Candyman

I think one of the horror films that has really stuck with me the most has been Candyman which was released in 1992. It was directed by Bernard Rose and was based on a Clive Barker short story called The Forbidden. Clive Barker of course made Hellraiser, which I have not fully gotten into yet. […]

Glasshouse is an official selection of the Fantasia Film Festival 2021. The Premise: Living in a glasshouse in total isolation, a matriarch helps her family survive The Shred, a dementia-like virus that […]

Review: Candyman (2021)

In 1992, Candyman struck fear in moviegoers across the world. It was like nothing horror fans had seen – one part slasher film, one part supernatural horror, and one part urban legend.  For decades, people have been afraid to say his name in the mirror. Director Nia DaCosta has brought the iconic character back to […]

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rating: 8.5 out of 10. Stephen King. Alice Cooper. Hillary Clinton. Richard Dreyfuss. Jean Reno. What do these people all have in common? They’re all 73 years old.

Agnes

Direct from Montreal’s premiere genre film festival, Fantasia, may I present: Agnes. Sphenisciphobia is the fear of nuns. That’s going to be relevant very shortly. Are you afraid of nuns? I don’t find them particularly scary myself, but there is something creepy about them, stripped of identity and personality, existing outside of society, of culture, of […]

Children Of Men: Overcooked, Undercooked And Nothing In Between

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rating: 7.5 out of 10. It’s day two in Over-The-Shoulder’s mini apocalypse, and Children of Men is the second film to be served on a silver platter for us to devour in a dismal cannibalistic lifestyle. But it’s an apocalypse – who can blame us? Anyway: Set in 2027 Britain, where eighteen years of […]

Jungle Cruise

The Premise: Based on a beloved ride at Disney that’s 20% water ride and 80% dad jokes (now with less racism!), the film adaptation introduces us to Dr. Lily Houghton (Emily Blunt), thwarted at every turn because of her gender, but dedicated enough to scientific pursuit to follow it all the way to the Amazon […]

The Isle is a stale melodrama

The Isle has wonderful scenery but a boring, unimaginative plot. The Isle is a 2018 movie about some shipwrecked sailors who get stranded on a strange island, filled with curious supernatural elements. These elements have divided the inhabitants of the island and made them afraid of a Strange Haunting ™. It’s marketed as a mythological […]

Bonkers Bad – Music (2021)

The rumors are true. So this is about a young autistic girl named Music (Maddie Ziegler). When her mother suddenly dies, her only next of kin is her newly sober half-sister (Kate Hudson). This is not going to be easy. Now this movie’s reputation precedes it. Even though this has a 2021 release date, it […]
