    Malignant

    ★★★★

    This is one ridiculous and batshit gialli, and it couldn’t have been made by anyone other than James Wan. He really shows his roots, from Argento to Raimi to Bava, and churns it through those slick horror tactics he always offers.

A hell-bent creation of freaks and…

    The Year is 2017: Ranked and Reviewed

    The wettest kind of consciousness, percolating memories that flood with no specific significance, nor cascade with the true essence of meaning—they sit, stir, and rattle the brain with all of its attempts at explanation. Beckoning an existential gaze that beautifies the believers and the heroes—surrounded in a stream of fake electronic components and fake matter. To these wanderers, life is fenced in and forgotten, intact with their provisions and protocol—this is the future,…
