Held ★★★½

And Frightfest Digital is underway for October 2020. Kicking things off this time was HELD, after the rocky start at the August event it was key to have a strong start this time around and luckily HELD delivered. Tense, free flowing and fully engrossing, it felt a real treat and a workout of emotions at times. Using modern technology as its backdrop, the real focus was on relationships with all their secrets, hardships and problems on the table. Slick production and fine performances help deliver this clever thriller over the finish line. The small cast all deliver while a fine score echoes inside paranoid skulls. Something a bit different that isn’t afraid to show its hand of influences without fully putting them on the deck.
