The Hunt Is (Back) On!

Late in 2019 Universal Pictures pulled the Damon Lindelof and Nick Cuse-written thriller The Hunt due to complaints about the subject matter (rich Liberals hunting down and killing select conservatives) combined with a mass shooting that happened in El Paso, Texas in August of that year. Apparently they feel that there’s been enough time between […]

REview: Prey (2019)

Franck Khalfoun’s Prey is a fascinating movie, though not always in the way you’d like in the sense that it takes multiple storylines and brings them together in a way that doesn’t quite mesh. The main storyline revolves around Toby (Logan Miller) who, seemingly in an effort to recover from the death of his father, […]

REview: Knives Out (2019)

Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper) was–somewhat deservedly–the subject of much opprobrium for The Last Jedi from many in the fan community and Knives Out is the followup.

REview: The Pool (2018)

The Pool isn’t a bad film, but it’s isn’t terribly good either. Let me explain. Theeradej Wongpuapan (who carries most of the movie, along with a CGI–I think. For the most part it’s really good–crocodile) and Ratnamon Ratchiratham are both decent actors and give good performances. The movie is well shot and lit and the […]

REview – Crawl (2019)

I admit to choosing Midsommar over Alexandre’s Aja’s Crawl last weekend–after all, I’ve seen his best (which to my reckoning is his remake of Wes Craven’s 1977 movie, The Hills Have Eyes and his worst, which I think is Horns) and seeing the latter is more recent then the former I think I had a […]

Netflix Prepares Sequel to Haunting Of Hill House (Sort Of)

Anyone who’s seen Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House–despite it being only loosely based upon Shirley Jackson’s novel–likely recognize it as brilliant. Which is why news of a sequel isn’t a surprise, though what is is that instead of tackling another version Jackson’s novel Flanagan is basing the sequel, The Haunting Of Bly Manor on […]
