Wer (2014) Review

This was a recommendation from the talented E.M. Lacey. She and I are both fans of werewolves. Wer released in 2014 and is a reimagining of the classic monster. The writer and director, William Brent Bell (The Boy, Stay Alive, Devil Inside) took a more grounded approach. I found it to be very effective and unconventional for this particular genre. The “found footage” style is … Continue reading Wer (2014) Review

Last Night in Soho (2021) Review

I became fixated on the projects of Anya Taylor-Joy after seeing her in The Witch. She had a look reminiscent of women in the golden age of Hollywood (1950-1967). Her roles tend to vary from genre to genre and she never fails to deliver, except for in New Mutants, that movie sucked. This time around she teamed up with relative newcomer, Thomasin McKenzie, in a … Continue reading Last Night in Soho (2021) Review

Don’t Breathe 2 (2021) Review

Someone with a nose full of cocaine when they green lit this movie. To add insult to injury, the sequel only took six years. It pissed me off with its poor quality and convoluted plot. The blind man, Norman Nordstrom (Stephen Lang), returned to do fatalities on home invaders. Its basically the same formula yet they managed to screw up every single aspect of the … Continue reading Don’t Breathe 2 (2021) Review

Lamb (2021) Review

This film made me feel uncomfortable for an hour and forty-six minutes. I’m still not sure what I watched, to be honest. The story is about a couple in Iceland that found a baby mutant and raised it as their own. I must warn you that it is an extremely slow-paced form of storytelling. Loads of wide shots that highlight the beautiful mountain terrain, high … Continue reading Lamb (2021) Review

A Haunted House (2013) Review

I haven’t seen slapstick like this since Scary Movie. Marlon Wayans is a writer and producer as well as the star. He played the role of Malcolm, who moved into a new home with his wife. A couple of days later, supernatural things started happening. It’s parody of movies like Paranormal Activity and The Exorcist. I hollered every five minutes at the bizarre humor in … Continue reading A Haunted House (2013) Review

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) Review

When you talk about horror icons, you can’t exclude the infamous Leather face. A lot of people may not know him by name but instantly recognize his appearance. There are a lot of shitty remakes, sequels, and reboots in the franchise. Through the grace of God, I avoided most of them. One of my favorite iterations of the character is from 2006, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: … Continue reading The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) Review

Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight 2 (2021) Review

The story picked up exactly where the last one left off. The director, Bartosz M. Kowalski, retconned the final scene to make this (the sequel) possible. Immediately turned me off. How the hell he thought it was a good idea to ruin the protagonists from the previous film astonished me. In this installment, the mutant cannibalistic twins literally did nothing but sit on their asses. … Continue reading Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight 2 (2021) Review

There’s Someone Inside Your House (2021) Review

The trailer for this film reminded me of slashers like Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. What separates it from the two is time. The story is set in modern day, which is extremely relevant. There’s Someone Inside Your House is not only a long ass title that should get someone fired in marketing. It is also a commentary of how dangerous … Continue reading There’s Someone Inside Your House (2021) Review

Nightbooks (2021) Review

Alex (Winslow Fegley) is a boy that loves to write scary stories. He is obsessed with all things supernatural. However, things get a little too real when he is kidnapped by an evil witch. Unlike traditional fairy tales tropes, Natacha (Krysten Ritter) is a young woman with horrifying powers that border on demonic. She has a thing for snatching up children and turning them into … Continue reading Nightbooks (2021) Review

Vampires (1998) Review

I have to say this is one of the worst vampire movies I’ve ever seen. I know it came out in the late 90s but damn. The protagonists were one-dimensional middle-aged men with no clear motivation. Sure, evil bloodsuckers are bad but you have to have a reason to hunt them. I’m certainly not putting my neck on the line for a big payday. Jack … Continue reading Vampires (1998) Review
