Final Girl Friday: Sara, Creep 2

Desiree Akhavan is a force to be reckoned with and has been super impressive in front of and behind the camera with Appropriate Behaviour (which she wrote, directed AND starred in), Girls and The Miseducation of Cameron Post to name but a few. So imagine my delight when she also appeared in the much-awaited sequel… Continue reading Final Girl Friday: Sara, Creep 2

3 Witchy Horrors

None of these are really horror movies and one of them is pretty much a kids movie - but you can always argue that they contain horror themes and that's enough for me. I bet you all thought I'd choose Hocus Pocus for this list, didn't you? I totally nearly did but young Michelle Pfeiffer… Continue reading 3 Witchy Horrors

Ouija: Origin of Evil (Film) Review

I thought maybe I'd seen this movie before but it turns out not to be true. Like exorcism movies, I always get my Ouija board films confused too. In this case I'm so glad this was new to me because I've been binge watching The Haunting of Hill House (2018) this weekend*, which is by… Continue reading Ouija: Origin of Evil (Film) Review

Patchwork (Film) Review

Horror month rumbles on and I for one am as happy as a clam about it. This month is something of a mish mash of horror ideas which is ironic given the premise. Shall we? Patchwork (2015) IMDB Synopsis A bombastic throw-back horror-comedy that follows three young women who go out partying one night and… Continue reading Patchwork (Film) Review

Fall Projects

Autumn is my own version of Spring and when the days are bright and crisp, I'm inspired. I thought I'd let you in on one of my favourite ongoing projects and how my partner and I have been working to streamline everything for our brand new season.

Sierra Burgess is a Loser (Film) Review

Netflix is currently in the throes of a rom-com renaissance. Finally giving us smart new romantic movies, directed mostly by women, we've been spoilt lately with the mighty To All the Boys I've Loved Before (2018) and to a lesser extent Claire Scanlon's Set It Up (2018). Both movies are better than most films of… Continue reading Sierra Burgess is a Loser (Film) Review

Hurricane Bianca: From Russia With Hate (Film) Review

  Bianca is back and she's better than ever - is she though? Has this thinly worn narrative hit rock bottom now? I mean let's face it, the first movie although kind of cute in places, wasn't a game changer. And apart from the heavenly one-liner: "I’m fuckin’ this cat. You just hold the legs",… Continue reading Hurricane Bianca: From Russia With Hate (Film) Review
