After her deliciously creepy performance in the Netflix series “Ratched”, Sara Paulson delivers the goods yet again in the new thriller “Run”, from “Searching” writers Aneesh Chaganty and Sev Ohanian. The duo have done it again by delivering a suspenseful 90 minute rollercoaster that doesn’t pull its punches. The plot focuses on Chloe, a home schooled teenager who is confined to a wheelchair. We learn right from the start that she was born with multiple illnesses, and her mother (Paulson) takes care of her. I cannot go on without entering spoiler territory. I’ll just say that Chloe is about to discover a dark secret that will set the tone for the rest of the movie. It’s one hell of a ride, and director Aneesh Chaganty knows exactly how to manipulate his audience using familiar techniques. His debut feature “Searching” won me over instantly. “Run” may not be as clever, but it’s certainly well-directed and suspenseful from start to finish. Best of all, you can stream it right away on Netflix. It’s worth your time and patience.
