One of the Sundance films I was personally most excited to see was Black Rock, Katie Aselton’s survival horror tale that followed three childhood friends as they set aside their personal issues and reunite for a girls’ weekend on a remote island off the coast of Maine. One wrong move turns their weekend getaway into a deadly fight for survival.
Written and produced by the Mumblecore kings known as the Duplass brothers, who burst onto the scene with their Sundance entry Baghead, I expected a bit more. Here’s what Ryan Daley had to say:
“There’s plenty of nail-biting tension in ‘Black Rock’, but that tension fades with every stupid decision the characters make, and audience frustration eventually builds to the bursting point. It‘s one of those movies that makes you want to yell at the screen.”
