The Blazing World: Movie review

Genre: Horror, fantasy

Rated: R

Year of Release: 2021

Director: Carlson Young

Date Watch: 6/13/2022

Summary: Decades after the accidental drowning of her twin sister, a self-destructive young woman returns to her family home, finding herself drawn to an alternate dimension where her sister may still be alive.

Review: This happens when you go on a midnight YouTube bench. You come across a tailor for a weird movie and watch that movie, then write a review for that weird movie.

The Blazing World is like Alice in Wonderland. Some characters are like the ones in Alice in Wonderland. I know there is an adaptation that takes the classic book and jammed it into the horror genre (using the wrong type of horror). This movie is a good example of how to take something and make a spiritual successor to it. Also, there is a dark fairytale element that remind to me of Pan’s Labyrinth.

The typical story of someone goes into a fantasy world and completes three things to get out. Like other stories in this genre, the characters in the fantasy world resemble characters in the real world. There is nothing new. I will say while these types of movies are offended, aim at kids. The Blazing World is more for adults.

The visuals are stunning. The editing is good. There, these cuts add to the surrealism of the film. The fantasy and horror are balanced well. All these features make this movie good. If you want something like a dark off beat fairytale, then this is much watch.

According to IMDb the director Carlson Young plays the main character in the movie. Now how does that work?
