    Candyman

    ★★★½

    Visually impressive sequel/reboot that wisely avoids the lazy pandering and franchise worship of similar legasequel properties like Halloween (2018) and Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022). Some of the writing can be a little on the nose - scenes that are meant to evoke chills can be somewhat silly - but the spirit of the original Clive Barker adaptation is here and the angry political element gives the drama some weight.

  • Butterfly Kisses

    Butterfly Kisses

    ★★★

    Neat horror mocumentary that also functions as a satirical deconstruction of the found footage genre’s tropes and contrivances - without ever falling back on parody.

    ★★★★★

    Incomparable practical effects aside: The Thing is also a taut, impeccably crafted claustrophobic nightmare with a huge cast of likeable characters, beautiful cinematography and a haunting, influential score. Horror perfection.

  • Midsommar

    Midsommar

    ★★★★½

    Melancholy modern classic folk horror with perfectly pitched and understated performances, a terrifying, almost sickening mood of joyful celebration mixed with brutal sacrifice and a heart wrenching soundtrack. Summer horror perfection.
