***May contain some spoilers***
Exposure (2018) follows the story of couple, Myra (Carmen Anello) and James (Owen Lawless), who are trying to rekindle their relationship. When they travel to a cabin in the woods far away from the city, they start to experience horrifying events. One day, when James is fishing, he gets bitten by something and he strangely transforms into something monstrous. But while Myra has all the chance to escape, she decided to stay to be with the man she loves. Now it is up to the couple to determine how to handle this situation.
Exposure (2018) does not have a lot of gore. It is very atmospheric and gloomy. The monsters wear special effects which are mediocre at best. There a few intense scenes as one of the characters try to escape the monster. There is not that much gore that would make someone cringe at any point during the movie.
The Grave Review
Exposure (2018) focuses in part on a relationship that is falling apart and affairs are taking place creating tension between the couple. When they try to rekindle their relationship in a cabin far from city life, they come across horrifying events. For a film created in 2018, this concept has been done so many times. The film offers so new perspectives or twists so you know what to expect.
True, Exposure (2018) is considered a bit slow burn giving the audience the ability to familiarize themselves with the characters in the story. However, the performances are mediocre and the directorial job is very bland. Despite these downfalls, the setting and backgrounds provide great camerawork and make excellent use of the locations.
Overall, the film’s aesthetics and special effects are passable. Although the characters lack depth, the film is still watchable. It has good horror elements but is not a memorable film.
For the foregoing reasons, Grave Reviews give Exposure (2018) one and half graves out of five graves.
