The reason why I’m banging about Apostle two months after it came out, is because I don’t want anyone to miss this interesting movie.
Apostle was a nice little surprise from the Welsh director of The Raid and the segment Safe Haven of V/H/S 2. It started streaming on Netflix just in time for Halloween on October 12, but the reason why I’m banging about this two months after it came out, is because I don’t want anyone to miss this interesting movie.
The horror comedy that has it all: ghosts, pizza, witches, a werewolf, murder and is produced by A24.
It’s December and in the next few weeks I decided to review a few movies that came out earlier in the year that I didn’t have the time to watch or to write about before and I also feel didn’t get, for one reason or another, half the recognition they deserve. Today I want to bring to your attention Slice, that was barely talked about anywhere… is it just because it was an indie movie? I would have thought the all-star cast would have attracted more people. This horror-com has serious potential of becoming a cult classic. I think Slice got forgotten about pretty quickly and even if it won’t win any film of the year awards, it sure is worth spending an hour and a half of your time.
An entertaining entry into the franchise but left me mildly unsatisfied…
Let’s face it, the Halloween franchise has always been a hit and miss prospect. One movie is great, the next one is average, etc., etc. With every Halloween: H20, there is the disastrous Halloween: Resurrection. Rob Zombie’s Halloweens were also hit and miss. Say what you want about his version, but at least it was different to everything that came before it.
"I feel the need to say that still 40 years after coming out, the film that was almost called The Babysitter Murders, stood the test of time."
The new Halloween is out today (October 19th) here in the UK, and since it follows the story directly where the 1978 movie left it, I figured it was appropriate to review this classic. You read that right, that means you won’t need to spend a day watching every single one of the 8 Halloween films of the original run or even the 2 (AWESOME) Rob Zombie reboots to refresh your memory of all Michael Myers' antics, because none of that counts for squat in the whole storyline anymore.
We can call Upgrade a cross between Blade Runner and John Wick, but if you think you are watching a film based on a story by Philip K. Dick, you would be wrong.
Everywhere I go in the interwebs, I only see people saying good things about Upgrade, so I went in pretty positive that I was going to enjoy this Sci-fi/ Revenge/ Thriller, and sure enough, I did.
