  • The Blazing World

    The Blazing World

    ★★★★★

    My most anticipated from the festival, and definitely one of my favorites. Carlson Young brings us to a world similar to Alice in Wonderland and any work of David Lynch, and does so in an ambitious way. I genuinely had a great time with this, and I believe that this is an extremely solid and quite stunning directorial debut. The Blazing World is an impressive and stand-out take on mental health and self-destruction after trauma, and I'm looking forward to see what stories she has to tell in the future.

    Euphoria: Trouble Don't Last Always

    ★★★★★

    Not only did this episode bring back the hype for Euphoria, but it opened up some very important discussions and was able to play around with a new pace and style before the second season arrives. I'm amazed by the performances here, and how invested I was watching Rue and Ali bounce dialogue between each other. So excited for Part 2.

    New Nightmare

    ★★★★★

    New Nightmare is Wes Craven's love letter (and think piece on life after making) his 1984 slasher A Nightmare on Elm Street, and works in more ways than one as a prototype for his next mega hit Scream. This film blows me away at just how well it works as a spinoff to the franchise; it's a fun meta sequel that brings Freddy Krueger to the real world in order to terrorize the people who worked on the original, and it does so flawlessly. Genius, and easily the best of the bunch.

  • Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare

    Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare

    ★★★½

    Freddy's Dead is a very distant NOES sequel that manages to end the franchise on a fun note. The group here is small but entertaining, four new teens and a doctor who has familial ties reminiscent of Jason Voorhees' random half-sister and niece in Jason Goes to Hell. This jumps ten years forward to a Springwood without children, where the adults have lost their minds, setting up for an interesting time when we finally enter the town. Loved how campy it was, with the random 3D final act, and Freddy's goofiest nightmare game of them all. So good.

  • Scream 4

    Scream 4

    ★★★★★

    Today is the 10th anniversary of the wide release of Scream 4, and with that, it's a day of celebration. Being Wes Craven's final film, it ended his career on a high note; the cast and crew showed a ton of growth in their talent since the first film, something that feels rare in the horror genre due to the lack of consistency within different major franchises. I first saw this at the end of third grade, on opening night…

    Scream 2

    ★★★★★

    Bitter Sweet Symphony would've been such a fitting ending song for this one & I won't rest until I see an edit of it that way. Horror masterpiece in every way.
