Would horror lovers enjoy this film?
Searching was really entertaining to watch, with a brilliant twist. The whole of the movie is filmed through the perspective of a camera lens on a phone, laptop or the news on a TV. I feel that although after a while it can be frustrating just seeing one type of shot, this was needed for the audience to experience the same type of situation that the Father is going through. It also means that we find out the same information at the same time that the Dad does, making us feel a connection and even more empathy for the Dad. Overall, this was a really interesting watch, and if you enjoy mystery / who done it type horror films then Searching is going to be something that you will like. Searching is currently on Netflix right now, so if you are a member of this video on demand service then you can watch it there.
