    ★★★★★

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

    “They’re all going to laugh at you!”

    Whilst there’s a distracting performance from John Travolta and some unsettling examples of the male gaze (a staple of De Palma), I have decided to up this to five stars because fuck it.

    This movie is a damn near masterpiece, led by a powerhouse performance from Sissy Spacek (who was somehow 28 when she filmed this despite looking the youngest out of the entire cast).  Spacek brings a vulnerability to Carrie, a quiet…

    Dead Poets Society

    ★★★★½

    "Oh Captain, my Captain!"

    This review discusses homophobia, emotional abuse and suicide, so if you're sensitive to those topics, I would recommend maybe shying away.

    Ever since I've started reviewing movies here on Letterboxd, I've cometo somewhat of a realisation; I cry way too easily when watching good, or sometimes not-so-good, but still emotional, movies.

    I've been recommended Dead Poets Society a number of times now from mutuals on my Twitter, but never really got around to watching because I…

    ★★★★

    “Feed me!”

    The Little Shop of Horrors is a 1960 American horror comedy film directed by Roger Corman which follows an inadequate florist's assistant who cultivates a plant that feeds on human blood. 

    As someone who adores the 1986 musical remake of The Little Shop of Horrors, I’ll admit I was a tiny bit worried that I would dislike this original version.

    Fortunately, whilst it’s still not as fantastic as it’s remake, The Little Shop of Horrors is a lot…

    Caveat

    ★★★

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

    “You'll pay me 200, just to go out and spend the day with her? There must be more to it than that."

    Caveat is a 2021 Irish horror film directed by Damian McCarthy which follows a lone drifter suffering from partial memory loss who accepts a job to look after a psychologically troubled woman in an abandoned house on an isolated island.

    Atmospheric and tense, I’ll admit that Caveat has its very strong moments, but equally does have its slower,…

    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    ★★★★

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

    “I think I hurt someone.”

    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is a 2021 American supernatural horror film directed by Michael Chaves and is the eight film in the Conjuring Universe.  It follows the trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, a murder trial that took place in 1981 Connecticut.

    The third Conjuring film was one I wasn’t keeping my expectations high for.  I’m not the biggest fan of this universe outside the main films and the thought of one…

    Spiral: From the Book of Saw

    ★★★★

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

    “You wanna play games, motherfucker? Alright.”

    Spiral: From the Book of Saw is a 2021 American horror film directed by Darren Lynn Bousman and is the ninth entry in the Saw franchise.  It follows police efforts to stop a Jigsaw copycat killer. 

    My first film back on the big screen and it feels somewhat fitting that it’s a film from a franchise I have such an endearment for.

    Spiral follows the only two entries in the franchise I don’t personally…
