    Brilliant. It had everything I love in one movie. I have a million thoughts in my head, which is totally fitting, but all I can think is: wow.

    ★★★

    I would’ve liked a bit more context to this story; it felt a tad underdeveloped. But not a bad home invasion film! (I mean the genre is terrifying to begin with so it’s definitely down to spook you). I just don’t think it’s particularly special beyond the idea that the main character is deaf which adds an interesting layer to the storyline.


    Also I’ve never even thought about how a person who is deaf would call 911 before watching this film.

  • The Ring

    The Ring

    ★★★★

    Incredibly well made. I think I might’ve seen this when I was younger because 2 or 3 scenes stood out to me as if I’d seen them before. The plot is so well crafted and the film lays all out in a way that makes sense and is satisfying. Also it’s refreshing to see a main character in a horror movie that is logical and smart and makes decisions that feel real rather than only serving the plot.

    Peachfuzz, baby. 
    But really, dang. This was weird and scary at times but mostly just freaky. I will definitely watch the sequel.

  • The Devil All the Time

    The Devil All the Time

    ★★★½

    Very solid adaptation. One of the few instances where I’d tell people to skip the book and just watch the film (sacrilege?). As with the book, my biggest problem was a lack of emotional connection to any of the characters, maybe because there’s so many of them and it ends up becoming more about how they’re connected than enforcing a connection with the audience. Nonetheless, great performances, really cool music & visuals. Definitely didn’t feel like 2 hours & 20 minutes. I wouldn’t have even minded it being a miniseries. Worth the watch!
