Morbidly Beautiful

Day 24 of our Women in Horror Month #wihm2020challenge is SO BAD SHE’S GOOD. Our pick comes from our Managing Editor Jack Wilhelmi.

“Ksenia Solo in 2016's Pet, from director Carles Torrens, is an absolute force. What begins as a classic case of male privilege coupled with entitlement culture as Seth (Dominic Monaghan) meets up with an old crush, Holly (Solo) and chooses to kidnap her quickly turns sour. While Holly appears to be Seth's victim as he locks her in a cage in an isolated wing where he works for Animal Control, in reality, she is anything but. Holly quickly turns the tables on Seth and manipulates him in a vicious game of cat-and-mouse that is largely played out while she is in a 'vulnerable' position.

Holly's staggering manipulation of Seth is a slow-burn, psychological train wreck of twists and turns that will leave audiences gasping at the screen, nails bitten down to nubs once Holly's game begins.

While there are certainly numerous female villains and anti-heroines of note in horror cinema, Pet's impression will undoubtedly linger. An absolutely fearless performance from Solo, who plays off the darkness of her character with a grotesquely beautiful charm, is enthralling and will impress a permanent image on viewers' minds. You might even fall in love with her - which, as Seth learns - is quite the dance with danger."
