|70 41%||Annabelle Comes Home (2019) - Feb 20, 2020
"Annabelle Comes Home is a funhouse movie. It missed all the tension and nuance The Conjuring is known for. If nothing else, it's more joyfully entertaining, if not quite as good. "
|55 22%||47 Meters Down (2016) - Feb 20, 2020
"This movie had serious potential. It's nice to look at and most importantly, it's scary at times. What brings it down is a seriously insulting and pointless twist ending. "
|96 83%||Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019) - Feb 13, 2020
"Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is a surprisingly held back affair from Tarantino. His dialogue is on display as well as his keen directorial eye. It really comes down to its two lead actors. Both of whom give it their all and it results in a passionate film that if you're invested is probably one of Tarantino's best. However, the film certainly won't win him any unconverted fans. "
|32 9%||3 from Hell (2019) - Feb 12, 2020
"3 From Hell carries over a bit of the fun from Devil's Rejects. Richard Brake makes for a nice new inclusion. However the characters are no longer the madcap lunatics they were and the grindhouse style is let down by arms length direction from Rob Zombie. "
|34 9%||31 (2016) - Feb 12, 2020
"31 is a flawed film. In that the premise is a fun one and the clown characters are all a joy, even if they are only on screen very briefly. It is also brought down by a serious over-reliance on shaky cam. The biggest saving grace is Richard Brake as the psychotic Doom-Head. "
|68 37%||The Devil's Rejects (2005) - Feb 12, 2020
"The Devil's Rejects will not be for everybody. But for fans of grindhouse horror it is a fun and sometimes funny ride. The film slows down a bit in the middle but Zombie delivers an incredible ending to make up for it. "
|45 15%||House of 1000 Corpses (2003) - Feb 12, 2020
"The editing is nosensical and the premise is certainly difficult to follow. Overall House of 1000 Corpses is a funhouse ride through Rob Zombie's grindhouse style of gritty horror and in the end the film is enjoyable to watch. "
|95 81%||Ring (1998) - Feb 10, 2020
"A perfect exercise in subtly and nuance. Ringu is not the fastest moving or even the scariest horror movie. Its a slow build and the horror comes from the deeply unsettling mystery at the heart of the film. "
|36 11%||Beerfest (2006) - Feb 10, 2020
"The humor is excessive and the film loses its bite after just a couple of viewings. That being said, the Broken Lizard performers are still funny enough. And Jurgen Prochnow is always a treat. "
|15 2%||Dinosaur (2000) - Feb 04, 2020
"Dinosaur is a dull and plodding effort from Disney. The animation and sweeping visuals are appreciated, but from a story point of view it falls very short. "
