  • The Exorcist

    The Exorcist

    ★★★★★

    What can be said about "The Exorcist" that hasn't already been said? Almost fifty years since it released and it's still one of, if not THE finest horror movie ever made!

    "The Exorcist" sees a young child placed in the centre of a titanic battle between the forces of good and evil. It's a film about faith and spiritualism. It's a film that showcases that even in your own home you're not safe from external forces. It's a fear that…

  • Dracula

    Dracula

    ★★★★½

    It's a great feeling when you re-watch a film that you previously disliked and all of a sudden everything clicks into place and you realise what a great film it actually is. I had that experience last night with Francis Ford Coppola's "Dracula." I originally watched this film in my late teens/early twenties and I didn't care for it in the slightest, in fact I'm pretty sure I drifted off towards the end of the film. Over the years the…

    Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man

    ★★★★½

    Pfft.....Who needs "Avengers: Endgame" when you can watch the best cinematic crossover in "Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man."

  • Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives

    Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives

    ★★★½

    "Jason Lives" is a solid return to form after the minor letdown of "New Beginning." Jason is back with a vengeance and this time he's not messing around. He makes up for lost time by delivering one of the highest (if not the highest) kill count of the entire series.

    Tommy Jarvis is back, recast with Thom Matthews, and despite Jason being dead and buried he digs up the grave to make sure of his handiwork. Unfortunately, a freak lightning…

  • 1922

    1922

    ★★★★

    "1922" is a slow, methodical look at guilt and the consequences of moral compromise. Adapted from Stephen King’s novella "1922" is a film that will divide certain audiences. After a summer of successful, suspenseful King adaptations (IT, Gerald’s Game) this acts almost as an anti-king film. It’s a film that basks in its atmosphere, it's also a film that's solely focused on its characters rather than plot. Thomas Jane stars as Wilfred James a dedicated ranch owner who conspires with…

  • The Open House

    The Open House

    The Open House is a dull lacklustre thriller from Netflix. I don't think Netflix understand yet that people wandering around an enormous empty house isn't very thrilling. The plot essentially, is about a Mother (Piercey Dalton) and her son (Dylan Minnette) moving into her sisters house whilst it's up for sale in Canada (I think) after the accidental death of her husband.

    The film was competently directed and the cinematography, staging, framing were all fine. As was the acting which…
