4/5 77% Terrified (Aterrados) (2017) This nonstop barrage of scares and super creepy set pieces is the equivalent of venturing into a haunted house attraction. It doesn't offer much in the way of a fully fleshed out plot with concrete answers, but it doesn't need to. ‐ Bloody Disgusting

3.5/5 100% One Cut of the Dead (Kamera o tomeru na!) (2019) Shinichiro Ueda's zombie comedy is one that purposefully pretends to offer familiar zombie schlock only to rip the rug out from under us in an innovative, hilarious way.

3.5/5 82% High Life (2019) Denis tries her hand at science fiction, but done in her naturalistic, heady style that trades high tech science in favor of exploring what deep space isolation can do on one's mental state. It's an arthouse meditation on time, death, and solitude. ‐ Bloody Disgusting

3.5/5 75% I Trapped The Devil (2019) A slow-burn tale of paranoia and familial obligation that does crawl out of the gate but crescendos in one satisfying ending. It may be small scaled in terms of setting and characters, but Lobo's debut is ambitious in effort .‐ Bloody Disgusting

3.5/5 62% Gretel & Hansel (2020) Like Perkins' previous efforts, his latest operates on mood and atmosphere over narrative, and it's one that lacks mainstream appeal. The film is mesmerizing style over substance, but one that transports you if you're open to its high-concept spell.‐ Bloody Disgusting

B- 63% Child's Play (2019) The stars of the film are the gory effects, the doll's design, and Hamill's animated voice work. Child's Play is pure entertaining fun for the horror fan, but not much else. ‐ Consequence of Sound

3/5 66% The Little Stranger (2018) There are moments of stark, unexpected violence, and chilling moments that hint at the ghosts within, but mostly The Little Stranger is a horror mystery that revels in its ambiguity. But the near two hour run time feels overlong.‐ Bloody Disgusting

2.5/5 91% Beast (2018) The tonal shift undoes what amounts to one of the more interesting origins of a serial killer in the making. A thriller without much thrills, Beast is a thought-provoking character study and sort of a dark fairy tale.‐ Bloody Disgusting

2.5/5 38% Leprechaun Returns (2018) While there's a lot of charm to be found, it's also sloppy in its world-building and doesn't give us anyone to truly root for. It doesn't feel like anything we haven't already seen before, either.‐ Bloody Disgusting

2.5/5 59% Tales from the Lodge (2019) The talented and comedic actors bring these characters to life in a very human way that keeps you invested up until the third act. Then it spirals into over the top dramatic mess with a more convoluted than necessary reveal.‐ Bloody Disgusting
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2019
2.5/5 17% Hellboy (2019) This doesn't quite feel like the Hellboy we wanted, but it does feel like a throwback to anything goes '90s horror, complete with not so great CG and over the top monsters. A lot of them. Technically, it's a mess of a movie.‐ Bloody Disgusting
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2019
2.5/5 20% Hurt (2018) Hurt is going to be divisive for many. It's deliberately paced and places a strong emphasis on broken relationships with flawed characters that aren't easy to root for. It's not conventional, but it does attempt to put fear back into the slasher. ‐ Bloody Disgusting
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2019
2.5/5 86% Lifechanger (2019) It's well shot and delivers on gooey, slimy practical effects. It might be a little too fast-paced, though; as the tragic love story at the heart of the film is never given much time for the emotional beats to fully resonate.‐ Bloody Disgusting
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2019
2.5/5 90% Starfish (2019) There's a lot to like about Starfish, but the choppy editing, the overly arthouse way it presents some of the themes, and underdeveloped aspects of the story in favor of the aural experience is ostracizing.‐ Bloody Disgusting

2.5/5 80% Stare (Shirai-san) (2020) Despite a few minor tweaks, the addition of gore by way of eye trauma, and a modern polish on an old trope, 'Stare' doesn't stray far from the J-horror formula introduced by 'Ringu' two decades ago.‐ Daily Dead
