    2020 Cult of Personality Challenge

    22. Anya Taylor-Joy
    Progress - 28/52

    I picked this selection for Anya Taylor-Joy because I've enjoyed her performances in most things I've seen, but honestly Olivia Cooke is the real reason to watch this one. She was great with her sarcastic comments and stone-faced delivery, and there were some pretty funny moments throughout the film, most of them coming from her. Both ladies worked well together and overall I think it was a pretty solid…

Reading some of the other reviews (still generally positive) I can understand how people felt about certain parts of it, but for me, this is such a great mix of romance and horror. Romance…

    2018 Horror x 52 Challenge

    07. Most Popular Horror Movie On Your Watchlist
    Progress: 16/52

    This one definitely lives up to the hype! I certainly found a movie that I'm going to show to my kids when they're a bit older to try to keep them from sleeping around!

    A slow burn horror that doesn't rely on many jump scares to get you (although I'll admit that there were a couple times it actually did get me), instead relying on…
