Welcome to January. A month for belated Oscar releases and dark drivel. To that end, we have an indie thriller (promising), a horror film (meh), some foreign films, and some Oscar releases.
Escape Room is a psychological thriller based on the (somehow still on-going) activity wherein a group is locked in a room and needs to find clues to get out. It’s rated PG-13 so it’s probably not very scary. I’d recommend this Bob’s Burgers episode instead.
Rust Creek is a thriller. A young woman ends up lost in a Kentucky forest, aided and hunted by shadowy figures. (Kind of like “The Woods” episode of Atlanta but more violent?)
Mojin: The Worm Valley is a Mandarin-language action film. It is the sequel to Mojin: The Lost Legend.
