The real monster. Jeepers Creepers 3 – movie (non) review

When Jeepers Creepers made its appearance on the big screen I was 12 years old and, coming from an apprehensive Italian family, I wasn't allowed to watch horror movies. Becoming a teenager, however, my uncle introduced me to the horror genre (something I'm still thankful for), showing me all the classics of the genre and … Continue reading The real monster.

Starting off as the most anticipated movie of 2017 among horror fans, Stephen King’s IT is now the highest grossing horror film in cinema history (at least in the US), only some two weeks after it hit the American theatres.

The Classics of Horror #14 – The Thing (1982)

The creature-feature obsession that had ruled the black and white sci-fi horror cinema, stopped almost entirely in the 50s, with audiences overwhelmed by crappy B-movies and tired of being thrown the same story inhabited by paper-thin characters. A man alone, with a single film, changed everything at the beginning of the 80s. John Carpenter’s The … Continue reading The Classics of Horror #14 – The Thing (1982)

Never attempt to americanise Japanese horror flicks. Temple – movie review

I must confess I’m not a big fan of Asian horror films, with a few standout exceptions. Unfortunately, I don’t like their pacing and acting. I guess mostly I can’t understand Asian culture in this type of movies. Therefore, I was quite intrigued when I heard about Temple, a Japanese supernatural horror written and directed … Continue reading Never attempt to americanise Japanese horror flicks.

A slow-burn that will make you rethink outbreak films. It comes at night – movie review

A few films have been as controversial as It Comes at Night recently.  In the case of Trey Edward Shults's latest film, though, all the controversy lies in the polarised reactions the movie got upon its release. Something reminiscent of what happened with The Witch (2016), loved by critics and niche audiences; panned and literally … Continue reading A slow-burn that will make you rethink outbreak films. It comes at night – movie review

The Classics of Horror #11 – Alien (1979)

Upon re-watching Alien for the umpteenth time last night, I love it even more than I remember. Do you want to know why? Because it almost made me forget about Alien: Covenant… All jokes apart, Alien is a masterpiece of horror cinema in space. It tells the story of the crew of a space vessel … Continue reading The Classics of Horror #11 – Alien (1979)

The Classics of Horror #9 – The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)

When I sat through and played The Texas Chain Saw Massacre last night, my expectations were really high. Not only is this film about Leatherface and his psycho-cannibal family an iconic horror movie, but I also remembered watching it a few years ago, and being struck by its powerful scenes. Unfortunately, it didn’t have the … Continue reading The Classics of Horror #9 – The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)

Have you ever been let down – big time – by, say, a friend who turned out to be a huge disappointment instead of the amazing person you depicted him/her to be? Well, said friend is Alien: Covenant (2017) for me. I love Alien (1979) and Aliens (1986), I find Prometheus (2012) mentally challenging in … Continue reading Everything wrong with Alien: Covenant (spoiler filled)
