    The Monster (2016) -


    Liked it a lot. A very angst driven movie early on that transitions nicely into a tense and atmospheric horror flick.
    It does a nice job of setting itself aside from the usual fare, and certainly isn't the standard horror trope.

    The Monster is basically a character study serving a dual purpose. It not only effectively conveys the ways people tend to process, rationalize, and cope with the harshness and realities of the monsters we do know - (pain, sorrow, vices, family dysfunctions, etc.) ... but also on how we tackle the fears and unknowns that lurk within the deep recesses associative of the monsters we don't know... regardless whether they be real or figurative.

    Split, Shamalamadingdong's new flick.

    I actually loved it! Very tense and suspenseful movie that is done very well. McAvoy is amazing in this. Definitely recommend it.

    Blood Brothers, 2015. 7,5/10






    Really liked this film, two brothers think they are highly intelligent and better than everyone on the planet and think they can commit murder and get away with it, just because. The character Charles was fantastic, actually they were both good but Charles won my affection right away. It's original title was Divine Tragedies.

    SiREN - 5/10 - Not bad. Solid extension of the short, but nothing fantastic.
