Excerpts from the Article:
“One of the best thrillers depicting narcissists, psychopaths, and gaslighting, this show masterfully depicts psychopathic traits across multiple predatory characters with chilling accuracy and follows a kind of ongoing war among them. Think Fight Club, but for psychopaths. It has one of the most mind-boggling plot twist endings, exposing that covert wolves in sheep’s clothing can come in many forms."
“The main character of the movie is an abused wife who learns to defeat her narcissistic abuser through self-defense training in Krav Maga. The love bombing and gaslighting tactics her husband uses to “hook” her in the beginning, portraying himself as a caring knight in shining armor only to begin abusing her once she’s “trapped” and has a child with him are classic abuse tactics of the malignant narcissist.”
“We learn in the movie just how far a psychopathic person will go to get revenge and regain power and control, and moreover, we also see how chameleon-like they are, shifting into different roles and identities to meet their agendas…This is the quintessential movie you want to watch if you ever wanted an answer to the question, “What happens when a psychopath encounters a narcissist in the never-ending mind games of a toxic marriage?”
“Not for the faint of heart, this movie is what some wished the movie Promising Young Woman could’ve been – a hard-hitting, gory vigilante film that shows no mercy to either the predator in the film or its viewers…an enthralling movie that captures what occurs when the roles of victim and perpetrator get reversed and the victim takes on the role of the one in power. As Jeff tries out every pity ploy and rationalizing sob story in the book to gaslight Hayley about his true nature, viewers get a glimpse of what it looks like when an enlightened victim takes on a psychopath and is ruthless in how she dishes out what she perceives to be justice.” - Shahida Arabi, MA
