Margaux has a great premise with lacking execution in this teen horror movie.

What Margaux wants, Margaux gets. As seniors celebrate their final college days at a smart house, its highly advanced AI system, Margaux, begins to take on a deadly presence of its own. A carefree weekend of partying soon turns into a dystopian nightmare as they realize Margaux plans to eliminate them one way or another. Time starts to run out as the group desperately tries to survive and outsmart the smart home.

Steven C. Miller is back once again only this time it’s another horror movie rather than an action thriller. But unfortunately this is a pretty dull one with not a whole lot to it. There’s some decent kills here that lead to gore, the location itself is pretty nice and Madison Pettis is by far the standout from the cast. Outside of that however it plays out exactly how you think it’s going to, the idea of a an AI system in a smart house attacking people is a great idea that’s not executed all that well here, the dialogue is on the weaker side, the budget definitely holds the movie back from doing anything noteworthy. A lot of the movie is common teen horror movie tropes (despite being rated R) Margaux isn’t something I would call horrible, it does have it’s positives and it is entertaining towards the end. There’s just a lot of missed potential here.

Margaux is available on all VOD Platforms.
