Before the Fire 0

Before the Fire (2020)

The virus has not spread there yet. We’ll go there. We’ll wait it out. And then as soon as it’s over we will come right back home.   There’s one admirable fact when it comes to the movie “Before the fire” and that’s the prophetic nature of this movie. When...

Becky 1

Becky (2020)

Becky is as strong-willed and vindictive as they come and you just tortured and killed her only living parent.   Feel like watching a straightforward “home invasion” film with dangerous-looking thugs (impressive body length, coarse facial features, and imposing tattoos on the back of their bald heads) taking an innocent...

Z 0

Z (2019)

Z likes it dark.   Movies with creepy little boys. With “Z” you also have the feeling you are getting yet another horror in which such a demonic boy is in command. Only recently I saw “The Prodigy” where the son of the house slowly develops a deviating pattern of...

Underwater 1

Underwater (2020)

We have about 30 minutes till meltdown. And, uh, it’s gonna blow us into tiny pieces to the surface.   Am I a Kristen Stewart fan? On the contrary. To be honest, I seriously dislike this actress. Not that her acting is so terribly bad. And in a way, she’s...

The Hunt 2

The Hunt (2020)

Why would they do something like that? Same reason elites do anything… ’cause they think they’re better than us.   Can someone please explain why there was so much fuss about the movie “The Hunt“. I understand that the release date has been postponed due to the El Paso, Dayton...

Vivarium 0

Vivarium (2019)

Near enough. And far enough. Just the right distance.   During this Corona crisis, watching a movie was an impossible task for me. Let alone that I could write down a sensible word to form an opinion. But now three weeks later, the urge to watch a movie once again...

Inherit the Viper 0

Inherit the Viper (2019)

Josie… promise me something. Protecting this family comes first. When it’s time to quit, we quit. No questions asked.   Everyone knows the principle of the “American Dream”. The ideal image of a hard-working American who, regardless of his origin, can reach the top through hard work and commitment. “Inherit...

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...

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...

Crawl 0

Crawl (2019)

You’re not my coach anymore, dad. That top predator crap doesn’t help. Did you think the last “Lake Placid” episode from the eponymous franchise was downright worthless, stupid and nonsensical (like I did)? Well, let me put your mind at ease. Despite some laughable facts, this reptile-horror “Crawl” isn’t bad...

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...

Monster Party 0

Monster Party (2018)

Them fucking yuppie scums won’t know what hit them. Perhaps it would be better that future burglars screen the residents of the targeted house first and then see if there’s something to get. That’s certainly a lesson those young burglars have learned in the movie “Monster Party“. After seeing the...

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...

We die Young 0

We die Young (2019)

When Rincon started doing his Shakespeare, you knew some poor bastard’s about to get smoked. “We Die Young” is not a typical Jean-Claude Van Damme film, where he can show off his trained body. In fact, in this film, the number of times Van Damme is demonstrating his fighting techniques,...

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...

0

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...

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....

0

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...

0

The highwaymen (2019)

Film Review : The highwaymen Bonnie and Clyde have been on the road for two years. Cold-blooded killers who are more adored than movie stars. This has to stop. Who doesn’t know Bonnie and Clyde? In 1930, this pre-war couple had nothing better to do than go down the path...

0

Level 16 (2018)

Film Review : Level 16 Each hall has its top girl and in this hall it’s me. “Level 16” really is an original film. Perhaps fairly minimalistic and limited in terms of storyline, but grand when it’s about the denouement. The moment the idea behind it all becomes clear, it...

0

Fractured (2018)

Who the fuck are you? Guess Who. Are you a fan of home-invasion movies where the concept of revenge keeps coming back, then this might be a must see for you. I say “maybe” because you’ll have to wait patiently for the first forty minutes before you realize what it’s...

0

The Bouncer (2019)

If something happens to my daughter I’ll kill you. You and your boss. Just when you think that an icon such as Jean-Claude Van Damme is becoming a caricature of himself and in danger of sinking into oblivion, he surprises you with such a part as in this film. The...

2

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...

0

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...

Seat 25 (2017)

You decide to go to Mars forever and you forget to tell your husband? I’m open to all kinds of films. It doesn’t have to be a blockbuster with star actors. I love indies as well. And already several times I was lucky enough to see a gem of a...

0

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...

0

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...

0

At first light (2018)

Hey, Sean, you got to see this. Look, this… this girl, you got to see what she can do. She has some crazy powers or something. Although this minimalist SF offers a rather disappointing outcome and they could have done more with the powers Alex (Stefanie Scott) has at a...

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...

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...

Tomb Raider (2018)

My opinion on “Tomb Raider” “Vogel can’t find the tomb without me, and since I’m dead and… since you’ve burned the rest of my research, he will never find it.” I was actually looking forward to watching this new version of “Tomb Raider“. Not only because I had a lot...

Bullet Head (2017)

  What the fuck was that? Beware of still water or a silent dog. I’m sure they meant well while creating “Bullet Head“. But the road to hell is paved with good intentions. The end result may be called original and quirky, but there are also a few flaws in...

The Cloverfield Paradox 1

The Cloverfield Paradox (2018)

“If you go… you and I will survive. I’m afraid if you don’t … No one will.” “Cloverfield” was a unique film. Lots of fans were looking forward to a sequel to this amusing found footage monster film. The sequel “10 Cloverfield lane” came 8 years later. It didn’t feel...

The Wall 0

The Wall (2017)

My opinion on “The Wall” “You Americans. Think you know it all. You think it’s simple. That I am your enemy. But we are not so different, you and I.” Ever seen “Mine“? A film about an American marine who accidentally steps on a landmine in the Afghan desert and...

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...

47 Meters Down (2017)

Lisa, you need to calm down. We need to get out of here! If you do not calm down, we will die here! In “The Shallows“, Blake Lively at least had a rock in the ocean on which she sat safely while a huge shark circled around her. That was...

The Shape of Water 2

The shape of water (2017)

“The natives in the Amazon worshipped it. Like a god. We need to take it apart, learn how it works.” I’ve watched this movie the night before the Oscar ceremony because I could feel it in my bones this film would possibly win that coveted statuette. Initially, I didn’t want...

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...
