    Hooptober Ocho - #34 - Watch a haunted house movie.

    A scary-as-balls sequel with an unforgivably bad twist. After some consideration awhile back I came up with (what I think to be) a great summary of what makes a good twist. Ahem - “A good twist is one that you didn’t seem coming, but once you see it you can’t believe you missed it”.

Halloween Kills really wants to be a meaningful chapter in the convoluted and…

    A psych horror character portrait of a girl with a messiah complex. Normally after I finish a movie I can’t wait to write about it - especially if I liked it. Saint Maud was unusual because I definitely liked it but struggled to piece together what it was that compelled me. After a day of on and off reflection I think I’m finally ready to get it all down satisfactorily. Saint Maud is aptly titled as this movie is all…
