The unknown terrifies me. I like movies that keep me guessing.

    Everybody Dies by the End


    One of the funniest indie horrors I’ve ever seen! A masterful performance from Vinny Curran, who's easily one of the greatest unknown actors I've ever come across. It's a quality debut film for found footage and the storytelling is brilliant.

    Like Cocaine Bear, enjoying with an audience only makes it better. The dialogue is pretty smart and the twist, while pretty obvious, still manages to surprise with pleasant disgust.

    My only notes here is that Curran's performance seems to steal…

    I cannot accurately rate this film because I have participation bias - I am attached and my brother is the creator. However, I will mention what others have said about it.

    I should point out many have made it clear: this is not a film for everyone. Some have admitted a rewatch or two helped them understand it better. If you enjoy the underground, arthouse and experimental films that make the most of their low budget, this is for you.…

    This movie was really well done. The ending overall was a bit of a stretch into pretentious territory, but it didn't bother me that much. I was concerned for how good the first half was, that the second half may be a downer. It did drag throughout, but not too much.

    It had some of the most impressive body horror effects I've seen since Lovecraft Country. I remember watching Saint Maud, which I didn't really like that much, and wanted…

    It was a nostalgic trip down memory lane, reminding me of the beanie baby craze my own mother went through. The cast was great and the story had a lot of focus on women empowerment, or lack there of, which is a great message to keep at the forefront of our society. There were a bit too many time jumps, back and forth, forth and back, and so on for my liking though.

    Not Galifianakis’ best role, but a memorable…

    I need a drink and an anxiety pill after watching Justin Long teach me everything I need to know about using a tape measurer. This is Cabin in the Woods, Silence of the Lambs, and Parasite all together as its own movie. This is exactly how you make something fresh in the era of sequels, spin-offs and reboots. Best horror movie I’ve seen since Hereditary!

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    An incredible look at just how much great power requires great responsibility. The acting was so, so emotional throughout. The trailer gave hints at what to expect, but I wasn't ready for a lot of it. The villains returning were a nice touch, especially seeing Dafoe cackling and the intimidating Alfred Molina again. We got so much more of Maguire and Garfield than most of us expected. I felt so appreciated to have cameos that were more of supporting characters than bit parts. I was blown away by the performances, the story, the visuals, everything. So refreshing.
