Damaged : Movie Review

The trouble with David Fincher’s seminal 1995 horror thriller Se7en is that it spawned all the knockoffs. Its “serial killer taunts detectives” trope isn’t a new thing by any stretch of the imagination (reminder: Se7en was only four years separated from another linchpin detective procedural, The Silence of the Lambs), but in the words of […]

Sting : Movie Review

Full disclosure: I’m an arachnophobe. Straight up. Yes, I understand their importance in the food chain, and hooray for them eating mosquitoes and all, but small or large, spiders to me just… euuughhh. So, how was Kiah Roache-Turner’s Sting for me? Honestly, fairly enjoyable while tweaking discomfort levels up just enough maintain a steady atmosphere […]

Dogman : Movie Review

March 29, 2024 / 0 Comments

The best that can be said about Luc Besson’s Dogman is that it keeps your attention. Starting in medias res and looping back from past to present, at least there’s enough there to make you want to see what happens next. Now, whether you can hang with weirdness for weirdness’ sake and veer wildly along […]

Available in the UK on Digital Download from 1st April; pre-order available at iTunes and Amazon. You know how sometimes, you’re watching a movie and you feel like you’ve seen it done before, but there’s enough of a new spin given to it that makes it feel fresh and vital? I got that same feeling from […]

Late Night with the Devil : Movie Review

I love horror movies. (My wife can tell you that they’re often my favorite thing to throw on when I go to sleep, often to her chagrin.) They can be fun and entertaining, and they offer you the thrill of being scared without being in danger, if that’s your thing. But it always goes the […]

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire – Movie Review

March 20, 2024 / 0 Comments
Posted in

This new batch of Ghostbusters films has a wonderful way of making you grin like a goofy idiot, from the opening frames to the final credits. In Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, co-writer Gil Kenan takes the directorial reins from fellow co-writer Jason Reitman and, for better and worse, doesn’t deviate much from the blueprint of Ghostbusters: […]

Exhuma : Movie Review

March 14, 2024 / 0 Comments

The Korean ghost story Exhuma gets your spine tingling in all the right places. Writer/director Jang Jae-hyun creates a world in which spirits work through the unwitting and are fought by rituals, lowly funeral directors, and globe-trotting specialists. It’s portrayed as just an everyday action, like going to a strip mall to fix your vacuum […]

The first I’d heard of Sir Nicholas Winton was in a clip from a show called “That’s Life!” someone posted on Facebook. An elderly man is told that he’s sitting next to a woman who was saved from the Nazis by him as a child. Further into the video, the host asks if anyone else […]

Trailer Drop: THE CROW (2024)

Thirty years ago, the world was gifted Brandon Lee’s final film, The Crow, based on a graphic novel by James O’Barr. This cinematic interpretation of the dark world of Eric Draven and his quest to avenge his and his girlfriend Shelly’s deaths became a touchstone for teens and moviegoers, further becoming part of our lives through […]

The Island Between the Tides : Movie Review

2024 Cinequest Film Festival Going into The Island Between the Tides blind – not knowing its origins or anything outside a base plot description – allows this film’s mysteries and inner workings to be discovered with surprise. Conversely, knowing what the film is based upon adds a different shade to the proceedings, changing perceptions irreversibly […]
