TRIPLE FEATURE REVIEWED
The Mill Creek triple feature is back with three movies that I haven’t thought about since they were released. Wind Chill, Closure and Perfect Stranger are all about one thing. Men are going to kill you, women have to fight alone and this was the only way to get a female led movie made between 2006-2007. The Gillian Anderson picture “Closure” tried to change up the formula a bit. Naturally, it’s the most unseen in this trilogy of female powered movies.
What’s the takeaway? James Foley shouldn’t be hammered for directing the latest Fifty Shades movie, as he humbled himself earlier with “Perfect Stranger”. Emily Blunt has always been pretty attractive. Finally, it’s a crime that Gillian Anderson can’t successfully headline movies. She has a voice and natural command of a scene. But, that’s the way it goes.
