  • Halloween III: Season of the Witch

    Halloween III: Season of the Witch

    ★★½

    “What's the matter? Don't you have any Halloween spirit?”

    This film, more than anything is disappointing. The opening is genuinely great, the music is solid ofc, Dean Cundy’s camerawork is still great, and I really love the idea of the Halloween series as a horror anthology as opposed to a franchise. However, from the opening onwards the film nosedives. The final nail in the coffin for my personal distaste was the wholly unneeded and gross sexual relationship between the leads!…

  • The Craft

    The Craft

    ★★★★

    “Relax... it's only magic”

    Neve Campbell if you read this im free on Thursday night and would like to hang out. Please respond to this and then hang out with me on Thursday night when I’m free. 1996 really was her year huh? The Craft is fucking great, so much about it just hits for me, especially the first half. It doesn’t shy away from going pretty dark with the witches and magic,and when executed right it works so well.…

  • Halloween II

    Halloween II

    ★★★

    “Michael Myers! Just get your ass over here!”

    What a piss poor follow up to the original. Without even knowing how much Carpenter hates this film, which he really REALLY does, it’s so apparent he didn’t want to do it from the script. Dean Cundy’s still excellent camera work and some good additional scenes from Carpenter don’t save the garbage pacing and complete sidelining of Laurie. It’s just.... boring for the most part, so it’s not really fun bad.

    “Death has come to your little town, Sheriff”

    Debra Hill and John Carpenter really said fuck it, might go and make one of the most influential pieces of horror media of all time! Halloween continues to be the quintessential slasher, that may not have originated the sub-genre, but damn near perfected it. Of course, Jamie Lee Curtis is fantastic, and the love she continues to have for Laurie and her arc in the new canon 2018 sequel makes Laurie’s role…

  • The Evil Dead

    The Evil Dead

    ★★★½

    “Kill her if you can, loverboy!”

    It’s gory, it’s cheap, it’s extremely bloody, it’s got Bruce Campbell. That’s all I really expected from The Evil Dead, and that’s what it delivered. The first 40 or so minutes are pretty lacklustre, alongside having the infamous, and rightfully condemned, Tree Scene, which adds nothing to the film in any sense and frankly makes the whole film worse. The opening is pretty solid though I will give it that. The last 30 minutes…

  • Ready or Not

    Ready or Not

    ★★★★

    “Fuck”

    Thank you Ready or Not (2019) for the realistic depiction of Seth Cohen we have been waiting for!! Adam Brody renaissance.... its time. Adam Brody aside, this movie is CARRIED by Samara Weaving, her performance outshining pretty much everything in the film. Not to say the actual film is bad, it’s not at all, aside from the gross colour grading and somewhat awkward pacing, it’s a pretty solid, fun, gory, horror film.

    But Samara.... from the second she’s on…

  • Dog Day Afternoon

    Dog Day Afternoon

    ★★★★½

    “Kiss me. When I'm being fucked, I like to get kissed a lot”

    Al!! Pacino!!! Hot!!! Short king and absolute star of the show here. I adored this film, from the opening montage set to Elton John to the bitter, quiet end, the whole film just *chefs kiss*. The film is somewhat slow in terms of pacing, and frankly I love that for this film and the story it is telling, it’s a long fucking afternoon for Sonny and co,…

  • Carrie

    Carrie

    ★★★½

    “He's gonna laugh at you. They're all gonna laugh at you!”

    Carrie is one of those films that the majority of us know the basic plot of from its massive place in pop culture/film history, and is considered such a classic that my expectations were pretty damn high. It’s a shame then that those expectations were crushed pretty quickly upon seeing the film opens with continuous shots of naked teenage girls, with an extremely gross male gaze look at women…

  • Scream

    Scream

    ★★★★★

    “You’re starting to sound like some Wes Carpenter flick or something”

    It doesn’t matter if you know each twist or have seen it before, Scream still absolutely hits as one of the great slasher films. Frankly it might be even better in rewatch. It’s extremely 90s, in the best way it could be, the irony laced referential dialogue, homages and intentionally on the nose humour it just all WORKS. Sidney is such a solid protagonist and ‘final girl’, Neve Campbell…

  • Witness for the Prosecution

    Witness for the Prosecution

    ★★★★

    “One can get very tired of gratitude”

    When this courtroom drama actually takes place in the courtroom, it is absolutely fantastic and compelling as the case unfolds upon itself. It’s unfortunate that it takes nearly half the run time for the case to truly start, however, despite being a bit slow and dull the first half of the film is still pretty good. That is thanks to, in small part, Charles Laughton, who is consistently great, and major part to…

  • The Apartment

    The Apartment

    ★★★★★

    “That's the way it crumbles... cookie-wise”

    Billy Wilder is quickly becoming a fav of mine. Fantastic direction, cinematography, a sharp script, and a genuinely phenomenal cast, I truly understand now why The Apartment is considered a classic. Equal parts tender and cruel, the story may have its moments of predictability, which are then quickly subverted. Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine carry the film with such chemistry, vulnerability and kindness to the story and characters. The script is melancholic and bittersweet,…
