Sam did It (2018)

Sam Did It is a short film directed by British actor and writer Dominic Burgess, who also stars in the film Occasionally a short film as an in-betweenie is always welcome. Naturally, the short duration (that’s why it’s called a short film) is a huge plus. Also, the fact that...

Adopt a Highway (2019)

Aterrados (2017)

They were human voices. What did they tell you? That they were going to kill me. In Argentinian, they say “Aterrados“. It’s “Terrified” in English.

Prospect (2018)

Film Review : Prospect The Queen’s Lair. That’s a theory. What a fantastic SF! Not because there are breathtaking space landscapes. Or because impressive, galactic battles are being fought. And you won’t see a collection of exotic-looking aliens. To be honest, everything looks pretty cheap. As if someone has searched...

The man who killed Hitler and then the Bigfoot (2018)

That day, I just killed a man. What he stood for was unstoppable. The absurd title alone should stimulate your curiosity. A film with such a whopper of a title (sounding completely absurd) can only lead to an unrivaled experience. My first reaction was: “Only Monty Python can come up...

Jonathan (2018)

Wow. You’ve given each other the perfect male fantasy. Sex without emotional attachment. Fascinating. That’s the best description for this film. “Jonathan” is not an easy movie and it excels in monotony. But give this not so action-packed, one location situated film a chance and maybe you’ll discover how unparalleled...

You were never really here (2017)

McCleary said you were brutal. I can be. I want you to hurt them. It’s not just the fact that defenseless young children are victims of unscrupulous people who use them in networks for pedophiles. The most disgusting aspect of this is that these circuits are visited by people who...

Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

“Help me get one more.” Even the worst horror can’t make me look at the screen with disgust. But the moment one of these American soldiers set his hand on a seemingly lifeless body, a hysterical scream sounded and all hell broke loose, it did. The image of that unfortunate...
