    Sadako 3D 2012

    ★★★ Watched 12 Oct, 2016

    Setting aside the two American films, by 2012 the RING(U) series had sat dormant in Japan for twelve years. But if there's one thing that Japanese horror franchises have in common with American ones, it's that nothing will truly stay dead when there is money to be made. However, once it was time to actually make a new RING movie, the filmmakers had to confront the interesting conundrum of where exactly to start off from. While the last Japanese film,…

    It Follows 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 03 Apr, 2015 2

    It's always tempting to look for the flaws in a movie with this much hype and positive buzz...but sometimes the movie is just really that good, folks. What is most impressive about It Follows is not just the incredible sense of tension it manages to build with such a simple (but creative) premise, but rather how modern and fresh it manages to feel even while indulging in the kind of "throw back" stylings that are really popular in the genre…
