    Boogeyman 2

    ★★½

    A slight improvement over the original. Ginger Snaps Two’s (2004) position as supreme sequel set in a psychiatric hospital remains secure.

    Lily Sullivan’s strong performance and moody cinematography make this slow burn eerie thriller worth your time.

    Sadly, not as much fun as I was expecting considering the likable cast and how much of a sucker I am for cursed object horror.

  • The Haunting

    The Haunting

    ★★★

    I haven’t seen The Haunting (1963), but this version has more in common with The Haunted Mansion franchise than The Haunting of Hill House (2018).

    That isn’t a criticism! The Haunting’s winning star cast and beautiful location makes for an entertaining haunted house movie experience. 

    And the questionable CGI is charming rather than offensive.
