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.
Does it live up to the hype? Yes, it does and how.
Hereditary is a movie that snuck up on me from nowhere. To be fair, I only had seen the trailer during a Deadpool 2 viewing and was freaked the hell out - Hello darkness my old friend, where have you been? With a talented cast and an unknown director in his first feature film outing - indie horror is back baby.
A slightly flawed but great game.
As some of you regulars might know, I’ve been waiting patiently for State of Decay 2 for a while now, despite the fact I only started playing the original game a few months ago when I bought the Xbox Gamer Pass (best £7 subscription ever). Sadly I had to be patient until the long weekend before I could sink my teeth (pun intended) into it properly, but I’m loving it. There are some flaws, but I’ll get to those soon, the main point I want to make right now is: State of Decay 2 is totally worth the £23 price tag.
Netflix + Alex Garland + Natalie Portman = Cinematic Gold!
We first discovered and mentioned Annihilation to you guys late last year in a Triple R, so it was an easy choice for me to review, and I'm glad I did. Based on the award winning novel of the same name, Annihilation is a sci-fi horror, two genres that are right up my ally. Despite being hit with some controversy a few months ago, I can confirm Annihilation is a massive success for director Alex Garland, Netflix and actresses Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez and Tessa Thompson.
If I thought last week’s Twin Peaks series review was hard, I now have to try and explain mother!, a film that is drawing both massive amounts of praise and hate from critics and the public alike. Personally I really enjoyed mother! and I will admit I walked into the cinema not really caring. To properly explain my thoughts this will start off spoiler free, then I will give fair warning before I give some of the plot away. I know not everyone will love this film but it needs to be seen.
