    The Nun

    ★★★

    You get a spin off! YOU gets a spin off! EVERYONE GETS A SPIN OFF!!


    As The Conjuring Universe grows with it parent movies, the offshoots are beginning to come quick and fast with two Annabelle movies, an upcoming The Crooked Man movie and now The Nun (still waiting for The Clap Game full-feature). Having made her full debut in 2016’s The Conjuring 2, the demon Valak – aka The Nun – has risen in prominence within the franchise and…

    The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    ★★★★

    Compelling, rich and deep.

    That’s just Colin Farrell’s beard.


    Reuniting after The Lobster, Yorgos Lanthimos and Farrell deliver another strange blast of arty bizarreness with The Killing of a Sacred Deer – a movie that features no deer. Blending in themes of revenge, Ancient Greek mythology, fate and morality (for a few examples), the movie takes you on a strange trip and leaves you feeling strangely numb afterwards.


    It’s a deliciously weird movie. But also a pretty solid one too.…
