      I Got a Monster (2023) I Got a Monster shines a light on how systemic abuses of power are left unchecked and often allowed to proliferate, but it’s a tough watch in many ways because it’s clear that there are plenty of similar stories happening right now that aren’t being told. - Vague Visages

      Scream VI (2023) Bettinelli-Olpin and Gillett are more confident this time around, taking more risks and putting their own spin on a franchise that they were maybe too fond of as fans to truly experiment with during the previous film. - Vague Visages

      Unwelcome (2022) The Brits are the heroes and, in a movie set in Ireland that uses our mythology as a paper-thin backdrop for meaningless violence, this is a cardinal sin. - Wicked Horror

      Huesera: The Bone Woman (2022) The most troubling thing about "Huesera: The Bone Woman" may just be how much of it will ring true to any woman watching. - Vague Visages

      Attachment (2022) Although Attachment is undeniably a horror movie, it’s also a sensitively played queer romance and a dissection of the way certain women bind themselves to strict edicts as a kind of self-protection. - Vague Visages

      M3GAN (2022) As much fun as it is, when it comes to modern killer doll movies, M3GAN is a major step up from Annabelle, but still can’t compete with the granddaddy of them all. [Chucky] would never willingly leave that stupid kid alive. - Wicked Horror

      The Murder Podcast (2021) The Murder Podcast is, in essence, like all the best podcasts; it’s smart, funny, unique, and crucially doesn’t overstay its welcome. - Wicked Horror

      Scare Package II: Rad Chad's Revenge (2022) Throwing everything at the screen to see what sticks has tripped many a filmmaker up in the past, but Aaron B. Koontz and Cameron Burns have made an art-form out of it. Long may Rad Chad’s reign of terror continue. - Wicked Horror

      Influencer (2023) This is a brutal and incisive look at social media addiction but the scariest thing about Influencer might just be how it reflects our own online obsession back at us. - Wicked Horror

      The Leech (2022) The Leech doesn’t unfold as you’d expect it to. Even the pacing, although deliberate, places the weight on seemingly innocuous moments. ... By the end, you’ll be left wondering not just who the title refers to, but also what was real and not. - Wicked Horror

      Christmas Bloody Christmas (2022) Christmas Bloody Christmas is stylishly scuzzy, and the kills are super gory, but without [Riley] Dandy it simply wouldn’t work as well as it does. ... It’s yet more evidence that [Joe] Begos is one of the most exciting filmmakers working in horror today. - Vague Visages

      A Wounded Fawn (2022) By utilizing Greek mythology to contextualize Bruce’s crimes and later violently punish him for them, Stevens showcases how little progress has truly been made outside of the stories we tell ourselves. - Wicked Horror

      Blood Relatives (2022) Strip away the bloodsucking and [Noah] Segan’s auspicious debut would be just as enjoyable. But by making a vampire movie, he tapped into something universally human and truly special. - Vague Visages

      Something In The Dirt (2022) There’s a sense that a sharper edit might have made Something in the Dirt land a little harder – at just under two hours, it’s definitely too long – but the story is so expansive, it’s understandable the duo wanted the space to let it breathe. - Wicked Horror
      Read More | Posted Nov 04, 2022
      Halloween Ends (2022) Sticking the landing was always going to be difficult with Halloween Ends, because there are so many moving parts, but the film wraps things up to a rewarding extent in a manner befitting the duo’s ambitious original vision. - Vague Visages

      Deadstream (2022) Deadstream is an inventive, unpredictable and hugely charming found footage horror film, but it’s also a clever indictment of internet culture with a gripping, vanity-free lead performance from its co-writer/director. An all-timer in the making, for sure. - Vague Visages

      To the Moon (2021) Deceptively clever and strangely alluring, To the Moon is difficult to work out, which was probably [Scott] Friend’s intention, but every detail is considered, every moment charged with meaning. - Wicked Horror

      Raven's Hollow (2022) Without any prior understanding of Edgar Allan Poe's work, you might get less out of Raven’s Hollow on an intellectual basis, but the movie is an entertaining and spooky slice of supernatural horror in its own right, too. - Wicked Horror

      Speak No Evil (2022) Speak No Evil is a horror-comedy of manners, and the performances are solid throughout, particularly from the children, but the movie’s cynical, meaningless and utterly contrived conclusion feels like a cheat after everything that’s come before. - Vague Visages

      Maneater (2022) The final, brazened reference to Jaws is wild considering just how incompetent Maneater is in comparison, in every conceivable way. Seriously, this is a How Did This Get Made? episode waiting to happen. - Wicked Horror

      When I Consume You (2021) As with Blackshear’s other films, your mileage will vary depending on how patient you are with the deathly slow pacing and little to no explanation of what’s really going on. - Wicked Horror

      Glorious (2022) If it doesn’t necessarily all hang together in the end, Glorious is a reasonably diverting, and satisfyingly bloody, enterprise that bodes well for McKendry’s future career above all else. - Wicked Horror

      After Blue (2021) This challenging movie has plenty of style to spare but searching for substance may be an insurmountable task for most. - Vague Visages

      Nope (2022) The violence of attention is a key concern here, likewise the idea that our biggest threats could be hiding in plain sight, but it’s worth noting that Nope also functions as a thrilling summer blockbuster in its own right too. - Wicked Horror

      The Reef: Stalked (2022) Once it gets going and the four main stars are plonked down in the middle of the ocean with nowhere to, er, swim, The Reef: Stalked becomes a fast-paced, entertaining, and surprisingly scary little creature feature. - Wicked Horror

      Resurrection (2022) A sleek, angular film, which takes its time unravelling the central conceit just as Margaret loses her grip alongside it. The gory denouement will likely be the biggest talking point... but the haunting look in Hall’s eyes is even more memorable. - Wicked Horror

      She Will (2021) Charlotte Colbert’s debut is provocative, thought-provoking and beguiling, but if it dug a little deeper, or was more focused, maybe the movie wouldn’t feel so unsatisfying. Regardless, She Will is an impressive introduction to Colbert as a filmmaker. - Vague Visages

      The Black Phone (2021) For much of the movie’s first act, we’re subjected to horrific violence against children, but once the actual child murderer shows up, the brutality comes to an abrupt halt as Finney and The Grabber engage in an increasingly tiresome back and forth. - Wicked Horror

      Being BeBe (2021) Being BeBe is full of heart, soul and wit — much like the subject herself — and provides a fascinating glimpse behind the curtain for fans and curious newcomers alike; a joy-filled, life-affirming must-watch. - Vague Visages

      Cordelia (2019) Neither Johnny Flynn nor Antonia Campbell-Hughes’ performance can be faulted. But Cordelia is generally easier to appreciate for what it’s trying to do rather than what the film actually achieves. - Vague Visages

      The Aviary (2022) A character-driven story about the lingering hold being part of a cult has on its victims, and how tough it is to break free. - Wicked Horror

      Stanleyville (2021) An ambitious failure is often more interesting than a safe success, and what ‘Stanleyville’ lacks in narrative propulsion it makes up for with sheer audacity. - Vague Visages

      The Cellar (2022) In a world of cheap jump scares and terrible CGI apparitions, Muldowney's film is a handsomely crafted, and consistently blood-chilling reminder of what an old-school horror story can really achieve, when given the room to breathe. - Wicked Horror

      Bull (2021) Neil Maskell's performance is truly astounding. He inhabits the role of Bull to an increasingly disconcerting extent, communicating a lifetime of hurt and anger even while torturing and killing people. - Wicked Horror

      Barbarians (2021) A slick, beautifully shot, and deviously unpredictable story of privileged, out of touch jerks learning the error of their ways in the most horrifying manner possible -- and that's even before any bloodshed occurs. - Wicked Horror

      X (2022) Ti West blends old school homage with modern horror thrills to craft a blackly comic and surprisingly poignant tale loaded with scares and gut-churning gore. - Wicked Horror

      Take Back the Night (2021) For better and indeed worse, Take Back the Night is a painfully, unflinchingly honest depiction of how impossible it is simply to be believed as a victim of violence. - Wicked Horror

      The Long Walk (2019) The Long Walk, the latest from Mattie Do — Laos’ first and, so far, only female director — understands that for time travel to make sense, all one has to do is present it as is. For Do, it’s a feeling more than a fact. - Vague Visages

      King Knight (2021) King Knight is the kind of film that was clearly a lot of fun to make but is nowhere near as entertaining to watch. The experience is akin to watching the blooper reel at the end of a bad comedy for 80 minutes straight. - Vague Visages

      Student Body (2022) Despites its flaws, this is a tough film not to love for its scrappy energy alone. All eyes will be on what Lee Ann Kurr does next, hopefully with a bigger canvas. - Wicked Horror

      The Last Thing Mary Saw (2021) Considering that religious fundamentalists continue to persecute gay people, it's shortsighted to present a story like The Last Thing Mary Saw with such little concern for the current real-life ramifications of being queer. - Vague Visages

      Scream (2022) Scream’ conjures up a fast-moving, razor-sharp, viciously violent and sufficiently surprising modern slasher of which Craven himself would be proud. - Vague Visages

      The Advent Calendar (2020) This is middling festive horror fare, neither too naughty to truly shock nor too nice to fully win us over. - Wicked Horror

      Clerk (2021) Even diehards will learn something new from this expansive, informative and always entertaining documentary. Much like Smith himself, Clerk is sure to elicit some tears by the end too. - Vague Visages

      Black Friday (2021) Tebo's low-stakes take on holiday horror is a lot like Christmas candy; [it] hits the spot, but you might be left craving something slightly more substantial soon afterwards. - Vague Visages

      Halloween Kills (2021) Halloween Kills may not be to everybody's tastes, but there's a reason for that 'kills' in the title, beyond attention-grabbing marketing. The word refers not just to Michael himself but the rot at the core of Haddonfield. - Vague Visages

      V/H/S/94 (2021) There are reports V/H/S/94 is a return to the highs of the franchise. It's not, but there's enough to enjoy here to ensure this isn't quite as much of an endurance test as VHS: Viral. - Wicked Horror

      Malignant (2021) There are soap opera level reveals throughout, each more shocking than the last, but if you're paying attention, there's only really one way this can go. To his credit, Wan goes fully there and further. - Wicked Horror
