• Fatman

    Fatman

    ★★★★

    A kid gets a piece of coal for Christmas and hires a hitman(Walter Goggins) to kill Santa (Mel Gibson). 
    Excellent turns from both Goggins and Gibson, who may just be the coolest Santa ever put on screen.

  • Megan Is Missing

    ★★★

    Pretty disturbing.

  • The Nest

    The Nest

    ★★★½

    Well made film but it didn’t seem to have a point to it.

    ★★★

    Nic Cage is great in a bad movie.

  • Greenland

    Greenland

    ★★★★

    I do love a good end of the world movie and this one ticks all the right boxes and it’s pretty enjoyable but it’s a stark reminder of how stupid Americans are.

  • Unhinged

    Unhinged

    ★★★★

    Russel Crowe is excellent as the demented bad guy but I think I have finally discovered the answer to the age old question “Who ate all the pies”.

  • The Dark and the Wicked

    The Dark and the Wicked

    ★★★★

    Two siblings return to their childhood farm to mourn their dying father. 
    Early on in the film the mother tells her son “It’s not what you think” before committing a shocking and disturbing act which sets the tone for the rest of the film. 
    Bryan Bertino returns to form after the mediocre The Monster. It has the same sense of dread, running throughout, as The Strangers and is disturbing throughout.

  • Come Play

    Larry is a great monster.

    A masterpiece.

  • May the Devil Take You

    May the Devil Take You

    ★★★★

    There is no one around at the moment who does violence and gore as well as Timo Tjahjanto. I have been a fan since I watched Macabre in 2009 but it wasn’t until 2018, when The Night Comes For Us was released, that he rose to the top of his game. 

    May the devil take you is a different genre from his earlier films but he proves how adaptable he is. The film itself is your standard cabin in the woods possession movie reminiscent of The Evil Dead and Demons and although it doesn’t quite reach those heights it’s not far off.
