    The Silence

    ★★

    Mmmmmm......so 'The Silence'.
    John R. Leonetti who has given us such cinematic treasures as 'Mortal Kombat: Annihilation' (1997) and 'The Butterfly Effect 2' (2006) now brings us a Netflix horror.
    After a cave research team dig too deep they unleash flesh-eating flying critters that sort of look like the Xenos from 'Alien' made love to bats and start eating everyone everywhere. They can be evaded though but only if you maintain.......The Silence.

    Shazam!

    ★★★

    Warner Brothers continue their battle to wrestle some of the superhero box office supremacy away from Disney's dominant Marvel studios via this latest offering from the DC Universe.

    Happy Death Day 2U

    ★★★

    Christopher Landon's quickfire sequel to 'Happy Death Day' (2017) sees Jessica Rothe return to her role as the college queen bee Tree Gelbman who is perennially trapped in a 'Groundhog Day' esque nightmare scenario where she is murdered over and over again.
    This time we get to the bottom of why it all happened in the first place as well begun again and it turns out that it was all the work of her new boyfriend Carter Davis's (Israel Broussard)…
