After being captured by her owner, a Confederate general (Eric Lange), Eden (Janelle MonĆ”e) once again begins to plot her escape from his plantation. Thatā€™s how this horror thriller begins and after a while we realize thereā€™s a huge plot twist that brings a modern relevance to the story. Operatic in style at times (a very effective opening sequence), and anchored by a terrific lead performance, this film desperately wants to fuse M. Night Shyamalan with Jordan Peele but has no scares and feels much too obvious.

2020-U.S. 105 min. Color. Widescreen. Written and directed byĀ Gerard Bush, Christopher Renz. Music: Nate Wonder, Roman GianArthur. Cast: Janelle MonĆ”e (Veronica Henley/Eden), Jena Malone (Elizabeth), Eric Lange (Blake Denton), Jack Huston, Kiersey Clemons, Gabourey Sidibe.
