On Jan. 22, Hulu released its original movie “Fresh,” a brand new horror film that currently has an 81% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The film features Sebastian Stan, known for his role as James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes/The Winter Soldier in the Marvel franchise, and up-and-coming actress Daisy Edgar-Jones, who starred in “Normal People” as Marianne.
If you like gory but laid-back horror, this movie is for you.
It follows Noa (Edgar-Jones), a young woman who grows tired of internet dating following a series of bad experiences. When she meets a man named Steve (Stan) at the supermarket, the two flirt and decide to exchange numbers. After going on a few dates, Steve eventually asks Noa to go on a weekend vacation with him, and that’s when everything goes wrong.
This film has everything: Hot people, mystery, twist, gore, conspiracy and some hardcore girl boss moments. It features a very iconic dance scene that has already made its way to social media apps like TikTok.
If I were to compare this movie to a different film or show, what comes to mind is a mix of “American Horror Story: Murder House” and “The Silence of the Lambs.”
If you are not into gory stuff, this movie may not be a good viewing option, but the plot definitely outweighs the gore. Its level of interesting horror does not fall under the typical category.
