The Corridor

2010 / d. Evan Kelly
Five lifelong friends reunite for a remote weekend getaway, after a horrific tragedy befell them, and threatened to tear them apart. Filmed against the stark elemental backdrop of a cold and isolated Canadian winter, there is a far more to this character-driven film than would first seem. Subtle twists and the mere threat of violence hangs steadily throughout the film, forcing the viewers to fear for the characters’ lives. Despite the supernatural element–the unknown evil of the corridor itself–it is the unpredictability and darkness within the characters themselves that leave you afraid and deeply disturbed. Extremely creative and intense, writer Josh MacDonald and director Evan Kelly do a fantastic job of exploring new methods for scaring genre audiences who think they’ve seen everything.
