    Alien

    ★★★★½

    “This thing bled acid. Who knows what it's gonna do when it's dead.”

    The initial entry to a forthcoming franchise, the slow creep through space that introduced us to the xenomorph — the one that started it all. The concepts of Ridley Scott’s creative process came to life during the new wave of a soon peaking sci-fi era that was taking its first steps; its easy to see how the preliminary success of an original idea like Alien — a…

  • Haunted Honeymoon

    Haunted Honeymoon

    ★★★

    Feeling much like a comedic reprisal of traditional horror tropes, taking its inspiration from classics like The Old Dark House (1932), The Cat and the Canary (1939) and House on Haunted Hill (1959) to name a few. Even though there exists a 1925 silent film called The Haunted Honeymoon — considered to be one of the first horror comedies to come out — this is not a remake, neither is it a remake of Haunted Honeymoon (1940). Gene Wilder set…

    The Fog

    ★★★½

    “Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream.”
    - Edgar Alan Poe (A Dream Within a Dream)

    Opening with a great quote from the strange and eclectic Edgar Alan Poe — one that draws parallels with the film’s themes. Starring scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis as well as her mother Janet Leigh, lest we forget the rest of the ensemble cast. The opening sequence by the campfire and beginning of the film provide a lot…

  • The Mist

    The Mist

    ★★★½

    “There’s something in the mist”

    Another great adaptation of Stephen Kings work — one that he himself deemed as genuinely frightful in comparison to his novella. Directed by Frank Darabont who previously adapted Kings novels with The Woman in the Room (1984), The Shawshank Redemption (1994) and The Green Mile (1999). Thomas Jane takes the lead in this adaption, playing a father living a simple life in a quiet remote town who takes a trip to the grocery store with…

  • Candyman

    Candyman

    ★★★

    “Say his name”

    Focusing less on Candyman and more on the community, which seems to be a reoccurring staple in horror movies that have come out in 2021 thus far. They use shadow puppetry to provide visuals for the flashbacks and backstory. The community’s backstory is an interesting touch for the series although some have argued that it brings too much politics to a horror movie — regardless of opinion it works well in this setting and for this film.…

  • Tales from the Hood

    Tales from the Hood

    ★★★★

    "You are responsible for the lives you've taken... for the dreams you've turned into nightmares."

    An anthological tale that spreads its metaphorical message with subtle emersion — taking its charm from Tales of the Crypt while bringing something new to the table. Inspiration wasn’t exclusive to the Cryptkeeper, the film and its format were a tribute to anthology films of the 1960’s & 1970’s — giving a nod to the Hammer Horror era. What makes this movie particularly frightening is that…
