I always thought the concept of Groundhog Day was fitting for a horror film. The idea of reliving the same moments over and over again is just terrifying. In the new psychological thriller, Inoperable, the story dives deep into this madness of a one moment in time repeating itself like a skipping CD.
Inoperable was directed by Christopher Lawrence Chapman and co-written by himself and Jeff Miller. The film stars Danielle Harris, Katie Keene, Chris Hahn, Jeff Denton, and more.
A young woman wakes up in a seemingly evacuated hospital with a hurricane approaching that has awakened malevolent forces inside. She realizes she must escape the hospital before the hurricane passes, or she will be trapped there forever.
Although it took me a bit to get into this film, I appreciate that Inoperable is different than other horror movies out there. The story is a bit confusing and you really have to stay focused on what is going on, otherwise you’ll be completely lost. I always appreciate films that shoot in one location as well. Danielle Harris said it was challenging and I can totally see why.
Speaking of Danielle Harris, the actress delivers a wonderful performance, as always. Although she has the same spunk we’ve come to know and love her for, she got to show a different side to her acting. I could tell she enjoyed playing her character. Katie Keene was impressive as well and I definitely hope to see more of her.
What I loved most about the film is the end. It completely threw me off and was a delightfully wicked twist. Danielle steals the scene and I think her fans will love it.
Inoperable is definitely a bit slow paced and it takes awhile to get into the groove of the film. It’s different from anything else that Danielle Harris has done, but she still steals the show. Check it out when you can and let us know what you think!
