Monkey Shines (1988)
A fit daddy mentally bound by matriarchy becomes paraplegic. He receives a horrified nurse, mother pseudo, a no nonsense trainer and a mentally enhanced monkey.
The art of training an animal lives in its soul. The monkey represents the current female to determine his life. The monkey is a frighteningly adorable beast.
George A. Romero packs it with Hitchcock simplicity and sensical horror. Each frame a joy to ponder.
Jason Beghe is an addictive force.
The mother/son spar sliced bluntly.
I lurched, I was engrossed and the end was brutally sweet. 07-Jul-2020
Doctor Sleep (2019)
The exploration of the past was literary.
Alex Essoe's spot on Shelley Duvall is impressive because it harmonizes with the film's recognition of Kubrick's obsession with perfection.
It pays homage to the past but the film frees itself from Kubrick's grasp and becomes its own thing, maybe something King had in mind.
I was not impressed by the magicians until they ate a child.
Kids that are special get eaten.
Ewan embodies the spirit of a child.
The cast is multi-verse, the action rips and even though the story veers into its own thing, the return is pretty exciting. 28-Jun-2020
Mom is constantly terrorized and sexually assaulted by an unseen entity.
The exploitation becomes void in the hands of Barbara Hershey who issues the attacks with common sense and appropriate care for her children whose humiliation and mental instability is generated by an invasion of supernatural supremacy. She's great.
Ron Silver is smart daddy with precise words, psychological principle and "off the books" consideration.
It scares because the lost of body control is a great one. 27-Jun-2020
Invisible Man, The (2020)
The blood transfusion works to bring an old tale new life. The invisible remains a figment throughout which makes us suspicious of the scares. (We don't want to jump for nothing.) The great Moss is type stuck in Handmaiden suffering. Horror for a new age, rummaging with bold ideas, technically mapped for complete culmination. 12-Jun-2020
Shipwrecked on Predator Island. Kiersey Clemons flexes survivor strength but the monster is a fishy abstract with animal velocity. Had it contained a bit of instinctual territorial vengeance, it would have crashed the waves. 13-Jun-2020
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019)
Mr. Rogers was part of my baby ghetto but I was never aware of being a fan. He relaxed me, informed me, and chimed the right bells to put a baby to sleep. The movie depends on Tom Hanks delivering the persona of a man who defies goodness. Hanks is perfect in intonation, style and determination but he adds an element of creepiness that only comes with voracious study and involuntary realization. I kept waiting for him to go Joker and annihilate. It ruined it for me. 12-Jun-2020
Chosen Ones, The (2015)
Conning underage girls into sex trafficking by boys/men realizing the fairy tale expectations that mothers inculcate. The subject is severe but the director does not exploit it. He keeps it creative with unseen cuts and human sounds that make the heart race. The heroes are also victims of an establishment that will never recognize a woman's purpose and therefore are powerless to do anything but abet the enemy or become one. Real and disturbing. 20-May-2020
Wicker Man, The (1973)
Christian copper investigates missing child on pagan island. Edward Woodward keeps it desperate and unleashing, the atmosphere is lawless and unethical and the music lilts as well as unsettle. The horror isn't physically evident but mentally, it sticks like gum to a shoe. 19-May-2020
Of course, I was going to hate it. Wrecked performances, grave CGI, clipped penises and roach choreography. I couldn't finish it. 09-May-2020
Lighthouse, The (2019)
A psychology whose study is based at its present moment. Dafoe arghs and puffs with superiority and a seasoning of humanity. Pattinson is learning, maturing and blowing things up. A beautiful coupling. 03-May-2020
Others, The (2001)
Children and the help, quarantined with a compulsive mother obsessed with the idea of being as great as God. It's made of Hitchcock walls, star quality is legend of old and the understated score unnerves. It's refined spookery. Nic is powerhouse mama alleviator and authoritarian, putting the kids sweetly to bed, one minute and wanting to chop their heads off, the next. The ending is ruined once you know it but the lesson still rings true. Nothing ever is as it seems. 27-Apr-2020
Annabelle Comes Home (2019)
The paranormals are lousy parents for enshrining evil in their home, the girl scare torture is kicky and the doll is a creepmeister. 21-Apr-2020
Grudge, The (2020)
It upholds and sometimes surpasses but the ghosts don't terrify like the story and its players are intimating. 10-Apr-2020
Wind, The (2018)
Everything etched to perfection, less the comprehension to make us care. 06-Apr-2020
Madre (Mother) (2016)
An expectant mother with a virulent special needs child, becomes overwhelmed until she meets and hires a kindly filipino grandmother who claims to have cured her own. The treatment consists of communicating with him in her native tongue, pampering him like a favorite child and emotionally distancing him from his natural mother. The boy recuperates, learns to speak filipino and clamps himself onto the mother (nanny) he desperately needs. Mother has her discomforts, daddy is relieved and the household finds much needed bliss. Mother marches along, suspending her doubts and chalking the old woman's takeover as relief. As soon as madre decides to use an app translator to discover what the nanny is communicating to her son, the mama wars begin. Daddy is gaslighting, mama is hallucinating and racial political correctness is straining. The film makes a point that the intent to make everyone legitimate renders safety mute even whey they act stereotypically. It's a nail-biter I don't recommend to expectant mothers... unless they want to drop early. 02-Apr-2020
