Disappearance at Clifton Hill Review
I’ve never been a fan of slow burn movies but this one really surprised me.
Disappearance at Clifton Hill follows a girl called Abby who when she was seven years old saw the abduction of a young boy. Now many years later this event is still haunting her and she wants to find out the truth but as is with most thrillers the truth is never what it seems.
I really enjoyed this movie, usually for slow burn movies they’re very long with very long running times and are very slow. But this movie was just over an hour and a half long so while it was slow it still got through lots of plot points quickly and things were always going on. So the way this film played out made you want to keep watching rather than make you think I’m bored now can something happen.
This movie was one that really did intrigue me and I’m very glad I watched it because it was a fascinating story that felt very real and as if the situation could happen in real life. All of the characters were very well fleshed out so they all seemed believable and the way that people responded and acted just made sense to the situation at hand.
I will say however the ending wasn’t something I expected. I won’t spoil it here but it seemed to come out of left field and wasn’t something that you really saw coming. Now that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it because I did, but I I do wish they could flesh it out more because it started a whole new chapter of the story that was at the last page and it made me want to watch and continue watching for so much longer to actually find out what was happening. Maybe a sequel could be the answer to this conundrum.
If you’re thinking about watching this movie or if you like thrillers then I definitely recommend it. I wouldn’t let the slow burn tagline put you off because it is a really well put together slow and suspenseful movie that always has something going on. It will keep your interest from start to finish, and I do think that ending will keep you thinking about this movie for days afterwards to.
What do you think?
Until next time.
