    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…

    The Fan

    ★★★★½

    The Fan looks to be a highly obscure early 80s semi-slasher flick with a mixed reception, and for that, I have no idea why. It brings on a pretty heavy and mostly unnerving atmosphere and stays set around stalker fan culture in a time way before the concept of social media made it standard. Lauren Bacall is stunning, of course, and following this story from the perspective of the deranged Michael Biehn was super intense. Deserves more praise, cause as a whole, this was a gorgeous production.

    Class of 1999

    ★★★½

    Class of 1999 is a decent follow-up and science fiction tinged continuation of the high school horrors we got in Mark L. Lester's Class of 1984. Still has a bleak streak, but in a different way, and the action gets pretty creative and exhilarating. In some ways, a step down, but still good enough, and pairing that guy from Dream Warriors and that girl from Fright Night Part 2 was a very good decision in terms of casting. Nervous to see what the last in the trilogy brings.

    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…
