I See You – Film Review

I See You is a crime horror film which follows a broken family who encounter unusual activity around their home. Meanwhile, their quiet town searches for a missing child.

When ten-year-old Justin Whitter (Riley Caya) vanishes, investigator Greg Harper (Jon Tenney) is assigned to the job in taking lead of the search. While trying to stay focused on the job at hand, Greg struggles put aside his own marriage problems at home with his wife Jackie Harper (Helen Hunt). As the married couple face some difficult issues between the two of them, it puts their son Connor (Judah Lewis) in an uncomfortable position and makes the home environment toxic.

The first part of the film sets the mood for a suspenseful crime/thriller, but shortly after it takes a turn when the out of the ordinary activity begins to happen around the household. You start to question if something supernatural is happening or if this could have possibly been a prank from a family friend.

It has been a while since I’ve seen Helen Hunt star in a film. Honestly, it took me a little while to realise she was playing the mother, as I didn’t recognise her at first. Despite her new looks, her acting is still superb. After seeing Hunt star in this film and the main protagonist, it has sparked some interest in me to look into some of her previous works that I haven’t seen yet. I See You was a great reminder to how much I really enjoy Helen Hunt’s acting.

I really enjoyed watching I See You. There was never a dull moment. It was like every scene had something that kept me on the edge of my seat while trying to guess what was going on. One moment, I’m trying to figure out what happened to the missing child, and the next I’m trying to piece together the mysterious activity is happening in the Harper house. Honestly, highly recommended!

I See You is now available to stream across Australia on Netflix.
