The Narrow Caves

I haven’t listened to that many narrative podcasts, but I kept seeing ads for The Narrow Caves, written by Director S. Craig Zahler (Bone Tomahawk & Brawl in Cell Block 99) brought to you by FANGORIA which promised an “ear-movie” experience, so I decided to give a try. The Narrow Caves starts out in 1923,

Fantastic Fest 2018 Wrap-Up

This year marked my first time at Fantastic Fest, which I THOROUGHLY enjoyed! Sitting in a dark theater with so many like-minded genre fans was an amazing experience, and though I can’t really afford to make it happen every year, I’ll definitely be back. Here’s a quick rundown of all the feature films I saw

Suspiria (2018)

Suspiria 2018 Dakota Johnson

It’s been almost a full week since I’ve seen Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria at Fantastic Fest, and I’m still thinking and rethinking and contemplating and dissecting and wanting to watch it again SO BAD it almost hurts.

The Nun

Whelp, the folks that dreamed up The Conjuring universe have FINALLY made a movie that I like. Actually, not just liked: LOVED. The Nun is dripping with Gothic Horror goodness, doesn’t take itself too seriously, and watching it feels *almost* like you’re watching a classic Hammer Horror flick. The action takes place inside a giant, mysterious castle in fog-covered

Unsane

As someone who’s had a stalker, deciding to watch Stephen Soderbergh’s Unsane alone, late at night, was probably not the brightest decision I’ve ever made. But I was intrigued by this whole “shot on an iPhone” biz, and also curious about how the film would handle my biggest nightmare: being stuck in a hospital ward

Revenge

HolyCRAP. I was not expecting Revenge to live up to its amazing hype, but it is absolutely worthy of every single bit of praise its getting from critics and fans. Aspiring actress Jen (Matilda Lutz – who was great in the otherwise dreadful Rings, but is AMAZING here) arrives with her super-rich, married boyfriend at his lush desert estate
