It: Chapter Two Review

I’ll be the first to admit that the first IT film (the 2017 one that is not the first first one) took me by surprise. As someone who is often left cold by horror films and their often predictable tropes, it drew me in with its immersive setting and focus on a core nucleus of…

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Review

Guillermo Del Toro has certainly had a good few years recently. On the back of winning his first Best Picture Oscar for Shape of Water, suddenly the outlook was very rosy for mr Del Toro.

There really seems to be no middle ground with Stephen King adaptations, they’re either very, very good (Green Mile,…

Us Review

I must admit I missed Get Out when it was in cinemas, horror really isn’t a genre I follow too closely so it completely passed me by. By the time I got around to watching it, I had already been surprised by a few horror films and was astonished by its depth and social commentary,…
