42% Capone (2020) Should Capone end up being a hit, Hardy will end up among the great ham sandwiches of cinema, along with Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest, and Rod Steiger in The Amityville Horror.‐ The Spool

100% Z (2019) Christensen, along with co-screenwriter Colin Minihan, has created a new and deeply unsettling take on an old story that works without additional bells and whistles. ‐ The Spool

74% The Wretched (2020) The Wretched is Rear Window meets The Witch, with a side order of body horror, and somehow it blends together seamlessly.‐ The Spool

72% The Other Lamb (2020) The Other Lamb doesn't have much new to say about the nature of cults but effectively evokes that stumbling-around-in-the-dark feeling that comes from being gaslit.‐ The Spool

98% Extra Ordinary (2020) It's a rare and very enjoyable treat.‐ The Spool

100% Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street (2019) An insightful, sensitive look at how Patton's role in the film first destroyed his career, then became a touchstone for gay horror fans years later.‐ The Spool

74% The Fog (1980) It's like sitting around a campfire, and a cold hand drops on your shoulder from out of nowhere.‐ The Spool

80% VFW (2020) It's a classic "good guys vs. bad guys" set up, and Begos does it very well, with a delightful level of gore.‐ The Spool

73% Caged Heat (Caged Females) (Renegade Girls) (1974) To watch Caged Heat is to be weirdly inspired - from garbage can eventually come greatness.‐ The Spool

90% Bliss (2019) Bliss should finally put a sock in the mouth of every joyless crank who... resorts to "still a better love story than Twilight" as a witty joke. ‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2020
86% Color Out of Space (2020) Color Out of Space is a wild, effectively creepy ride. Like Panos Cosmatos and Mandy, Richard Stanley found his perfect muse in Cage.‐ The Spool

91% Bacurau (Nighthawk) (2020) Evil doesn't need an explanation, and it doesn't need to be understood, especially the kind of evil that exists to do others such grievous harm. ‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2020
100% In Search of Darkness (2019) In a time when people seem far more interested in litigating on social media what exactly 'horror' is, it's both refreshing and delightful to see such an open-armed embrace of the genre as a whole.‐ The Spool

98% Vitalina Varela (2020) The real Vitalina is a commanding screen presence, who makes the mere act of covering her head in a kerchief seem ritualistic.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2020
98% Varda by Agnès (2019) Varda by Agnes doesn't just make you wish that it was longer, but that it was possible to see every single image Agnes Varda ever put to film.‐ The Spool

89% After Hours (1985) He never really seems to be in mortal danger so much as mocked and harassed for being so deeply out of place. For many men, however, being made to feel small is a fate worse than death. ‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2020
89% The King of Comedy (1983) He's simmering with anger because he's not a star yet. Is he funny enough to be? Eh, not really. That doesn't matter, though, it's what he thinks he deserves.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2020
82% Daniel Isn't Real (2019) Robbins and Schwarzenegger are both excellent, feeding and bouncing off of each other like an actual real-life toxic friendship.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2020
82% Koko-di Koko-da (2020) Like in Jennifer Kent's The Babadook, grief makes Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers look like pikers. It knows no pity, it offers no peace. ‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2020
43% Sick, Sick, Sick (Sem seu sangue) (2019) Let me clarify: the 'bringing her beloved back from the dead' part doesn't happen until almost ninety minutes into the movie, and there's only another fifteen minutes after that.‐ The Spool

67% Carmilla (2019) Carmilla isn't scary, she's vaguely menacing, in the same inexplicable way that a person who makes you feel certain things you know you shouldn't be feeling, but can't help it.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2020
88% Mystery Of The Night (2019) It sounds pretty straightforward, and yet Mystery of the Night is so dedicated to its own completely original brand of weirdness that it's impressive.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2020
81% Girl on the Third Floor (2019) While still relying on some of the tried and true "white people in a haunted house" tropes, Girl on the Third Floor is a fresh and fun addition to the genre.‐ The Spool

62% Interview with the Vampire (1994) Cruise chews the scenery like it's covered in fried chicken skin, all but licking his fingers afterward.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2020
0% Grand Isle (2019) Though he perks up towards the end, Cage looks exhausted most of the time, and you can almost hear the weary sigh as he signed the contract agreeing to star in this.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2020
86% Zombi Child (2020) Any movie that features a privileged white teenager who believes she's entitled to trespass in the veil between worlds just because her boyfriend dumped her gets points for audacity.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2020
10% Milk Money (1994) It exists largely so the film could be sold as a spicy romantic comedy that you could still show to your grandmother, if your grandmother had no taste.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2020
97% Boyhood (2014) It's terrifying. It's heartbreaking. Boyhood catches that perfectly.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2020
86% The Sixth Sense (1999) It's simply one of the most affecting, deeply human ghost stories ever made.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2020
83% Magnolia (1999) We're all walk-on characters in the movies of other people's lives, and that's what Magnolia is, a series of short films that all have a thread tying them together.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2020
86% The Nightingale (2019) Just as it's unflinching in its portrayal of sexual assault and violence, so too is The Nightingale honest about the idea of revenge.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2020
92% Ponyo (2009) Ponyo gets it. There are other, different worlds than this, but they don't have what we have. ‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2020
73% The Perfection (2019) The fact that most of it works pretty well is a happy, bloody, and creepy surprise.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2020
88% Live in Front of a Studio Audience: Norman Lear's 'All in the Family' and 'The Jeffersons' (2019) [I]t comes off more like you're overhearing something you shouldn't at a cocktail party.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2020
59% Charlie Says (2019) For all its strengths as a film, we still don't know any more after watching Charlie Says than we did before.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2020
85% Sixteen Candles (1984) To try to explain Sixteen Candles as a person who was there for it in first run today is to helplessly shrug and say, 'I don't know, man, it was a different time.'‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2020
55% Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) Why did people -- or, more specifically, women -- buy his nonsense? Even after Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, we still don't know.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2020
65% Reality Bites (1993) The deeper themes of choosing art and integrity over earning a living . . . felt phony and hollow then, and are nothing short of embarrassing to watch from a modern perspective now.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2020
7% The Amityville Murders (2019) Rather than a script, it uses a 'Haunted House Movie 101' checklist.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2020
96% John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch (2019) It's a most loving poke at a genre left behind in the age of irony, when people didn't care how silly they looked as long as they got a chance to entertain.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2020
85% All That Jazz (1979) It's the opposite of a vanity project.‐ The Spool
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2020
80% VHYes (2020) Robbins has a niche audience he's looking to appeal to, and he succeeds in recreating the strange planet of the late '80s with cheek, intelligence, and heart.‐ The Spool
