    "Madhouse" aka "There Was a Little Girl" is an Italian slasher from 1981 that is part of UK's famous list of "Video Nasties".

    Directed and produced by Ovidio G. Assonitis, the real director of the disastrous "Piranha Part Two: The Spawning" (which stains James Cameron's professional credits to this day) and producer of several other cheap B horror movies, "Madhouse" is a surprisingly competent slasher with touches of…

    God Told Me To

    ★★★½

    Part of HOOPT🚨BER 7.0: “Stay Inside (the Salt Circle)!” challenge.

    ---------------//---------------

    A genderless alien, claiming to be God, communicates telepathically with his/her chosen disciples and demands the shedding of innocent blood as an offering.

    The mythology behind Larry Cohen's "God Told Me To" is fascinating. Even with the strong supernatural elements, the plot tries its best to create connections with our reality and even dares to cast doubt on the true origin and purpose of great names in human…

    While watching "Baba Yaga: Terror of the Dark Forest" the impression I got is that the screenwriter watched all the most lucrative recent horror films, especially The Conjuring Universe films and the "IT" remake, made a list of the points in common between them and simply mixed everything together without worrying about insignificant details like originality or atmosphere.

    Directed by Svyatoslav Podgaevskiy, a young Russian director responsible for…

    The Open House

    ½

    Another cheap psychological horror film from Netflix, just like last year's "Clinical" and so many others. Here you can find a huge selection of the most worn-out clichés of the genre. All performed in the most boring way possible.

    This movie has no soul. It looks like it was made by a robot. And most of the time it seems that it's interpreted by robots as well.

    Dylan Minnette goes through the entire film alternating between two facial expressions: boredom…

    Hereditary

    What a wicked and sick film. I loved it!

    Many people blamed a critic who said that this movie was "The Exorcist" of this generation for causing a false expectation about the real intent of the film. I agree with him. "Hereditary", in many ways, is a profound evolution of the central fear addressed by the 1973 classic: the fear of losing control of one's own body and mind. But this time, without the focus on the contortions, the rotting…
