“The slow burn pace might not be for some folks and Iu0026#39;ll admit I donu0026#39;t think this movie needed to be two hours long, but that said, I quite enjoyed this thriller and I would go as far as to say itu0026#39;s the best Iu0026#39;ve seen in some time. Set against the backdrop of a Mid-Western town, the kind of place that seems perpetually cold and isolated, itu0026#39;s the perfect setting for what unfolds. Actress Lexi Johnson T(The Nice Guys, This is Us) and Chukwudi Iwuji (John Wick Pt.2, When They See Us) are the main focus and do a wonderful job of carrying this movie on their shoulders. The cast isnu0026#39;t a huge one but everyone else is fine in their roles. The story itself is very well written and even when you think you know whatu0026#39;s going on here, Morrisey manages to flip the script in a way that feels original and smart. Like most fans of this genre, I love a good mystery and I really thought I had it all figured out. Turns out I wasnu0026#39;t even close, anytime a movie can catch me off guard, Iu0026#39;m a happy camper.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe kills are very effective as well. Gruesome but not over the top and with a solid sound design that sells the brutality and them some. Another aspect of this story that helped it stand out from most similar thriller was the antagonist. Female killers are rare in these types of movies and female serial killers even more so. Actress Kate Tuckerman (The Matrix Reloaded) who plays the lethal Elizabeth feels like a true force to recon with here with her earliest scenes taking their inspiration from none other than Michael Myers of Halloween fame. My only disappointment is we didnu0026#39;t have enough of her on screen but when sheu0026#39;s there, you WILL believe this sixty something year old woman could whoop an ass and then some!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLike I mentioned before, the runtime here is a bit problematic and with some editing here and there to keep the tension tighter, The Girl Who Got Away wouldu0026#39;ve been pitch perfect. That said, if youu0026#39;re a fan of thrillers that donu0026#39;t pull punches when it comes to its kills and doesnu0026#39;t make it too easy for you to figure out its mysteries, you should definitely give this a look.”
