SPREE (REVIEW)

Dir. Eugene Kotlyarenko

Reviewer. Martyn Wakefield

SPREE manages to pull off the found footage and reinvent it to the point that rather than creepy and unsettling becomes fun and chaotic, not terminology you'd use for a POV of a serial killer.


When Kurt Kunkle fails to gain a social media following, he sets about an end of days quest to be the ultimate influencer. #TheLesson is his mission and it quickly becomes apparent that this fame hungry "influencer" sees only one way to make the heights of his idols... To live stream his murder spree from the back of his taxi.


Controversially, there's so much sinister behind SPREE, that it shouldn't be as enjoyable as it is and somehow, Kerry's loner is somewhat attached to the screen like a long distant cousin who you know and have connection with but not close enough to call a friend.


With a runtime of 90 minutes, this is a taxi ride worth every penny with moments of sheer madness and a dark ego centric performance that can only be compared to that of Christian Bale's Patrick Bateman.
