Roku Netflix Streaming Movie of the Day!
Alister Grierson’s 2nd and as of this writing last feature film SANCTUM, is a thrilling bit of adventure fiction, as it tells the take of a party of cave explorers in Papa New Guinea, attempting to explore the last great mystery, and how they face death and tragedy at every turn.
Based very loosely on events that writer and real life explorer Alister Grierson endured during one of his explorations (VERY, as in the only thing real is the location, the storm, and that people were trapped. But the characters and situations have been completely fictionalized to make a good thriller), the film very effectively strings together tension and conflict to create an immersive Odyssey of death in beautiful places. Grade: B.
