Nun II, The (2023)
If beliefs cause faith why can't we believe there are no demons? We have to fight them first so we know we're good. Taissa gave great face and Storm Reid was her partner, lapping it all up. They had an interracial team-up that felt genuine. Jonas Bloquet was eliciting Hammer tremors. The nun was still glorious, showing up scantily but creepy and ready to blow. Her backstory held. It's fun watching scared little mean girls. 17-Nov-2023
Jake Wheeler is becoming quite a twink daddy. Devon Evans is aging in reverse. He looks like a kid. Lexy is gutsy without a personal life to lift her up. Jennifer T. and Jennifer C. need to battle for best bitch titles. The writers toned down Jennifer's character and shenanigans and she beams because of it. Devon Sawa has the best character, up to-date. I kept seeing Sawa's name on the credits but couldn't match him to his character, until now. Wow. You mean he was the hot method actor who plays the President? He is as precise in his acting as the puppeteers were on Chucky. The lip sync is perfect, different movements are being explored and the bastard is as funny and wicked as ever. The focus of this season is The White House and aging. Love it! 03-Dec-2021
Boogeyman, The (2023)
The film shook our paranoia but failed to capture the man in Boogey. It was another Steven King spider. 11-Oct-2023
Ouija: Origin Of Evil (2016)
The family dynamic is strong. Mother is at a loss because husband died and left her with two daughters to raise and lead. Money is tight so she resorts to scamming people psychically as an excuse to raise morality. Eldest daughter's teenage dream keeps getting interrupted. Baby sister misses daddy a lot. Her mother parents her daughters into thinking every tragedy has a fairytale ending, preparing them for nothing. Creepy little one decides to use an ouija board to manifest her dad. Things don't go as planned. Teenage romance is doomed, mother starts believing in anything because she can't deal and baby girl is a spoiled little bitch. Yay. I think it's her hair. I love it. The evil's existence mutes an almost classic horror film by not making sense. 05-Jun-2023
Lights Out (2016)
Tricks were forceful, the atmosphere foretold and ideas were bouncing. The cast was fulfilling, the monster was unforgiving and a stepdaddy explanation as to why he didn't do more was needed to clarify a few months worth of questions. Wouldn't he have encountered the monster before? Why did the monster strike, now? Yes, I ruined it for myself thinking about stupid shit but the scares were still thrilling. 04-Jun-2023
I Spit On Your Grave (1978)
It would be exploitation if the rape weren't the catalyst to the main's empowerment. Woman alone stays in the country where blue collar men with too much work, time, ugly women and no manners abound. City girl is a writer who handles well, is lonely, trusting and helpless. Among the victimizers is a challenged man that is susceptible to gang mentality and betrayal. The rape had elements of realism and buffoonery. The men are cartoonish during it, pulling faces and acting like they've never fucked anything before. Maybe, it was to soften audience blow. Our lady was courageous on and off camera. The comeback is not as powerful because the violence was of the Kool-Aid variety. They cut the penis dismemerment scene! Boo. 4K adds the clarity that time fixed. Scenes sparkle with beauty and the protagonist is a Charlie's Angel vigilante. 16-May-2023
Horror In The High Desert (2021)
I don't know if I would have reacted so strikingly if I knew that it wasn't what it was. I think blind is the proper way to see it and befits the mock ending. The acting is the accuracy that sells the illusion. The words and direction built interest, tension and fright. Giving the villain an excuse was a misstep because it lets the cat out of the bag. It kicked Blair Witch's ass. 20-Apr-2023
I See You (2019)
A family is stalked by a presence whilst dealing with infidelity, trust and motherhood. Halfway through, it dishes out answers. We are ready for an anything can happen scenario and it delivers. There were no whys answered but the clues added up. Helen Hunt established intelligence until she was abruptly cut off. Phrogs are homeless people with better digs. The surprises kept coming because we weren't given a fair study of who the characters were. The prequel. 1. Ignore the phrogs. Expose the emotions that catapulted the insanity. 2. Rewind. 3. Study what the characters knew. 4. Fuck phrogs! 28-Mar-2023
Omen, The (1976)
An opulent chiller with legends, iconics, a badass score, glorious shots, intriguing plot, animal attacks, nannies in charge and that kid's wondrous face. It fit all the musts neatly. When Gregory Peck wishes his son were dead, he meant it. Lee Remick made the arduous task of rearing a strange child heartbreakingly empathetic. Evil emanates from every corner. 25-Mar-2023
Snowtown Murders, The (2011)
A rough telling of a serial murderer who uses his hate for gays, family and all that get in his way to torture and kill. 4 brothers live with momma on a decrepit block, in a creaking house and a scary neighborhood. A neighbor babysits three of the boys and sexually molests them. I didn't quite understand how the mother found out. Did the LGBTQ tell her? She meets a man full of hatred who disguises it with charm. The teen boy is having boy problems. He keeps getting raped, losing friends and his mother is a follower who can't attract a proper man to follow. Teen bonds with new daddy unaware that he's an asshole. New daddy can't stop talking about killing pedos. The followers in his life concur. They should be allowed to kill them freely. Daddy gets into teen's head and secretly shares a sadistic side that the kid embraces because he is a victim of the people daddy wants to eviscerate. The Australian cast are so realistic that I couldn't understand them. TU cc. There are images that keep repeating in my brain because that caused it to silently scream whilst watching them. There's murder, rape, perversion, animal desecration, torture, hurt and realism. The film qualifies as Texas Chainsaw's cousin. 09-Mar-2023
Love Trip: Paris (2023-)
Wherein privileged American ladies travel abroad and are shocked that their toxic love speaks other languages. Mirko's storyline profiled him as a panty shredder. That was such a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles rip. 02-Mar-2023
The beginning sort of made me want to quit. It was quick and basic, trying to establish a rapport with the characters for an emotional end impact. I wish it would have concentrated on one trip and given us an enacted arc. We felt them because it's a human response to fellow suffering. The Morgan played the miserable dad with nary a smirk. I pictured someone tightening his balls every time he tried. The script gets better, in a technical sense, when the action becomes terrifying. 23-Feb-2023
Love Island Australia (2018-)
S4E26. Jake Gyllenhall Superman with a dorky accent. Country Quasimodo is punished for allowing girls to use him in a non-sexual manner. Samson who hates Delilah actually thinks he's got his sexuality down pat. Hawaiian Punch hasn't been opened yet, his teeth aren't yellow. Why talk about girls when Callum is the only thing worth eating. 05-Jan-2023
I missed the UK version so much that I resorted to this backup. This is a different animal, full of seriousness and ferocity.
The men are cave dwellers and the women, the suppliers that keep toxic men conquering.
If all a woman wants is bigness, handsomeness, grunting and darkness you are forsaking the feminist dream.
The brutality of what each sex stands for baffles me. 29-Jun-2020
An artful relentless mess in which Lord Nicholas takes on religion and splits his asshole kicking its butt. 12-Oct-2022
Women commanding the gates of hell with a distorted Vogue look. The story is simple, shoots straight and pummels. Beauty is desecrated, the mind becomes distorted, anyone can be a sacrifice and the victims can fight back. The box has personality, the characters supply empathy and the deaths are nerve rackingly clever. Make-up, costume and effects wowed. A lady Pinhead origin story with lots of sex and violence would be most welcome. 09-Oct-2022
