The Horror comedy that has it all: ghosts, pizza, witches, a werewolf, murder and is distributed 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.
...one of the best nights of my life.
I didn’t want to write about this concert because I felt it would be a review way too personal, but then I thought ‘fuck it, when I’m old and senile I can re-read this, and think about the best night of my life’.
"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.
"fourth instalment of the successful series that could go on forever, because so far, they've always managed to keep the story fresh and bring something new to the table."
The First Purge is the second directorial effort for Gerard McMurray after Burning Sands and is the first Purge movie not to be directed by creator James DeMonaco. It is also the fourth instalment of the successful series that could go on forever, because so far, they've always managed to keep the story fresh and bring something new to the table. There are a number of angles they can still explore and maybe the fact that The First Purge is the highest grossing entry in the franchise, means that there are many other people that agree with the way I think.
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.
