‘Come to Daddy,’ directed by Ant Timpson

Movie, 2019

Schlocky horror-thriller, featuring a father getting back in touch with his son, then for reasons never fully fleshed out, the son taking himself to the other end of the world to meet his long estranged father. While the film has a lively start, and the questions build a decent level of tension, there’s a subsequent slide into a more predictable patter and an over-reliance on shock and gore. Still, the entertainment is there, and there’s no reason to utterly dislike the film, even if the plot and some of the set pieces do their best to alienate the viewer. The main character is the only to one to develop and is well-realised, although the others are nowhere near as interesting. Not a bad film; not amazing.
