The Good Things Devils Do Movie Review

Low-budget horror films are kind of a category unto themselves. When it comes to a critique, you’re somewhat honor bound to review them on their terms, taking into account the penny-pinching science that goes into special effects, scoring and, of course, casting. That’s why when […]

LOVECRAFT COUNTRY Episode 5: Strange Case Review

Picking up after Episode 4’s shocker of an ending, “Strange Case” begins with Tic violently confronting Montrose, but really centers on Ruby Baptiste (Wunmi Mosaku), now living with William (Jordan Patrick Smith) and offered a Faustian bargain: the possibility of living as a white woman […]

Immortal Movie Review

If you’ve been following my reviews for a time, then you should know that I love a great horror anthology film. Immortal (2019) made me very happy because it absolutely delivered what I was hoping it would. Not only was I impressed with the wonderful […]

Widow’s Point Movie Review

Personally, nothing beats a well-crafted haunted house story. Perhaps my affinity for them is rooted in the fact that they are just so damn hard to get right. For every The Changeling or The Others, there is a Walmart bin of lazy attempts and half-baked […]

Escape: Puzzle of Fear Movie Review

There’s nothing like a good plot twist to make your eyes widen, your jaw drop and the hairs on the back of your neck tingle. That is, if it’s a twist that catches you by surprise. If it’s one you spot a mere 10 minutes […]

LOVECRAFT COUNTRY Episode 1: Sundown Review

It’s a great time to be a fan of H.P. Lovecraft. If you want proof, just look at all the controversy over his racism. Hear me out, fellow cultists. I’ve written elsewhere about parsing Lovecraft’s antisemitism as a Jew (TL;DR, it was a rare instance […]
