Fantasia 2020: ‘The Block Island Sound’ is suitably creepy | Awesome Friday!

The Block Island Sound

The Block Island Sound is a gorgeously shot horror film. Almost every exterior shot is beautiful and takes full advantage of the location. The score and sound design are also top-notch, with much of the tension being ratcheted up by the auditory experience. 

It is also well cast and –and I say this as someone who grew up on a small island– really captures that small island town feel of everyone knowing everyone. 

Chris Sheffield is doing good work here as Harry, the black sheep estranged from his family and most of the island. But, once things start going south, he carries the film across the finish line.
