[Review] Radius (2017): A Layered Sci-Fi Thriller With WTF Plot Twists — by Jeff Mohr

Jeff Mohr jumped at the opportunity to review  Radius (2017) when he saw it on the Gruesome Magazine review board. The film was right in his wheelhouse: a Sci-Fi thriller with a WTF premise and a couple WTF plot twists. Either or both of the two stars – Diego Klattenhoff (The Blacklist, Homeland, Pacific Rim) and Charlotte Sullivan (Chicago Fire, Rookie Blue, The Colony) – are on screen for nearly the entire film and do excellent jobs taking their characters through a series of developments and revelations. The poster tagline,   “Don’t get too close,” is a downright sneaky indicator of what’s to come without giving too much away. In Radius, writers/directors  Caroline Labrèche and  Steeve Léonard have crafted a layered, slow-burn,  Sci-Fi thriller that is well written, directed, shot, and acted. Seek it out!

Radius (2017) 4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)

Available on VOD November 10, 2017.

Jeff lives smack dab in the middle of the cornfields of Iowa and is a long-time horror fan. His first remembered encounters with the genre were The Wizard of Oz, Tarzan gorilla chases, and watching the first broadcast of The Twilight Zone episode, "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge." While he now qualifies as an old fart, he strives to be an Old Boy. Paraphrasing Robert Bloch, he has the heart of a small boy. He keeps it in a jar on his desk.
