Reviews in Brief: Fear Street Trilogy (2021)

Welcome to Shadyside for a trilogy of horror films telling the story of the curse of Sarah Fier. This might have been inspired by the books of RL Stine, but be warned – GOOSEBUMPS this ain’t. FEAR STREET PART 1: … Continue reading

Review in Brief: A Quiet Place Part II (2021)

Certainly less lean and no-nonsense than the first instalment and too reliant on stupid horror movie characters acting like stupid horror movie characters, A QUIET PLACE PART II is still a mostly solid follow-up. After a pretty breathtaking opening flashback … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Spiral: From the Book of Saw (2021)

Make no mistake, SPIRAL is a SAW movie, it’s not a bold new direction for the franchise. Bafflingly someone says at one point “Jigsaw didn’t target cops”, which makes you wonder how closely people have been watching the other films … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Willy’s Wonderland (2021)

WILLY’S WONDERLAND is proof positive that nobody needs to make a FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S movie now. Nicolas Cage is a silent janitor with borderline superhuman capabilities seemingly imbued by energy drinks fighting animatronic mascots possessed by a cannibal cult. … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Possessor (2020)

We’re all just meat puppets really, that’s the message here. POSSESSOR is as stylish and extreme and disturbing as expected from Brandon Cronenberg, son of David, but it’s very much its own thing as well. Andrea Riseborough and Christopher Abbott … Continue reading

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

Review in Brief: Relic (2020)

RELIC is an oppressively creepy, deeply moving horror from already-distinct Australian filmmaking voice Natalie Erika James. Kay (Emily Mortimer) along with her daughter Sam (Bella Heathcote) goes looking for her missing dementia-suffering mother (Robyn Nevin) but when she reappears apparently … Continue reading
