Did anyone catch the movie Kristy on Lifetime last weekend? It was supposed to air on Saturday night in their prime 8PM time slot, they had even been airing ads for about two weeks in advance. But when Saturday came, they ended up pulling it and airing it on Sunday at noon instead. Don't understand why, maybe they found it too intense for their target demo to air it at nighttime? Fortunately, my DVR automatically adjusted based on the title, so I was able to catch it. But even before Lifetime came into the mix, this was a movie the Weinsteins had acquired and planned to release theatrically, filmed in 2012. But like Mandy Lane before it, it just sat on a shelf. Then, a few weeks ago, out of blue it was announced that it would be airing on Lifetime. On to the movie. Don't let the Lifetime thing or the distribution woes scare you off. This is a really terrific little genre movie. I loved it! If I had to describe the plot and keep it brief, I'd say it's a teen movie version of You're Next, but instead of a family gathering at a remote estate, this one follows a girl who is staying alone on an isolated campus over Thanksgiving break. You would think a movie that focuses almost entirely on one girl wandering around a college campus would get a little boring or visually uninteresting, but it's really beautifully filmed and rich with atmosphere. Even simple shots of the girl wandering down an empty dorm corridor are filled with dread or the fear that something could jump out at any moment. Once the bad guys do show up, it's an unrelenting cat-and-mouse chase that doesn't let up until the very end. Don't expect gore, but what it lacks in blood in makes up for in suspense. I got really into it. It also helps that the lead, Haley Bennett (The Hole, The Haunting Of Molly Hartley), is so easy to root for. She's likable, charismatic, smart, and when she fights back she means business. Even Twilight starlet Ashley Greene is suitable creepy as one of the baddies. I'm not sure if or when they'll be airing it again, but keep an eye on the Lifetime schedule for this one. It's a terrific little chase thriller that is so much better than its distribution fate. Hopefully it makes it to blu-ray in the US soon, because this is definitely one I'll be picking up.
