Marionette tells the story of a therapist, who loses her grip on reality when a ten-year-old boy claims he can control her future.
A psychological thriller that revels in its cerebral mind games, Marionette gives a refreshing alternate take to the recent string of horror featuring creepy kids. It’s moody, Gothic in tone and look, and asks weighty questions with no easy answers. Until the tidy conclusion comes along, anyway, it runs a little overlong and rushes through important character beats, but Strien does succeed in creating a high concept thriller that doesn’t quite go where you’d expect.
