The Perfection 0

The Perfection (2018)

All that time with Anton, the practice, the performances, the pressure to be perfect.   Whenever I read newsflashes about films that make people suffer from migraine attacks and even make them sick, my curiosity is immediately awakened. The final verdict can go two ways. Or the film indeed has...

Grand Isle 0

Grand Isle (2019)

Go ahead and take her. She’s all yours. But I’ll tell you this. She got a dark side… Darker than hell.   I admire the phenomenon called Nicolas Cage enormously. Every film with him (and nowadays it’s a lot every year) is a mandatory watch for me. I really can’t...

Uncut Gems 0

Uncut Gems (2019)

That’s a million dollar opal you are holding. Straight from the Ethiopian Jewish tribe.   Are you in the middle of a nasty divorce? Or are you at home on sick leave because of burnout due to your stressful job that demands too much from you? Or are those two...

The Sonata 0

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...

Cold Blood Legacy 0

Cold Blood Legacy (2019)

I had a stand-off with a wolf earlier, and he has tasted human blood… yours.   Jean Reno. The ever-calm actor is usually associated with roles such as a police detective, a gangster or an assassin. The quiet-looking Frenchman has a specific appearance that fits perfectly with such roles. Strange...

The Prodigy 0

The Prodigy (2019)

You took my son’s soul… you can’t have his body   Murderous children or those possessed by dark forces appear in horror movies on a regularly base. Sometimes it’s a diabolical power that possesses them. Damien from “The Omen” and Regan in “The Exorcist” are good examples. Or it’s the...

Joker 0

Joker (2019)

I just hope my death makes more cents than my life. Weltschmerz. Despair. Grief. Desperation. Those are the keywords that came to mind after watching this movie. If you are a superhero film fan and you expect heroic confrontations between this crazy clown and our bats-related superhero in a tight...

Angel heart 0

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...

(thunder rumbling) (wind whooshing) (hammock creaking) (thunder cracks) (creature huffing) (creature snorting) (creature chittering) (cries out) (creature growls) (screaming) (creature growling) (thunder cracks) (panting) (roars) (screams) (grunts) (creature hissing) (growls) (thunder cracks) (creature roars) (thunder rumbling)   Let me first make a comment before I start spitting my opinion about...

Lucky Day 0

Lucky Day (2019)

Purpose for coming to the United States, Mr. Chaltiel? Uh… Business… Pleasure… Well, which one is it? A little bit of both. I take pleasure in my business.   These days it’s kind of hype to create reboots or remakes of films from a bygone era. Even though I hate...

Low Tide 0

Low Tide (2019)

Eight, nine, ten. A thousand. You boys find any more coins, give me a holler. Once and a while I like to watch a well-made coming-of-age movie. Such a film about juvenile innocence in which a radical event shakes the pleasant life of one or more young people. A life...

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark 0

Scary Stories to tell in The Dark (2019)

You don’t read the book. The book reads you. A few years ago there was already the movie “Goosebumps“, based on the stories of R.L. Stine, with the not so funny Jack Black. The only thing I can remember about this film is that an immense amount of figures from...

Look Away 0

Look away (2018)

I’m everywhere where you are. Whenever you see yourself, what you really see is me. There are large numbers of films in which mirrors play a crucial role. Just think of “Mirrors“, “Oculus” and “Candyman“. And when someone is standing in front of a mirror in a horror movie, you...

Asher 0

Asher (2018)

I just killed a man in the bathroom, and I’m afraid if we don’t leave right now, they’re gonna call the cops. Hmm. So it’s true. What’s that? Men will say anything for sex. A hitman who, by chance, encounters a lovely dance teacher and realizes that it’s time to...

Rock, Paper, Scissors 0

Rock, Paper, Scissors (2017)

I just wanna look and fiddle a little bit. Fiddle and touch. Every year there’s such a film of which you say “Man, this is probably the worst film I’ve seen this year!“. For me, it’s the movie “Rock, Paper, Scissors” that takes all the glory. With Tom Holland as...

12 Feet Deep 0

12 Feet Deep (2017)

Are you dense? Everyone’s left. The pool’s closed for the holiday weekend. We’re stuck in here. We’re gonna die in here. I hope this isn’t going to be a new trend, otherwise more movies of this type will appear in the future. Like, “For a Few Degrees More.” with a...

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 0

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 0

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...

Pledge 0

Pledge (2018)

Do I tuck my shirt in? I don’t care, you look like you’re gonna fix the computer anyway. This straightforward movie “Pledge” managed to surprise me. At first, I didn’t expect much from it. But as the story unfolded, I thought that the makers of this horror story had incorporated...

Bullitt County 0

Bullitt County (2018)

Anything buried out there, is meant to stay buried. “Bullitt County” isn’t really an easy film. To be honest, I had to control myself not to give up after half an hour. It wasn’t very exciting, so to say. On the contrary. It was painfully slow and meaningless. The story...

Ánimas 0

Ánimas (2018)

When you’re five, it’s normal to have imaginary friends… But at my age, it means you’re crazy. “Ánimas” certainly isn’t an easy film. It also takes a while before you realize what’s actually going on. The film looks enormously artistic thanks to the quirky image setting. Scenes in different color...

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...

El Bar (2017)

Film Review : El Bar Hey, a little respect. We’re all human beings here. We have to stick together and stay calm. “El bar” pretends to be a thriller comedy, but falls short on both levels. The film leans rather towards the comedy genre. But in terms of thriller, it’s...
