As I sat down to watch the 2021 horror movie "Winifred Meeks" from writer and director Jason Figgis, then I was expecting to see a horror movie, as it was labeled as a horror movie here on IMDb. But instead I was in for a movie of absolute boredom and something being really remote from being a horror movie.
Well, unless you consider a whole movie of virtually nothing happening as horror, then by all means "Winifred Meeks" is pure horror.
The storyline told in "Winifred Meeks", as written by Jason Figgis definitely sounded good on its descriptive synopsis, but wow, translated to the screen it was pure torment to sit through. This movie was so uneventful that you could watch the first 5 minutes, leave, and then come back for the last 5 minutes and you wouldn't have missed a single thing of the movie.
And I must admit paired with the synopsis, then the movie's cover and the fact that it had Lara Belmont in the lead role were good selling points to the movie, and it definitely had set up some expectations to the movie. And director Jason Figgis just delivered 1 hour and 28 minutes of nothing.
I do enjoy horror movies and have seen more than my share, but "Winifred Meeks" is definitely a top contender for being a pointless and boring horror movie. If you are a fan of the horror genre, then you must do yourself a favor and stay well clear of this 2021 train wreck of a movie.
This is a movie that could potentially be used in studies to cure insomnia. Talk about being boring. It was just uncanny.
My rating of Jason Figgis's "Winifred Meeks" lands on a generous two out of ten stars, based solely on the production value of the movie.
