    Old

    The concept is silly, as a lot of people have pointed out. It's been mocked to death, especially when this movie came out, but there is some aspects that I do honestly really like. The perspective shown from the kids later on in the film where they talk about growing up so suddenly and not having important memories is a concept that I honestly find a lot of connection to. When you're young and go through an incredibly traumatic event,…

  • Halloween Kills

    Halloween Kills

    a horrendously mean film. while halloween 2018 was absolutely fighting against generational trauma and overpowering it, halloween kills takes an approach to say that your trauma will always come back to hurt you no matter what you do. every kill here is insanely brutal, which is not a bad thing inherently, but when every kill is either a likable character, someone who survived michael from the original or just a horribly trusted minority and you relish in the blood and…

  • The Empty Man

    The Empty Man

    ★★★★

    the production story of david prior's the empty man is one of confidence and pain. a first time director given a studio backing to make a horror film in the way that he wanted is the absolute dream, but when the fox-disney merger happened, it got swept up and washed down the drain.  because  the preview cuts that disney made did even more poorly compared to when the current release of the film was shown, it dumped into theaters in winter 2020,…

    Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    ★★★★★

    what makes venom 2 work beyond the chemistry and homoeroticism of eddie and venom is how delightfully unhinged and menacing the movie can be sometimes. carnage adds a real threat to the movie that makes a lot of the scenes with him so much more intense, from his escape scene to the fight scene at the end. it's fresh, fast and exciting and i couldn't be happier with this movie

  • Possession

    Possession

    ★★★★★

    Possession is just a hazy, never ending nightmare. It starts with a breakup and progressively gets more unhinged and distressing from there.  The camera is always moving, and the sound design is unnerving, giving this movie an anxiety-inducing atmosphere right off the bat. It's a swirling, ecstasy infused storm of a film, terrifying and stressful, loaded with so much symbolism and metaphors and is interested in nothing but the monsters and demons within us and around us, metaphorical and literal.…

  • Sinister

    Sinister

    ★★★

    an aesthetic nightmare but a storytelling slog, sinister is a movie that lives up to its namesake. some of the most well executed scares in recent horror memory, on top of visuals and audio design that makes my blood run cold.

  • Malignant

    Malignant

    ★★★★

    absolutely sick, disgusting and gnarly. went into this completely blind and it had me gasping for breath. one of the most buckwild studio releases in a long time, straight up plays like a modern day giallo. incredible camera work and score, some of the best of the year in both accounts. there's so much here to talk about but i won't right now. go in as blind as you can.

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    visually striking, filled with emotional storytelling and some of the best action scenes i've seen in a while. i'm so happy i revisited this film and gave it the respect that it so much deserves. i never wanted this movie to end. what a lovely day.
