It Comes At Night (2017)
It's tight, mysterious, exasperating, horrifying and complete. People who live in bubbles should never venture out. 20-Feb-2020
Isle, The (2018)
A spanking ghost story with no presence and sensuality to back it up. 20-Feb-2020
Train To Busan (2016)
Zombie apocalypse gets an epic disaster movie treatment. I thought there was nothing left to do with a zombie but I was thrillingly surprised. The zombies are quick, staggering and evolved. Yeong Sang-ho returns as many things as he borrowed, lending it a huge amount of humanity and eagerly expanding the perception of claustrophobic spaces. Daddy mass clobbered, daddy major stepped up and daughter darling broke our hearts. 18-Feb-2020
Son, The (2019)
A husband thinks his wife's environmental overprotectiveness towards their son is the reason she's keeping the boy from him. Everyone is intense, suspicious and naturally creepy. You clench to the finish line waiting in exasperation to find out who's what. It satisfies and saddles a surprising happy ending that complements the horror. 17-Feb-2020
Horse Girl (2020)
The title sets it up for failure. Mare straddles insanity via conspiracy theory, almost every character is hypocritical and alienating and the balance of insanity versus sanity is insane. (Hint: the horse wins!) 15-Feb-2020
Selfie From Hell (2018)
I would have jumped, had reason backed it up. 13-Feb-2020
Safe Harbour (2018-)
Would you save a life if you think it puts you in jeopardy? It gripped and swerved evenly between the privileged and the do goodness, accentuating all the flaws, the heart and the life balancing we all endure. Each wields power that the new world has entitled them to but misconception, anxiety and unburdening (through violence) keep manifesting the elephant in the room...stereotyping to get a point across or to do more harm...to run away from it for as long as the effect is not needed.
It loses two moons because it ended with everyone getting a car and it feels the threat was for naught. The ending is a whimper. Life has consequences. 08-Feb-2020
Long Weekend (1978)
Naturists get punished for victimizing nature. A scary environmentalist panty creamer. 05-Feb-2020
Stranger, The (2020)
The wows were cross-stitched to perfection. 05-Feb-2020
I'm only two episodes in but I think it's about a future where snitching trends...like, "save the world" kind of..."trendy." I'm intrigued. 02-Feb-2020
It's the kind of creepy movie you take your significant other, to turn them off marriage. 27-Jan-2020
Invitation To Hell (1984)
It was a film better tolerated in the present but still a victim of its limitations.
There are golden nuggets:
Wes Craven kept it tight. The spacesuit caper and some action sequences spit art
Soleil Moon Frye does a spot-on imitation of Golem, before his time
La Lucci is a playful and committed demonic force. Tacky with hilarity, bitchiness and nerve
Robert Urich was pretty, in charge and in demand.
In The Tall Grass (2019)
What kills most of King's cinematic depictions is how mumble and jumble detract from realistic scares. 22-Jan-2020
Invaders From Mars (1986)
Tobe and company add too much silliness to the story, the aliens look like ugly toys you win for free and the only alien needed was underutilized (Louise Fletcher.) She knows scary. 31-Dec-2019
V Wars (2019)
The process of becoming a vampire and its side effects are so swift that we are not allotted the time necessary to empathize with them. A kickass slayer (Laura Vandervoort) and some popcorn fun, liven it. 15-Dec-2019
The dialogue seems cobbled together from overused scripts. The bromance and action scintillate in a broth that may contain no nutritional value. 09-Dec-2019
Thing From Another World, The (1951)
Causing terror with good old fashioned Hollywood techniques. The film reboots beautifully because it's brilliant. They delivered a completely terrifying story and trusted the audience to use their imagination. 03-Dec-2019
