REview- Shadow (2018)

Yimou Zhang’s Shadow is a remarkable bit of filmmaking. The movie revolves around two kingdoms on the precipice of war, and the political intrigues that come about. That doesn’t sound like much, but as executed by Zhang, it’s pretty remarkable stuff. And did I mention the entire movie is rendered in shades of white, black […]

Trailer Into REaction – The Witcher (2019) | Main Trailer

Having seen the most recent trailer for Netflix’s The Witcher it honestly doesn’t reveal any more than the teaser trailer did, which is a bit of a bummer. That being said, the production looks to be of the highest caliber, which gorgeous production design and an interesting visual esthetic. I won’t mention anything about it […]

REview – Eli (2019)

Ciarán Foy’s Eli is a surprise because Netflix is at best uneven as far as their horror offerings go. In other words, for every The Haunting Of Hill House there’s at least three Hemlock Groves.

REview – House Of The Witch (2019)

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. Then you see the rest of the movie, where all that promise built up with that opening is blithely discarded because it isn’t terribly good. […]

In The Tall Grass (2019) | Official Trailer

You can say a lot of things about Netflix, but they do Stephen King adaptations right. So far they’ve done two, 1922 and Gerald’s Game, and both are really, really good perhaps for the reason that they concentrate on human stories with supernatural overtones, as opposed to supernatural stories that revolve around people. The latest […]
