Horror is a genre we love but also bemoan. For every brilliant addition—for every Hereditary or Get Out—there are what seem like a million stinkers. But a standout horror film, capturing the attention of critics and festival-goers alike, is slated to debut on the streaming service Shudder on March 22. The film, You’ll Never Find Me, boasts a commendable 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes

You’ll Never Find Me Is A Celebrated New Addition To The Horror Genre

Directed by newcomers Indiana Bell and Josiah Allen, the celebrated, Australian production premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in June of last year, immediately wowing critics who dubbed the movie an exemplary piece of horror filmmaking. The directing duo, joined by lead actors Brendan Rock and Jordan Cowan, created an intimate, brainy, contemplative, and unbelievably intense addition to the genre.Audiences at Tribeca adored the film’s admirable blend of suspense and horror, alongside taut psychological drama. 

Two Strangers Shelter During A Storm

You’ll Never Find Me begins with a lone woman seeking refuge from a storm—securing shelter with a man, also solitary, living a secluded life in a caravan park. The storm outside intensifies, alongside the mounting tension and sense of danger within the caravan. The result is a film yanking filmgoers to the edge of their seats, utterly uncertain who–if anyone–is trustworthy. 

Brendan Rock plays the reclusive, anxious middle-aged man residing in the cramped trailer. Even before the mysterious young woman, played by Jordan Cowan, bashes on his door, he experiences phantom knocks on his door—only to find no one there. 

Chilling Mystery Driven By The Script

Kicking off the inciting incident of You’ll Never Find Me, the mystery woman raps at the entrance in the middle of the night. Patrick, who welcomes her in, otherwise exhibits fluctuating behaviors, alternating between warmth and aloofness. His new guest, for her part, switches between friendly affability—the “normal” one in the two-person screenplay, at least at first—and her own striking, disquieting behavior. Darren Lim’s unsettling score accentuates the film’s creepy mood, priming viewers for the unfolding, disturbing events. The work thrives on its claustrophobic setting rather than being weakened by it; indeed, You’ll Never Find Me’s dialogue-driven script, instead of dulling, retains its momentum throughout—all due to the inventive storytelling and character dynamics. 

What The Critics Say

The screenplay, penned by Bell and Allen, earned vocal accolades, especially from RogerEbert.com. Experts loved the film’s aesthetic and thematic links to the world of Edgar Allen Poe (whose universe also receives heavy homage in Netflix’s The Fall of the House of Usher). Like a story authored by America’s foremost horror pioneer, the film begins with a foreboding knock on the door on a stormy night, then unravels suspensefully, thrillingly, and horrifically into something truly nightmarish. Critics particularly noted the film’s exceptional use of atmosphere–a standout feature. The set design, staging, and cinematography by You’ll Never Find Me’s jack-of-all-trades cinematographer, Maxx Corkindale, achieves a relentless and multidimensional sense of foreboding. 

Releasing On Shudder This March

Like a relentless motif, the storm characterized by pelting rain, rolling thunder, and its engendered claustrophobia contrasts sharply and starkly with the tense, quiet interactions the film’s principal characters share. Their gripping chemistry and the movie’s spectacular atmospherics achieve a gripping cinematic experience.Clearly, You’ll Never Find Me deservedly earned its stellar Rotten Tomatoes score.
