    Channel Zero: Candle Cove

    ★★★

    A pretty steady conveyer belt of surreal, creepy images. But it’s weighed down by a plodding story and uninspired writing. The cast is pretty forgettable except for Fiona Shaw who gives this her all. Like most creepy pasta stuff it’s unnerving but mostly hollow.

    Also if you’re making a creepy pasta anthology show maybe isn’t in the best taste to have your first season be about children being compelled to be violent.

    ★★★½

    A gritty and visceral neo-giallo that directly confronts the violence men do to women. A bloody, intense movie that has an axe to grind.

    Hereditary

    ★★★★★

    A terrifying black hearted portrait of a family rotting from the inside out. I love how this movie uses negative space and architecture to create tension. Similarly the sound design and use of silence is masterful.
