The Black Phone (2022) – Movie Review

There’s something different about the ethos which drives director/co-writer Scott Derrickson’s adaptation of Joe Hill’s short story, The Black Phone. It’s not here for gratuitous displays of gore, nor is its purpose to be content with merely scaring its audience (although there are some fairly good jump scares hidden throughout). Instead, The Black Phone rides […]

Double Threat (2022) – Movie Review

Rare are the movies that try to do so much and scream so loudly, yet wind up saying nothing… and the independent action film Double Threat does just that. It is a demonstration of the inability to hold character development with stability and purpose, to the point where we’re screaming for something – anything – […]

Scare Zone – Movie Review

WARNING: This movie contains strobe light effects.

Firestarter (2022) – Movie Review

Let me get this out of the way: I have no attachments to the previous incarnations of Firestarter – neither Stephen King’s 1980 novel nor the 1984 filmed adaptation – in particular. The book was one of King’s first that I ever read, but I barely remember anything from it; I didn’t see the Drew […]

The Innocents (2022) – Movie Review

Becoming. It’s what we all must go through in order to find out about ourselves, what we like, what we don’t like, and what we’re capable of doing. Of course, we’re used to seeing it in superhero films and awesome one-offs like Darkman, Fast Color, or Chronicle. But what if it was as low-key as […]
