4/5 85% Big Fish & Begonia (2018) As heavy and occasionally confusing as things get, there are wonderful moments of levity and eccentricity.‐ SciFiNow

2/5 15% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) If you're looking for a disposable teen horror, Truth Or Dare could be the Friday night nonsense you're looking for, but you can absolutely do better.‐ SciFiNow

2/5 50% Rampage (2018) Rampage can't pull it off.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) You can't deny the film's effectiveness. Krasinski has crafted a very scary and surprisingly affecting horror movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat.‐ SciFiNow

2/5 43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) If it were a standalone film it would get that third star, but as a Pacific Rim sequel it's disappointing.‐ SciFiNow

3/5 49% Tomb Raider (2018) This film clearly aims to be the first in a new franchise, and, on the strength of this, it will be‐ SciFiNow

4/5 73% Mom and Dad (2018) Mom And Dad never quite crosses a line but it definitely enjoys getting close to it.‐ SciFiNow

5/5 87% Annihilation (2018) That verdant blend of Giger and Carpenter is fantastic, but what will really stay with you is the effect all this has on the characters.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 84% Mohawk (2018) It is a satisfying thriller but, for the most part, Mohawk wants to show us the hopelessness and cruelty of this conflict and this sorry chapter of American history.‐ SciFiNow

1/5 No Score Yet Black Creek (2017) Horror fans have seen all of this before, and they've seen it done better.‐ SciFiNow

5/5 92% The Shape of Water (2017) Creating a convincing romance between a woman and a fishman is probably the film's biggest challenge, but sensitive performances ... make it not just believable but compelling.‐ SciFiNow

1/5 26% Bright (2017) Bright wants to say something about racial prejudice and it wants to be a badass R-rated genre movie. Those good intentions are evident but the end result is a two hour-long, tedious, uninspired slog.‐ SciFiNow

5/5 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) The emotional pay-offs are huge, the visuals are stunning, the performances are brilliant and, even as it eagerly explores the darkness, The Last Jedi never loses sight of its heart.‐ SciFiNow

3/5 57% The Unseen (2017) The final act stumbles once or twice, but it's engaging, tense, the conclusion is earned and affecting, and [Jasmine] Hyde's superb performance carries it through any wobbles.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 94% Most Beautiful Island (2017) It's so exciting to see a film with such a firm grip on its audience's collective throat.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2017
3/5 40% Justice League (2017) There's a sense of laying the groundwork, with new characters to be introduced, new attitudes to establish, and a new team to bring to life. On those three counts, the film gets the job done.‐ SciFiNow

2/5 13% Geostorm (2017) If you think you know what you're getting with Geostorm, well, you're probably right. It's big, it's stupid, it's got people outrunning enormous weather events, and it's bad in most of the ways that matter.‐ SciFiNow

1/5 8% The Snowman (2017) While there is a myriad of issues to pick apart, the most disappointing is that there is simply no atmosphere. ‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2017
4/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Blade Runner 2049 is excellent. Hampton Fancher and Michael Green's script continues to push the themes and questions of the original and finds a new angle from which to do so. ‐ SciFiNow

3/5 85% It (2017) IT is pure popcorn horror: crowdpleasing, gruesome and guaranteed to make you jump. It just may not crawl under your skin like you want it to.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
4/5 74% The Limehouse Golem (2017) Whether you guess the identity of the Golem or not, this is a richly rewarding riff on penny dreadful horrors with a real wit and bite to it, and it's a wonderfully chilling treat.‐ SciFiNow

2/5 16% The Dark Tower (2017) It's a truly rare thing to come out of a summer blockbuster wishing it were longer, but in its rush to get down to the bare essentials, The Dark Tower loses too much of what makes it unique.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 91% A Ghost Story (2017) It's a little inaccessible, perhaps, with long sequences of reflective silence, but A Ghost Story has a real emotional power that is sincerely haunting.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
3/5 70% Annabelle: Creation (2017) It's well-directed, it's well-acted, and it's genuinely creepy while offering some great jump scares too. ‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2017
4/5 76% The Ghoul (2017) The Ghoul proves to be a dark, atmospheric and surprisingly moving portrayal of a crumbling psyche.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
4/5 88% It Comes At Night (2017) The film's wilful ambiguity will doubtless prove frustrating for many, but this is a truly nightmarish tale, as real people in a terrible situation make snap decisions that lead to devastating consequences. It's gripping, terrifying, and heartbreaking.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2017
5/5 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) This is a brilliant technical achievement but it's more than that. It's a potent, political and moving work of SF with a stunning performance from Andy Serkis.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
2/5 16% The Mummy (2017) There are one or two fun moments, particularly when Boutella gets to cut loose, but she's a monster in dire need of more screentime and a much better film.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2017
3/5 69% Brain Damage (1995) It's the mix that so many other low-budget schlock-hound filmmakers have gone for, but so few make it work. It's imperfect, tasteless, but hugely watchable.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2017
4/5 76% Phenomena (Creepers) (1985) Phenomena may not be as consistent as Argento's masterpieces but it's frequently fantastic and deserves a reappraisal.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted May 31, 2017
5/5 94% The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) (2017) It's a simple and profound story that is both intimate and universal. This is a beautiful film that must be seen.‐ SciFiNow

3/5 67% Alien: Covenant (2017) It's a well-made, well-acted monster movie with some interesting ideas that should hold up to repeat viewings, and while its uneven second half stops it from being a complete success, it's a lot of horrible fun.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted May 8, 2017
3/5 52% The Belko Experiment (2017) As grisly entertainment, it works, and it does have a mean bite, but it doesn't quite live up to its potential.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
5/5 91% Raw (2017) It's savage but heartfelt, gruesome but wickedly funny, and as Justine is forced to find her own way through this nightmare, it's moving too. This is essential viewing.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
4/5 91% A Dark Song (2017) Although Gavin makes us wait for the horror elements, they are highly effective once they arrive. ‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
4/5 86% The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) There are some problems, but this is an intelligent, unpredictable and very well-made horror mystery that subverts the expected genre clichés and really does get under your skin.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2017
2/5 44% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Ghost In The Shell certainly isn't dire, but it is dull. ‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2017
4/5 75% The Void (2017) The Void is a creepy, tense and gory tribute to the horror master [Lovecraft] that offers invention and wit beyond mere homage, and we recommend it.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Mar 28, 2017
3/5 76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) Although it doesn't reach the heights of Edwards' Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island works hard to bring us something new, and it does deliver some pretty impressive punches.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
3/5 41% A Cure For Wellness (2017) [An] overripe, overblown, gorgeous oddity.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
4/5 93% Logan (2017) Jackman taps into the darkest elements of the character but never loses the humanity, and if this is his last outing, he's gone out with a perfect, heart-breaking portrayal full of rage and grief.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
4/5 99% Get Out (2017) This is an excellent horror that is gripping, scary, witty and timely, and it's got something to say. Even if you don't think all of it comes off, you will be talking about it.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
3/5 36% Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017) The B-movie thrills on offer here are solid. The action, the fights, the jump scares...they're all entertaining, and there's a long-serving genre heroine who's finally allowed some evolution and a bit of closure.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
2/5 7% Rings (2017) It's far too long at 102 minutes, it doesn't follow through on any of its interesting ideas, it's never scary and, most unforgivably, it's boring. You can skip this one.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
4/5 94% Prevenge (2017) This is Lowe's showcase. She gives a predictably excellent central performance, and it's exciting to see a film that's this confident, bold and entertaining.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
2/5 23% The Bye Bye Man (2017) To call it a disaster would be unfair as there is some spooky, cheesy fun to be had, but the plotting is somehow both slow and rushed, the writing is poor, and the performances aren't great.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2017
3/5 60% I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House (2016) It's a difficult film to love then, but it is beautifully made and boasts a superb central performance. There are wonderful chills to be found in the chilliness.‐ SciFiNow

3/5 82% Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016) We didn't think anything was going to get us excited about a sequel to 2014's crushingly routine Blumhouse horror Ouija, but we didn't reckon on the addition of director Mike Flanagan and writer Jeff Howard.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2016
4/5 92% I Am Not a Serial Killer (2016) The pacing and subject matter may alienate some viewers, but this is the kind of film that deserves to find a cult audience. It's a chilling, surprising and sensitive horror that you won't forget in a hurry.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
4/5 86% A Monster Calls (2017) Even though it's roaring its message in your face, it's a message that is undeniably important, incredibly moving and honestly delivered.‐ SciFiNow
