Starting a film with a tragedy is a good way to endear the leading roles to the audience, and Isabelle (2019) gives a full-throttle effort to do that. The scene was sad and melancholy, and does begin the story with a bang, opening the path for a possession that could’ve been so much better. With…

Horror in 2019 has had quite the array of movies so far. I haven’t seen everything that’s been released this year, and probably won’t, I just hope that the others from this year that I do see are as good as The Prodigy (2019). I know I’ve been complaining a lot lately about horror-light, and…

Chinese, Japanese, Dirty Knees, Look at these. “Baby” Firefly I loved Rob Zombie’s 2003 House of 1000 Corpses, and this sequel kept me just as intrigued and delighted.
