T-Meter Title | Year
9/10 73% Lords of Chaos (2019) Straddling black comedy and horror, Lords of Chaos proves that the best -and most horrific-films of the genre are ones that make you bubble over with tears and fear and laughter in one giant contradiction. - Starburst EDIT

7/10 56% Under the Silver Lake (2019) It's a twisty-turvy tale that's both exhausting and maddening, only redeemed when the film dares to self reflexively mock Sam and his self-important quest. - Starburst EDIT

5/10 72% Assassination Nation (2018) What could be something angry and potent about male entitlement and female anger is left feeling cheap; using issues of today to become no more than a viral 110 minute video. - Starburst EDIT

4/5 94% Wildlife (2018) Paul Dano's directorial debut Wildlife lands not with a thud but a slow caress, to be inhaled and ruminated on, its stagnant images billowing into your lungs. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 89% MATANGI/MAYA/M.I.A. (2018) We get a searing intimate portrayal of M.I.A./Maya, with the documentary as her heartfelt diary and manifesto. - CineVue EDIT

5/5 71% Climax (2019) Underneath it all, Climax also evokes the feelings of self-hatred, regret and shame that accompanies this much "fun". - CineVue EDIT

4/5 76% Bad Reputation (2018) Shedding light on a story of 70s rock and roll that is really a study of a turning tide in the fight for gender equality tunnelled through music. - CineVue EDIT

9/10 66% Suspiria (2018) Guadagnino has succeeded in making a Suspiria that is genuinely sinister, a work of art that is terrifying for how well he can penetrate the subconscious fears of fourth wave feminism. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 79% Halloween (2018) By focusing on a female survivor that is no longer the hysterical, screaming final girl, but a woman who can protect herself and her family, Gordon Green offers up a Halloween that, whilst not beating the original... gives us a version for a modern era. - Starburst EDIT

3/10 No Score Yet Cult of Terror (Culto al Terror) (2017) If you are a horror fan, this is not the documentary for you. An obnoxious two hours paying lip service to horror fans without making any real point about them or the genre itself. - Starburst EDIT

2/10 60% Seeds (2018) It is not a shocking film, nor a particularly immoral one. It is just, sadly, a boring one. - Starburst EDIT

2/10 No Score Yet Heretiks (2018) The film's setting fails to evoke the same type of English rural folk horror that it promises, instead wanting the audience to take it seriously when it can't even take itself seriously. - Starburst EDIT

9/10 100% Wolfman's Got Nards (2018) Watching these films - and this documentary - generates the type of joy we only felt as kids, as well as evoking the warm fuzzy feeling that nostalgia brings. - Starburst EDIT

5/10 75% Field Guide to Evil (2018) Overly long, with only a few stories working coherently, but elicits a cosy, Tales from the Crypt fireplace feel. - Starburst EDIT

9/10 88% Braid (2019) A gorgeously vibrant and yet shockingly violent bourgeois horror-comedy that relishes in its three female leads, proving that femininity can be deadly. - Starburst EDIT

9/10 50% Incident In a Ghost Land (Ghostland) (2018) Ghostland manages to render conventional jump scares and plot twists original and fresh, instead of worn out. - Starburst EDIT

10/10 89% Possum (2018) Possum excels in ways some horror doesn't. It strikes the nerve between horror and emotion, between wanting to cry and wanting to scream. - Starburst EDIT

4/5 82% What Keeps You Alive (2018) Anderson switches with ease from loving, innocent girlfriend to straight-faced psychotic, and both actors bounce off one another in their roles - Allen succeeds in securing empathy from an audience, with a face of earnestness and naïveté. - CineVue EDIT

71% Summer of '84 (2018) However, the characters - stereotypes we have come to love in these films - are nothing more than that. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 83% The Most Assassinated Woman in the World (La femme la plus assassinée du monde) (2018) Most Assassinated has strong ideas that slowly fade as the film goes on. - CineVue EDIT
