Written and directed by Cooper Karl, Sightless is a psychological-thriller based on the short film of the same name. It follows a former violinist Ellen Ashland, who loses her sight after an attack and decides to draw out from the world to recover. Soon, she grows suspicious of the people around her, as she believes her mysterious assailant has returned to haunt her by hiding in plain sight.

Madelaine Petsch has been remarkable with her acting in Sightless! Despite being in a monotonous setting for 90 percent of the movie, she masterfully displayed her state of terror— of not being able to see and being overwhelmed with other senses such as hearing—with the impressive use of acting skills and facial expressions, making viewers doubt their own senses for a while.

However, there’s nothing in the movie that you haven’t seen before. In fact, Sightless is a cross between Sandra Bullock’s Bird box and Elisabeth Moss’s The Invisible Man.

The highlight of this movie is obviously Petsch’s character. She mostly relies on her caretaker Clayton (Alexander Koch) who is hired by her brother who lives abroad. He teaches her to adapt in a sightless world and urges her to increase her other sensory abilities, especially hearing.
