    Scary True Stories: Realm of Spectres

    ★★★

    Silly fun. Here’s my breakdown:

    Damn those cordless phones are huge.


    This feels like Are You Afraid of the Dark. And that’s fine with me.


    The first story is a silly little intro.


    The Friend at the Stairwell story is so good. The creepy factor and the artistic choices are A+.


    The sleep paralysis one was TRIPPY. Holy shit.


    That weave is out of control.

    I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House

    ★★★★

    Not a whole lot happens, but I was definitely stressed out the entire time. It’s quiet, it’s minimalist, and you keep expecting something - anything - to appear in the great wide doorways or windows or empty space and startle you. There’s not much to the story, but it remains gorgeous all around and is enough to make you keep the lights on.

    I don't know what I just watched, but it was glorious.

    An absolutely wonderful breath of fresh air as far as Tim Burton's films are concerned. It might not be Ed Wood, but it still proves to be an intriguing enough biopic. Where the pacing and script sometimes falter, the great performances by the cast as well as the gorgeous aesthetics definitely pick up the slack.
