A Simplistic Review: The Nightingale

What happens when you take “The Revenant,” “Last House on the Left,” and anchor it with the BRUTAL truth of what the British were really doing while colonizing other lands in the 1800s, well you get “The Nightingale.” Jennifer Kent is relentless is depicting the horrors of the times...

Alphabetic-Horror: Deep Red

A lot of Dario Argento’s work, pre-Suspiria, kind of gets lost in its own history. DEEP RED is the perfect blend of old school giallo, slasher, and lives up to the name DEEP RED.

Alphabetic-Horror: Critters 2: The Main Course

I guess it’s weird to enjoy CRITTERS 2 over “Critters” but I’m that guy. The gore is there, it takes place during Easter and you can count on one hand how many horror flicks take place over the day when Jesus came back. Plus! You have a giant ball...

A Simplistic Review: IT Chapter 2

Even after all these years, there’s still a scent of cheesiness to ABC’s version of “Stephen King’s IT.” Aside from the performance of Tim Curry, part two of 1990’s miniseries lacked the overall creepiness of part one and just seemed like a rush job. Luckily you don’t have to...

A Simplistic Review: Ready or Not

I’m not here for a long time, I’m here for a good time, and that might be one of the reasons why I like “Ready of Not” so much. Samara Weaving is a star and a continues a great lineage of Scream Queens that came before her. Shoot, when...

A Simplistic Review: Once Upon a Time In…Hollywood

  As you get older you come to TERMS with many things. One, getting older; Two, time is running out to leave a mark on the world; and maybe even three is the fact that people are simply waiting in the wings to call you out for being a...

A Simplistic Review: Spider-Man: Far From Home

I’ve certainly been sitting on this review for a while, but after a fair amount of thought, it was time to say what I think about “Spider-Man: Far From Home.” After the grandeur of “Endgame” the end of MCU’s Phase Three just feels SMALL. This is of course a...
