Escape Room

Escape Room (2017) is the first of two movies with the same name released in September 2017; the other had Evan Williams, while the one I saw had Skeet Ulrich. From what I got from watching the trailers for both, they are essentially the same movie. When I first started watching the film, I was…

Just because a movie has an exciting poster doesn’t mean it’s going to be good. Darkness Rising (2017) that looks good on the surface with a poster that caught my attention, too bad it didn’t hold my interest; it wasn’t like I had anything else to do on a Sunday. It had creepy moments like…

I assumed that Behind the Walls (2018) was another run-of-the-mill haunted house film with ghosts that go bump in the night and strange happenings. Obviously, it was that, but it was more than that. This was unexpected, though a little hard to follow. Kathy Harper, who is on the run from her husband (or so…

Survival films can be predictable and blasé but VFW (2020) is not one of those films; though the way it was set up at the beginning, I knew there was going to be a confrontation at the VFW (hence the name). The cast is a great mix of talent, including Fred Parras and George Wendt….

The Platform (2019) is a socially charged horror film (something I usually don’t like) that intrigued me. The first thing that popped into my mind as it started was ‘what are they cooking with?’ and I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t people, though cannibalism does show itself. The 99% movement came to mind…

The Influence (2019) has a Gothic horror style that drew me in from the minute the family stepped foot on set. The house is super creepy and unforgettable with classic haunted house decor. The only actress I recognized is Claudia Placer, who played Irene in Verónica (2017) and is Sara in this one. She is…
