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

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

The Invisible Man (2020) Review

This might be one of the best movies of 2020. I purchased this when it was available on-demand. It was a whole vibe and a scary one at that. Listen, Leigh Whannell knows how to make some horror. Do you understand me? This man has written for two of my beloved franchises; SaW and Insidious. His take on H.G. Well’s The Invisible Man is bone-chilling … Continue reading The Invisible Man (2020) Review

Fear Street: Part 3 – 1666 (2021) Review

We’ve arrived at the conclusion of the Fear Street trilogy on Netflix. I have to say I’m a little disappointed with the conclusion. Fear Street Part 3 is composed of two different stories, as if the director forgot about Part One. Deena reunited the dismembered hand with its body and was sent into a trance. When she came to, she saw life through the eyes … Continue reading Fear Street: Part 3 – 1666 (2021) Review

Fear Street: Part 2 – 1978 (2021) Review

These FEAR Street movies keep getting better. Comparing the first one, FEAR Street: Part One – 1994, I think 1978 is the superior film. When it comes to originality, there’s much to be desired. It clearly paid homage to the Friday the 13th franchise. However, there’s enough character development and subplots that prevent it from being a complete rip off. The teenagers in this movie … Continue reading Fear Street: Part 2 – 1978 (2021) Review

The Wolf of Snow Hollow (2020) Review

I am a stan for werewolf movies. There’s something I find fascinating about the deadly creatures. In The Wolf of Snow Hollow, a town is terrorized by a series of brutal murders every full moon. Officer Marshall (Jim Cummings) is charged with finding the culprit while battling with his belief in the supernatural. It’s a nice who-done-it mystery chalked full of humor and graphic displays … Continue reading The Wolf of Snow Hollow (2020) Review

The Woman In The Window (2021) Review

Amy Adams has been involved with some of my favorite films. From Man of Steel to Arrival. One day I was on YouTube and came across the trailer for this Netflix original. When I saw Gary Oldman was involved, my mind was made up. The title tells you everything you need to know, except for why Anna Fox (Adams) doesn’t go outside. One of the … Continue reading The Woman In The Window (2021) Review

Fear Street Part 1: 1992 (2021) Review

It’s been so long since I read a Fear Street book. When I saw that Netflix was releasing one movie each week, I thought it was a unique marketing approach. R.L. Stine is one of the key contributors to my love for the horror genre. From the awesome cover art to the collectable box sets, I spent most of my childhood reading his works. What … Continue reading Fear Street Part 1: 1992 (2021) Review
