Movie Review

Even if the success is limited: teenager Asha Chaudhry ( Sara Wolfkind ) persistently tries to make a name for herself with her YouTube channel about relaxation and ASMR. Her parents Leah ( Shannyn Sossamon ) and Amir ( Usman Ally ), on the other hand, are quite critical of the internet and other communicative achievements, which is why they regularly support Asha and her younger brother Kamran ( Callan Farris) to spend time together without electronic devices. When they learn of a horrific phenomenon involving children hurting themselves or others as part of an internet challenge, they make every effort to prevent their children from coming into contact with it. And so they have to hand over all cell phones, laptops, and other things. But too late, the Grimcutty

has long since picked up the trail of Asha…

They are now an integral part of horror films: stories in which mostly young characters are pursued by some internet or social media monster. With Countdown, it was an app that announced the death and didn’t want to be messed with the plan. The film told about a boy who longs for a friend and wakes up a monster. Featuring Grimcutty, released exclusively on Disney+ here comes another flick that combines horror and technology. This time it’s an internet meme that comes to life and preys on children and teenagers. Or maybe, nobody here really knows at first. Maybe it’s just a kind of test of courage, as the parents say.

That there can be a bigger gulf between parents and children is nothing new. Rarely, however, is this thematized as strongly as in Grimcutty. The fact that we are dealing with a monster that only seeks out children and young people as victims, but that adults cannot see this monster, is mean. Again and again, this leads to ambiguous situations. As a father or mother, what are you supposed to think when your child is brandishing a knife and is also injured in some cases? Director and screenwriter John Ross ( Don’t watch!) is already quite well thought out.
