Our roads are flooded so it’s a Netflix day. Opening it up with this unnecessarily confusing horror that has a small but impressive cast. I love Paul Sorvino, and Doug Jones will make any movie appealing. The movie’s plot isn’t complicated but the way it is presented is quite a mess. I actually had to look up the synopsis on IMDb to really understand what was happening. Beneath the Leaves (2019) Four small-town boys are kidnapped by James Whitley, a warm-eyed psychopath.

His grotesque pursuit to reunite orphaned children with their deceased birth parents is stopped however when the boys escape and he is arrested. Now, fifteen years later Whitley flees during a prison fire and returns to see his mission through. It’s then that the survivors of the past are faced with his return. Woven with other characters of traumatic pasts the film presents a theory on vicious cycles. A note on violence begets violence even when years have passed.

How trauma stays with you and effects your every day Life even when you believe you are past it. The issue is just the presentation. We get scenes without solid context and characters who may have been a certain character in the past or just a new entity but it’s never firmly established. It all feels very murky and I can’t tell if it’s just bad writing or just a bad attempt to come across as complex. They touch in philosophical themes but never dive into them.
I hadn’t looked to see if this was the director’s first movie or not but it feels like someone’s first movie attempt. Either way, it absolutely needed a once over in the script writing. The acting is fine, the cinematography is clean but nothing special, the fear isn’t really there as nothing horrific is really shown or honestly even happens that much. Our main players Mira, Paul, and Doug all play their roles very well. They did the best with what they had. It wasn’t horrible, it was easy to finish and I was interested enough to try and understand it. But I probably won’t ever watch it again.
Let me begin by saying that both Paul and Mira Sorvino are on my list of favorite actors. They are genuine pros, yet even their efforts cannot raise this stinker above mediocrity. There is really nothing new here, and what they do present is cliched so badly as to be embarrassing, i.e., the hip, sloppily dressed detective, the female detective maligned by sexist co-workers, the escaped prisoner looking for revenge, etc. Every turn of the plot is so choreographed that any suspense has been thrown to the wind. I’ve heard it said that winning an Academy Award can actually cause harm to a performer’s career. This film may be direct evidence of that, as it’s so very sad to see Mira Sorvino attached to such an anemic film effort as this.
