This feature film from 20th Century Studios debuts on Hulu on Feb. 25.

If I have learned anything from genre films like “The Hills Have Eyes” (and its sequels and remakes), “Wrong Turn” (and its follow-ups and reboot), “Wolf Creek” (and that franchise) and dozens of other titles, it’s that driving a route off the beaten path will put you in the company of horrible people and lead to nothing but trouble. Some of these films have made a strong and effective impression, but those involved really have to do something unique and shocking to stand out.

As the physical, emotional and functional center of the body, the heart has come to represent the soul of a person. In some of the stories of the saints, there are tales of the heart bearing literal words of God inscribed revealed up death of the saint.

In the case of St Ignatius, given the name “Theophorus,” meaning “God-Bearer,” his heart was untouched by the lions that devoured him, and the gilt words, “Jesus Christ,” could be seen upon his heart by the pagan onlookers.

Later, when the courtly love of medieval times spread through literature and art, the symbol of the heart took on a more earthly meaning of romantic love.

Running Time: 128 minutes

This film from Sony Pictures opens exclusively in cinemas on Feb. 18.

These days, it seems like Hollywood is almost exclusively in the business of creating franchises. At least, that is the feeling of this reviewer after seeing a Marvel or DC logo pop up at the beginning of so many features.
