7/10 65% Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Annabelle Comes Homeis a simple story with strong actors and meaty scares. - EDIT

8/10 64% Child's Play (2019) I think that because Child's Play carries that title, a lot of purists will go in hating it. But honestly, 2019's Child's Play is a lot of fun. - EDIT

6/10 54% Ma (2019) Ma is an entertaining film (though it did feel long, despite being less than 100 minutes), but don't go in hoping for a twisty story or shocking moments. There just weren't any. - EDIT

6.5/10 30% The Curse of La Llorona (2019) The Curse of La Llorona is a solid little flick. It probably won't make waves; it probably won't impress die-hard horrorhounds. It may make more of an impression on someone who was raised hearing stories of La Llorona. - EDIT

8.5/10 57% Pet Sematary (2019) Directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer create a creepy masterpiece with Pet Sematary. It is dark, it is brooding, it is foreboding. It takes the story of a dead child and a family's heartbreak to an even bleaker place. - EDIT

91% Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018) I left the theater with a happy, peaceful feeling. I cannot remember the last movie that gave me that feeling, and I cannot wait to see it again. - Syfy Wire EDIT

7/10 54% The First Purge (2018) Doesn't necessarily make for a bad movie, in this politically alienated time we are currently living in, it does leave me worrying that it will deepen the racial and socio-economic divide in this country. - EDIT

2.5/5 29% Annabelle (2014) I will say that Annabelle offered some good scares. Nothing astonishingly new or unique, but effective - which is surprisingly hard to do, it seems. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

2.5/5 21% Into The Storm (2014) Into the Storm is not a good movie; it is not meant to be. But as a disaster flick, it is below average. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

1/4 6% Ouija (2014) Ouija never goes beyond what it obviously is: a quick, cheap Halloween throwaway that hopes to sell as many board games as it does tickets. Do not fall for it. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

6.5/10 42% A Cure For Wellness (2017) What starts as an intense, bizarre, creepy haunted medical horror is thrown to the wayside in favor of more obvious horror motifs. - EDIT

44% Pandemic (2016) A well-paced flick with good action and gore. - EDIT

44% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) PPZ is an interesting concept, in that it takes what is often viewed as stuffy "chick lit" and gives it something for modern audiences to identify with. It's just not enough. - EDIT

95% Creed (2015) There is nothing bad about Creed, but there is nothing special that makes it stand out. It is literally a beat-for-beat reboot of the original Rocky. - CraveOnline EDIT
