Written by Edward A, Hippopotamus is a thriller movie packed with loads of surprises. The story mainly revolves around a girl named Ruby. The protagonist is being held captive in a room with only a mattress, a sink, and a toilet. Although It can be disturbing for some people to watch such scenes but quite interesting for thrill lovers.
The most interesting thing about the movie is that it focuses only on two characters- Tom and Ruby. It might have been quite challenging for the makers to be consistent with the surprise element.
In the first scene, Ruby is seen in a condition where she is unable to speak and her knees seem to have cuts. She meets an unknown voice, Tom. He helps Ruby to heal and gives her medication. She tries to trust him, as the story progresses. But there is more than this to Tom’s identity.
More of Ruby’s memory is brought up through the use of triggers, such as books or a specific meal. But the story takes a turn when Ruby finds some scribbled notes in a book that she borrowed from Tom, where she finds some warnings about not trusting Tom. It also said that her legs were not injured before captivity as Tom had told her.
