Lucky: Review

Lucky: Review – May (Brea Grant) is a successful author. However, one day her publisher tells her that her sales are not going so well and that her next book may be her last. She’s worried about the future, but her husband, Ted (Dhruv Uday Singh) tells her that there’s nothing to worry about and they go to bed. Later that night, May hears a disturbance from downstairs and wakes Ted but he tells her not to worry and that it’s only the man that comes to try and kill them every night.

Clearly disturbed by this, May investigates the noise and sure enough The Man (Hunter C. Smith) is there waiting for her. After he’s dealt with, May calls the police and tells them what happened and then her and Ted go back to sleep. However, in the morning May is concerned that Ted has no issues with this happening every night. Especially as the man is after her more than him.

May is left alone in the house and sure enough the man returns and she kills him, after which he disappears. After telling the police yet again about the intruder, she gets the feeling that nobody believes her so she decides to take matters into her own hands.

Lucky is a horror movie written Brea Grant and directed by Natasha Kermani. Cleverly using metaphors not only about how women are treated in society, but also how women are portrayed in horror, Lucky tells its story in a time that feels more relevant every day. However, it seems that men may only just be realising it.

May is faced with gaslighting and victim blaming and despite the unusual situation, it doesn’t feel all that outlandish as it clearly gets its message across.

Grant makes May a likeable character and not the hard-nosed, emotionless woman determined to get to the top as other writers and directors may portray women. Everything she has to fight for is something every woman could relate to even when the thought of her fighting off a serial killer every night could become a little comical.

Lucky is a film that everyone should watch, especially those who don’t really understand why women have to fight on a daily basis.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
