Evan Peters & Barry Keoghan are gifts that keep on giving. I'd probably be entertained just watching them sell me stuff on QVC for hours but thankfully they're making movies (and television) and American Animals is a damn good movie. Can't wait to see what director Bart Layton does next. He's only made two feature films and they're both brilliant.
The Invitation is one of the best films I've seen this year with an impressive central performance from Logan Marshall-Green. Grief and malaise run rampant in the Hollywood Hills turning a dinner party among old friends into an incredibly unnerving and flat out creepy affair. The atmosphere of dread and unease that permeate the proceedings is so thick you can cut it with a serving knife thanks to Karyn Kusama's taught direction & Theodore Shapiro's eerie score. A great slow-burn horror…
