Come to Daddy

COME TO DADDY (⭐️⭐️⭐️)

Director: Ant Timpson. Cast: Elijah WoodStephen McHattieGarfield Wilson 

When it comes to unpredictable genre-bending movies “Come to Daddy” really deserves the palm d’or… Right from the first few frames where we are treated by a quote by Shakespeare followed by one by Beyoncé, we know we’re in for something pretty crazy. What starts of as a movie about a reunion between a son and his estrange father, turns quickly into something completely different and unexpected.

To say more would be a BIG spoiler, but you should only know that this is actually a gory horror, so if you don’t like this type of things, stay well away from it.If you do, you might actually “enjoy” it.

Elijah Wood has the quality of choosing pretty weird roles from time to time and this is certainly one of those. With his terrible haircut and the weird moustache (both matching the weirdness of the film), the eternally young actor’s performance here is a real tour de force: he’s virtually in every single shot and it carries it through great energy and conviction.In the end the emotional stakes are completely submersed by the gory madness and it’s hard to take any of it seriously.

It’s fun, of course, but all a bit flimsy.

You can rent it on iTunes for £1.99
