The Sonata (2018)

Rose, you do know if this is your father’s final work, it could be a huge sensation. Yes, well, that much had occurred to me. And if this score was more important to him than I was, I’d like to know why.   Do you like a dash of classical...

Guest Blog : Angel Heart (1987)

By, James Morris, UK Today I’m reviewing the cult classic and controversial film “Angel Heart“. For those who are a film noir or an occult fan, this film ticks all the boxes. Let’s start with the main roles. Two of Hollywood’s heavyweights: Robert De Niro and Mickey Rourke. Personally I...

The Boonies (2019)

“The Boonies“. You would think it’s a parody of “The Goonies“. Partially it is. Here it’s also about a hidden treasure (a briefcase with $ 1,164,000) which Doug (Calum Worthy) has hidden somewhere at “Boone High School”. A kind of quest devised by him after he died in a terrible...

In the Shadow of the Moon (2019)

If you kill me now… the world as you know it will end in a very short time. Yeah. Once again a movie about time traveling. Always interesting to see how they incorporated the paradox of time travel. And there’s always going to be someone who claims something isn’t right....

A dark Place 0

Quick review : A Dark Place (2018)

Getting the job done the easy way, is like running away from the problem. Because dealing with the problem is… It takes hard work.   I have a preference for the more unknown movies that are released weekly. The indie film world is lively and inexhaustible. The sad thing is...

Greta (2018)

I have been in this well of loneliness, this black hole. Maybe it drove me a little mad. We were meant for love, Frances, not this terrible isolation. If you see the film “Greta” pass by on your favorite streaming platform or on some VOD network service, it’s certainly not...

Pet Sematary (2019)

A place to bury our pets and remember them. It might seem scary, but it’s not. It’s perfectly natural. In the distant past, I was an avid reader and devoured books constantly. That has been considerably reduced over the years. But, occasionally I grab a reading book. Generally, that only...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Bad Times at the El Royale (2018)

The El Royale is a bi-state establishment. You have the option to stay in either the great state of California… or the great state of Nevada. Warmth and sunshine to the west… or hope and opportunity to the east. Which would you prefer? Let me get straight to the point....

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...

Await Further Instructions (2018)

I don’t think the messages are a government broadcast. It’s almost like they’re reacting to what we do. Initially, I would immediately add “Await further instructions” to the list of “useless movies that only ensure that you don’t start running into the walls out of boredom”. But on the other...

Personal Shopper 0

Personal shopper (2016)

For me, Lewis was someone deeply intuitive of others. He understood things that went unspoken. Maybe because he knew he was going to die. Are you suffering from a sleep disorder lately so you always get up with giant bags under your eyes? Or are you hyperkinetic due to an...

Murder on the Orient Express (2017)

“My name is Hercule Poirot and I am probably the greatest detective in the world.” Voila. We Belgians can also be proud of the Hercule Poirot phenomenon in addition to our world-famous beers and chocolate. Probably the best detective in the world. And yes, he comes from this tiny country...
