• There's Someone Inside Your House

    There's Someone Inside Your House

    ★★★★

    As a slasher There’s Someone Inside Your House is beyond solid and violent as fuck! Blending it with teen drama didn’t work as it should’ve, but that didn’t ruin the fun for me. The talented cast really gave it their all. I’d love to see a sequel at some point.

  • False Positive

    False Positive

    ★★★

    False Positive jumps so much between “mommy brain” and fever dream that it becomes unclear what’s real and what isn’t. The bizarre makes place for the macabre towards the end, turning it into a convoluted commentary on one too many topics. A boldly entertaining pandemonium.

  • Stillwater

    Stillwater

    ★★★★

    Tom McCarthy plays with a couple of genres in Stillwater, which feels more like a French film even though it’s about an American in search for the truth. The character development makes this story an affecting one with plenty of admirable elements and performances.

  • The Night House

    The Night House

    ★★★½

    The Night House is by no means perfect, but it plays cleverly with grief in a haunting way that feels refreshing to the horror genre. The sound design, David Bruckner’s direction and Rebecca Hall’s performance all contribute to fleshing out a truly chilling and ambitious story.

  • Halloween Kills

    Halloween Kills

    Halloween Kills doesn’t even try to build suspense or give fans of the 2018 film any time with the cast that started this new trilogy. This worthless sequel is an absolute mess from start to finish, proving once again this franchise is dead dead dead.

  • The Good Dinosaur

  • Goodnight Mommy

    Goodnight Mommy

    ★★★½

    Kids do the darndest things…

  • The Beta Test

    The Beta Test

    ★★★

    The Beta Test feels like Eyes Wide Shut-lite meets American Psycho. This is mainly because of Jim Cummings’ electric performance which is completely mental. The story itself is intriguing enough to pull you in even though the ending is a bit of a let down. Stylish and clever.

  • Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    ★★★

    Venom: Let There Be Carnage is a silly fun ride. Both Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson embrace the ridiculousness of their characters and make it work. Venom just jumped up my list of favourite MCU “heroes”. A solid entertaining popcorn flick 🖤

  • The Ape Woman

    The Ape Woman

    ★★★½

    This 4K restoration of Marco Ferreri’s controversial film, The Ape Woman, is a tragically nightmarish tale of manipulation, that not only watches like a bizarre melodrama, but infuriates at how the nature of this story still can be implemented on different minorities within our modern day society.

  • Madres

    Madres

    ★★★½

    I wasn’t fully “vibing” with the supernatural aspect of Madres as it seemed so… mediocre, but there’s another realistic layer to this that just rocked me to my core — which is where the true horror takes center stage. Gaslighting & genocide disguised as superstition. Shocking!

  • The Manor

    The Manor

    ★★★½

    Director/writer Axelle Carolyn has crafted a suspenseful horror film that’s often quite depressing. Barbara Hershey, who’s always a joy to watch, convincingly plays the coolest grandma alive. An intriguing premise that’s also well executed.
