Rating Title/Year Author
House of Sweat and Tears (2018) Amie Simon This atmospheric horror film isn't filled with blood and gore, but it did produce an uncomfortable feeling of dread as I watched the minutes unspool. EDIT

The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) (2011) Amie Simon Without suspense, graphic gore doesn't accomplish anything except making you look like you're trying too hard. EDIT

Cursed (2005) Amie Simon Cursed just makes me sad. EDIT

My Soul to Take (2010) Amie Simon There are a few interesting murders, and a few not so interesting-and there's more than enough splatter, but not so much that it can cover-up the terrible acting and script. EDIT

Saint Ange (2004) Amie Simon ... appropriately bleak (like a horror movie should be), and atmospherically, one of the better ghost stories I've seen. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2019
Suspiria (2018) Amie Simon Guadagnino's Suspiria unfolds in six acts with a beautifully perfect score by Thom Yorke; each act ramping up the intensity and suspense until the final, brutally insane and satisfying conclusion. EDIT

Silver Linings Playbook (2012) Amie Simon Despite its flaws, it's got romance AND sports AND funny family drama AND a really hilariously amazing can't stop laughing about it dance scene. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
Lovely Molly (2011) Amie Simon ... the most frightening thing about Lovely Molly isn't the horror aspect of the story-it's the past demons that Molly is facing that make you feel true terror. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
Antiviral (2012) Amie Simon ... a beautifully done cautionary tale bathed in horror. Be prepared for lots of poking, prodding, needles, and bizarrely disgusting human tissue creations. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
The Babadook (2014) Amie Simon ... a non-stop ball of tension from beginning to end, the acting is freaking amazing, the creature F/X are great. I can't even express how surprised I was by this movie. EDIT

Unfriend (2016) Amie Simon As much as I found it funny that Laura seemed to care more about videos being posted to her page then she did about her friends dying, nothing about it made any sense. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
Unsane (2018) Amie Simon Overall, Unsane is pretty decent and I think it's worth watching; it's just not gonna blow anyone's mind. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
You Might Be the Killer (2018) Amie Simon ... great tribute to 80s slashers with lots of inside jokes and some awesome bloody splatter - and honestly, watching Fran Kanz & Alyson Hannigan do ANYTHING is delightful. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
School's Out (2018) Amie Simon ... super, super bleak but ripe with eye candy and also has the most fantastically cool choir teacher I've ever seen. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
The Perfection (2018) Amie Simon ... while it's easy to see where the story is going, it's IMPOSSIBLE to anticipate how it gets there. I loved it, and I think this one is destined to become a cult classic. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
Overlord (2018) Amie Simon ... takes forever and a day to get to the actual mad science'ing and it just didn't take it as far as I wanted it to. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
One Cut of the Dead (Kamera o tomeru na!) (2017) Amie Simon ... funny and charming and just an absolute joy to watch. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
May the Devil Take You (2018) Amie Simon Lesmana for FATHER OF THE YEAR. Jk! EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
Mary Jane's Not a Virgin Anymore (1997) Amie Simon ... looks and feels really authentic, and it just makes me pissed off that Jacobsen died before she could finish her next film & we never got a chance to see more of her work. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
Lords of Chaos (2018) Amie Simon ... there was something fascinating but also surreal about watching it play with laughter, but honestly the more I think about it the more I'm just annoyed. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
Life After Flash (2017) Amie Simon I'm a Flash Gordon appreciator, but I didn't know a LOT about the film (other than how gloriously fun it is to watch), so I found every bit of this super entertaining. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
Hold the Dark (2018) Amie Simon By no means Saulnier's best (that title still belongs to Green Room), but it's still a good piece of cinema. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
Burning (2018) Amie Simon It's a slow ... burn (haha), but I guess the ending was satisfying. Maybe? EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
Between Worlds (2018) Amie Simon This is just straight-up awful. I weep for Franka. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) Amie Simon El Royale is a lot of fun and the casting is SOLID - everyone was perfect, even Jon Hamm at his Jon Hammiest (+ a blink and you'll miss it appearance by Katharine Isabelle). EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2019
Apostle (2018) Amie Simon Apostle perfectly illustrates how destructive the patriarchy is; how power is corruptive; how religion can so easily be twisted into ugliness; how men react with violence ... EDIT
