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 […]

Trailer Into Reaction : Crawl (2019) | Official Trailer

For awhile Alexandre Aja was the Next Big Thing as far as horror directors go.

A Mediation On Violence In Film
