Fall (2022) | REVIEW

For best friends Becky and Hunter, life is all about conquering fears and pushing limits. However, after they climb 2,000 feet to the top of a remote, abandoned radio tower, they find themselves stranded with no way down. Now, their expert climbing skills are put to the ultimate test as they desperately fight to survive the elements, a lack of supplies, and vertigo-inducing heights.


Fall (2022) is an anxiety inducing thriller which will have you biting your nails until the very end, with a talented cast who are able to carry the film and a unique story concept this movie is surely one to check out.


The film follows friends Becky and Hunter who decide to climb a 2,000 ft abandoned radio tower in the middle of the desert. Inevitably, this climb goes horribly wrong and the pair are left stranded alone with no hope of escape. The film is incredibly tense, the whole idea of falling is highly suspenseful and the writers really played on this general idea throughout, I have no doubt if you have a fear of heights this film will have you sweating within minutes.


The film was almost draining to watch as it was so hard to judge, I had no idea how the characters were going to find a way out and the final build up truly felt me thinking they wouldn’t. Shiloh’s character was unbelievably unrealistic, of course, the narrative is pretty unrealistic overall and I accept that not all movies have to be believable but Fall set up it’s story to be pretty overdramatic and extremely exaggerated from reality, this would never happen in real life and that is the only element which brought the whole film down for me. This concept of heights, falling and being stranded could easily be redirected to a more believable location (in saying that, this radio tower does exist) and add another thick layer of anxiety and thrill to the movie.


Overall, Fall (2022) is a high impact horror with a lot at stake and a truly original angle at fear and thrill. This movie is pure survival for the characters and the audience, if you can get through it, it’s a fun watch!
