Us – 2019

Originality: It’s good to see that Jordan Peele wasn’t a one-hit wonder. There’s a strong case to be made that this film is as good as his previous one, but it is certainly the better horror film. The concept of doppelgängers is perfect for a horror movie and Peele gives weight to this world by […]

A Quiet Place – 2018

Horror movies have really gone downhill a lot.

What makes it even weirder is that it is a musical. The story follows two mermaid sisters, Silver and Golden, who land in Poland and trade […]

The Shining – 1980

Stanley Kubrick is a genius, there is no doubt about it. He created great films for over fifty years and each one was unique and completely unexpected. One of his greatest films is easily The Shining. There are so many things to love about this film, but I’ll start with the direction. There are a […]
