    All Through the House


    I can handle poorly delivered dialogue, but the transphobic/cissexist ""twist"' was just unnecessary. I get the homage, but in 2015 they should've been aware that it's problematic in a lot of ways despite Sleepaway Camp being iconic and great. Sleepaway is great in spite of it, this film is even worse because of it.

    tw/cw: blood/gore/body horror
    aforementioned transphobia/cissexism

  • Street Trash

    Street Trash


    Basically these stars are solely for the technicolor goop gore because there are far grosser, nastier things in this film. Woof.

    tw/cw: blood/gore/body horror
    rape/sexual assault
    misogyny/racism/homophobic slurs
    idk there's probably more than I'm forgetting at this point just about everything not great is in it rest assured

  • In the Shadow of the Moon

    In the Shadow of the Moon


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

    Sure did make PoC the bad guys here huh like I know I get they're ACTUALLY not ""bad"" but. Ehhh.

    tw/cw: blood/eye scream
    animal death (pigs, sort of on screen, some blood shown)

  • IO



    It's not an AWFUL film necessarily but there's just not a whole lot that happens nor did I feel anything much for the characters so eh.

    tw/cw: Nothing rly

  • Replicas



    Unfortunately just pretty predictable ultimately, and tbh there's a LOT of poor decisions made. And what a fuckin weird ending that was not remotely satisfying.

    tw/cw: blood/gore/body horror
    child death

  • Lake Placid

    Lake Placid


    It was always going to be questionable whether I'd enjoy a movie about a big bad gator when I love them and don't like them being demonized, but this one made it harder by treating the few women characters in a shitty, sexist manner.

    Anyway Betty White was right yall should've just left them alone.

    tw/cw: lots of underwater stuff
    incest joke
    fatphobic comments
