Fall is a thriller.
When I was a kid I would climb the power company metal towers which were 100 to 200 feet high, going up was a challenge, but getting down was terrifying. That’s what Grace Caroline Curry and Virginia Gardner must face in a lonely desert as they climb a 2,000 foot abandoned communications tower which has begun to rust away.
Director Scott Mann keeps us on the edge of our seat, creating a pain in ones lower back like that rigidity and stiffness that only occurs when there is serious danger to characters in a film which we care about. The film is done well enough to force that reaction as the characters plot their escape from a location that appears to be hopeless.
This is not a film for a relaxing evening of entertainment, it demands attention through out, because of an effective script and over the top filming.
