Damici gives his memorable protagonist enough life to hold it together more often than it would have otherwise. He's great here. The movie around him, not so much.
A sprightly horror movie about finding new purpose for old bones.
Late Phases fails to deliver either shocks or real drama.
The narrative ends up working in a smaller scope than one might expect given the premise of a beast plaguing a community, but the journey getting to the finish is exhilarating all the same.
Less ambitious but more satisfyingly resolved than Bogliano's last effort, Here Comes the Devil, Late Phases is a reminder of how much monster movies rely on what happens when the monster's not on screen.
