REview – The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018)

I didn’t much like 2008’s The Strangers because I had the feeling that it didn’t quite know what it was supposed to be. Despite the movie being based upon a real crime, the Keddie murders, the antagonists appeared almost supernatural, vanishing and appearing in various places without a sound. Locked doors were no obstacle, which […]

REview – Marianne (2019)

Netflix’s Marianne is a pretty entertaining horror series, which is worth mentioning because there’s plenty of horror out there, and not all of it is worth watching. The series–coming in at a lean eight episodes–revolves around a writer, Emma Larsimon (Victoire Du Bois), who’s drawn by tragedy back to her home town, which begats even […]

REview – House Of The Witch

Alex Merkin’s House Of The Witch has a great opening that hints at all sort of scary things and while it’s nothing you haven’t seen before, it’s pretty well done.

In The Tall Grass (2019) | Official Trailer

You can say a lot of things about Netflix, but they do Stephen King adaptations right.

The latest […]

REview | The Banana Splits Movie (2019)

Expectations are a difficult thing sometimes. I went into the The Banana Splits Movie expecting something perhaps a little subversive, yet…fun. Instead I got a horror movie–what I expected. It’s surprisingly gory at times–with only hints of the subversiveness that I was looking for. And that’s a pity because otherwise, what’s the point? The biggest […]

Haunt (2019) | Official Trailer

I didn’t see IT: Chapter 2 because I was underwhelmed by IT: Chapter 1 so I didn’t quite see the point. And with Doctor Sleep coming sometime in November I’m looking forward to some horror content before that time, so enter Haunt. It sounds vaguely like The Houses October Built, though with Eli Roth directing […]
