Having announced the film’s very existence with a trailer last month, Netflix has put out a couple of great clips for their latest in a recent crop of original genre productions, vigilante flick I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore. And if you’re hoping for some gritty, Death Wish-type revenge, you’re gonna be disappointed.
With a stonking cast led by Melanie Lynskey (Heavenly Creatures, Detroit Rock City, XX), Jane Levy (Evil Dead, Don’t Breathe) and Elijah Wood, the film follows Ruth (Lynskey), a nursing assistant suffering from depression. After becoming the victim of a break-in she finds a new purpose in life, recruiting her obnoxious, martial arts-obsessed neighbour Tony (Wood) to help her track down those responsible. It soon becomes apparent that the degenerate criminals are far more dangerous than just common thieves however, and the would-be vigilantes find themselves way out of their depth.
IDFAHITWA (jeez) was written and directed by Macon Blair, making his directorial debut. Better known for his work in front of the camera, Blair appeared in Jeremy Saulnier’s recent gems Blue Ruin and Green Room.
IDFAHITWA lands on Netflix today (Feb 24th), ahead of its appearance at SXSW in March.
