When it comes to certain genres, we have an idea what, directors will be involved. Steven Soderbergh is not a filmmaker we would associate with the horror genre, now we can. Unsane sees Soderbergh create a movie all on an iPhone, following the footsteps of Park Chan-Wook and Sean Barker. Soderbergh is a filmmaker who loves to experiment, the end result looks something straight out of a psychological horror thriller from the 1970s or even 1990s. Like a love letter to Brian DePalma, Sisters?
Claire Foy may be known to many as a young Queen Elizabeth from Netflix’s The Crown, in this, she’s ‘insane’. A role we may not be used to seeing her in.It could be an insight into The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo fans if she will be any good as Lisbeth Salander?
This is a movie about a young woman who is involuntarily committed to a mental institution where she is confronted by her greatest fear.But it’s the old chestnut, is it real or is it a product of her delusion?

A young woman leaves her hometown to escape a troubled past and begin a new job. But when she is involuntarily committed to a mental institution she is confronted by her greatest fear — but is it real or just her delusion? With seemingly no-one ready to believe her and the authorities unable or unwilling to help, she must confront her fears head on. With twisting perspectives and a shocking narrative, Unsane asks questions about our perception of reality, our survival instinct and the system that is supposed to take care of us.
Unsane stars Joshua Leonard (The Blair Witch Project), Jay Pharoah (Ride Along), Juno Temple (Atonement), Aimee Mullins (Stranger Things) and Amy Irving (Traffic).
The movie will be released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 23rd March 2018.
