“Fresh” has a fairly small cast ensemble, however, the movie stars definitely rose to an occasion and carried this movie quite well. It’s just a shame though, that they had little time to work with for instances, like properly entertaining and enjoying the script.
“Fresh” was adequate. It’s not a gory film from the director does not delve into a full-blown jab and the macabre. Nearly, every gruesome thing that had been left to an imaginative is for better or even for worse. The movie is fit for a single view only since the storyline simply does not have those ingredients that will support more than the solo serving, pardon this pun.
Initially, there’s no single minute of the movie that would really classify it to be a comedy genre. It is a disturbing suspense/horror and a dark movie. The acting was really better than most of the movies of this kind..
