Gerald’s Game (2017)

So, much like the tons of Netflix-watching peeps out there, my Better Half and I opted to check out The Haunting of Bly Manor this weekend. Bly Manor is the second ‘haunting’ series brought to the streaming service by talented horror writer / director Mike Flanagan, the first being the solidly effective The Haunting of […]

Casualties of War (1989)

Brian de Palma is another legend in Hollywood. Going all the way back to 1960, his films have ALMOST always resonated with audiences, in one way or another. I mean really, when you can boast having the likes of Carrie (1976), The Fury (1978), Blow Out (1981), Scarface (1983), The Untouchables (1987), Carlito’s Way (1993) […]

Seraphim Falls (2006)

Way back when, I used to work for a company called Technicolor Cinema Distribution as a Film Revisor (2007-2011) and I loved it, film nerd that I am. One of the duties I was charged with, before I was promoted to Account Representative, was the removal and attachment of select trailers to 35mm film prints […]

Enemy (2014)

Canada has gifted the world with some serious talent behind the camera, with the likes of James Cameron (Avatar), David Cronenberg (The Fly), Vincenzo Natali (Cube), Atom Egoyan (The Sweet Hereafter) and Bruce MacDonald (Hardcore Logo), among others, having all contributed worthwhile works to the gallery of world cinema. One of the newer members of […]

Train to Busan (2016)

Zombies…ya gotta love em! Going back to 1968, when George Romero unleashed a new and lasting breed of the undead upon the movie-going masses with the classic Night of the Living Dead, entertainment cultures around the world have readily embraced the nightmare scenario of the reanimated corpses walking and stalking among us, often to Big […]

Underwater (2020)

I’m a sucker for flicks that take place in hostile environments, where the characters must fight to survive, often against some ‘terror from beyond’. For some reason, considering that I have a wussy fear of deep water (if I can’t see the bottom, peace out!), the science fiction / horror stories taking place beneath the […]

Ad Astra (2019)

I was genuinely curious about this one when it hit cinemas last fall, but my enthusiasm wasn’t as such to compel me to make the trip to the theatre at the time. Having just caught up with it, thanks to Crave, I can honestly say that I’m seriously kicking myself in the ass for not […]

Color Out of Space (2019)

I was first introduced to South African writer / director Richard Stanley’s work back in the early 90’s, when I came across his first feature length film on VHS, 1990’s sci fi / horror flick Hardware. Previous to that, he’d been cutting his teeth on risky documentaries and edgy music videos. Hardware made quite the […]
