He’s out there (2018)

Daddy can see us…when he gets here. But he’s already here. Do you fancy a movie along the lines of “Hush” but with people who aren’t mute? In short, a film in which there’s a lot of screaming. And should there be co-stars who are simply mown down with a wicked-looking ax as in every “Friday the 13th” episode? Then...

Pyewacket (2017)

I call upon you, brought by leaves and seeds. Hear with my ears and speak with my tongue. I invite you to come. Pyewacket. If you’ve already read one of my reviews, you’d know I enjoy a low-budget, independent film occasionally. A film where you already know in advance that the special effects won’t be mindblowing. And also, mostly unknown...

Mara (2018)

Whatever you do, do NOT sleep! Having problems falling asleep at night? Are you tossing and turning in bed all night? Or are frightening nightmares disturbing your well-deserved sleep? Well, in that case, I advise you not to watch “Mara“, because it could possibly get worse. Now, I myself have absolutely no problems with that and always enjoy a carefree...

The night eats the World (2018)

The hardest part is… not knowing what’s happened to them. If there’s one horror genre that pops up ad nauseam, it’s that of zombies. Not a month goes by without a release in which undeath feast on innocent non-infected fellow humans. Since the cult film “Night of the Living Dead” by George A. Romero, a countless number of zombie flicks...

A quiet place (2018)

Who are we? We can’t protect them. For me, “Upgrade” deserves the title “Best SF of the Year“. And unhesitatingly I call “A quiet place” the best horror of 2018. Even though it’s more Science-fiction than horror per se. I’ve been watching horror movies all my life and have already finished a whole list. Frankly, I was terrified of creeps...

Don’t hang up (2016)

Maybe it’s time for someone like me… to come over there and wipe that smug grin off your face. You know what’s fun sometimes? Haphazardly starting a film without knowing what it is about and afterward admitting you were pleasantly surprised. That’s my experience with this film. A film with a bit of suspense and tension. And thanks to the...

The Hollow Child (2017)

Run before it turns everyone against you. The reason why I try to avoid seeing trailers is twofold. Or they are so revealing that you actually saw the film in advance. Either the trailer is inviting and arouses your curiosity, but afterward, you come to the conclusion they better limited themselves to making this trailer alone. Better yet. Perhaps they...

Who’s watching Oliver (2017)

“Who’s watching Oliver” will certainly not be appreciated by everyone. It’s a film about voyeurism, sadism and total insanity. At first sight, the film seems meaningless in terms of content. But as the film progresses, you’ll conclude it contains a more pronounced message. The moment Oliver (Russell Geoffrey Banks) begins to abuse and torture a girl like a madman, under...

Don't knock twice 0

Don’t knock twice (2016)

“Once to wake her from her bed. Twice to raise her from the dead. If you knock on her door, she still hears it. Sooner or later she comes knockin’ for you.” The movie “Don’t knock twice” should be a must watch for the mischiefs who like to play “Ding Dong Ditch”. Maybe this frightening legend will make them think...

The Ritual 0

The Ritual (2017)

“He was a good man. The best of us. It should never have happened. But it did… And all we can do is remember him. Robert, we miss you, mate.” “The Ritual” is a British horror that takes place in a Swedish forest where four friends go on a hike in honor of a deceased friend. After seeing so many...

Better watch out (2017)

“I am not drunk and I am not a kiddo. You’re 12. Thirteen in a few weeks. I’m mature for my age. I know. If I were your age, I’d date you.” Believe it or not, I found this “Home Alone” slasher version reasonably amusing. If you think this is the umpteenth horror with a home invasion as a subject,...

Jigsaw (2017)

“Salvation can be yours, if you cleanse yourselves of the habitual lies which have brought you here. Lies that you have told yourselves, lies that have brutalized others. Confess. The truth will set you free.” When watching a YouTube video where a baseball hits someone with a dizzying speed right in the spot that’s used to take care of having...

Happy Death Day 0

Happy death day (2017)

My opinion on “Happy death day” “I’m totally having deja vu right now. Oh, I have it all the time. It’s supposed to mean like someone’s thinking about you while they’re masturbating. I have it at least five times a day.” You can’t really say “Happy death day” is original. You’ll immediately think of films as “Groundhog Day” and recently...

Devil's Gate 1

Devil’s Gate (2017)

“You both need to clear off my property, or as god is my witness I will not be responsible for what happens! Colt, If she goes in there Maria and Jonah are as good as dead.” An onrushing hot rod that suddenly breaks down near an awful looking, abandoned farm with lots of barbed wire and warning signs. There are...

Mom and Dad (2017)

My opinion on “Mom and Dad” “I mean, I used to be Brent… and you used to be Kendall… and now we’re just… Mom and Dad.” I’m sure some parents will experience it in their life. The moment you get a bit tired of your offspring. That you would love to put them on a rocket and shoot them to...

We go on (2016)
