OK, I’m going to start out by saying that He’s Out There (2018) has very few original ideas, if any, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the hell out of it. I mean, come on, who doesn’t love a stalker/slasher film, especially when it isn’t clear why said stalker/slasher is doing it.
The red string that the young sisters follow to the strange picnic site in the woods is chilling, giving an Alice in Wonderland vibe, and making me want the Mad Hatter to jump from the trees and pour tea. There was great build up to the events, though I already knew what was going to happen, but it didn’t stop me from jumping with glee when the action began.
The mask wasn’t even original, though they add some colors to it, giving it a face-lift of sorts. There was one surprise for me, though, who I thought was responsible turned out to be a victim, too.
I give He’s Out There 4 out of 5 Stars, because it checked off all the boxes for me, and plus I didn’t have to think about the deep meaning behind it. I don’t need deep meaning in horror, save it for chick-flicks.
