#8: Black Butterfly (2017)

Not another Misery in the woods film, Black Butterfly is a fantastic rainy day film that’s long on thrills and less on blood and gore.

A successful, though aging, Spanish writer (Antonio Banderas) is convinced to move to the US to ramp up his career. He finds himself living in the backwoods of a town with an abundance of mysterious disappearances. Searching for inspiration, Paul invites a hitchhiker, played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers, to stay awhile.

Based on the French film Papillon Noir (2008), Black Butterfly was filmed entirely in Italy. This thriller runs an hour and 33 minutes and is rated R for violent content. Black Butterfly is surprisingly good.
