Audition

1999

  Direction is just as important as story and even more important than acting. For this reason I probably have more favorite directors than I do actors or actresses. Takashi Miike is easily in my top five all time favorite directors. Before there was Imprint(Masters of Horror Season 1 Episode 13), there was Ichi the Killer andHappiness of the Katakuris. And before those two cinematic gems there was Audition; an absolute masterpiece of Japanese horror film making. Taken from a novel written by Ryu Murakami, Audition starts by... Read More

Jeepers Creepers 3

2017

Jeepers Creepers series. Thinking back on the progress and how we got to this point, a sequel had been in talks since before the second movie even found its way into theaters, but finding proper financing has always been an issue (and writer/director Victor Salva's sordid past didn't help matters). Over the years many ideas have been thrown around, like some parts of the film possibly taking place in western times (which might explain The Creeper's choice in clothing) and the more reported idea of the story taking place 23 years after the events of the last one. This idea... Read More

Goodnight Mommy

2015

This my one of the favorite movies of all time, I love to say the view and creepiness in this movie are amazing. Usually if a movie trailer depicts a movie a certain way and the actual film is completely different, I get annoyed. Why are you marketing it in a way that doesn’t actually do it justice? Just to make people want to see it? It smacks of desperation and comes across as a cheap ploy. However, in the case of the Austrian film Goodnight Mommy, the trailer does exactly what it needs to do by showing us things to make us terrified of one... Read More

Ichi The Killer (Koroshiya 1)

2001

Ichi The Killer (Koroshiya 1) is director by Takeshi Miike. I would say it is Miike’s best film, but he has such an extensive and varied catalogue it is hard to even see all his films let alone really compare them: they range from zombie musicals (Happiness of the Katakuris) to spaghetti westerns based on Shakespeare’s Henry VI (Sukiyaki Western Django). Miike is one of the world’s most prolific directors, making about 3 films every year for the past two decades and they are rarely in the same genre twice, although he does have a love stories involving the Yakuza (...

Noroi: The Curse

2005

It’s true that when it’s bad, it’s really bad, but there are a few gems out there that make it all worthwhile. The other day I managed to see what might be the most complex one yet, one that doesn’t sacrifice story for the sake of cheap shocks. This film, my friends, is Noroi the Curse, from director Kôji Shiraishi. Bearing more resemblance to something like Brian De Palma’s Redacted* than Paranormal Activity, the film is structured as a mockumentary by the fictional paranormal investigator/journalist Masafumi Kobayashi. He... Read More

Annabelle: Creation

2017

"Annabelle: Creation" falls in accordance with the advanced awfulness wave. It's the fourth film in "The Conjuring" serie — and the second spinoff to focus on Annabelle, a freaky-looking doll that resembles the Victorian-period cousin of "Child's Play's" Chucky — and it has every one of the components of a contemporary frightfulness hit, including the frightening doll, the spooky (or spooked out) kids and the house that is too huge not to be alarming during the evening.  On the off chance that exclusive it were, you know, scarier. "Annabelle: Creation" has yells and... Read More

Preservation

2014

So this is somewhat of a spoiler, however the "motif" of this motion picture is the killers are young people - however I'm certain you likely made sense of that when you read they ride bikes. That all by itself is insufficient to destroy this film. What is, in any case, is their appearing invulnerability (when it's helpful, obviously). The previously mentioned Sean is a previous military veteran who, at a certain point, hits one of the children in the head with the handle of his rifle most likely five or six times. Not exclusively does the executioner get up as though... Read More

The Bye Bye Man

2017

The heroes Elliot (Douglas Smith), Sasha (Cressida Bonas) and John (Lucien Laviscount) are generally wooden in their acting, however they can most likely be excused for working with a dull plot and dreary discourse. They're additionally dominatingly TV performers, and not especially refined ones at that, so to seek after them to convey the motion picture is excessive.  Indeed, even the working of the Bye Man's legend does nothing for the watcher, since the figure of speech has been played out by such a large number of various films that have likewise improved (...

10 Cloverfield Lane

2016

At the point when Cloverfield touched base on the extra large screen in 2008, nothing was thought about the J J Abrams-delivered beast film.  No curve balls there: from the web fuelled tricks encompassing TV demonstrate Lost to the express lockdown on spoilers for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, Abrams delights in conjuring up secret and interest.  Indeed, even by all accounts, be that as it may, new film 10 Cloverfield Lane was made under a cover of ­military-review mystery. Indeed, even the cast didn't comprehend what they were taping – it was... Read More

The Operator: Always Watching

2015

Chief James Moran makes his component make a big appearance here in the wake of filling in as an AD on various outstanding blood and gore movies (counting the initial three Paranormal Activity continuations), and the primary oversight made was relinquishing everything that made the arrangement awesome. There gives off an impression of being no information or innovative control given to DeLage and Magner, which was a noteworthy oversight. The subtlety and moderate form is consequently gone on the grounds that the wordy arrangement is out. The lo-fi look and feel is... Read More
