Every once in awhile a movie comes along and changes everything we know about certain horror sub genres. The rape revenge films for years have been a staple in the horror community where the outcome usually involves a woman who enacts a wrath on her persecutors. In Levan Bakhia stark thriller LANDMINE GOES CLICK we witness a innovative look at the revenge theory. LANDMINE GOES CLICK will leave you breathless. From the moment the film starts you are hooked in a seemingly innocent tale about three friends enjoying each others company as they camp and backpack through the Georgian hills. The movie soon takes a dramatic turn as one particular event leads to two people beginning harassed by a wild man and his dog. To add more to the intrigue one of them is standing on live landmine. Filled with treachery and deceit LANDMINE GOES CLICK is a rewarding thriller that will have you on the brink.
LANDMINE GOES CLICK is one of those films you can’t stop watching. The surrounding location is beautiful and the performance by Nike Apriashvili is legendary. There is so much unease as you watch how all the events playout. LANDMINE is truly a smart and thought provoking feature that provides so much more. There is a sense of two acts in this film and to mention anything from either would do it unjust. Truly one of the better thrillers in the past decade with an ending that you won’t see coming. Rape revenge films have gained a well received and overdue make over and that comes in the form of LANDMINE GOES CLICK.
Today’s modern world still has issues with old school traditions of family and moral fiber. I think that is one of the reasons LANDMINE GOES CLICK works like no other. No longer are consequences being given out for those who have lied and done harm to others. In this film we get the ultimate punishment that leads to something fatal. There are so many lessons to be learned from Bakhia’s film that once would have to see it to understand its full worth. I suggest you do when it becomes available so you can see some of the most unforgettable scenes in the past few years. LANDMINE GOES CLICK is a scorcher from start to finish. It’s also a film that reminds me how rewarding it is to be a critic of horror films.
LANDMINE GOES CLICK is directed by Levan Bakhia and stars Sterling Knight, Spencer Locke, Dean Geyer and Nika Apriashvili.
