    Scream

    ★★★★★

    Scream has been my favorite film franchise for well over half of my lifetime, and if you asked me just two years ago, I would've said you were crazy to think that the main series would ever come back to the big screen. Truth of the matter is, Wes Craven's last film being Scream 4 ended his directorial career on a high note, but left the door open just wide enough for new creatives to fulfill his legacy down the…

    Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City

    ★★★★★

    Resident Evil has officially seen its live action franchise rebooted this week, and holy fucking shit was it a great time. Odds have been stacked against Welcome to Raccoon City since its conception, and with my small knowledge of the games, I think it looks pretty faithful. Much greater atmosphere and scares than the previous set of action movies, and a better cast, too.

    Robbie Amell gave me everything I needed as a Chris Redfield main, and Kaya Scodelario, Hannah John-Kamen,…

    Entropy

    ★★★

    Entropy is my third new horror release of the year, and it used its short 80 minute runtime in a very interesting way. I feel like a lot of films that I watch with a smaller budget like this always try to cut straight to the action, so it was refreshing to see this build up its characters before getting to the good stuff. Truly stunning on a visual basis, and that's evident from the trailer alone -- everybody involved…

    Fear Street: 1666

    ★★★★★

    Fear Street Part Three brings us back to the last film's jaw-dropper of an ending with the best of the series' cast in brand new roles. I've never been the biggest fan of folk horror, but this works; the switch from slasher to supernatural distinguishes this chapter from the last two as the town grows sinister, effectively keeping you guessing what the evil of Fear Street actually is. As the witch hunt begins, so does the feeling of dread, with…

    Candyman

    ★★★★★

    Candyman was a gem for the 90s audience, and Candyman will be another gem today. I can't put into words how surreal this viewing experience was, sitting in a jam packed theater for the first time in a long time with franchise fans new and old. This cast was magnificent; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Teyonah Parris, and Colman Domingo effectively bringing the urban legend back to life, with themes surrounding race and social class utilized in the best way since the…
