Don’t Worry Darling; Disastrous? Worse, Disappointing.

The most interesting stuff about this film isn’t even in the film itself, but the behind the scenes drama with everyone, or the fact that the lady next to me in the theater was very obviously playing with a vibrator during the Florence Pugh and Harry Styles scenes and making it very awkward for everyone around her. Continue reading Don’t Worry Darling; Disastrous? Worse, Disappointing.

Perfect Blue, a Reality Unlike Most

So years and years ago I heard whispers of this anime horror film called Perfect Blue. A film supposedly so disturbing that you were basically guaranteed to be traumatized watching it. Its been years now and on my birthday in 2019 a friend of mine had bought the movie for me on Blu-Ray as at that point I was starting to explore director Satoshi Kon’s … Continue reading Perfect Blue, a Reality Unlike Most

Free Guy is Fun, That’s About it.

Free Guy, starring Ryan Reynolds playing himself is a fun, fast paced, funny film. It’s nothing special and is held back by a few things including the film dropping the ball on the reddit concept of an NPC in a video game becoming self aware and breaking his programming. Guy, played by Ryan Reynolds basically playing himself once again, is a non playable character or … Continue reading Free Guy is Fun, That’s About it.

Bo Burnham’s Inside, Wish Dragon, Luca, and Us Again, a weird sleepless night fever dream I won’t forget

So around 10 PM on June 19th, 2021 I just couldn’t sleep for some reason, so I decided to watch Bo Burnham’s Netflix special Inside because a good friend of mine had suggested it to me and showed me a few of his favorite songs. All I knew going in was a few of the songs, and that it was going to be all over … Continue reading Bo Burnham’s Inside, Wish Dragon, Luca, and Us Again, a weird sleepless night fever dream I won’t forget

Spiraling Into Madness with Spiral: From The Book Of Saw

So I’ve always been a big fan of the Saw franchise ever since I watched the first film as a kid. There was something enticing about characters being killed as a punishment rather than being lambs to the slaughter. The film’s idea mixed the philosophy of John Doe from Se7en and the menacingly mechanical monstrosities of Cube in a thriller film. That same film series … Continue reading Spiraling Into Madness with Spiral: From The Book Of Saw

The Mitchell’s Vs The Machine’s connected to me

During my time at home I have started watching movies a lot more, catching up on films and tv shows I had never seen before like Your Name, Weathering With You, Akira, and Justice League (both versions).

The film formely … Continue reading The Mitchell’s Vs The Machine’s connected to me

“The Lodge”; A Cold Lesson About Denial

So I feel as if I’m the only person who has watched The Lodge, a physiological horror film that seems to play on the fear of isolation and a profound sense of not belonging.

The Lodge released in (select) theaters in 2019 and released on Blu-Ray on May 5th, 2020. I had known about the films existence for quite a while seeing previews for the film before watching both Midsommar and Parasite.

The short simple synopsis, Grace Marshall (played by Riley Keough) is stuck in a winter lodge during a heavy storm with two kids, Adain and Mia, who absolutely hate her as they are still grieving over the death of their biological mother. Their biological committed suicide after hearing the news from her ex-husband that he plans on marrying the woman, Grace, he had been interviewing her about her experiences of being raised in an extremist Christian suicide cult. During their stay, mysterious events begin to occur that seem to link to Grace’s past in the cult.

Before you finish reading this, please watch the film, as I will be spoiling the film from here on out.

Doctor Sleep and The True Villain Of The Film

Last year, the Stanley Kubrick classic, The Shining, had finally received a sequel. That sequel was Doctor Sleep. If you know me, I wasn’t too happy with the film and was even more upset with it being a sequel to one of my favorite horror films. But maybe I was too harsh on Doctor Sleep, as looking back on it, it did have something interesting … Continue reading Doctor Sleep and The True Villain Of The Film
