4.5/5 90% Pet Sematary (2019) Kolsch and Widmyer don't bother retreading the story we know and instead give us something far more satisfying. They give us a story so bone-chilling, so substantial, and even a little bit of humor to alleviate the brutal blow of abject terror. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

3/5 46% Captive State (2019) For those looking for a fast-paced thriller that crafts an exhilarating, complicated web, Captive State has a lot to offer. If characters with satisfying arcs are more your style, well, it's best to sit this one out. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

2.5 67% I See You (2019) Overall, I See You is a frustrating experience. It's a great concept that's well produced and is anchored by a talented cast. But because the story's unique structure is given so much time and attention, everything else is diminished in the process. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

2.5/5 56% Tales from the Lodge (2019) The talented and comedic actors bring these characters to life in a very human way that keeps you invested up until the third act. Then it spirals into over the top dramatic mess with a more convoluted than necessary reveal. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

3/5 75% Body at Brighton Rock (2019) Even with a simple narrative, Benjamin manipulates it for all that its worth in terms of spooky atmosphere, chilling moments of abject terror, and a tone that skillfully toggles between fun irreverence and uncomfortably dark. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

3.5/5 60% Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Rodriguez has crafted an entertaining showcase of visual storytelling that sucks you in as it zips through so many captivating set pieces. It's just light on plot and depth. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

3/5 50% A Breath Away (Dans la brume) (2019) Roby has succeeded in crafting a well-executed story that feels grander than its budget, and the talented cast give their all even when limited by the script. It just doesn't offer much that we haven't already seen before. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

3.5/5 100% One Cut of the Dead (Kamera o tomeru na!) (2017) Shinichiro Ueda's zombie comedy is one that purposefully pretends to offer familiar zombie schlock only to rip the rug out from under us in an innovative, hilarious way. The level of detail is uncanny, and the comedy is equally matched by charm. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

3/5 80% May the Devil Take You (Sebelum iblis menjemput) (2018) It's not perfect and makes no attempts to disguise its influences, but this Raimi style spin on Satanic horror conjures up a devilishly fun midnight romp. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

3.5/5 85% Knuckleball (2018) Knuckeball is a well-executed thriller unafraid to embrace is violent darkness or put its child lead in peril. Brutal, bloody, and full of surprises, this one is a flawed but entertaining ride. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

3/5 77% Pledge (2019) For those that like their thrillers fast and warped, Pledge is an entertaining take on a familiar story. Partying, torture, death, and dark humor makes for a fun and sometimes gruesome watch. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

4/5 82% Terrified (Aterrados) (2017) This nonstop barrage of scares and super creepy set pieces is the equivalent of venturing into a haunted house attraction. It doesn't offer much in the way of a fully fleshed out plot with concrete answers, but it doesn't need to. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

4.5/5 79% Apostle (2018) Evans departs from his usual action fare to weave a gripping story centered around unique Pagan-like mythology steeped in blood and sacrifice. It's folk horror, but with a new level of brutality and viscera unlike most of its ilk. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

2.5/5 40% Leprechaun Returns (2018) While there's a lot of charm to be found, it's also sloppy in its world-building and doesn't give us anyone to truly root for. It doesn't feel like anything we haven't already seen before, either. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

1.5/5 7% Slender Man (2018) Slender Man essentially feels like a movie created from a how-to guide to horror. Step one: apply drab color palette with hazy blues, greens, and neutrals. Step 2: make sure all set pieces look like generic, creepy locations. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

4.5/5 66% Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich (2018) Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich brings puppet carnage and mayhem to insane new heights, unafraid to break every single taboo along their quest to fulfill their Fuhrer's bidding. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

4/5 62% St. Agatha (2019) Kern and Hennesy deliver powerhouse performances that leave you gripping your seat and holding your breath. Bousman knows how to ramp up the tension in measured strokes, barely allowing the audience time to gasp for more air. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

2.5/5 93% Beast (2018) The tonal shift undoes what amounts to one of the more interesting origins of a serial killer in the making. A thriller without much thrills, Beast is a thought-provoking character study and sort of a dark fairy tale. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

3/5 66% Suspiria (2018) 'Suspiria' is Its Own Beast, Casting a Hypnotic Spell That's Sure to Divide Audiences - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

3/5 88% Nightmare Cinema (2019) The five filmmakers brought together here are so varied that there's bound to be something for every horror fan. It also means that there will be plenty that won't work for everyone. - Bloody Disgusting EDIT

18% Street Fighter (1994) Even knowing what a mess Street Fighter is, I will defend it to the end of time all for what Raul Julia brought to the film. - Birth.Movies.Death. EDIT
