They Look Like People (2015)

All I’d heard going in to this is that people seemed quite pleased when it hit Netflix. Considering the offerings there are getting worse for horror film fans, I was fine with a quality psycho-thriller. For the tinfoil hat wearing types, or those that have lived closely with those exhibiting untreated paranoid schizophrenia, this is a good watch. I love how the illness is portrayed and how the lead experiences the world around him. I’ve grumbled about mental illness in film before and They Look Like People is the dead opposite. It is what it is here, and they do look like people.

It also has that kind of ending I consider perfect, though I’m sure some viewers may disagree due to lack of riding off into some sort of sunset with handfuls of clonazepam and a nice shot of haldol.
