work throughout, and this is certainly clear for one of his first films ‘Repulsion’ (https://www.theguardian.com/film/2016/feb/21/the-ones-below-review-shades-of-polanski-in-chilling-pregnancy-potboiler).
At the heart of the story, a troubled woman’s life plunges into chaos when she begins to see visions that push her into madness.
For his first English language film, ‘Repulsion’ is a fine turn from the director who is at his haunting best.
She spirals into madness.
Moving away from the rom-com genre, Colin Firth takes the lead in ‘Trauma’.
The British actor stars as Ben, a man recovering from a car crash that took the life of his wife.
Looking to move away from his troubles, he starts a fresh life. But when he strikes up a friendship with a younger girl, he begins to be plagued by visions of his dead wife.
His memories may destroy him.
Arguably no film has dealt with paranoia quite like John Carpenter managed to conjur up with ‘The Thing’.
The ‘Halloween’ director once again teams with Kurt Russell, placing him and a small crew in the middle of Antarctica.
Paranoia soon kicks in when a shapeshifting entity appears and takes the form of the men, leaving the survivors guessing who’s who. With more and more being picked off, the surviving men must battle with the creature before they themselves are targetted.
A chilling paranoi tale.
We finish with another Roman Polanski film for what is one of his very best, ‘Rosemary’s Baby’.
In this movie like ‘The Ones Below’, Mia Farrow stars as Rosemary Woodhouse, a young woman recently moved into a new apartment with her husband.
Things take a sinister turn when it becomes apparent that there are more to her neighbours than meets the eye. When she discovers she’s pregnant, she is left isolated and paranoid.
These neighbours aren't so friendly.
These are my recommendations for films like ‘The Ones Below’. Let me know what you think of my choices.
