Cody Calahan (Antisocial) directs this film, which can be described as "body horror with a multiple personality twist," with the story built around the rare condition of Vanishing Twin Syndrome. After her accident, Helen finds that a lot of her actions are unaccounted for, causing some concern for her best friend and roommate Molly (Nina Kiri). It is soon discovered that Helen is literally turning into a new person, as her long dead twin sister wants her turn at life.
I have to admit that Let Her Out left a bad taste in my mouth at the very start when the violent rape of Helen's prostitute mother is used as a plot device to set the story in motion. I kept my mind open for the rest of the film, however Let Her Out ended up being a very schizophrenic mess of a body horror film. Many of the attempts at horror come across as laughable (stethoscope to head anyone?) and the gory climax arrives a bit too late for me to care. At the very least, I can say that Let Her Out is very stylishly shot, with many red and blue tones and impressive looking Toronto landscapes. If only the story matched the visuals.
