When I read the description for Glorious (2022), I did a doubletake because there’s no way anyone would make a movie like that. Well, they did. For the most part, it was fun. Poor Wes is upset about the end of his relationship with his girlfriend, Brenda. He’s driving to make distance from the pain of his loss. 

Then Wes stops at a rest area where he gets drunk. He burns his belongings and wakes next to the fire pit the next day—his world changes when he goes inside the public restroom to vomit.

I loved the idea of this film and the twist. The gore, when there was some, was satisfying, but like so many other “horror” films of the decade/milenia, it wasn’t as frightening as I wanted. I wonder if it’s me? Have I watched so many horror movies that I’ve become desensitized? Or are these so-called slow burns how horror creators are doing it now? I hope I’m desensitized.

That doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy Glorious. It was great, just not off the charts scary, and only one bit that caused my sphincter to compress. 

4 Stars

I gave Glorious 4 out of 5 Stars.
