Summer of 84 Review

Review by Carly

This movie is for all those 80s nostalgia babies out there! A bit like Disturbia but from a 15-year-old conspiracy theory enthusiast viewpoint. Davey believes his neighbor may be a mass murder, the only thing is not only is his neighbor an ideal citizen he is also a police officer. With help from his friends and old babysitter he plans to prove that this time he isn’t crazy and that there are bodies buried in the backyard.

This movie gets the time of the 80s and the feeling of being 15 perfectly! The main characters struggle not only with solving the case but also with their own personal struggles. Plus, the villain has the Ted Bundy style of creepy. He’s just a normal guy, or is he?

Summer of 84 is available on Hoopla.
