Annabelle Comes Home – Movie Review

Annabelle Comes Home is a smashing scarefest reliant on a heavy mood established by enthralling performances, brooding cinematography, and Joseph Bishara’s dread-filled score. Looking for dramatic horror à la Ari Aster’s Hereditary or Jordan Peele’s Us? Go somewhere else.

The Conjuring

Every once in a while, a film comes along that hushes my bitching about mainstream horror. Last year it was the nerve-rattling “Sinister”, an atmospheric supernatural creeper that melded sub-genres to create something undeniably terrifying. It was a masterful exercise in tension, relying on our imaginations to do most of the heavy lifting. If not […]
