Rating Title/Year Author
4/5 Starfish (2016) C.H. Newell A uniquely personal vision of one person's world ending and how that can feel as big and as tangible as an actual apocalypse. EDIT
Posted May 29, 2019
3.5/5 Morto Não Fala (2018) C.H. Newell This tale of a man who can speak to the dead touches on everything from death and loneliness to the desperate, damaging need for male control in a relationship. EDIT
Posted May 24, 2019
4/5 Body at Brighton Rock (2019) C.H. Newell Roxanne Benjamin's protagonist Wendy has to face the ugly world in all its brutality, fending off the elements, animals, and, maybe most importantly, man. EDIT
Posted May 22, 2019
4.5/5 We Have Always Lived in the Castle (2018) C.H. Newell Gives fans of the book a faithful adaptation, and also allows the timeless story of the novel to parallel the troubled sociopolitical times in which we currently exist. EDIT
Posted May 21, 2019
3.5/5 Saint Bernard (2013) C.H. Newell For those who get hooked by the unbelievable imagery and fantastical story, there's much more narrative hiding underneath the visual insanity than might initially appear. EDIT
Posted May 15, 2019
4/5 Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) C.H. Newell Never glorifies its subject, showing him as a bland, dishonest, and cruel human being, focusing on the wreckage he created that extended beyond his victims and their families. EDIT
Posted May 8, 2019
3.5/5 Let Us Prey (2014) C.H. Newell Great performances, nasty horror, and a rumination on the divide between good and evil. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
3.5/5 Last Shift (2014) C.H. Newell A solid horror film with savagely effective makeup effects, atmospheric mood, and disturbing psychological thrills set inside a claustrophobic location. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4/5 Q (1982) C.H. Newell Cohen uses a pulpy noir-ish plotline to masquerade in front of the titular dragon-like monster, creating an impressive mix of crime and horror and mystery. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4.5/5 Wolfen (1981) C.H. Newell A crime-thriller-style plot with elements of a police procedural that makes a statement about the plight of Native Americans specifically in big urban centres. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4.5/5 Burnt Offerings (1976) C.H. Newell Whereas other movies focus on ghosts, Curtis's film uses the house as the ghost, the monster, and the creature. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4.5/5 Under the Shadow (2016) C.H. Newell Encompasses many experiences and situations of women worldwide, and what living under the constant, forceful pressure of patriarchy can do to their psyches. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
5/5 Near Dark (1987) C.H. Newell If there ever were an award for best modern vampire flick, this would certainly be in the running for first place. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
1/5 Yoga Hosers (2016) C.H. Newell Not only is it all a hot mess, the Canadian jokes are terrible and make the screenplay lazier than it is already. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4.5/5 Dahmer (2002) C.H. Newell More powerful than most give it credit for, and if this was your first time seeing Jeremy Renner, the quiet intensity of his performance is a massive part of that power. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4/5 Civic Duty (2006) C.H. Newell Civic Duty pulls us into the post-9/11 hysteria that felt ready to pop in America. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
5/5 Blue Ruin (2013) C.H. Newell Saulnier has created a very brutal, raw image of the revenge thriller. He takes it out of the ridiculousness of Hollywood and how big budget films treat the sub-genre. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4/5 Arlington Road (1999) C.H. Newell Arlington Road is a mystery-laden thriller, not without flaws. Overall, it does the job of sucking you in and never letting go, not until the last beat. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
5/5 The Changeling (1980) C.H. Newell Chills and thrills, mounds of suspense, and a genuinely crafted atmosphere that makes you wonder what terror lies behind each corner inside the sprawling, ancient mansion. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4.5/5 The Hospital (1971) C.H. Newell It will have you pondering the effectiveness of the American healthcare system, one that hasn't changed (too) much since '71. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
5/5 Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) C.H. Newell The satire and its execution, from George C. Scott to Peter Sellers in his three roles, is first and foremost what makes things work. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
5/5 Life of Brian (1979) C.H. Newell Life of Brian is undoubtedly the greatest religious satire of all-time. Comedic gold. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4/5 The Shining (1980) C.H. Newell Kubrick most definitely made an impressive horror film that not only contributed to the genre as a whole, it also left an indelible mark on many moviegoers. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4/5 1408 (2007) C.H. Newell Using the talents of John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson, Håfström makes a creepshow out of King's short story, doing justice to it completely. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
3/5 Cell (2016) C.H. Newell Creepy at the best of times. Plenty of flaws to boot and there are definitely lacklustre performances out of Cusack and Jackson, which is unfortunate. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
5/5 Unbreakable (2000) C.H. Newell Small and subdued, yet at the same time epic in scale. Shyamalan tells the story of superheroes, but in a contained and human fashion. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4/5 The Visit (2015) C.H. Newell Shyamalan recaptures some of his earlier essence with lots of mystery, subtle creeps and moments where you'll question what exactly it is you're seeing. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4/5 419 (2012) C.H. Newell A pretty cracking little thriller that has elements of crime and horror, using the Nigerian Prince e-mail scam as an interesting jump-off point. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
1/5 Megan Is Missing (2011) C.H. Newell A forgettable, rotten movie with an important message that I'll likely never ever watch again. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
3.5/5 A Serbian Film (2010) C.H. Newell A Serbian Film seems to have more in mind than it conveys on the outer surface. But it remains effective, one gruesome way or another. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4.5/5 Southbound (2015) C.H. Newell It has an amazing sense of homage without ever really trying to reference The Twilight Zone, and, at the same time, it's an entity all of its own. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
2/5 The Pact II (2014) C.H. Newell What might have been, in another universe, a decent flick ends up as a whole lot of junk, and The Pact II is relegated to the land of abysmal horror sequels. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4/5 The Pact (2012) C.H. Newell McCarthy's film weaves aspects of the haunted house sub-genre with very raw, serial killer-esque horror. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4/5 The Incident (2011) C.H. Newell Asylum Blackout is an especially effective little horror-thriller that has plenty of psychological terror in store for its viewers. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4/5 Knock Knock (2015) C.H. Newell Roth modernises 1977's Death Game, giving the latest generation a home invasion film with plenty of sharp teeth and even one sassy, satirical tongue. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
3/5 The Canal (2014) C.H. Newell It'd be closer to greatness if only the entire final reel hadn't squandered all that horrifying potential by going with a conclusion that's far too typical. EDIT
Posted May 7, 2019
4/5 The Purge (2013) C.H. Newell All about totalitarianism, the police state, and how extreme white right-wing politics have the ability to rise in the wake of economic collapse. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
4/5 The Purge: Anarchy (2014) C.H. Newell People will continue to pass these off as silly movies, though, they are much more than that. They reveal the beating, ugly heart of America. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
4.5/5 The Purge: Election Year (2016) C.H. Newell DeMonaco focuses on white nationalism, the rule of the upper class, revolutionary action, and so much more in this more than worthy sequel. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
5/5 Eyes Without a Face (1959) C.H. Newell Remarkably executed practical effects, which feel clinical and gruesome, allowing Eyes Without A Face to cross that threshold of the older style of Gothic horror. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
4.5/5 Black Death (2010) C.H. Newell A savage, genuine reflection of the Middle Ages, allowing for maximum nastiness and a few excitingly bloody moments. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3.5/5 Tombs of the Blind Dead (1971) C.H. Newell With its share of flaws, Tombs of the Blind Dead is a fun, spooky, and memorable addition to the world of cinematic horror. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
4.5/5 The Hunger (1983) C.H. Newell With style and a proper helping of eroticism and blood, The Hunger gnashes its way by the teeth into that upper echelon, the pantheon of great vampire movies. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
5/5 The Legend of Hell House (1973) C.H. Newell This journey into a terrifying haunted house is one of metaphysics, exploring how disbelief, in many forms, can work against oneself. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3.5/5 I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) C.H. Newell For all its glaring flaws, I Know What You Did Last Summer has its fun with a loosely adapted story from the novel of the same name by Lois Duncan. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
4.5/5 Scream (1996) C.H. Newell Scream is the story of when innocent women come up against angry men. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
3.5/5 House (1985) C.H. Newell Even if it can never decide what it wants to be, House is a fun, weird, and creepy '80s romp. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
5/5 Antichrist (2009) C.H. Newell The Danish madman dives deep and horrifically into the territory of theology, aiming his criticisms at the misogyny of religion and, in turn, society. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
5/5 Angst (1983) C.H. Newell There are films which put us in the perspective of a character, then there's Angst. Just so happens this character is one of the most terrifying cinema has to offer. EDIT
Posted May 6, 2019
1.5/5 Madison County (2011) C.H. Newell A by-the-numbers slasher, set in the backwoods, and there's really nothing special here to take away. EDIT
