Uncanny Annie – USA, 2019 – review

‘She plays for keeps’

Uncanny Annie is a 2019 American supernatural horror feature film about a bizarre board game that can kill.

Directed by Paul Davis (The Body; Patient Seven segment ‘The Body’; Beware the Moon: Remembering An American Werewolf in London) from a screenplay written by Alan Bachelor and James Bachelor, the movie stars Adelaide Kane (The Devil’s Hand; Blood Punch; The Purge), Georgie Flores, Paige McGhee, Jacques Colimon, Dylan Arnold and Evan Bittencourt.

The Blumhouse production is part of the second year-long season of ‘Into the Dark‘ holiday-themed horrors on Hulu.

Plot:

On Halloween night, a group of college students become trapped in a mysterious board game that brings their darkest secrets and fears to life, where they must play to escape… and win to survive.

Reviews:

Uncanny Annie isn’t just a body count movie where we watch cardboard cut-out characters get picked off one-by-one. There is something more going on here. The story goes in directions that I did not predict at all, and the characters have some depth. There was a stronger dramatic story playing out among the action than I expected there to be…” Arrow in the Head

Uncanny Annie will premiere on October 4th as part of Hulu’s annual ‘Huluween’ season.
