8/10 77% The Old Guard (2020) The Old Guard proves that aged dogs can learn plenty of new tricks, and could be Netflix's go-to action franchise if sequels are as good as this beginning. - We Got This Covered EDIT

2.5/5 33% Metamorphosis (2020) It's an overlong, chore-like possession story rooted in recycled structures despite an otherwise intriguing shapeshifter hook. - Flickering Myth EDIT

.5/5 81% Homewrecker (2019) A sub-ninety minute hostage scenario with meager means, worse execution, and a jumbled statement that's not even worth vocalizing by the end. - Flickering Myth EDIT

2.5/5 71% Followed (2020) Followed turns its camera on social media horrors as filmmakers have since the techno-horror boom around Unfriended's success (or earlier with The Den, etc.), without furthering subgenre conversations. - Flickering Myth EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Baby Frankenstein (2018) What if I told you Baby Frankenstein is a quirky adolescent rom-com with a dosage of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, and it's befuddlingly sweet? - Flickering Myth EDIT

1.5/5 No Score Yet Aquaslash (2020) This summertime bummer can't even live up to water-park-horror classics such as [checks notes] Piranha 3DD. - Flickering Myth EDIT

3.5/5 67% Yummy (2020) A "tasty" zombie comedy with a buffet of gory treats to behold and even nastier pitch-black humor at the expense of those who want to live forever. - Flickering Myth EDIT

3/5 89% Two Heads Creek (2019) I'm sure the film's comedic stylings won't tickle everyone's funny bone, but meat-grinder gore certainly doesn't shortchange. - Flickering Myth EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2020
.5/5 No Score Yet WrestleMassacre (2020) It's the kind of trash horror that slobbers over objectified women and gory kills. No thought placed elsewhere, no value added. No thanks. - Flickering Myth EDIT

3/10 40% You Should Have Left (2020) You Should Have Left is a perfect example of how "forgettable" horror cinema is somehow more tedious than something that goes out in a blaze of failed ambition. - We Got This Covered EDIT

2/5 20% The Candy Witch (2020) There are some sugary-sticky kills to behold, but the overall narrative is a mess of generic haunted house beats with no creative identity. - Flickering Myth EDIT

3.5/5 72% The King of Staten Island (2020) Davidson's live-and-let-whatever vibe is perfection when it comes to playing characters like Scott Carlin. - Flickering Myth EDIT

2.5/5 67% Black Ops (2020) A time-loop thriller like Blood Punch is about different outcomes in the same violent situation, while The Ascent becomes lost in its own non-varietal Groundhog Day premise. - Flickering Myth EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2020
3.5/5 87% Shirley (2020) A markedly evil piece of inspired fiction when viewed through an "unconventional horror" lens. Moss is aces. Stuhlbarg is aces. In other words, sky still blue. - Flickering Myth EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2020
2.5/5 No Score Yet The Clearing (2020) The Clearing is a contained "infected" flick that suffers from its lack of world-building; a case of what is never cinematically acknowledged somehow becoming more interesting than the presented horrors at hand. - Flickering Myth EDIT

3.5/5 69% Becky (2020) Becky levels the playing field and erases insurmountable odds (age gaps) to deliver this short-stuff revenge thriller with a rebel yell. - Flickering Myth EDIT

2.5/5 38% The Dinner Party (2020) It's all well-acted and deceptively batty, but at nearly two hours, The Dinner Party bites off more than it can chew. - Flickering Myth EDIT

3.5/5 92% The Vast of Night (2020) A wonderful sci-fi time capsule that's a 50s radio show brought to life. - Flickering Myth EDIT

4/5 74% Jumbo (2020) Yup. The movie where a girl falls in love with a Tilt-A-Whirl says more about self-assurance, romantic expression, and the misunderstanding of "weirdness" than most human-on-human takes. - We Got This Covered EDIT

3.5/5 No Score Yet Skull: The Mask (2020) Skull hacks, slashes, squishes, and severs its way to midnighter notoriety in this gloriously gory practical effects showcase. - We Got This Covered EDIT
Read More | Posted May 27, 2020
3.5/5 82% Scare Package (2019) Scare Package, like the horror genre, might have some flaws - but it also has plenty of satirical slasher in-gags that'll slice through your funnybone like a machete through camp counselors. - We Got This Covered EDIT

3.5/5 88% The Trip to Greece (2020) The Trip To Greece is all about comedy and tragedy playing against one another. More so than any previous entry. - Flickering Myth EDIT

5/10 65% The Lovebirds (2020) The Lovebirds may unite two comedic heavyweights but always feels like its punching above its weight class (which is a commentary on scripted shortcomings, I assure you). - We Got This Covered EDIT

1.5/5 No Score Yet The Haunted (2020) Maybe there's a better way to tell David Holroyd's The Haunted, but this navigation surely won't raise the dead (or a single hair). - Flickering Myth EDIT

6/10 49% Scoob! (2020) Scoob! is an enjoyable-enough start to the Hanna-Barbera cinematic universe, but may leave Mystery Inc. superfans feeling robbed of the Scooby-centric reboot that such a title suggests. - We Got This Covered EDIT

3/5 67% Diablo Rojo PTY (2019) The seams may show but Panama's first horror feature is a representative funhouse filled with wicked brujas, gigantic demon puppets (à la Evil Dead), and one blood-soaked highway to Hell. - Flickering Myth EDIT

.5/5 No Score Yet Creepy Tales of Pizza and Gore (2014) Satiates our craving for pizza-themed horror like a Domino's pie that replaces every ingredient with oven-fired Play-Doh. - Flickering Myth EDIT

1/5 50% Evil Little Things (2020) Evil Little Things steps to the plate with three anthological chances to hit "creepy dolly horror" out of the park, but whiffs every time like a blind designated hitter. - Flickering Myth EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet The Jack in the Box (2020) The Jack In The Box boasts a righteous concept, better "exhibit of the cursed" appeal, but doesn't deliver horror's next "killer object that should not be" classic. - Flickering Myth EDIT

3.5/5 100% Mutant Blast (2019) It was at the point where a human-sized lobster in a business suit squared off against the dolphin with a katana that MUTANT BLAST won me over. - Flickering Myth EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet 0.0 Mhz (2019) A too-familiar blend of GONJIAM: HAUNTED ASYLUM and EXTE with some frustratingly lackluster hair-everywhere effects. - Flickering Myth EDIT

6/10 68% Extraction (2020) Extraction is an overstuffed rescue mission that delivers heart-racing action but never keys into any further development beyond the sum of corpses on your screen. - We Got This Covered EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2020
1/5 No Score Yet Ouijageist (2018) If you title your film Ouijageist, your movie better gosh-darn-diddly-dokilly be about a motherflippin' "Ouijageist." Spoiler: you'll never see one. - Flickering Myth EDIT

7/10 89% Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge (2020) Scorpion's Revenge is a punishing deathmatch that embraces Mortal Kombat's interdimensional hellscape appeal. It's heavy on epic fatalities and even heavier on animated action exhilaration. - We Got This Covered EDIT
