I have a lack for words after finishing The Tale. This film is so singular, so private, it feels like a film made for one person to see, rather than the world to see. It's a story so intimate, so private, it seems out of place to be watching the film. It's a powerful story, albeit a tragic story, but one that many people can understand. Laura Dern transforms herself, showing true vulnerability as Jennifer. Having this film directed by…
First Reformed has shaken me to the core; my soul was touched by this film. This film has left me visibly shaken, emotionally shaken, and spiritually shaken. Never before has a film managed to shake every single aspect of who I am, touch me as I am. Paul Schrader has created a film that is gripping, horrifying, and spiritual. I wish I had more words to describe First Reformed, but I am left without words, without emotion. This film is…
U Turn really is my first dive into Indian cinema. At the theater that I work at, we do occasionally show foreign films, with the theater showing many Indian films. U Turn is the first film that I really looked into, and with an interesting premise, I thought that it would be about time for me to go and see a foreign film at the theater. I was pleasantly surprised with this film, since it took a turn that I…
Poltergeist was a film that I loved to hate. It was one of the rare classic horror films that I couldn't vibe with, a film that didn't offer any scares upon my first watch. Now that several years have passed, I decided to watch this film, in order to prepare for the mazes at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios, which I am lucky enough to be able to attend next month. Now that I've watched it with a new…

What makes this film so intriguing is how complex it is. There are so many layers that are slowly revealed that lead to one of the greatest climaxes of all time. Hitchcock's slow burner slowly gives you the information, making you pay extreme attention to what is going on, or else you are going to be lost.

You're Next proves that horror/thriller films can be stunning with the right people making it.
You're Next is gritty, gory and surprisingly comedic. These elements have been working well together as of late! This film balances everything out and makes sure everything is done at the perfect time.
After watching this again, I actually enjoyed it more! I saw the comedic parts and just saw how amazing the filming was. Those grey tones and brown times are to die for! Hence, You're Next is one of the best horror/thrillers to come out in a long time.
