REVIEW: 

These days playing on Netflix is the chilling outside experience, The Ritual. Directed by David Bruckner written by Joe Barton, the film bases on four school companion's stumble into the forested areas following the passing of one of their classmates. Try not to be tricked by the entire outdoors in the forested areas situation. The Ritual does not endless supply of the typical repulsiveness tropes that kind groups of onlookers have seen on numerous occasions. 

Alongside their outdoors equip, this team of folks brings along a considerable measure of psychological weight on their trip also. The Ritual is a balance of suspenseful thrill ride and beast film. The characters are multi-layered and extremely all around acted. The apprehension inside themselves, and in addition among the companions, turns the pressure level on the whole film up an indent. Rafe Spall emerges with his splendid depiction of Luke, who was observer to his companion's murder. Spall shows an extensive variety of feelings successfully from despondency, torment, blame, dread and outrage. His execution gives genuine human profundity to Luke. This improves the part of The Ritual that works extremely well, the association of the gathering of people to the characters. With characters that are relatable, the watcher really thinks about this gathering of young fellows and feel their dread. At last, the mankind that is deficient in numerous blood and guts movies, The Ritual can accomplish. At the point when all hellfire descends upon this team, we really mind. 

Based off of Norwegian folklore, The Ritual gives a frightful dull tone, with the woods itself having a major impact in film. This film is charming, many-sided and all around created by Bruckner. All things considered, it additionally gives the dread factor and gut for the bad-to-the-bone repulsiveness fan. In case you're searching for a fascinating blood and gore movie with a profound story, help yourself out and look at The Ritual.

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

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

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 (...
