    The Rizen

    ★★

    Wow this was a rough one to get through. A single location zombie film that obviously was quite low budget and its shows in its lacklustre effects. To make matters worse the acting is terrible all around except for Bruce Payne who I've always been a fan of but he only shows up for one scene.

    The film is mainly 2 and then later 3 characters wandering hallways trying to figure out what's going on. We are given that answer slowly over the runtime but the film doesn't bother to create any engaging characters to guide us through our journey. Just avoid this one. 2/5 stars.

    ★★★

    You know for a film that starts off as a Texas Chainsaw ripoff this actually ended up pretty decent. It has a somewhat interesting backstory to the cannibal family. Also I thought the twist part way through surprising as you're expecting it to just go through through the same tired backwoods horror tropes.

    On the downside the acting is very melodramatic and it just runs way to long. This is a low budget offering so if that's not for you then stay away but I've seen much much worse in this sub-genre. 3/5 stars.

    ★★★★½

    I'm writing this review right after the film ended and man is my mind racing with theories. As with Osgood Perkins second film (I Am The Pretty Thing...) this is a slow burn horror film that places emphasis on atmosphere, sound and score above all else. With both films there is a creeping sense of dread and evil right from the first shot to the very last.

    This is a type of horror that won't appeal to everyone but for…

    Get Out

    ★★★½

    Another mystery/thriller where the build up is way more interesting than the reveal. I was so on board with this film and then with about 30 mins left reveal after reveal just had me rolling my eyes. The performances here are top notch especially from Daniel Kaluuya who plays Chris (great name by the way!) the main character.

    Its not the acting that lets this film down but the ridiculous conceit that we are supposed to believe. To me this…
