What is it with the horror genre and tyrannical matriarchs? Carrie’s fundamentalist mother would rather lock her in a cupboard than let her attend Senior Prom, while Mrs Bates is extremely vocal about her son Norman’s love life. Echoing this trend then is Diane Sherman. She’s devoted to her disabled daughter Chloe (Allen), having tended to all of her needs since birth. But her professed benevolence – “I’m your mom. It’s my job to take care of you” – is thrown into doubt when Chloe finds evidence suggesting that she might be a hostage in her own home.

Director Aneesh Chaganty gave the thriller genre an innovative twist with acclaimed film Searching, and his sophomore film Run looks to be equally exciting and unpredictable. Kaylie Allen stars as resourceful 17-year old Chloe – and is the first real wheelchair-user in 70 years to lead in a major thriller – while American Horror Story’s Sarah Paulson is Diane, a doting mother whose motivations might be more sinister than they initially appear.

Recalling classic thrillers like Misery and Rear Window, Run is a non-stop thrill ride with two exceptional central performances. As detailed below, you can watch Run online now, and stream this electrifying Hulu Original film from anywhere.
