Polaroid [2019] ★

This stinker of a horror movie is one of the worst things you’ll see this year. Following in the footsteps of two of the worst horror films of the decade (that would be “Flatliners” and “Slender Man”, just in case), “Polaroid” focuses on a high school loner who finds a polaroid camera at an antique shop. Here’s the twist: if you get your picture taken with that camera, you die. It’s an intriguing premise, I won’t lie, but it doesn’t take long for the movie to drown in a sea of horror clichés without any pay-off. But the biggest sin that this movie commits is that it’s not even remotely scary. I don’t know about you but I want my horror films to make me feel something, anything. Alas, “Polaroid” has nothing going for it. It’s dull, repetitive, and a total waste of time.
