2016 has been an incredibly strong year for the horror genre, possibly the best in quite some time. Could that streak continue with Morgan? The horror mystery is directed by Luke Scott (son of Ridley Scott) and stars Kate Mara as a corporate troubleshooter who is sent to a remote, top-secret lab to investigate a terrifying accident, where she then discovers that the scientists have created something outside the realm of human form.
While I unfortunately came across a review or two of Morgan while scrolling through Twitter, I’m going to talk about it as if I never saw those. The trailers have been pretty intriguing for me so far. They have given off a very The Thing type vibe, which is a great sign. And what’s cool about it is that, in a twisted kind of way, it’s a modern day take on the classic Frankenstein story. Now the final product could be a mess or not as enticing as the trailers, but all the footage I’ve seen feature some thrilling and horror-like beats.
Do the following clips play by the same model? I’m not sure. Just as I do with most clips, I don’t watch them because of spoilers. But that shouldn’t stop you from checking them out and letting us know that you think. Are you excited for Morgan? Is it something that just ins’t up your alley? Luke Scott’s Morganopens September 2nd, 2016 and stars Kate Mara, Anya Taylor-Joy, Paul Giamatti, Rose Leslie, Boyd Holbrook, Michelle Yeoh, and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
