Film: 17-year-old Chloe (Kiera Allen) suffers from numerous illnesses and lives confined to a wheelchair in complete isolation in her home in the country. Her mother Diane (Sarah Paulson) takes sacrificial care of her - a little TOO sacrificial. Diane controls everything Chloe does, denying her a cell phone as well as access to the internet. But eventually Chloe starts asking questions. And since she can't get answers from her mother, the girl starts getting them on her own. But what she finds out suddenly puts her relationship with her mother in a whole new light. But the more secrets the girl uncovers, the more dangerous the situation becomes for her.

In "Run", Aneesh Chaganty, director of the surprise success "Searching", presents a gripping thriller that, while not quite as surprising as it would like to be. As a viewer, you suspect the secret Diane is hiding from her daughter after only a few minutes. But that doesn't change much about the high entertainment value of the movie, which is maintained from the first to almost the last minute. On the one hand, this is due to some really well-executed suspense moments, which are all quite predictable, but still work very well. You can literally feel Chloe being smothered by her mother's (supposed) care and the conviction that something is wrong with it.

The strong acting of the two leads is the second aspect responsible for the intensity of the story. Sarah Paulson plays frighteningly well, and in her best moments is reminiscent of Kathy Bates as Annie Wilkes in the Stephen King adaptation "Misery". But Kiera Allen, in her feature film debut, is also convincing all the way through. Her performance is also a physical challenge, which Allen handles magnificently.

Admittedly, the wheel is truly not reinvented here. Chaganty makes use of many set pieces all too familiar in this genre. But he manages to mix them in such a coherent way that you as a viewer are completely carried away by it, despite a certain recognition value. Who is looking for a really exciting thriller, the "Run" with its gripping production, its great leading actresses and its beautifully evil end can be warmly recommended: Absolutely worth seeing!

Picture + Sound: The image of the Blu-ray convinces with a high level of detail, which can also convince in the darker scenes. The colors are powerfully mixed and look very authentic. Especially in the outdoor scenes, a pleasant depth of field is also noticeable. The audio is available as a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix. Especially in the first half, the tonal action is primarily focused on the rather centrally mixed dialogue. Towards the end, however, there are a few well-executed surround moments that bring a little more movement to the sound mix. Good!

Extras: As a bonus the Blu-Ray has to offer some promo interviews with the leading actresses and the director (altogether about 38 min.). In addition, the trailer and some B-Roll footage (approx. 7:12 min.) are also in the manageable bonus offer.

Conclusion: "Run" is a suspenseful thriller that is not quite as surprising as it would like to be. However, the gripping production and the frighteningly good acting of Sarah Paulson can easily make up for this weakness. The film is exciting from the first to the last minute and offers extremely good entertainment for home cinema. Technically, the Blu-ray can fully convince. The bonus material is okay, but offers no more than the usual promo material. All in all, an absolutely successful thriller and a good home theater conversion: absolutely recommendable!
