10/28/22 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #28 – Run Sweetheart Run.

FINALLY I can put Run Sweetheart Run on this list! It hits Amazon Prime today, so it’s the perfect day to showcase it. But I thought this would never come out, because I saw this baby at Sundance in January of 2020! Almost three years it sat on the shelf. I hate when that happens, especially when it’s a badass flick like this one. Point blank, this movie rules. Here is the brief IMDB synopsis:

A woman tries to get home alive after her blind date turns violent.

Run Sweetheart Run has an energy to it that is infectious. It starts simple enough, with a woman going on a blind date. But boy oh boy does it go nutty from there. As per typical, the best way to experience this movie is to go in as blind as possibly. Because there are some twists and turns to this one that you simply do not see coming. In fact, don’t even watch the trailer because it gives away some pretty big moments, which always frustrates me. What’s great about this flick is that it’s one movie on the surface — a lean, mean, nasty chase movie. But it’s another movie beneath — the subtext about male dominance and gender roles are pretty hard to miss. In fact, I look forward to a lot of toxic male hatred of this movie, and I say bring it on. Because that will exactly prove this movie’s point. Regardless which part of this equation interests you most, there is something for everyone here. This is highly original flick that really deserves to be seen. Oh, and if you don’t like blood, don’t watch.

Where to Watch: Streaming on Amazon Prime

Food/Drink Pairing: Expensive sushi and some sake.
