    Terrifier 2

    One day, I will write a review about how great Terrifier 2 is, how much heart, passion and care has been put into this project, and how Damien Leone is such a great independent filmmaker (along with Lauren LaVera and David Howard Thornton being so good in their performances).

    But today is unfortunately not that day, for I have come out of one of the most miserable theatrical experiences in my lifetime. It is a miracle that Terrifier 2 got…

    cw: suicide

    Smile isn't what you expected. It takes familiar inspirations from The Ring, It Follows, and maybe Truth or Dare, and while that's true to an extent, it takes those concepts to twisted, harrowing and surprisingly nihilistic lengths. Yes, it contains jump scares, albeit well-executed ones, and there's a sense of humour, which is intentionally morbid but never detracts from the experience. The seemingly laughable premise appears to be the basis for full-on midnight movie camp fare. Instead, Smile…

    Violent Night

    β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    Violent NightΒ lives up to its title thanks to its hyper-violent action set-pieces, commitment to over-the-top campiness and vulgarity, and some gnarly homages to Die Hard and Home AloneΒ yet underneath its surface, it has a surprisingly sincere heart at its centre.

    Its crude humour feels a little hit-and-miss and it’s hard to get invested in the characters or the narrative, especially making the first twenty minutes rough to watch. However, once Violent Night kicks things into gear, it satisfyingly sheds as…

    Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story

    β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    The exploitative nature of Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story feels inherently tied to its existence, especially since it brings further attention and spectacle to a disgusting serial killer whose actions took away lives, ruined families, and traumatised communities. What rubs me off about Dahmer - Monster is that it reopens the wounds these families went through and that they allegedly didn't receive profits from the production of this show makes me question its central intentions. Especially when its…

    Morbius

    β˜…Β½

    Sucks how much of a generic mess Morbius is, and yes, that pun was intended.

    After so many delays and re-shoots, not only is Morbius not worth the wait but it appears production issues play a massive role in influencing the state of its theatrical cut. Morbius feels like it's been hacked, cut up and re-shaped by a studio that's unsure how to integrate it into its cinematic universe plans, but a little more on that later. The possible groundwork…

    52 Years in 52 Weeks (2022 Edition)
    Year: 2022
    Progress: 6/52

    "It's not just a call. It's a warning."

    About as dark and good as Nolan's Batman trilogy, yet what makes Matt Reeves' vision of Batman necessary and compelling is at least his focus on the character's detective skills and an examination of his traumas, beliefs and responsibilities. The central mystery unfolds with Fincherian intrigue, taking influences from Se7en, Zodiac and even Saw (and thankfully feeling less Marvel-ish as a…
