I don’t remember why Wounds (2019) got added to my 2019 watch list, and I wish it wouldn’t have because I was lost most of the time. At points, I understood what they were getting at, but then it disappeared and never really came back. Armie Hammer and Dakota Johnson take on this mess like…

November 23, 2020

When Apparition (2019) began, I thought I was watching the wrong movie because the events in the first third of the movie aren’t what the description told me. I didn’t mind though because I liked what I was seeing as brutal as it was, and the craziness of the mom going nuts was freaky and…

Jack in the Box
November 9, 2020

The Jack in the Box (2019) was a last-minute addition to my 2019 watch list that appeared to have something to offer that was different from all the blandness that I had experienced that year. When it finally became included in Prime, I decided to watch it and see if I’d suffer more disappointment. The…

Play or Die
November 2, 2020

I found Play or Die (2019) in the neverending list of OnDemand choices. I’d never heard of it but had an idea of what it was about, a mix of Saw and Escape Room. It’s based on the novel Puzzle by Franck Thilliez and was directed and co-written by Jacques Kluger. It begins with an…

October 30, 2020

I did not know about Housewife (2017) until it showed up on Shudder, so I figured ‘why not?’. Can Evrenol directed and co-wrote it. They filmed the movie in Istanbul, Turkey; Can directed Baskin (2015), which I haven’t reviewed but liked (maybe, I’ll have to watch it again and do a write-up.) The special effects…

The Shed
October 27, 2020

The Shed (2019) starts out very strong with a man being stalked in the woods by a Vampire (and not a pretty, sparkly one either, thank the celluloid gods), then after the introduction, I found myself in Stan’s depressing reality. I wasn’t sure how long the teenage drama and unhappy life of Stan was going…

House of the Witch
October 25, 2020

House of the Witch (2017) surprised me for getting to it rather quickly since many horror films from the last decade took their sweet time and when it came to the climax I was already spent. It felt like it wished it was made in the 80s with a few slices of cheese thrown around….

They're Inside
October 12, 2020

I knew They’re Inside (2019) was a copy of sorts of The Strangers (2008) before I watched it, which probably should’ve deterred me, but I hoped for the best. I thought “found footage” films were over in 2015, it turns out I was wrong. And true to many films like this, it has “real” acting…
