“Flora” is a shockingly amazing film for a first-time director. It plays like The Happening by way of Annihilation, yet it works on a shoestring budget. Placing a bunch of young professionals in science gear and make them define the otherworldly is fun. I miss seeing Horror Sci-Fi fantasy that is fun, yet terrifying. The only downside is that it moves in and out at a pace that would make Malick scream for an editor. For a movie that is only an hour and forty minutes, that might be taxing to some.
I suggest sticking with it and treating yourself to a little seen gem. Mill Creek can release movies like this all the time. I’m loving the giant TV on Blu sets, but releases like this are important. Kudos to discovering Flora.
