Kristy on Netflix is a Cat and Mouse Thrill Ride!! I recently came across this film on Netflix. I don’t remember this being released theatrically though. The film’s plot was pretty simple. From the beginning of the film, we learn that some type of cult all over the United States is committing a series of ritualistic murders and uploading them to the internet. The name of the film Kristy is explained in the beginning. She is some type of prophet that they have to kill.
The main character named Justine is played by Haley Bennett. Justine is a college student who stays behind on campus during Thanksgiving break. She is left on campus only with a few other staff members.
She has a run-in with four punks led by Violet who is played by Ashley Greene. They follow her back to campus and believe she is the Kristy woman that they have to kill. From there on, they chase and terrorize her throughout the film. They would kill off anyone who tried to help her. It isn’t until towards the end that she decides she won’t be a victim and fights back against the cult.
This movie was taut and intense throughout. Even with a small cast, this movie focuses more on the dread that the main character has to face while being alone and fighting for her life.
Justine uses pool chemicals to create a flammable powder. She then dresses herself in the dead man’s mask and jacket, and approaches the car where Violet is. Justine informs Violet that the others are dead, and when Violet comes toward her, Justine douses her with the flammable powder, burning Violet alive. Justine then photographs Violet’s corpse with the cellphone and uploads it to the website. A montage at the end reveals that a series of similar cult murders have occurred in other states and cities but with Justine’s testimony and access to the phone, many of the cult’s members have been arrested
Definitely recommend this intense cat and mouse thrill ride of a movie.
