    Daniel Isn't Real

    ★★★★½

    An unexpected rollercoaster of both supernatural/real life horror that blew my mind. 

    In its exploration of mental health, “Daniel isn’t real” expertly highlights the difficulty of living with various mental health conditions in both a sensitive and thought provoking way.

    Inside

    ★★★★½

    Finally a slasher that has disturbed me to my core but had me fixed to the screen.

    Inside is one of the only slashers that I’ve watched in recent memory that has truely frightened me. With such a simple plot, Inside excels at crafting a visceral plot with such intensity that I had palpitation throughout the film. 

    The body horror in this film, particularly in the last scene, had me squealing in pure discomfort and made me question my actual…
