    A Simple Favor


    This is basically a slicker higher budgeted Lifetime movie and I’m ok with that. Just wish Paul Feig had cut out all the tonally-jarring jokes and played it as a straight twisty thriller.

  • Searching



    Another of those Found FaceTime Movies (© Paul Doherty 2018) a la UNFRIENDED but this time the camera is active rather than passive - the film utilises Ken Burns Effect pans and zooms to draw focus and build tension. Really effective taut thriller.

    A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge


    A teenage boy struggles with his own homosexuality. Freddy Krueger turns up for a bit.

    The Haunting of Molly Hartley

    More 'Netflixploitation' and very dreary nonsense at that. There's no haunting, no characterisation of any kind, just uninspired nonsense regarding a deal with the devil. Whatever Happened To Rosemary's Baby Part II: She Went To Prep School And Bored Everyone To Death In The Process.
