Body At Brighton Rock (2019)

Roxanne Benjamin directs Karina Fontes, Casey Adams and Emily Althaus in this thriller where an inexperienced Park Ranger gets lost in the woods and finds a corpse.

A bit of a shaggy dog story. A lot is threatened to happen or implied… but with minimal pay-off. The direction is promising… you never get bored or check out even though we spend the feature-length essentially waiting for something… anything… to occur. That is a skill. The cast are pleasing. Karina Fontes manages to make a whiny and incompetent protagonist, who has to hold centre stage by herself for nearly a whole film, at least a little more attractive than how she is written. An admirable debut.
