If you enjoyed the recent based-on-a-true-story limited series THE ACT and wished for more of the same, but completely fictional and with the horror turned up to Lifetime Movie-of-the-80’s level, this is a film for you. If you, like me, appreciate your thriller/horror films a bit more discerning and original, then steer clear of this mess. Did the marketing team at Hulu pull in an up & coming writer/director to capitalize on their success with THE ACT to shoestring together RUN? We may never know.
Wildy talented Sarah Paulson and new actress Kiera Allen (making her film debut!) are both very good, perhaps too good for this movie. I commend the filmmakers for hiring an actual wheelchair-using actress for the main role and hope to see Allen again in many future projects. Skip RUN and watch THE ACT instead if you missed it when it premiered in 2019.
Both are streaming on Hulu.
