Upgrade Movie Review. Violent, Gory And Fun To Watch

Upgrade Movie Review: For better or worse, I look back fondly on action movies of the ‘80s. The ridiculous plots, over-the-top action, and unapologetic celebration of gore all occupy an oddly tender place among my childhood memories. Leigh Whannell’s Upgrade is a 21st century heir to the movies that made Rambo, Robocop, and the Terminator […]

A Quiet Place Movie Review

It’s no secret that 2017 was an outstanding year for horror and genre films, a year which culminated in Academy awards for genre films Get Out and The Shape of Water. A Quiet Place looks to keep that momentum going as it is the first truly great horror film of 2018. Packed with as much […]

The Snowman: Movie Review

Thomas Alfredson returns after 6 years away from the director’s chair to helm the big-screen adaptation of Jo Nesbo’s novel, The Snowman. With a cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, J.K. Simmons and Val Kilmer among others, The Snowman seemed poised to be a great film. Yet despite having a fantastic cast, director and […]

Happy Death Day: Movie Review

In the nearly 25 years since the release of Groundhog Day, starring the incomparable Bill Murray, time loops have become a common movie device, for better or worse. That 1993 comedy employed the device so famously as to hijack the holiday after which it was named. When someone says “Groundhog Day,” the idea of reliving […]

IT: Movie Review

There’s something special about youthful imagination. The same imagination that inspires childhood aspirations also conjures monsters and boogeymen. The cruel twist is dreaming of one day becoming an astronaut is as fun as believing in monsters is terrifying. Out of this contradiction, we get It, the latest Stephen King novel to get a big-screen adaptation. […]

Annabelle:Creation – Movie Review

Nearly three years after the first Annabelle movie was released, the terrifying doll returns in the form of a prequel directed by Lights Out creator, David F. Sandberg. I should preface this by saying that while I loved The Conjuring, its Annabelle spin-off didn’t work for me at all. I groaned at the idea of […]

Wish Upon: Movie Review

The past couple of years have seen a revival of the horror genre. Since 2013 we have seen outstanding films that includes (among others) The Conjuring, The Babadook, It Follows, Lights Out, Don’t Breathe, and most recently, Get Out. For us horror fans, the last 4 years have been a blessing and we have been […]

It Comes At Night: Movie Review

It Comes at Night – a vague and ominous title befitting a movie that itself is vague and ominous. The title is great, if only it fit this movie, it would be even better. Set in a world reeling from a deadly pandemic, this movie’s danger isn’t the exclusive domain of the dark, so the […]

Split Movie Review

Split Movie Review: M. Night Shyamalan’s latest thriller, Split, is a complex story of a man living with 24 distinct personalities, played masterfully by James McAvoy. M. Night returns to write and direct in the genre he’s become synonymous with, and once again delivers an unexpected twist. Not a spoiler since it’s what we’ve come […]
