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 (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 (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 (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...

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....

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

12 Strong (2018)

This is Afghanistan. Graveyard of many empires. Today you are our friend,tomorrow you are our enemy. It won’t be any different for you. Soon America will become just another tribe here. You will be cowards if you leave. And you will be our enemies if you stay. I only asked...
