The Dead Don't Die (2019) May Leitz The weirdest movie I've seen this year, and I'm not kidding. Where's the discourse? This movie is nuts... EDIT

Child's Play (2019) May Leitz I didn't know I wanted a Child's Play reboot with Mark Hamil as Chucky in the year of 2019...I couldn't have anticipated that. It's pretty good! EDIT
Posted Jul 8, 2019
Dragged Across Concrete (2018) May Leitz Damsels in distress, and women that don't have any agency or character, being thrown into peril so men can save them from the evil... EDIT
Posted Mar 29, 2019
American Satan (2017) May Leitz Sound the alarm, we've got a movie emergency. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
The Snowman (2017) May Leitz It's a movie that's literally missing 15 percent of the story. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
Demon House (2018) May Leitz It's definitely not for everyone, but it's amazingly entertaining...completely itself in a way a lot of movies aren't. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
Winchester (2018) May Leitz 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. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
The Nun (2018) May Leitz 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... EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
Wish Upon (2017) May Leitz You should see the film. It's really funny...oh boy, did they make this film. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
Ingrid Goes West (2017) May Leitz 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... EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
A Ghost Story (2017) May Leitz 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. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
It (2017) May Leitz A scary movie for tangible, psychological reasons. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1995) May Leitz 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... EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
Free Fire (2016) May Leitz Just a whole lot of fun, with engaging storytelling, but the metaphorical backbone is still there. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
Brigsby Bear (2017) May Leitz We don't get a lot of movies like this, that make me truly happy. That's part of the whole cinematic experience... EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
Get Out (2017) May Leitz You have a good time, and you gain a little perspective...it makes nuance a priority. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
The Bye Bye Man (2017) May Leitz 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... EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
Rings (2017) May Leitz This movie fails to accomplish any of its goals, and it doesn't care about surprising you. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
Cathy's Curse (1977) May Leitz Clever subversion, accidentally...a beautiful mess, no other way I can think of describing it...constantly fascinated by what's happening on screen. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
Drag Me to Hell (2009) May Leitz Ironically, it's a masterpiece of the modern horror genre. it shows a lot of cinematic strength, and it's a surprisingly meaningful movie. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
The Neon Demon (2016) May Leitz 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. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
Raw (2016) May Leitz The film is getting at something about love and family, and it does so with care and brutality at the same time. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
31 (2016) May Leitz Fake intensity...the characters we were supposed to empathize with aren't really developed at all... EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
Blair Witch (2016) May Leitz 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. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
High-Rise (2015) May Leitz 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... EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
Holidays (2016) May Leitz What a stupid decision at the end to pander to a horror audience...it was so, so stupid. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
God's Not Dead 2 (2016) May Leitz Completely straw-manned...the movie spends two hours screwing around...don't pay to see it. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
The Lobster (2015) May Leitz It plays on two different tones very strongly...I would recommend it to cinephiles. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
The Conjuring 2 (2016) May Leitz 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. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
What We Do in the Shadows (2014) May Leitz One of the best films of 2014. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
Goodnight Mommy (2014) May Leitz 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... EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
It Follows (2014) May Leitz It's such an interesting audience experience...try your hardest not to think about this too much. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2019
The Gift (2015) May Leitz A really strange release. I really liked it, but it's really strange. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2019
Fantastic Four (2015) May Leitz 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. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2019
A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014) May Leitz 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. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2019
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2 (1986) May Leitz There's something to love about how unapologetically crazy, and unlike the last one, this movie is...it still tries to convey relatable things. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2019
Daddy's Home 2 (2017) May Leitz It send my brain straight to hell. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2019
A Quiet Place (2018) May Leitz The sound design is super important toward the narrative and meaning of the film. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2019
Slender Man (2018) May Leitz 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? EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2019
Suspiria (2018) May Leitz 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? EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2019
The Possession of Hannah Grace (2018) May Leitz 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. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2019
Frank (2014) May Leitz The film does everything right on a technical and structural angle...it chooses realism over sensation. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2019
Paranormal Activity 3 (2011) May Leitz For the love of God, I hope you don't see the next Paranormal Activity...Jesus, my head. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2019
The Dance of Reality (2013) May Leitz This man hasn't made a film in 23 years, and he's still flawless. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2019
Oculus (2013) May Leitz Oculus was actually awesome, even though I didn't have any expectations for it at all...happy to tell you that this one was well thought-out with some great performances. EDIT
