Review in Brief: Babyteeth (2019/20)

Review in Brief: Scare Me (2020)

SCARE ME is an absolute joy, full of mischief and creativity and completely different to every other horror anthology film out there. A simple enough premise – an aspiring horror writer waits out a power cut in an isolated cabin … Continue reading
