    Artifacts

    This one had a lot of potential but falls flat.

    A woman (Mary Stockley) realizes her friends are being murdered.

    She discovers that their doubles are murdering them and that they have implants in themselves.

    Aliens, a military experiment, drugs, all in her head, what is going on?

    OK tension early but the movie didn't really flow well.

    A long chase scene between Mary and her double had some nauseating camera work that lost me for the rest of the movie.

    The Thirst

    ★½

    A poor Near Dark ripoff with a bunch of decent actors doing a horrible job.

    A girl (Clare Kramer - super cute) is dying and a lady vamp (Clare Kramer) decides to turn her and make her join her dysfunctional family.

    ★★★★

    This remake actually works. I was prepared to dislike it as I really enjoyed the original with Noomi Rapace, but Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig did an amazing job. Loaded with some great actors this version did a very nice job of pacing. A brutal thriller, that has some very graphic elements attached to it. I loved the Bryan Ferry song that ran at the end of the credits, "Is Your Love Strong Enough". I originally heard that in Legend and it is a fantastic song.

    Hereditary

    ★★★★★

    This movie scared the hell out of me and that is pretty tough to do as I am a jaded horror aficionado.

    A family of 4 is dealing with the death of their grandmother/mother.

    Almost immediately, weird things begin to happen.

    Watching the movie unfold is chilling at times and the last quarter is horrifying.

    Toni Collette (mom), Milly Shapiro (daughter), Alex Wolff (son) and Gabriel Byrne (father) seem like a normal family at first.

    I was reading some notes…
