Preservation - review
Christopher Denham


An anesthesiologist (Wrenn Schmidt) must stir her animal senses when she, her better half and her brother by marriage turn into the quarry of concealed hunters who need to transform them all into trophies.


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 nothing happened, Sean doesn't have enough sense (remember, he is prepared close by to hand battle) to make certain the person is unarmed, dead, oblivious, or any of the above. Rather, he walks out on him. Another scene sees a child bounce back from a flat out beating as though nothing has happened. At first I thought maybe the masks made them strong, but this is not the situation. It's scene after scene of this, and unpleasant subplots that go no place, alongside unlikable characters, that make this motion picture hard to sit through. The quest for the assassins at last is totally mind blowing and ludicrous, however the child interfering with a slaughtering to answer a call from his mother was engaging. I had high trusts in this film (for reasons unknown) however Preservation at last puts on a show of being an irregular blend of Eden Lake and Wrong Turn.



Pet Sematary Review

Pet Sematary


Whether you’re the type of person who loves remakes or simply the type who loves to hate them, it’s highly likely that 2019’s Pet Sematary is on your radar for one reason or another if you’re into horror. It’s directed by Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer (who also directed Starry Eyes) and is, of course, a reboot of the classic Stephen King film Pet Sematary from 1983. Pet Sematary stars Jason Clarke (Winchester, Trust), Amy Seimatz (The Sacrament, You’re Next, Bitter Feast), and the always legendary John Lithgow (Raising Cane, Twilight Zone: The Movie). Those who aren’t... Read More



In this unfairly forgotten film, Bernard Rose proposes a terrible genius loci: in fact a popular area (Cabrini-Green) seems to be manned by Candyman, a bloodthirsty spirit that guts with a hook anyone who summons him in front of the mirror. Helen finds him out by chance, collecting interviews for her thesis on contemporary folklore. After discovering that some years earlier, precisely in the Cabrini-Green, some violent homicides remained unpunished, Helen hypothesizes to have mistakenly collected only narratives, concerning real events that have been modified, year by...

Hereditary - Evil runs in the family


“Hereditary”  is a literally "homemade" horror. The physical home, as a place of family life and as creative microcosm of Annie, and the metaphysical home, as a dreamlike symbol of the stability or instability of the Ego, are inextricably intertwined in a game of Chinese boxes : a husband , a son, a daughter, and a miniaturist job she loves. But also a bulky mother: Ellen. Annie has always been trying to fix her "home": and soon we realize that something, in addition to the ambivalent relationship between her and the now defunct Ellen, does not work. Starting from...

Carnage Park Review

Carnage Park


Like his peer Quentin Tarantino, writer/director Michael Keating is famous for making films that are all about borrowing from the greats to create something truly unique. Carnage Park is definitely a good example of his fast-paced filmmaking style in action, but how does it stack up to his other work, and is it actually worth a spot on your running list of must-see films? Carnage Park can probably best be described as a horror film crossed with a crime thriller. In addition to being written and directed by Michael Keating (who also directed Psychopaths, Ritual and the... Read More

A Quiet Place review

A Quiet Place


There are movies that take their time building a mood and movies that pull you right into their carefully crafted worlds pretty much right away. John Krakinski’s A Quiet Place is definitely the latter. The first thing the viewer sees is a barefoot family scavenging for supplies in the middle of an abandoned supermarket. However, they’re doing so completely silently – not exactly average for a family that includes three children. We’re promptly informed via a title card that we’re on “Day 89” of whatever’s going on and with that, our journey into this very quiet world... Read More
