By George Bate & Josh Bate

Strange Darling, the sophomore effort from writer/director JT Mollner, was one of the surprise hits of Fantastic Fest. The non-linear thriller follows a young woman (played by Willa Fitzgerald), who is on the run from an attacker (played by Kyle Gallner) in the Oregon Wilderness. On the surface, this isn’t a particularly novel or gripping concept, but masterful construction of a suspenseful and unpredictable story coupled with gorgeous cinematography make Strange Darling one of the surprises of the year.
