“Last Night in Soho” is a 2021 mystery/horror starring Thomasin McKenzie (Old), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit), Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones), Matt Smith (Doctor Who), Terence Stamp (Superman), and Michael Ajao (Attack the Block).
A country girl moves to London to go to school to be a fashion designer. She rents a flat where a woman from the 60’s was killed. She starts to have visions of the woman, and when she goes to sleep at night, she essentially lives as this woman. She believes the killer is still at large as her own life starts to spiral out of control.
It was hard to get a good read of what this one was about from the trailers, and it didn’t stay long in theaters, so I watched it on Redbox. Both Mckenzie and Taylor-Joy play great roles as the line between reality blurs between them. It hooks you in right away and does a great job switching between present and past. About three fourths or so in, it takes a weird turn by merging the two times together. Which I get, but I think it would have been better without it. It does have a couple of twists, that sort of make up for this. Overall, I give it a 7/10.
