The Paramedic (2020)


Angel works in an ambulance service. After a tragic accident, his personal life begins to deteriorate as he becomes more and more suspicious of his partner Vane.

The Paramedic is the start of Netflix’s horror movie lineup for Halloween a lot of platforms are doing it (Shudder and Amazon Prime) this was a very weak start. It’s clear that Netflix didn’t have any faith in this movie because the advertising is non existent. Which I can easily see why because there is seriously nothing interesting here, the story has been done to death numerous times it’s basically Misery but the plot is changed to a Ex lover wanting revenge, some Misery type movies have worked in the past but this isn’t one of them. The acting isn’t really great a lot of it just feels way too wooden, parts of the movie feel like they were completely written and directed by different people. It’s also very predictable as well, it follows pretty much the same cliches as a lot of these movies do. The only few things I can say that I liked were a few shots and the suspense was there but it wasn’t used correctly. Overall The Paramedic is one of those disposable horror movies that might be okay if you have nothing else to watch but otherwise ignore it.
