Antlers (2021)—Review

From monster movies of the early years of Hollywood, to the Hitchcock era of psychological thrillers, to the occult and slasher flicks of the 70’s and 80’s, to the films of today, the horror genre has constantly evolved over the years. Out of all the different styles of horror flicks, the subgenre that I think …

Lamb (2021)—Review

A24 is a studio that has become known for its artsy, psychological horror films (The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017), It Comes at Night (2017), Hereditary (2018), Midsommar (2019), The Lighthouse (2019)), and I myself have loved/been deeply disturbed by most of them. So, I was very excited to see their newest film from …

Malignant (2021)—Review

The big name in horror that I always look forward to is the incredible director, James Wan. Between Saw (2004), Insidious (2010), and The Conjuring (2013) and The Conjuring 2 (2016), Wan has demonstrated fantastic success in his horror films and I have thoroughly enjoyed every horror film he has ever directed. So even with …

Candyman (2021)—Review

Recent years have brought about an emergence of revitalizing old horror properties as pseudo-sequels, from Halloween (2018) to Spiral (2021) to the new SyFy series Chucky (2021). Another recent trend in the horror genre, and a thematic element that has unfortunately been poorly overlooked prior, is the inclusion of themes surrounding the African American experience, …

Old (2021)—Review

If there is a director that I’m unsure how to feel about, it is M. Night Shyamalan as he has both some fantastic films (The Sixth Sense (1999), Signs (2002), Split (2016)) and some of the worst films I’ve ever seen (Lady in the Water (2006), The Happening (2008), and what I consider the worst …

The Last Duel (2021)—Review

Based on Eric Jager’s 2004 novel, The Last Duel: A True Story of Trial by Combat in Medieval France, Ridley Scott’s latest film is an absolute win. With a slew of phenomenal performances, an intriguing plot structure, a fantastic story, and beautiful cinematography, The Last Duel is a film that absolutely immerses you from beginning …

Dune (2021)—Review

I see a lot of films every year, and with every year comes a fresh batch of films that are phenomenal feats in the art of filmmaking, with only a very few, if any at all, being absolute masterpieces and instant classics. Prior to last night (October 21, 2021), I believed 2021 had already seen …

Halloween Kills (2021)—Review

There are not many film franchises where I hate the majority of the films but love the franchise as a whole, but the Halloween franchise, created by the legendary John Carpenter, is one of those franchises. Out of all of the series’ films, I’ve only liked Halloween (1978), Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982), …
