There are an abundance of sci-fi dramas and supernatural mysteries to go around, but rarely are they as ambitious and electrifying as Don’t Let Go. The Blumhouse Productions film is an eclectic mashup of genres that takes the audience on a twisted, time-travel mystery involving corruption and family drama.
Written and directed by Jacob Estes, Don’t Let Go follows Jack Radcliffe (David Oyelowo), a Los Angeles detective who is married to his work, but always makes the time to hang out with his niece Ashley (Storm Reid).
Things take a tragic turn after Ashley and the rest of her family are murdered, leaving Jack reeling. He’s shocked and confused when he receives a phone call from his not-so-dead niece two weeks later, and Jack quickly realizes that she’s somehow calling him from right before her death. With so little time left on the clock, Jack enlists Ashley’s help to find her killer and save her life before it’s too late.
