Sometimes I come across a horror movie that has an unexpected genuine sweetness, and Wilding (2018) is one of those films. I know it seems strange for that to occur in horror, but the scenes where Anna is learning about the world are just that. The strangeness of her being locked in the attic made…

Anthology movies are strange for me, but I do enjoy them, most of the time; The Twilight Zone movie was awesome.
