    Horror x52 - 1990s

    "Your death will be a tale to frighten children, to make lovers cling closer in their rapture. Come with me, and be immortal." - Candyman

    We all know how the urban legend goes; turn the lights off, look in the mirror and say the name of the boogeyman 5 times and he'll appear. Whether you have seen this film or not almost every kid would have heard some variation of its plot. We all done it…

    March around the world - South Korea

    If you have any intention of watching this film the best way is to go in cold.

    I was blown away... Burning is terrific, defying all expectations. Not for a while has a film left me speechless once the credits roll and that's what this film did.

    Even while watching it's hard to pinpoint what is happening in Burning... in the best possible way. Starting as a charming love story then slowly turning…

    Tremors

    ★★★½

    " Food for five years, a thousand gallons of gas, air filtration, water filtration, Geiger counter. Bomb shelter! Underground... God damn monsters."

    Tremors is a joyful ode to the cheap American monster movies of the 50s while managing to create its own mixture of suspense and goofy fun. The smalltown setting is ideal and the tongue-in-cheek style is never overcooked. The fact that it never takes itself too seriously is the film's biggest achievement. Even if characters are full of cheese you never mind being in their company. Excellently paced and overall a crowd-pleasing affair.

    Curve

    ★★

    After a run-of-the-mill opening Curve at least tries to do it a little different even if eventually it falls for the same traps these hitchhikers from hell films go.

    Relies on stupidity for the set-up. A decent enough survival horror with a likable lead.

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★★

    I’m becoming obsessed - I love the whole thing the fake movie scenes, chilling out in cars, the bromance, di caprio’s engaging melancholic character arc, Pitts purposefully problematic persona, Tate as the periphery of change, all the side characters (I take to a different one each time), the what if ending that defines a fairytale, the unease of knowing where that night really went, the marvellous use of the Rolling Stones Out Of Time etc etc... ok maybe there were too many feet but I can live. 

    I think this predictably divisive film is Tarantinos late career masterpiece.

    Horror x52 - Female Director

    Covered in a shroud of intense dread from the very beginning, intentions and motifs are not clear but you know something terrifyingly strange is going on. As we enter the setting (Not unlike the Sharon Tate, Manson murder setting - gives me chills just thinking about it) there is a slow and meditative build-up of claustrophobic paranoia... that keeps going and going, until you can almost take no more.

    It is beautifully done from the…
