    ★★★★

    A rare good gun film. *Really* good in places to be fair.

    Netflix performing miracles at this point.

    ★★★

    Threw this on expecting zombies and this wasn't zombies. It's a horror film at least so I got the genre right!

    There was a great jolt in this. One of those jumps which is so well done and fairly surprising that I was buzzing from it still a few scenes later. I haven't missed the cinema at all since I last went but I did think how fun a loud crowd would have been for that.

    The film is a decent Babadookian entry. Strays from the path enough times to stand out.

    ★★★★½

    One of the best found-footage films, maybe even THE best. Its secrets are fairly simple. Make it scary and move it along at a brisk pace. This film is never allowed to drag and we are invited to join the dots like the characters up to the genuinely chilling finale. Watching it with headphones on last night was a pant-soilingly good experience.

    ★★★★★

    The greatest remake ever.

    The best Rick Moranis film there has been.

    All other musicals pale into insignificance.
