The Silence (2019)

Film Review : The Silence What the hell does that mean? “Don’t make noise.” There are still certainties in this world. First of all, you can expect that if a type of movie has enormous success, something similar will appear in no time. A matter of surfing on the wave...

Us (2019)

Film Review : Us Jeremiah 11:11 Therefore thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them. “Get out” was a big nod to the racist past (and...

Primal Rage: The Legend of Konga (2018)

Film Review : Primal Rage So you’re telling me right here, right now to my face, that you actually believe there’s an Oh-Mah out there? Admittedly, “Primal Rage” certainly won’t win the prize for the most original film. And there are some pain points to be found in this B-film....

Wildling (2018)

Film Review : Wildling Do you want to hear a story? Do you want me to tell you about the Wildling? “Wildling” is a peculiar film. It’s hard to put a specific label on it. One moment it feels like a teenage movie about a freshly emerging love. On the...

What keeps you Alive (2018)

Film Review : What keeps you Alive She fell off a cliff. 911, my wife, she fell off a cliff. Oh, my God! Please help me. Some marriages fail because married people come to realize that their interests are different or because there are too many contradictions that lead to...

Guest Blog : Climax (2018)

By, Darren Arnold, Film Critic During the past 20 years, Gaspar Noé has made just five feature films.  Climax – which has recently been released on DVD and Blu-ray – appeared after the shortest gap in his filmography, following his 2015 3D feature Love.  The list of people you could...

Velvet Buzzsaw (2019)

Critique is so limiting and emotionally draining. I’ve always wanted to do something long-form, beyond opinion. Dip my toe into an exploration of origin and essence. A metamorphosis of spirit into reality. I’ve… I’ve never had the vehicle until now. Regularly I’m asked to watch a low-budget film and to...

Halloween (2018)

He’s no longer dormant. He only knows how to keep moving and to keep killing. And he will kill again unless he’s captured. Exactly 40 years ago the film “Halloween“, directed by John Carpenter, was released. A milestone in the slasher genre. It was in this film that Laurie Strode...

Charismata (2017)

Even if you never had to learn police work like the rest of us plebs, anybody with a TV knows that it takes three bodies to make a serial killer. You know what I’m saying, you’re just being pedantic. Take the brilliant movie “Se7en” and replace the two inspectors Somerset...

Overlord (2018)

The German doctor, he believes the tar in the ground has some kind of a power. He calls it his science. But it’s just an excuse to kill us. When I watched the movie “Trench 11” at the end of last year, I already said this might be the cheaper...

Incident in a Ghostland (2018)

Jesus Christ. It’s Rob Zombie’s house. They came up with the following slogans for “Hereditary“: “The scariest film ever” and “A highlight in horror in the last 50 years“. Well, I wonder what they would say about “Incident in a Ghostland“? I won’t say this is the most masterful horror...

Hereditary (2018)

If you could have just said, “I’m sorry”, or faced up to what happened. Maybe then we could do something with this. But you can’t take responsibility for anything! So now I can’t accept… And I can’t forgive because… Because nobody admits anything they’ve done! “Hereditary“. A film I was...

Boar (2017)

Either I’m pissed off my chest mate, or that’s the biggest fucking boar I’ve ever seen. In 1955 we had a giant octopus in “It came from beneath the Sea” and last year we had the giant shark in “The Meg“. And in between, we were treated to a manifold...

Mermaid’s song (2018)

Her story begins where the fairy tale ends. I suppose this movie was inspired by the well-known fairy tale “The Little Mermaid” by Christian-Andersen. Now, if you were an attentive reader, you’d noticed that this little sea-dweller was explicitly present throughout the whole story. If this film is a kind...

Cargo (2017)

We have no idea what it was that bit you. It had fingers, Andy! Fuck! If there’s one genre with so many releases that you get tired of it, it’s certainly the zombie genre. I’m sure this kind of movies is made on a daily basis. Movies in which infected...

Bird Box (2018)

You never, ever take off your blindfold. If you look, you will die. Do you understand? Each year ends with a bang. You’ll have the end-of-year festivities and people party themselves into the new year. But when it’s about movies, this one created an end-of-a-filmyear-bang. Frankly, I didn’t expect too...

Suspiria (2018)

By, Darren Arnold, Film Critic Moordvrouw star Renée Soutendijk is back on the big screen in this lavish, controversial remake of Dario Argento’s classic 70s horror.  The past few years may have seen Soutendijk become a fixture on RTL 4, but recently both the Amsterdam-born actress and her Moordvrouw co-star...

Slender Man (2018)

Those who hear the three bells toll, accept his invitation. When you hear the first, you must close your eyes, keeping words unspoken. If one wants to hear, you must listen closely, for they are soft and distant. I was really curious about this movie. Not that I expected anything...

Apostle (2018)

These people… they’re blasphemers… a cult, a disease. Be careful. Be smart. Bring her home. The first thing that came to my mind while watching “Apostle“, was the movie “The Witch“. It takes place in the same time period. Here, too, an old-fashioned sounding English is spoken. And it’s also...

Lake Placid: Legacy (2018)

You people are out of your minds. The place you wanna go? It’s off-limits. This is really the most miserable film I’ve seen this year. Not only the story was totally stupid and completely absurd. Also, the acting was sometimes extremely bad. I’m sure there are local theater associations who...

Los Olvidados (2017)

Epecuen looks like the scene from a movie. A horror movie… The Onetti brothers could have made it easy on themselves by dubbing the movie “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” to an Argentine version. Because to be honest, this movie “Los Olvidados” is almost a perfect copy of this legendary film....

Flora (2017)

Rudyard, there are no people living in this forest. Do you see any animals? There’s no flora with any color, nothing to allure insects! Are you someone who prefers to spend his free time in his perfectly tended garden? Is your lawn as if a delegation from the International Golf...

Mandy (2018)

By, Darren Arnold, Film Critic So, what you huntin’? Jesus freaks. I didn’t know they were in season, man. In “Rambo II” and “Cobra“, George Pan Cosmatos directed two Sylvester Stallone films which could hardly be more 80s; these movies stand as two of the more memorable examples from that...

Trench 11 (2017)

The air is moving. Fritz left a door open somewhere. Did the creators of “Trench 11” know that the film “Overlord” is going to be released this autumn? Or did they want to beat film studio “The Asylum” and be the first one to deliver a low-budget horror in which...
