Searching through Amazon Prime for something interesting to watch, I found She Will on Shudder. I have enjoyed my subscription to Shudder having found several top notch horror films to watch. Unfortunately, She Will never was able to grab my attention despite being a well shot and atmospheric film.
Directed by Charlotte Colbert, in her directorial debut, She Will was more psychological than straight horror, although the movie certainly has horror traits to it.
According to IMDB, “The film explores the story of Veronica Ghent (Alice Krige) who after a double mastectomy, goes to a healing retreat in rural Scotland with her young nurse Desi (Kota Eberhardt). She discovers that the process of such surgery opens up questions about her very existence, leading her to start to question and confront past traumas. The two develop an unlikely bond as mysterious forces give Veronica the power to enact revenge within her dreams.“
Alice Krige is sufficiently spooky as Veronica. Her performance was the part of the film that I was most intrigued by, but I just could not get into the story very much.
I am not sure what it was about She Will that failed to engage me in the story. It is a slow burn, but that is not something that bothered me in other movies of this type. The film had a definite tone that it was giving off, and it looked fine.
Perhaps it was too highbrow horror for my tastes. Maybe it is like The Witch, which was a film that everyone seemed to love, but I just could never get into it.
She Will is on Shudder if you want to give it a try.
