In “Cobweb,” directed by Samuel Bodin, young Peter is thrust into an unsettling world of mysterious bumps in the night and a haunting voice within his bedroom wall. As his parents grow impatient with his behavior, the enigmatic voice becomes a peculiar solace, concealing dark intentions. While Philip Lozano’s cinematography enhances the eerie atmosphere, the film falls short of fully realizing its horror potential. Jump scares lack intensity, and the plot twists feel predictable. The narrative introduces intriguing elements, like a missing trick-or-treater and bullies tormenting Peter, but these threads remain unresolved and underdeveloped. Despite commendable performances, particularly Woody Norman’s portrayal of Peter, “Cobweb” struggles to deliver a truly gripping and terrifying horror experience. Visit flixtor for more!
