Should You Watch:
Fresh is a horror/thriller movie, and if you’re into those kinds of movies, then this one’s for you. Although this one isn’t the typical slasher or jump scare type of movie, Fresh focuses more on the psychological. Being a movie about cannibalism, this one is sure to make one’s stomach churn. If you’re into these kinds of movies, you should definitely watch. But beware of the blood, gore, and generally disturbing topics. Side note, there wasn’t much that was comedic about this movie.
It has been a while since we’ve tackled a horror movie here at Prairie Grown Reviews, but here we are with a new review for Fresh! Contrary to other horror movies we’ve watched, this one is more on the psychological side. Being a movie about cannibalism, I didn’t really know what to expect, but what we got from this movie was pretty entertaining. For the most part, I was captivated by what was happening on screen. I especially liked the acting, since the leads really put everything into their roles. Sebastian Stan as the crazy was fun to watch, since I mainly relate him to the Winter Soldier in the Marvel side of things.
Plot wise, it was alright for a horror movie. It was pretty straightforward, but not too much really happened. I think the most captivating part was mainly the cannibalism and how the movie tackled this subject. It was entertaining to see how cannibalism came into play. With the way this movie is set up mainly within one house, it reminded me a lot of Parasite, the Korean thriller film.
Overall, Fresh was a captivating movie to watch. It might not have the strongest of plots, but the acting and the disturbing imagery will keep you interested enough. As stated before, give it shot if you like the genre, but be wary of disturbing images, alongside blood and gore.
