In new horror movie Brightburn, a child from another world crash-lands on Earth, only instead becoming a hero to mankind, he’s something far worse.
Directed by David Yarovesky; Elizabeth Banks, Meredith Hagner, David Denman, Jackson A. Dunn, Matt Jones and star…
I’m drawn to this because I like Banks. Whether I make it to the theatre or not is another matter entirely. I mean, after all, this is categorised as horror rather than horror / drama / mystery, like A Quiet Place (2017) – scary-ish movie I had no issue watching.
Piercing is the Nicolas Pesce directed thriller / horror about a man with a plan. A man with a plan to check into a hotel, call an escort service and kill an unsuspecting prostitute; and all after kissing his wife and baby goodbye.
Key cast includes Christopher Abbott, Mia Wasikowska, Laia Costa…
The weirdness of the trailer grabbed my attention. What Piercing has to say about a man such as the one in this story, and how he came to have a plan such as his, that’s what has me most curious.
Probably unsurprisingly, this movie makes me want to re-watch American Psycho (2000).
Wendell Pierce, Olivia Bond, Marin Ireland, Dakota Lustick and Maria Dizzia also star.
Mother!, the Darren Aronofsky directed mystery / horror film about uninvited guests who disrupt a couple’s tranquil existence is a weird movie.
Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer, the acting is great of course but what I enjoyed most about the film has nothing to do with acting. As controversial as this is, the beautiful single braid on Lawrence’s head… so effortless and gorgeous. That’s my favourite thing about Mother!
Part of my issue with Aronofsky’s movie is that I can’t say I fully get it. I found myself getting mad at the close-up shots and about an hour into the film, I was thinking: ‘Resolve this mystery already!’
What’s also quite unfortunate about me not really understanding Mother! is that I’m definitely not interested enough to watch it again on the off chance that I may finally get it.
The way Lawrence and Bardem’s characters were so obviously grossly mismatched as a couple rather annoyed me. Bardem’s character’s lack of consideration towards his wife really made me mad and because I didn’t understand why he was being that way, it simply made matters worse.
If you’re an Aronofsky fan, I say give this movie a chance because you may like it. Just remember that Mother! is definitely more mystery than horror, so don’t let the word ‘horror’ dissuade you or get you too excited.
If you think I totally missed the point of this movie, you’re very welcome to enlighten me in the comments below.
Directed by Daniel Goldhaberan, Cam is a new thriller / mystery / horror about an ambitious camgirl named Alice. Alice wakes up one day to find that she’s been replaced on her show with an exact replica of herself.
Devin Druid, Imani Hakim and Michael Dempsey also star…
This looks pretty good to me. A hopefully ‘non-nightmare inducing’ kind of scary. I also really want to know how exactly how it is that the creep managed to replace Alice.
Directed by Adam Robitel; Deborah Ann Woll, Tyler Labine, Jay Ellis and Taylor Russell or the stars of Escape Room. A new thriller about six strangers who must use their wits to survive after finding themselves in circumstances beyond their control…
I’ve never partaken in an escape room scenario and this movie certainly won’t get me any closer. Yet I find myself intrigued.
