REVIEW: Cobweb (2023) - Starring Lizzy Caplan, Woody Norman, Cleopatra Coleman and Antony Starr

"Cobweb," directed by Samuel Bodin in his directorial debut and written by Chris Thomas Devlin, is a chilling and creepy 2023 American horror film that delves into the eerie and unsettling realms of a young boy's tormented existence. With a standout cast and an intriguing plot, the film manages to weave together psychological horror and supernatural elements in a way that should keep you on the edge of your seat.

Lizzy Caplan delivers a strong performance as Carol, a mother grappling with her son's disturbing experiences. Antony Starr's portrayal of Mark, the emotionally distant and potentially abusive father, adds depth to the family dynamics. Cleopatra Coleman as Miss Devine and Woody Norman as the tormented young boy Peter round out the cast with exceptional performances that anchor the story in a sense of unease.

The plot revolves around Peter, a socially isolated 12-year-old who suffers from bullying at school and parental neglect at home. Peter's life takes a haunting turn when he becomes entangled with an enigmatic presence named Sarah, who claims to be trapped within the walls of his home. The film masterfully builds tension as the lines blur between Peter's imagination and a sinister reality.
