    ★★★★

    Ducournau's first feature length. Where it all begins...

    A good revenge story with a lot of symbolism which I've grown to expect from Ducournau's films. One of the things I love about her movies.

    This has a lot of humor in it, as well as the serious subject matter of eating disorders and bullying amongst women.

    Not as graphic as her later work but I believe this originally aired on TV. Can be found on YouTube. Highly recommend to get a basis or understanding of what Julia Ducournau is about.

    ★★★★★

    The epitome of J-Horror!
    What a fun ride! So much gore, violence and copious amounts of streaming blood spray.

    Seriously imaginative, with a hint of Cronenberg's eXistenZ.

    I loved this movie, It's going in my Top 12 gore films. Really well done! A MUST SEE for any true gore fan!

    ★★★★★

    Beautifully brutal. A MUST SEE. I just watched this Canadian masterpiece and I am shook!

    Fantastic performances by the two leads. Great story, practical effects and makeup were very noteworthy.

    If you're looking for something visceral and disturbing, this is a film for you.

    Expect to be haunted by this one.

    Wow.

    As someone who has suffered with sleep paralysis, I can say this is a pretty accurate description.

    Interestingly creepy watch.

    They Live in The Grey

    ★★★★

    I love a good supernatural horror.

    This film delivered in atmosphere, storyline, acting and creep factor.

    Gave me serious Sixth Sense/Anything For Jackson vibes.

    It's a dreary setting for a couple, Claire and Peter, dealing with grief. The Vangs had two children but lost their son to a hit and run.

    Claire has kept her grief and guilt to herself. She's also hidden her clairvoyant abilities from her husband. This causes a breakdown in their marriage.

    Claire sees the tormented…

    Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning

    ★★★★★

    I didn't think I would enjoy this installment. It's a different story, same characters but it's the 1800s. A lot of horses.

    BUT...

    First, I loved how they incorporated Canadian history into the film. It's also visually stunning to watch. Beautiful cinematography, fantastic atmosphere.

    Ginger and Brigitte are on their own riding across Central Canada near the Hudson Bay. Every year fur traders go there to trade their wares and grab supplies, in 1815- they never returned.

    An old lady…

    Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed

    ★★★★★

    Fantastic story! Ginger Snaps is definitely my favorite of the Werewolf movies and one of my ALL-TIME favourite trilogies.

    Acting top notch. Brilliantly written and filmed. Iconic characters and in my opinion, the best creature/make up effects.

    So satisfying on so many levels. Fast paced and great gore.

    I love the juxtaposition of Brigitte transforming into a wolf- into a woman and coming into her own carnal sexuality. I love the symbolism in these movies.

    Classic.

    ★★★★

    Great throwback to 80s horror. Lots of blood!

    Great dynamic between Larry Fessenden and Barbara Crampton. As the pastor and the dutiful pastor's wife.

    Crampton reminds us that women's sexuality does not expire and she's still smoking hot!

    Total pleasure to watch despite a few weak story spots.

    ★★½

    M'eh. A few decent gore scenes, a "different take" on the traditional Werewolf story but the story was lackluster.

    I expected more from you France...

    C'était de la merde. 💩

  • Let the Right One In

    Let the Right One In

    ★★★★★

    A modern young love story.

    Oskar, a young pre teen boy, lonely, neglected and bullied meets Eli. She's bold, courageous, strong and also a vampire.

    The two form a loving bond. Offering one another the comfort, love and acceptance they both so desperately desire.

    Beautifully filmed, a unique take on the Vampire story. Brooding, gloomy, often brutal yet kind of romantic.

    One of THE BEST Vampire movies out there. One I keep returning to.

    Just rewatched this movie for the 5th time!

    Still looking for all those Easter Eggs. I forgot how much I loved it.

    Brilliant 👏

  • Vamp

    Vamp

    ★★★½

    3 young college kids take a trip to find the best stripclub. Settling on the "After Dark" club they embark on their journey.

    A near car accident leaves them spinning and upon stopping, it's like they're in a different world all of a sudden.

    A horror/dark comedy. The town they're in basically shuts down after dark. The local barman covers himself in crosses at sundown.

    The town folk, there's something off...
    OK, look- it's a town of vampires with a…
