    ★★★

    Above average found footage.
    Quality dread-inducing. Refreshing lack of reliance on jump scares and shaky camera.

    Could've been trimmed by 10mins, & the actors were bland.

  • Phantasm II

    Phantasm II

    ★★★★

    Chainsaw fights, quadruple-barrel shotguns, the same beautifully unexplained mythology, & 6x the budget of the original.

    Just lacking in that bit of magic it's predecessor was soaked in. 

    Overall: a blasty blast.

    ★★★★

    Deceptively stripped-down modern folklore. Consider my heart warmed.

    Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

    ★★

    Not much peculiar here. It's a rehash mishmash of better stories; a collection of orphaned ideas, tossed in a Tim Burton goulash & set to cook low and waaaaay too slow.

    The central performance is cringe-worthy.

    Eva Green is magnetic, but has absolutely nothing to do in this movie.
