  • The Gingerdead Man

    The Gingerdead Man

    ★★

    The editing and pacing of this film is bizarre and it's not GOOD by any means but I did laugh a lot and the romance in it while str8 was weirdly cute tbh.

    tw/cw: sexist language
    couple abuse??? I guess they're not spouses
    blood/gore/body horror

  • Late Night Trains

    Late Night Trains

    ★★

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

    Bleeeech. The rape/sexual assault scenes were not just shown but dragged out gratuitously and included genital mutilation, and then rather than either girl get revenge herself they both die and it's one of the girls' father who inflicts the revenge AND the woman involved gets away with it as far as we know. Not a fan.

    tw/cw: rape/sexual assault/sexual violence, shown
    nudity
    blood/gore
    misogynistic slurs
    Nazism very briefly

  • A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding

    A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding

    ★★

    Somehow didn't capture the same charm as the first one, but fine enough I guess as far as these types of films go.

    tw/cw: Nothing rly???

  • Lords of the Deep

    Lords of the Deep

    ★★

    Not great but I do get Claire being really into the weird stingray creatures because I would be too, plus them actually being the good guys essentially was pretty neat.

    tw/cw: blood

  • Santo vs. the Vampire Women

    Santo vs. the Vampire Women

    ★★

    I'm losing my shit at the vamp that saw a cross, stopped and stared at it, collapsed, and burst into flame. Amazing.

    tw/cw: fire

  • Blood Feast

    Blood Feast

    ★★

    That sure was some acting. Possibly.

    tw/cw: blood/gore/body horror

  • Graveyard Shift

    Graveyard Shift

    ★★

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

    The only character I liked was killed thanks to being the main dude's love interest and tbh try giant rat monster thing seemed justified in killing everyone aside from the black dude so. Boo.

    tw/cw: animal death (rat, sort of shown?)
    blood/gore/body horror

  • Moon of the Wolf

    Moon of the Wolf

    ★★

    A whodunnit but about a werewolf murdering people that unfortunately just isn't all that captivating.

    tw/cw: sexism I think idk
    blood

  • Solo: A Star Wars Story

    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★

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

    Sorry man but Emilia Clarke fighting and killing the antagonist doesn't make up for the one whole WoC dying near instantly for manpain after getting little to know detail about her except that she was a love interest. Bye.

    (and then killing the female droid on top lmao......... incredible)

    tw/cw: epilepsy warning for sure

  • The Creature Walks Among Us

    The Creature Walks Among Us

    ★★

    The Creature design in this is just so doofy with the ill fitting suit, but it's endearing and silly in that way also. The shitty abusive husband less so, but he dies and it's his own fault for multiple reasons so it's fine.

    tw/cw: domestic abuse
    general sexism and all

  • Terror Out of the Sky

    Terror Out of the Sky

    ★★

    BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES

    And men generally being kind of shitty at times but tbh they all should've become polyamorous imo if not for the end.

    tw/cw: insects
    body horror
    animal death (dog, off screen)

  • Malevolent

    Malevolent

    ★★

    The creepiest/best thing in this is the weird ass old song that plays a few times that's genuinely unsettling and the fact the girl makes it and all but ultimately it's pretty eh.

    tw/cw: blood
    eye scream
    child abuse mentioned
