    Demoniac

    In a film with only 76 minutes runtime, it’s frustrating that we waste the first ten minutes listening to the young Irish YouTuber witter on inanely. 
    It’s like eavesdropping on a teenagers video-call. Annoying and dull. At least she’s pretty (although those eyebrows do nothing for me)

    Are we about to encounter a whole generation of millennials who are able to talk for 15 minutes + about nothing, interspersed with pointless observations about their hair or eyebrows?

    The Evil Dead

    ★★★★★

    Whenever I think of the Evil Dead, it’s not that tree incident, nor is it the pencil in the Achilles for poor Linda, it’s not even the splatterific quantities of gore that’s chucked around, it’s how creepy those chains sounded as they struggled to keep Demon #1 in the cellar.
