In the same vein as movies about women with a specific set of skills surviving obscene circumstances in the past decade, such as The Shallows with Blake Lively, ‘Crawl’ with Kaya Scodelario, and ‘Infinite Storm’ with Naomi Watts, “FALL” directed by Scott Mann and starring Grace Caroline Currey doesn’t add anything new to this specific genre but it’s still a fun vertigo filled thrill ride that’s even more impressive considering the small budget the film had.
‘FALL’ follows Becky (Grace Caroline Currey), coping with the loss of her husband (Mason Gooding) after a disastrous free solo rock face climb with their best friend, Hunter (Virginia Gardner). After a year of this tragedy, Hunter tries to pull Becky away from her depressed state and convinces her to climb a 2,000-foot communication tower that’s up in the middle of the California desert TV Pole. She accepts and what follows is 70 minutes of adrenaline-rushing, vertigo-inducing nightmare fuel, especially if you can’t stand tall heights.
