Horror Review: True Fiction (2020)

A young writer gets a job assisting her favourite horror writer, but she finds herself participating in an out-of-control psychological experiment.

I’ve had my eye on this film for a while now and after a long wait I finally got the chance to watch it.

If you had the chance to work with your favourite author, especially being an aspiring writer yourself, you’d jump at the chance. That’s how this film’s story starts off and it’s done well enough to introduce us to our lead character and let us know the set up in a short enough amount of time.

Even though it seems not much happens in the films opening it actually does an amazing job of setting up everything we need to know for the story to start unravelling, another thing that this film does well. It truly did hook me in and I found myself glued to the screen as the film twisted and turned until the end.

I’ll be honest with you, I wasn’t expecting too much from this feature, I was just anticipating another run of the mill story but this film exceeded that. Writer/Director Braden Croft keeps the story going at a steady enough pace that it never feels rushed but it always keeps you guessing.

Lead actress Sara Garcia plays her role brilliantly, the addition of veteran John Cassini makes for a fantastic pairing as the two seem to bounce off each other and it plays out extremely well on screen, which makes for great viewing. With beautiful camera work and an intense script you seriously can’t go wrong with this.

This is one of those films where the less you know about it, the better viewing experience you’ll have. I highly recommend this film, I think it’s actually one of my favourites from this year.
