    How many contemporary horrors are there that inject a heavy dose of freshness to the genre formerly known as found footage... Rob Savage's second feature film is not the first Web 2.0/iPhone made thing, but it is one of the best because of the brilliantly energetic performance from Annie Hardy playing a "band car styleee" version of herself, a risky (but fun!) amalgam of right-wing vlogger and anarchic troll: Is she making fun of Trump supporters?

    Which is worse: redneck BS or woke propaganda? Doesn't really matter. Leatherface couldn’t care less about politics. And that's a good thing.

But fun from start to finish, unexpectedly nostalgic at times. And the fact that this sequel offends all the right people (left-wing and right-wing!) makes it all the more enjoyable. Just like old times!

    First, I'm generally sick of kids in horror. Second, I'm like super-skeptical when a genre flick garners high praise from all-round. So I was quite mixed about this. But in all honesty, VVitch truly deserves much of its hype.

    From the first frame I was entranced by the atmospheric blackness. More than just a horror film, VVitch is an experience: A descent into the darkness. Pure and uncompromised. Ambiguous and absorbing. Simple but brutally tense. Even the soundtrack is stellar…
