Rating Title/Year Author
Black Mass (2015) Joey Keogh [T]he result is terrifyingly intoxicating. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
Sicario (2015) Joey Keogh Sicario is [Denis] Villeneuve's darkest, shocking and most brutal offering yet. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
Macbeth (2015) Joey Keogh This is a brooding, cruel, bloody take on a story we think we know that is gripping right up until its final moments. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
Everest (2015) Joey Keogh It's profoundly moving in places... but it's also quite frightening too, especially in its depiction of how easily, and needlessly, certain people perished. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
'71 (2014) Joey Keogh Shot with verve and edited sharply, there's no messing around with '71... A brutal, bleak watch, its honesty is impressive - there are no real heroes here. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
Stranger by the Lake (2013) Joey Keogh The setting is simultaneously dreamlike and realistic. It feels as though anything could and, in fact, did happen at this lake. It's shot in such a stark, unapologetic manner that it's disarmingly realistic at times. And it will stay with you. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
2/10 Gothic Harvest (2018) Joey Keogh Gothic Harvest is like a rejected concept for an Avenged Sevenfold video. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
7/10 Deadcon (2019) Joey Keogh Although Deadcon is light on violence and gore, the movie maintains a strong atmosphere of unease throughout. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2019
7/10 Witches in the Woods (2019) Joey Keogh It's a well-told story of betrayal, survival, and personal responsibility with a darkly historical twist that's cleverly unraveled in a single, snowy setting. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2019
Gone Girl (2014) Joey Keogh [T]he true horror of Gone Girl is its honesty. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
Foxcatcher (2014) Joey Keogh Foxcatcher is a brutal and terrifying true story, even at its basest form. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
6.5/10 Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) Joey Keogh Insidious 3 mostly works quite well. It easily outdoes the dire second installment, ramping up the tension from the outset and refusing to let go. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
Blue Ruin (2013) Joey Keogh Blue Ruin is an incredibly affecting, disarmingly poignant revenge film with much to say about the nature of karmic retribution. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
Missionary (2013) Joey Keogh Films this special don't come around very often, but when they do, they push the boundaries of what could be considered horror. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
Nightcrawler (2014) Joey Keogh Nightcrawler is an incredibly assured, remarkably brave directorial debut from Dan Gilroy. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
Honeymoon (2014) Joey Keogh Honeymoon is writer-director Leigh Janiak's debut feature, but it's so assured, so innovative and original, it's an almost unbelievable achievement. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
9/10 Bliss (2019) Joey Keogh An utterly involving, frightening, and totally thrilling deep-dive into the dark underbelly of Los Angeles via a fierce female lead, Bliss is one of the most fascinating and essential horror movies of the year. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
Horns (2013) Joey Keogh There are issues with Horns... [but] it's still hugely enjoyable in its own right and impressively brave, too. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
Jackie (2016) Joey Keogh Much of the film's power comes from Natalie Portman's cold, calculating, masterful performance in the lead role. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
I Am Not a Serial Killer (2016) Joey Keogh [A] dark, spooky and super-smart movie. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
Silence (2016) Joey Keogh The tension in Silence comes not just from the absence of any guidance from a higher power, but in how rooted the two padres (particularly Rodrigues) are to the spot as others suffer in their place. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
Life (2017) Joey Keogh Life's true, B-movie genius, lies in its ability to consistently put its ostensibly super-smart group of scientists and engineers in real, considerable danger. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
Raw (2016) Joey Keogh [T]here's a punk rock spirit to it, along with a proudly feminist slant that marks the movie out as something very special indeed. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore (2017) Joey Keogh [A] remarkable debut for a burgeoning talent that straddles the line between horror and comedy expertly. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
Elle (2016) Joey Keogh Elle is a movie experience unlike any other. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
Kong: Skull Island (2017) Joey Keogh Where [Jordan] Vogt-Roberts excels is in selling the tactility of the world to us, shooting on location in Vietnam, Hawaii and Australia. It makes all the difference, the island given an otherworldly, yet irresistibly grounded feel throughout. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
Unforgettable (2017) Joey Keogh This is the kind of movie where everybody behaves like they've never seen a horror flick. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
Lady Macbeth (2016) Joey Keogh This is a tough watch, powered almost entirely by [Florence] Pugh's fearless turn as the titular character. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
Small Crimes (2017) Joey Keogh [Small Crimes is] something smaller, more contained, but nonetheless loaded with menace that proudly, defiantly skirts typical genre conventions. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
Berlin Syndrome (2017) Joey Keogh Anchored by a couple of equally strong central performances, [Berlin Syndrome] manages to be creepy, unsettling and strangely grounded. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
The Beguiled (2017) Joey Keogh Much like her debut feature, The Virgin Suicides, [Sofia] Coppola's unflinching, unrepentant female touch dominates everything. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
8/10 Trespassers (2018) Joey Keogh [Trespassers] maintains an impressively tense, eerie atmosphere throughout... It plays with our expectations, surprising us with each shocking new development. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
8/10 Daniel Isn't Real (2019) Joey Keogh One of the most gorgeous and compelling horror movies of the year. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
You Get Me (2017) Joey Keogh The movie was clearly inspired by more adult genre offerings, but the desire to target the super-lucrative teen market means that, for the most part, it doesn't go quite crazy enough to justify itself as a baby horror movie. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
6/10 3rd Night (2017) Joey Keogh [F]or the most part 3rd Night is a decent little thriller that never betrays its low budget limitations. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
4/10 Truth or Dare (2017) Joey Keogh Truth Or Dare is too safe to really commit to the darkness and instead leaves one wondering why it really needs to exist in the first place. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
8/10 Downrange (2017) Joey Keogh It's ruthless, efficient, and endlessly clever. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) Joey Keogh Dark Web is up there with the best Internet horror has to offer. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
Widows (2018) Joey Keogh Widows is an often devastating watch, a film that genuinely gave me a knot in my stomach and a lump in my throat, but it's also empowering as hell. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
Assassination Nation (2018) Joey Keogh Aside from being sex-positive and progressive, the movie is also, crucially, a celebration of female friendship. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
Suspiria (2018) Joey Keogh In the grand tradition of terrible remakes, Suspiria (2018) is another that has no reason to exist. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
7/10 Gwen (2018) Joey Keogh Gwen is all atmosphere, a chilly feeling permeating through every corner of its expertly-curated frame. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
4/10 Arbor Demon (2016) Joey Keogh By the end, Enclosure has far outstayed its welcome, lumbered with a decent concept that is neither fully developed, nor has enough scare potential to properly sell it. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
6/10 Mercy (2016) Joey Keogh For the most part, Mercy is a tense, often very frightening little home invasion chiller that makes great use of a terrific cast, isolated setting and some neat twists on the sub-genre. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
5/10 Wrong Trail (2016) Joey Keogh The body horror aspect of Downhill is strong enough on its own, but stuck in a movie that throws everything into the pot and stirs it all up just to see how it tastes, it's not hugely memorable. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
2/10 Broken (2016) Joey Keogh [Broken's] a movie that doesn't work either as a grimy kitchen sink thriller or a gut-wrenching, realistic drama. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
3/10 Ibiza Undead (2016) Joey Keogh It isn't particularly funny and the horror elements aren't strong enough to justify it as a real zombie movie. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
9/10 Beyond the Gates (2016) Joey Keogh Beyond The Gates is colourful and lively but it's packed with great spooks, especially when the very literal gates appear down in the basement. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
2/10 We Are the Flesh (2016) Joey Keogh There's nothing realistic about these scenes, nothing new or potentially boundary-pushing. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
4/10 My Father Die (2016) Joey Keogh Unfortunately, there's not much of a story here outside of the ill-advised revenge plot we've seen a million times over. EDIT
