  • The Invisible Man

    The Invisible Man

    ★★★★

    The invisible man is a cunning monster born from a dangerous cross between scientific brilliance and uncontrollable narcissism. However, unlike other classic monsters, what makes Griffin (the invisible man) a monster isn't exactly his "superpower", but his complete lack of empathy and scruples.

    In addition, this Griffin has another "superpower" that is much more destructive (and relatable) than invisibility: he's an expert manipulator. The film demonstrates both his abilities very well and, cleverly, almost always through the suffering of his…

    Orca: The Killer Whale

    ★★★½

    "The world has changed. Even our Gods dance to a new song."

    I'm pretty amazed by this early "Jaws" rip-off. In addition to the impressive cast that includes the muses Charlotte Rampling and Bo Derek and the great Richard Harris in the lead role, "Orca: The Killer Whale" has creative sets, an admirable mix of practical effects and real images to create its killer whales, a beautiful soundtrack composed by Ennio Morricone and, at the heart of it all, a…

  • Leviathan

    Leviathan

    ★★

    A monster movie inspired by "Alien" and "The Thing" is an irresistible idea for any horror fan. It's a shame that instead of a fun jumble of good ideas tied together, "Leviathan" is just a clumsy attempt to profit from the success of other films, including James Cameron's "The Abyss" released in the same year and largely responsible for Hollywood's sudden interest in underwater horror during 1989/1990.

    During the film, Doc, played by Richard Crenna and by far the most…

    The Open House

    ½

    Another cheap psychological horror film from Netflix, just like last year's "Clinical" and so many others. Here you can find a huge selection of the most worn-out clichés of the genre. All performed in the most boring way possible.

    This movie has no soul. It looks like it was made by a robot. And most of the time it seems that it's interpreted by robots as well.

    Dylan Minnette goes through the entire film alternating between two facial expressions: boredom…

  • Hereditary

    Hereditary

    ★★★★★

    What a wicked and sick film. I loved it!

    Many people blamed a critic who said that this movie was "The Exorcist" of this generation for causing a false expectation about the real intent of the film. I agree with him. "Hereditary", in many ways, is a profound evolution of the central fear addressed by the 1973 classic: the fear of losing control of one's own body and mind. But this time, without the focus on the contortions, the rotting…
