40% Demon House (2018) It's definitely not for everyone, but it's amazingly entertaining...completely itself in a way a lot of movies aren't. - Nyx Fears EDIT

14% Winchester (2018) This movie is a lot of a mess, and I don't know if I recommend that you see this. I couldn't believe it. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
26% The Nun (2018) Why all the strange things, the vision, the nonsense? That said, I'm kind of here for it. I'm pretty happy with what I got, and if you're looking for a wild time at the movies, might I recommend The Nun... - Nyx Fears EDIT

86% Ingrid Goes West (2017) It's a film that exhibits both how we want to be seen and how we actually are. We're all humans, with needs and wants and flaws... - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
91% A Ghost Story (2017) Complicated ending; I liked it a lot...a bit in conflict with one specific theme of the movie, but in the right hands, its message will be very resonant. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
85% It (2017) A scary movie for tangible, psychological reasons. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
14% Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (1994) Who is this movie for? Why make a movie for no one? ...never before has a movie so vehemently hated the viewer. It's as if it's trying to make fun of you... - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
69% Free Fire (2017) Just a whole lot of fun, with engaging storytelling, but the metaphorical backbone is still there. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
82% Brigsby Bear (2017) We don't get a lot of movies like this, that make me truly happy. That's part of the whole cinematic experience... - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
98% Get Out (2017) You have a good time, and you gain a little perspective...it makes nuance a priority. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
20% The Bye Bye Man (2017) Because of poor momentary editing, the movie never functions as horror...the dialogue is usually flat and blatantly terrible, just explaining stuff to the audience... - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
8% Rings (2017) This movie fails to accomplish any of its goals, and it doesn't care about surprising you. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
No Score Yet Cauchemares (Cathy's Curse) (1977) Clever subversion, accidentally...a beautiful mess, no other way I can think of describing it...constantly fascinated by what's happening on screen. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
92% Drag Me to Hell (2009) Ironically, it's a masterpiece of the modern horror genre. it shows a lot of cinematic strength, and it's a surprisingly meaningful movie. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
58% The Neon Demon (2016) They're saying something with this film...I loved The Neon Demon, but you have to know what you're getting into. This is the type of movie that will probably shock you. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
92% Raw (2017) The film is getting at something about love and family, and it does so with care and brutality at the same time. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
49% 31 (2016) Fake intensity...the characters we were supposed to empathize with aren't really developed at all... - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
37% Blair Witch (2016) It does have a charm and personality that shines through. It does a lot of stuff that's different, but also does a lot of the same. I want to see it again. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
59% High-Rise (2016) It's funny, it's enjoyable, but it really starts to feel its length at times...turns into a bit of a mess for a little while, before picking it back up at the end... - Nyx Fears EDIT

50% Holidays (2016) What a stupid decision at the end to pander to a horror audience...it was so, so stupid. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
8% God's Not Dead 2 (2016) Completely straw-manned...the movie spends two hours screwing around...don't pay to see it. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
87% The Lobster (2016) It plays on two different tones very strongly...I would recommend it to cinephiles. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) If you're a general wide-audience for horror movies, you should see this one over almost any other release...this should set a standard for how studio horror movies are made. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
96% What We Do In The Shadows (2015) One of the best films of 2014. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
85% Goodnight Mommy (Ich seh, Ich seh) (2015) It could've had a much more satisfying ending...I can see why people like it, and it's by no means a horrible movie...when it comes down to it, I didn't feel like the direction made sense in the second half... - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019
96% It Follows (2015) It's such an interesting audience experience...try your hardest not to think about this too much. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2019

9% Fantastic Four (2015) It just knocks that point into your head. It's bad. Is it a train wreck? Absolutely. But it's not the worst movie ever. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2019
96% A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014) It's impressive to evoke two different feelings from your audience at all times...one of the most visually-impressive movies I've seen this year. - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2019
48% The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986) There's something to love about how unapologetically crazy, and unlike the last one, this movie is...it still tries to convey relatable things. - Nyx Fears EDIT

Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2019
7% Slender Man (2018) The movie is pretty bad, so if you have limited money, I wouldn't go throwing it at the Slender Man movie that Sony meddled with. Why did they do this? - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2019
66% Suspiria (2018) There were two scenes that were so ridiculously disturbing that I almost had to leave...it doesn't make an awful lot of sense to us, because that's how things lie...what if it straight-up transcends the idea of good and bad? - Nyx Fears EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2019
19% The Possession of Hannah Grace (2018) Watching it was pretty visceral. The stuff that was really cool was exceptionally cool, but the stuff that sucked dragged down the thing so much that it almost completely ruined what was good about it. - Nyx Fears EDIT
