    ★★★★

    My expectations were a bit off for this movie. I was expecting a straight up horror movie, probably because it is written and directed by Leigh Whannell, but no worries. My fault for not checking the genre beforehand. Having said that, I really enjoyed it. It's an interesting story, has great visuals, really good acting...and all on a $5m budget. Very impressive.

    ★★★½

    This one was a lot of fun. Kinda campy and silly, but also very brutal and gory. Our movies for Shocktober have been pretty intense so far, so this was a nice moment of levity for us. :)

    I was hung over from my birthday night out, and had a hankering for a good documentary. This is one of my go-tos. Such a fascinating and tragic story.

  • Summer of 84

    Summer of 84

    ★★★

    This film really wanted to be Stranger Things. It also takes a turn that didn't seem to fit with the rest of the film. I liked it, but I was also a bit disappointed and underwhelmed.

  • Hostel: Part II

    Hostel: Part II

    ★★★½

    I really don't know why this movie gets such harsh criticism from horror fans. It's a pretty fun flick. Roth does a decent job of continuing the story and tone from the first film, but he also keeps it original enough to keep it interesting. There are also some lighter/funny moments, and it's less gory/torture porny, so I would argue that it is probably more accessible for fans who were put off by the goriness/intensity of the first film. tldr; I liked it. 😊

    ★★★

    Interesting concept and executed pretty well. Didn't realize until the end that Jason Blum was an executive producer.

    Sometimes I'm just in the mood for a good 90s teen horror flick. 😊

    ★★★½

    My acrophobia and claustrophobia had a baby and named it The Descent. Omg...so terrifying. If this movie had clowns, I may have died.

  • The Stepfather

    ★★★½

    Pretty good stalker film. Terry O'Quinn does an amazing job as the title character, and there are some pretty memorable scenes and lines. That opening scene...wow.

  • Killing Ground

    ★★★

    I liked this one. It's pretty brutal, so it's not for the faint of heart. There is also one character who infuriated the hell out of me. Not naming any names, Ian.

  • A Dark Song

    A Dark Song

    ★★★½

    I had to let this one digest a bit before rating it. There were a few too many unresolved loose ends for my taste, but overall I really liked it. There is a scene toward the end that is amazing...no spoilers though. :)

    A very good sequel to one of my favorite horror movies.
