One giant built-up to a clever twist. Lake Bo(re)dom – movie review

It’s not a very smart pun, I know. Obviously, the real title of this Finnish horror thriller is Lake Bodom, a movie that came out in 2016 but had its wide release in 2017. Regarded as one of the smartest horror films in recent years, Lake Bodom utilises an actual crime case that happened in … Continue reading One giant built-up to a clever twist.

I JUST SAW… Baskin (Turkey, 2015)

Here we are, starting a new series in which I'll be taking a look at some random movies that went overlooked or are just plain unknown. Most of the movies I’ll be watching and talking about are foreign (as in non-American), therefore I hope you don’t mind reading subtitles! Obviously, these are all going to be … Continue reading I JUST SAW… Baskin (Turkey, 2015)

An unsettlingly bold combination between psychological and supernatural horror. The Blackcoat’s Daughter – movie review

Oz Perkins' journey into the reimagination of horror sub-genres has led him to create The Blackcoat’s Daughter, originally released in 2015 under the name February and widely distributed a few months ago with the current title. In 2016, Perkins had already raised some controversy with I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House, a 19th … Continue reading An unsettlingly bold combination between psychological and supernatural horror.

The Classics of Horror #20 – The Sixth Sense (1999)

Once upon a time, M. Night Shyamalan was the most promising director in Hollywood, not just a meme to make fun of. Mostly, said reputation came from a masterpiece that blew everybody’s mind in the late 90s: The Sixth Sense. On one hand, I’m glad to conclude this six-month long series with a truly great … Continue reading The Classics of Horror #20 – The Sixth Sense (1999)

1st Halloween Special – horror guilty pleasures

As you might now, I’m very fond of the ‘so bad it’s good’ type of movies. This list, however, will focus on five titles that I consider to be highly entertaining, rather than plain awful ones. The films I’m talking about can’t be considered good motion pictures on many levels (storyline, characters, production values and … Continue reading 1st Halloween Special – horror guilty pleasures

The Classics of Horror #19 – The Blair Witch Project (1999)

Only a few movies on this long-lasting list are ground-breaking enough to having given popularity to an entire sub-genre. One of them is The Blair Witch Project, responsible for the endless stream of found-footage flicks that came out ever since 1999. Thank you *insert sarcasm here*. This entirely shot on camera, late 90s film is … Continue reading The Classics of Horror #19 – The Blair Witch Project (1999)
