DETROIT

You have to be wary of those films out there that are marketed as, “The terrifying secret you never knew behind this big historical event.” 99% of the time it rings completely hollow and the films are usually just falsely crafted narratives to increase dramatic tension. There’s always that 1%, […]

IT COMES AT NIGHT

One of the main criticisms levied against horror films is that they’re often devoid of any sort of characterization, story, or thematic depth. Sure, the main intent is to scare you and if a horror film does so, it technically succeeds, but where’s the fun if there’s […]

THE MUMMY

Thanks to Disney and Marvel, cinematic universes are all the rage now! Ever since The Avengers made a billion dollars and proved huge, expansive universes could be successful, every other movie studio scrounged up whatever properties they could in order to have their own interconnected franchises. It’s gone […]

RAW

Blood and guts are disgusting, not scary. Jump scares are startling, not scary. I’m very particular when it comes to horror films. Great gore effects and a well executed jump scare can be effective, but they’ve been so poorly overdone to the point where the effect has […]

GET OUT

It’s not uncommon for actors to foray into the world of directing. Some actors, such as Clint Eastwood and Ron Howard, became even more prolific when they were behind the camera. However, it’s a bit different when the director primarily comes from a sketch comedy background, like […]

SPLIT

M. Night Shyamalan is one of the most fascinating filmmakers out there. He’s practically the definition of hit and miss, but no matter the quality, his films are always intriguing. With his well received 2015 release The Visit and now 2017’s Split, people have been murmuring about a […]

OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL

Completely studio driven horror films are usually nothing but trash. I don’t think one person in the world was begging for a follow-up to 2014’s allegedly awful Ouija. It did make a lot of money, though, so of course Universal was quick to get a sequel, or […]
