T-Meter Title | Year
86% Sea Fever (2020) That drama doesn't always have much backbone, but the stakes increase quickly as the terror escalates, and there's rarely a dull moment. - Polygon EDIT

91% The Invisible Man (2020) [Writer-director Leigh Whannell] seems more interested in the mechanics of torture than in giving the very real emotional framework of abuse its due. - Polygon EDIT

97% Harpoon (2019) The greatest strength of the script is how the emotional torture and, well, torture torture motivate each other, so each moment of escalation is backed by a new revelation or secret. - Polygon EDIT

41% The Prodigy (2019) The Prodigy wants to capture the grief-stricken gravitas of Hereditary, but it isn't willing to commit to the acts of brutality it needs to earn that intensity. - Polygon EDIT

100% Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror (2019) Offers a timely and engaging perspective on black representation in American cinema. - Polygon EDIT

51% Escape Room (2019) Even though the characters are broadly painted, it's easy to root for them, which makes the puzzles - and their violent payoffs - actually matter. - Polygon EDIT

65% Suspiria (2018) The sharp modern choreography is entrancing and adds a physicality to the magic that gave it impact, even more so than in the original. - Polygon EDIT
