Know what’s really scary? An unseen force. Especially if it’s malevolent, violent, and hiding.
Scrambled cleverly plays on that fear, thanks to some taut direction and camera work by Faisal Hashmi. In it; a young man accidentally injures himself and risks unleashing an evil entity that’s awoken by blood.
Aside from some stilted acting early on and a hint of self-importance in the film’s trailer, these 10 or so minutes feel much shorter than they are. Music is a tad overused, and the final jump scare is blurry and inconclusive, but it’s a decent, shoestring budgeted first offering; and you’ll never again look at a throwaway, late-night injury.
