    ★★★★★

    As a long time fan of the Predator films, my expectations for Prey was HIGHLY exceeded.

    Beautiful shots. Intense action. Great effects and a slightly more elevated and frightening version of the creature effects for the Predator.

    Lead actress Amber Midthunder, (Naru) was delightful to watch. Believably fierce and captivating. I found myself cheering for her and actually applauding at the end.

    I found this one of the most, if not THE most, exciting installment in the franchise. Definitely worth the watch. Great movie experience.

    Well done 👏

    ★★★★★

    I really enjoyed this movie experience. We see a different, darker side to Ethan Hawke that gave me chills.

    Story was written well, (of course- It's Joe Hill) and it flowed well.

    Lots of moments of intensity balanced with a little comedic relief by The Grabber's younger brother.

    Some nice creepy scenes with a redeeming ending.

    Highly recommend 👌

    ★★★★★

    Excellent documentary. Very comprehensive, it'll even make you look at Cannibal Holocaust in a slightly different way.

    Also gave me some new movies to add to my watchlist.

    If you love the found footage genre, you'll want to check out this documentary.

  • The Sadness

    The Sadness

    ★★★★½

    Total gore fest! This movie gives Peter Jackson's Braindead/Dead-Alive a run for its money in its usage of fake blood.

    Truly terrifying! It was so sadistic in parts I had to keep pausing this one. There were a few scenes that ABSOLUTELY disturbed me.

    Had a hard time keeping my mouth closed in this one! And trust me- I LOVE gore.

    Absolutely INSANE ride. A must-see for any true gore fan.

    ★★★★

    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

    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

    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

    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.

    Jakob's Wife

    ★★★★

    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.
