• Rust Creek

    Rust Creek

    ★★★

    What ultimately failed here was the repeating dumb movie logic. The characters did unbelievably stupid things and I facepalmed at least a few times. But that aside, it was entertaining to watch and had some scenes that made me a bit nervous. I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend it, but it wasn't bad, either.

  • The Cave

    The Cave

    ★★★

    Not bad. Water (or underwater) horror is always my shit. The camera work in some parts was so wacky that it was hard to understand what was happening. I kind of get the intent behind that, but it didn't always work. I was also annoyed at how the characters were walking around in light clothing in such a situation. Other than that, the cast was pretty decent. This had a few similarities to The Descent, like the other reviews have pointed out, but it was completely different in tone (and quality, too).

  • Last Night in Soho

    Last Night in Soho

    ★★★★

    I enjoyed it a lot and even despite some parts being totally wacky. The parts that were supposed to be scary (I assume) unfortunately weren't, and that's my biggest problem here. Other than that, it had good characters that I cared about. The story wasn't anything new and it didn't say anything groundbreaking, but it was still gripping and fun to watch.

  • Final Destination 2

    Final Destination 2

    ★★★

    This had some cool moments (man, the opening accident), but generally it didn't feel as fulfilling as I'd like it to. The third act was a dud for me. Even the cast of characters wasn't as good as in the previous movies. It's still a fine one, but I'm not crazy about it.

  • Spencer

    Spencer

    ★★½

    I'm not going to pretend that I liked this because it's highly rated by the critics or whatever. It was so artificial and obnoxious, I just couldn't bear it. In stories like that, the human side of the story is the most important. This, however, just seemed so fake. Every dialogue and conversation was unnatural and it almost drove me mad at the beginning. The third act was the most acceptable, and that's maybe just because I got used to the style at the end. It's a no, thanks from me.

  • Final Destination 3

    Final Destination 3

    ★★★★

    There's something about the gloomy atmosphere of this one that really gets me. The two main characters are so endearing and I was rooting for them the whole time. The ending wasn't as good as the rest of the movie, unfortunately, but it was still an amazing ride (bad pun intended).

  • When a Stranger Calls

    When a Stranger Calls

    ★★★½

    The 2000s horror flick vibe here was so good. Fun and creepy at the same time, maybe a bit too slow at first, but I didn't even mind. I wish I'd watched this as a kid, it would have scared me so much.

  • You're Next

    You're Next

    ★★★½

    Not as good on a second watch, but still really fun. The premise is totally my type of thing, so I can't complain too much.

  • The Frighteners

    The Frighteners

    ★★★

    This has to be one of the most bonkers things I've ever watched. I just can't believe someone came up with this plot and made a whole movie about it. It was enjoyable to watch, pretty innocent and funny at first, then developing into something much more sinister and ridiculous (if that was even possible). The characters were a bit annoying and made some stupid choices, but I guess that's obvious with a story like that. It's not a pure horror movie, it was more like a mix of many genres and weird ideas.

  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★★★

    As many reviewers have already pointed out, this is definitely a part one, the first entry in a bigger series. And even with that in mind, it was still a good, valuable experience. Obviously it was beautiful visually, the music was great. The characters were a pretty strong point. I didn't love the plot, though. The pacing was a bit off, with the beginning being on the slower side. I enjoyed it much more when it finally got going in the seconf half. Even then the story was predictable, but the ride was fun enough. I will definitely see the second part whenever it comes out.

  • Friday the 13th Part 2

    Friday the 13th Part 2

    ★★★½

    I liked it more than the first movie. The third act was so good, definitely the best part once again. The cast of characters was more vibrant this time, too, and the final girl is definitely more memorable than the previous one. Jason's shrine for his mother was so metal. Good time.

  • Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight

    Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight

    ★★★½

    So grim and disturbing. There were like two scenes that got an audible gasp out of me. The characters were really nice, especially for a teen camp slasher. I was expecting some obnoxious kids who were clearly written by someone who has no idea how young people work, but thankfully that wasn't the case. The killers' design was one of the most impressive aspects of the movie. The music was great, too. One thing that didn't work for me was…
