Quiet Place Part II, A

My review of John Krasinski’s 2018 A Quiet Place called the movie “a superb exercise in understated terror that puts to shame ‘horror’ films that rely on jump scares and cheap theatrics.” It was one of the best films of the year and ...

Army of the Dead

Spiral

It’s very difficult to kill a slasher film franchise. The existence of Spiral is proof that, no matter how many times you put down a series like this, it keeps coming back for more. The original Saw reached theaters in 2004 and, as I wrote i...

Antebellum, a Twilight Zone-ish thriller from the writing/directing duo of Gerard Bush & Christopher Renz, takes its time establishing itself as one thing before transitioning to something completely different. The non-chronological nature of ...

Invisible Man, The

Aside from the title, the basic concept, and the use of the surname “Griffin,” Leigh Whannell’s “reboot” of The Invisible Man bears little resemblance to the 1933 classic Universal monster movie and even less resemblance to the 1897 ...

Crawl

Crawl is an old-fashioned B-grade monster movie made with 2019 technology. In short, that means plenty of gore and jump-scares to go along with creatures that no longer look like puppets or men in rubber suits. Jaws kept the shark hidden for m...

Ma

On the surface, Ma is seemingly just another entry into the generic horror/thriller category about a seemingly good-hearted stranger who worms her way into the bosom of a group before showing her true (psychopathic) tendencies. Although these ...

Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, The

Spoilers! (Is that relevant for a film that’s 100 years old??)In no way does any aspect of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari resemble what we today would identify as “film.” With its bizarre set design, over-the-top acting, and operatic style, ...

Greta

Remember the rash of ‘80s/‘90s thrillers about psycho friends/lovers who turned out to be stalkers? The most prominent of those was probably Fatal Attraction, but it was by no means the only one. Greta seeks to exhume the skeleton of that...
