Sometimes I worry about the horror movies Netflix says I need to watch, which was the case with A Classic Horror Story (2021). It is an Italian film with voiceovers, or if you speak Italian, you can watch it with the original audio; that has no bearing on the movie. I just thought I’d point it out because some don’t like voiceovers or subtitles.
The opening sequence was a great hook that faded into a scene with a young woman waiting for her ride-share. Once we meet the cast, it doesn’t take long for the fun to start. As expected by the creators of A Classic Horror Story, I’m confused about where they are when they wake after the accident. I kept thinking, didn’t they hit a tree?
The creepiness quickly escalates as they explore the strange world where they find themselves. Since I don’t want to give too much away, I won’t share many details about what they discover and who finds them. I will say I was pleased with the terror they shared with me and the gore they displayed. Then comes an unexpected twist for the finale that made me delighted by its cleverness.
I enjoyed A Classic Horror story, and I think you will too. I gave it 4.5 out of 5 Stars.
