The Girl In The Photographs :- Watch The Girl In The Photographs on Youtube on Fire, After having just seen the other Oz Perkins-written 2015 horror film February, and adoring it, I was hoping for a similarly well-crafted film here, with a nuanced screenplay which dares to contribute to the horror genre in new ways. Got the opposite an extremely low-concept, poor execution slasher. I hope he follows the path of that other film in the future. A grocery store checkout clerk keeps having mysterious photographs of murdered and mutilated women left for her to find around her workplace and other locations. Seven of them so far. The cops think it is “art” so they don’t bother doing absolutely anything about it (what?) at any point, even after the girl is stalked (what?). Then some famous photographer and his posse of models comes to town because he’s “inspired” by these photographs, and wants to recreate them. Then slasher.I’ll just get the biggest problem out of the way this slasher has absolutely zero tension. I feel like it tries to heavily borrow from better films, but achieves only lifeless recreations which fail to understand how to create tension. Most obviously this was clearly inspired by the Strangers, down to the masks. So expect a LOT of scenes that make zero sense if examined from a “why would anyone do this other than for the camera” perspective. Like the villains just lurking randomly in the background and appearing and disappearing and so on and so forth. On top of that.
