ESCAPE ROOM

Happy New Year, everybody! Well, at least it is a happy new year for a few days until that first Friday… that first Friday when a movie studio dumps whatever film they’re too embarrassed to release at any other time of the year. Oh, yes, it’s the Dump Month of January, […]

BLACK MIRROR: BANDERSNATCH

With video games being the one and only exception, experiencing art is a completely passive activity, with no actual impact on the art coming from the person being entertained. When we watch a movie, we’re not consulted about how the story goes, or what decisions the characters […]

UNFRIENDED: DARK WEB

This may or may not come as a surprise, but I actually kind of enjoyed the first Unfriended. Yeah, the acting and dialogue were terrible and it wasn’t the least bit scary, but I really enjoyed the novelty of the concept and how creative the filmmakers got with […]

HEREDITARY

As much as I love horror, it takes a specific combination of certain elements in order for it to scare me. For instance, I don’t find demonic or supernatural stuff very scary. While I can acknowledge that The Exorcist is one of the finest horror films of all time, […]

A QUIET PLACE

When I was a child, there was this board game called Don’t Wake Daddy. The goal was to sneak around the board to get to the kitchen late at night, trying to avoid any hazards that will cause noise and wake up pops. If you cause a commotion and […]
