The future of superheroes??? - The New Mutants (2020) - Review

"The New Mutants," an original horror thriller set in an isolated hospital where a group of young mutants is being held for psychiatric monitoring. When strange occurrences begin to take place, both their new mutant abilities and their friendships will be tested as they battle to try and make it out alive.

This was a little different than I was expecting. It uses the backdrop of the mutants in the Marvel universe but this could have been its own stand alone thriller movie. You do not need to have seen any other Marvel movies to watch this one. The characters do not have enough backstory for you to care about them and the tension they have with each other seems forced in so many of the scenes. While I was hoping for more, this one carried enough of my interest for the duration of the movie, but in no way am I excited to the point of encouraging everyone to add it to their lists of must see Marvel movies. When you run out of content to watch, this one will carry you over till more is available.

Ranking 6/10
