Cadaver (2020) is one of those movies that kept me entertained throughout, wondering what would happen next. It begins with a strange scene of children going through heaps of clothing in a hotel, and then it took me outside to an apparent post-apocalyptic/dystopian world with dead littering the streets. When a carnie appearing man invites…

Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight (2020) is a German horror film with English overdubs for us that only know one language. Netflix has been finding an amazing collection of films that I normally wouldn’t have seen or probably known about and this is a great addition to my favorite horror movies. Of course, I’m…

Don’t Listen (2020), originally titled Voces, is the “it” horror movie that is all the rage on Netflix right now. It revolves around a family that buys, remodels, then sells houses in Spain. Young Eric doesn’t like the house, and they call in a therapist to try to figure out why he isn’t sleeping. Eric…

Brahms: The Boy II (2020) being a sequel, I wasn’t sure what to expect, including whether it would be good or not. To my surprise and relief, it wasn’t just a regurgitation of The Boy (2016). It begins with a family who goes to a house in the country after a traumatic home invasion that…

Gretel & Hansel (2020) is a movie that quickly moved to a pay television channel; I’m sure some would blame COVID-19 for it, but I wouldn’t be too quick to place the blame there, some movies just don’t make it. That being said, I’m not sure what happened with this one, the trailer gives a…

I’m not sure what I expected when turned on Books of Blood (2020), maybe something miraculous that included The Madonna for a change, but that’s not what I got. When I hear Books of Blood, I desire to be frightened at least or wince once or twice. Again, that’s not what I got. At least…

The Binding
October 19, 2020

The Binding (2020) (Il Legame in Italian) is a masterful cinematic delight. It begins with a brutal ritual followed by Italian text giving a brief history of binding; thank the celluloid gods there were English subtitles. That out of the way, they jump to the present with a couple and a child going to a…

Fantasy Island
September 21, 2020

Fantasy Island (2020) is a remake of sorts of the 1978 TV series of the same name. If anything it’s a prequel, which is fine, I guess, but the TV series is much better. But I’m not saying that was great either. Another reason why I’m not sure they bothered. I’m not really sure what…
