review by
Mike Haberfelner

Kofi (Kadianne Whyte) is a young waitress struggling to make ends meet - even if that means leaving her daughtzer Laila (Kierra Pitts) with her estranged parents (David Haines, April Bogenschutz) while working crazy shifts. Then a weird virus that leads to hallucinations, violent behaviour, and ultimately a seven day coma and death, takes root at Laila's school, and sure enough Laila catches it, much to Kofi's horror. The gouvernment has put Laila under quarantine, but the doctor responsible for containing the virus, Mason (Bill Cobbs), seems out of his depth despite his best intentions. But Kofi isn't one to give up on her daughter, so she turns to the least likely source for help, Wells (Danny Trejo), the father of Laila's long estranged father, who tells her of a curse spelt after the burning of a witch (Sarah Vaughn Perry) decades ago - a curse that can't be fought with medical means ...

Eric Roberts plays the leader of the witch-burning mob, Bill Oberst jr a bishop brought in for exorcism.

 

Now Caroltyn might not exactly be a film that invents the wheel anew, but it's really good at what it does, and that's slowly but surely building up it's rather harrowing story, placing enough jump scares along the way to keep the audience at the edge of their seats, and only by the by giving away its full backstory to keep up the mystery. And it does so in a very suspenseful way, only fueled by centering the whole thing around a very relatable and likeable central character, played by Kadianne Whyte in a very engaging way. And a genre savvy directorial effort only helps to make this a very entertaining piece of horror cinema.
