    Mike Flanagan's first horror feature is an effective psychological thriller, packed with surprising moments and clever scares but suffers from a low budget that unable to give the movie better production designs and more convincing performances.

    Date Night


    Thanks to charming chemistry of its two leads, Steve Carrell and Tina Fey, and a few memorable supporting performances from the likes of Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, and Mila Kunis that help to divert attention away from Shawn Levy’s flaccid direction, 'Date Night' ultimately rises well above its formulaic premise and provides solid laughs throughout.

    ‘Perempuan Tanah Jahanam’ is a good looking, competently made but uneven film.

    The Haunting


    ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ is incredible. Not just a great horror series but also a fascinating character study and a moving look at family and loss that slowly will crawl underneath your skin. Brilliant performances and casting too. So scary! So emotional! Mike Flanagan never disappoints. Bow down.
