Ghosty Ghosty Story!
Director Eric Red came into direction after a span of about 12yrs. His last film as a director was the film names as ‘Bad Moon’ which was released in 1996. After about 12yrs also he came up with a good story, good direction, but sought of average narration.
100 feet is a story about one woman ‘Marnie Watson’ who after spending some years in the prison is now actually being house arrested for about six months under some condition. Marnie was sentenced for killing her abusive Cop husband ‘Mike’ in a self defense. She had to wear an electronic brace around her ankle that allows her to move in a 100-foot radius in the house during her probation. Mike's former partner Shanks takes Marnie under his custody, stalking her from his car, expecting her to violate the limits of the electronic device and send her back to prison. While staying alone in the house and adjusting herself with life, one fine day Marnie discovers that she is trapped in the house with the ghost of Mike that has not moved on and is still in the house seeking revenge against her. He didn’t kill her but slowly-slowly was violently beating, troubling, and thrashing her. Marnie did everything to get rid away from her husband, but didn’t succeed.
What’s worth watching in this film is the only second half. The first half and especially the first 20mins, is so slow moving, that at one point of time you would feel to run away from the movie. I would say if the first half is at ground floor, then the second half moves on directly at the top floor. One of my best scene in the movie which comes just before the climax is the one where ‘Mike’ kills the young boy who became the lover of his wife, had sex with his wife in front of him, and later got killed him in the morning in a very deadly and a very horrifying way. Only the last and the climax part of the film felt like very typically mediocre Hindi film ending.
Rest the movie was good, picked up the story after the mid, great performances by all of them, excellent video effects and a good horrifying background music.
Rating: 3.25 / 5
