One-line Reviews (89)

Putting aside attempts to figure out where the story is going, letting things just unfold before you, it's an entertaining and slightly twisted 94-minutes.

If people think this movie is scary and thrilling then they should never watch The Exorcist or Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992) to name just two that could cause them cardiac arrest.

From the moment this film starts you'll be on the edge of your seat and feeling slightly uneasy as it takes you on a dark and twisty ride.

A Fascinating, Steadily Unnerving and Disquieting Film .

Nothing happens, it's all about the twist at the end, and that's not enough to save it.

Thrilling By Any Definition .

Twisted and intriguing story.

Long Lost: Quirky, thrilling .

The film pulses forward with palpable anxiety, driven by Tucci's eccentric, unpredictable performance as an elitist recluse with a shape-shifting agenda.

The use of one setting telling a truly engaging story reminded me of the breakfast club's use of the school.

The film takes you on a psychological rollercoaster ride right from the opening scene of entering the security gate and taking the initial slow ride up the long and winding driveway.

I was expecting sultry tension, lingering looks, a threat of danger I was supposed to find exciting; and, of course, copious copulating.

Nicholas Tucci in particular is a standout, his captivating off-beat performance masterfully elevated his unpredictable character.

Waste of time watching it.

Worst movie ever seen.

A suspenseful, darkly comedic, and thrilling film that demands to be seen numerous times.

Worth watching if you're into thrillers and psychological family dramas

this film was erotic, weird, thrilling, creepy, suspenseful, sexual, provocative and I could go on.

The story is intriguing, it will keep you guessing what's going on, and it has some sexual tension building all the way through the movie.

The film could easily have been a melodrama about class, division and a controlling man losing his grip on power and reality, but, in the dangerously shaking hands of director, /Bloomquist, we are instead given a hugely engrossing, nerve-jangling piece of film theatre; with an agenda, wrapped in an enigma, and sprinkled liberally with Faustian fear.

The performances were riveting, the direction was smart and sharp, and the story was unpredictable.

Very weak and tedious .

A tight and entertaining 90 minutes.

This film transcends genres, Tucci's brilliance balances cunning, comedy and creepy, as the stunning Catherine Corcoran blurs the lines between ingenue and femme fatale.

Boring .

Ebb and flow and riveting.

Suspenseful .

The drama gets really intense!

Otherwise, don't waste your time.

A Suspenseful, Darkly Comedic, and Thrilling Film .

Suspenseful and sexy, Long Last delivers a top notch psychological thriller at it's finest.

Nothing happens in this film.

Other than that an outstanding job to all that worked on that film and I wanted to say I truly enjoyed it and can't wait to see more from these talented people.

my own dumb fault), but it was still an intense final 15-20 minutes.

47 minutes into it I am so bored.

It's uncomfortable to watch AND I highly recommend it!

Nicholas Tucci performs each insane personality flip with such devotion and keeps the viewer on the edge of their seat the entire time.

Long Lost is a great example of a slow burn thriller.

One fabulous, diligent writer / director = all the ingredients for a clever, engaging and disturbing thriller.

The film is incredibly suspenseful and keeps you guessing the whole time.

His perpetual moroseness, sour demeanor, and reluctance to let himself go became tiresome.

This film kept me on the edge of my seat and constantly thinking what will happen next.

I kept guessing where this was going, and the twist at the end was really unexpected.

Possibly one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

A Suspense Story with Unexpected Twists .

Empty .

Although the movie was supposed to have a grand design, beyond what we originally realize, by the time this is revealed to us the meandering tediousness, that we've had to endure up 'till then, just isn't worth the pay-off.

Intense thriller with unexpected turn at the end .

Long Lost is one of those films that is fast-paced and thoroughly entertaining from start to finish.

The acting wasn't bad at all, with some twisted characters that made it worth watching.

This exhilirating thriller was so beautifully paced and utterly fascinating, there wasn't a second where I wasn't entirely engaged and on the edge of my seat.

Slow Burn/Big Payoff .

Plenty of twists and turns-keep you on the edge of your seat in this movie...

It changes from the same boring stories we're used to.

A Thriller in every way--exciting and surprising in a real quality way...

The plot was original and the suspens gets really intense!

The pace is a bit slow and it becomes repetitive, even though it's run time isn't long.

Thoroughly enjoyed this witty, slow burn of a thriller...

It's suspenseful, intense, and will keep you off-balance trying to figure out what was going on.

) This is a boring story that has a convenient explanation.

Long Lost is a very intense thriller.

Bizarre and compelling .

A tedious journey .

A slow, slick, nerve-jangling ride through the tunnel of love to hell...

The use of long drawn out shots to increase suspense was truly masterful and the combination of cinematography and editing overall made the movie seamless and engaging.

The story seems pointless even at the end.

With its high tension and dread reminiscent of The Shining, and its plot recalling Ex Machina, this beautifully made mystery thriller is a compelling watch from first to last.

Writer & Director Erik Bloomquist fastens you in deftly, with your seatbelt just loose enough to create a flicker of fear; before sending you skittishly off on a slow, sick ride into a hellish tunnel of love.

There are plenty of tricks and turns up its sleeve to keep you glued to the screen and there have been many a blockbuster that tries to be mysterious and falls short, so any film that manages to keep you guessing, no matter the budget, is one that's really worth watching.

no storyline no

Bizzare & Slow w/o a payoff.

Each fanning the flames which bring this intriguing pot-boiler to its satisfying conclusion.

Scary, unpredictable, well done.

Watch alone if you dare, or watch with a few friends as the discussion will surely be rousing, with a rewatch creating heightened scrutiny.

This was a cool movie to watch as there were a lot of unexpected twists.

Make some popcorn, stay in on the couch, and enjoy the slow burn!

Funny, sexy, surprising, mysterious, suspenseful--this is a love triangle wrapped inside of a puzzle that's locked inside of a time bomb.

Did you love the way the thrilling concept played out?

Writer & director Erik Bloomquist has put together a compelling story with a perfect ensemble of characters that range from unassuming and virtually harmless, to seemingly downright diabolical, the end product of which being a smart, steadily unnerving and disquieting story with a twist ending you'll be talking about long after the end credits roll.

I never knew just what it was that filled me with such unease from almost the first frame of this film, but it was a good kind of unease, and Long Lost is a thoroughly entertaining and fascinating film.

Along with the believable and natural dialogue it all helps tell this intriguing story expertly.

Pyschological thriller elevated by dark comedy and a gripping plot .

while the ending underwhelms a bit, i found it highly entertaining overall.

All of the actors in the film are intriguing and distinct.

From the opening scene to the final credits, this creative and intense indie captivates the viewer.

Stunning Film.

Each of the actors bring something new and exciting to the table.

The suspense build up is riveting, leading to a brilliant revelation in the end.
