    Fresh

    ★★★★★

    Fresh was my most anticipated film from this year's Sundance lineup (after Final Cut pulled out), and had me feeling uneasy for its entire run. I understand why some aren't going to like this because it bounces back and forth with black comedy and disgusting bits of violence while highlighting casual misogyny and other issues in the modern dating scene, which is a messy combination to even begin to think about.

    Scream

    ★★★★★

    Scream has been my favorite film franchise for well over half of my lifetime, and if you asked me just two years ago, I would've said you were crazy to think that the main series would ever come back to the big screen. Truth of the matter is, Wes Craven's last film being Scream 4 ended his directorial career on a high note, but left the door open just wide enough for new creatives to fulfill his legacy down the…

    Night of the Demon

    ★★★★

    Night of the Demon is mean as fuck. Seriously evil spirit running through this little Sasquatch movie, but maybe that's what makes it as good as it is? Goes from silly to scary to absolutely bonkers and the plot is split up in a million directions with some odd storytelling decisions. Cast sells every bit of it though, and the kills are pretty great for where this falls in the creature feature category. Probably would've rated it higher if there…

  • The Church

    The Church

    ★★★★

    Went ahead with The Church tonight, which allegedly started out as Demons 3 before being rewritten and reworked into what Michele Soavi and Dario Argento put out in 1989. Definitely feels like it belongs in that universe, with plenty of Italian Gothic imagery and a supernatural horror tale that was intriguing from start to end. Not going to be for everyone, but it worked well enough for me; cast was decent, atmosphere was intense, and the demon activity was solid. Moody as hell, and feels quite unique when thinking about this side of the industry as a whole. Looking forward to a rewatch.

    Fear Street: 1666

    ★★★★★

    Fear Street Part Three brings us back to the last film's jaw-dropper of an ending with the best of the series' cast in brand new roles. I've never been the biggest fan of folk horror, but this works; the switch from slasher to supernatural distinguishes this chapter from the last two as the town grows sinister, effectively keeping you guessing what the evil of Fear Street actually is. As the witch hunt begins, so does the feeling of dread, with…

    Candyman

    ★★★★★

    Candyman was a gem for the 90s audience, and Candyman will be another gem today. I can't put into words how surreal this viewing experience was, sitting in a jam packed theater for the first time in a long time with franchise fans new and old. This cast was magnificent; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Teyonah Parris, and Colman Domingo effectively bringing the urban legend back to life, with themes surrounding race and social class utilized in the best way since the…
