You know how every once in a while you’ll see one of those ‘feel good’ stories that restores your faith in humanity? Poor Agnes is the exact opposite of that.

Although sprinkled with humor, Poor Agnes leaves it’s audience questioning what any one of us might do once we’ve reached our breaking point. I think we’d all like to believe that we’d do the right thing when given the chance, and yet this film left me wondering if this was true.

Generally when watching a horror/thriller it’s easy to remind yourself that it’s just a movie, because you find yourself saying ‘that wouldn’t happen’ or ‘why didn’t they do XYZ?’ but with Poor Agnes this isn’t the case. What makes the film so creepy and intense, isn’t the script, or the camera angles, or the characters (although all amazing) it’s the realism. You go through the process with them, and you start to understand why they are the way they are, and that’s what makes this film absolutely terrifying.
