Penance Lane 2

Penance Lane (2020)

I’m gonna get us out of this. We’re gonna be okay.   “Penance Lane” is something for the fans of cheaply produced B-horror movies that don’t exactly excel when it comes to the storyline. I was actually very curious about this movie after reading the synopsis on IMDb. And the...

Big Legend 0

Big Legend (2018)

I don’t believe in fairy tales. Another film about the legendary Sasquatch, better known as Bigfoot. A few months ago I saw the film “Primal Rage” which I really could appreciate despite the low budget. And that because of the tension and the scarce moments of gore that were incorporated...

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...

Occupation (2018)

Film Review : Occupation I got out of worse situations than this. Been married three times. This must be the stupidest movie ever made about aliens who want to use our planet as a replacement. We already saw it happening in “War of the worlds” and “Independence Day“. But those...

Warning shot (2018)

Pacific Rim : Uprising (2018)

The Hurricane Heist (2018)

You’re underestimating her. I can smell it. Sometimes a person wonders why nonsense movies like “The Hurricane Heist” are being made. It’s a mixture of “American Heist” with “Into the Storm“. Actually, this disaster film (all aspects of this movie are kind of a disaster by the way) looks like...

Personal Shopper 0

Personal shopper (2016)
