• Insidious

    Insidious

    ★★★½

    Wan loves working with Wilson and Whannell so much because he is only concerned with W’s

    And Insidious is another W

  • The Last Duel

    The Last Duel

    ★★★★

    Although an absolute joy to immerse in, it wasn’t the big medieval action set pieces that impressed me most but the very slight deviations in all three chapters. Not the things you expect to see played out differently either, or the moments that are intentionally focused upon, but the very slight nuances - a glance, a word, a tone of voice - which add so much character and depth that even if you weren’t paying attention they would register subconsciously.…

  • The Conjuring

    The Conjuring

    ★★★★

    When James Wan initiates those flippy floppy camera moves I get butterflies in my stomach

    The Conjuring so gloriously charges at you with everything it’s got and is so committed to every single aspect that by the time ‘By the power of God, I condemn you back to Hell!’ comes roaring out of Patrick Wilson you just have to respect how everything that’s came before has definitely earned the right for such a cheesy line to land perfectly

    Fuuuuuuck forgot how good this was

    Just such a big flex how Scream manages to keep you on the edge of your seat after it literally explains all the twists to your face

  • Doctor Sleep

    Doctor Sleep

    ★★★★

    Was intrigued to see that Doctor Sleep had a director’s cut that stood at 3 hours long as this seemed really neatly strung together. It’s already a lengthy film, especially for a horror I feel, but it was paced really well which makes me wonder what was added to the other version

    Anyway, about this version. I’m glad it was a proper sequel, a true continuation of The Shiningverse and not just a rehash of a movie we’ve already seen.…

  • The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

    ★★★★½

    Does exactly what it says on the tin so can’t complain. There is a massacre, with a chainsaw, in Texas - splendid.

    Felt most of the horror and scares were really impactful as they seemed to play against horror tropes before those horror tropes were even horror tropes. The atmosphere rarely danced with suspense just for a fake out and the scares were mainly in the light and front facing. Efficient is probably how I’d best describe it, efficiently scary. Fear doesn’t have to be complicated to be effective

  • A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

    A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

    ★★★★½

    An enchanting and atmospheric voyage in which our nightly walker unleashes horror as an antithesis to terror. Where most of the tension stems from whether or not our main man has blurred too many lines as he strives to shake his monocular vision 

    And also vampire sk8er girl

  • Dawn of the Dead

    Dawn of the Dead

    ★★★★

    Oversaturated to the point you almost feel as sick as the vicious infected you’re watching. Filled with some carefully chosen slow motion and stupid character decisions - which feel right at home in the genre but are played out so well that you actually buy them. Over the top in the best way and lovably cheesy at times, the best from Zack Snyder so far

  • Before Midnight

    Before Midnight

    ★★★★★

    We step away from the fantastic escapism of the previous two movies and are given a strong dosage of reality. So much so that these characters sometimes don’t feel like the ones we’ve strolled with previously, mainly because they are dealing with a lot of problems that didn’t seem possible when we last saw them. We are 9 years later after all, the honeymoon stage is well and truly finished and things are are more difficult than before. But within…
