THE BELKO EXPERIMENT (2016)

The Belko Experiment is written by James Gunn, the man who brought us the incredible Guardians of the Galaxy series and is directed by Greg McLean of whom I knew very little. I haven’t seen any of his previous films but heard some very negative words about some of them. But I was still excited…

LIFE (2017)

Oh my God! How did I miss this film for so long? Life is a claustrophobic and gruesome masterpiece that is far away from being a creature flick but at the same time has a monster that will make you shit your pants. This film is a testimony to the fact that the size of…

GET OUT (2017)

**SPOILER ALERT** Get Out is Jordan Peele’s directorial debut and is a different take on the horror genre. This is one of the most original horror films of the year so far and I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting what it turned out to be. Getting surprised by a film is a rare…

ALIEN : COVENANT (2017)

Alien: Covenant is a follow up to Prometheus which was a prequel to Alien and Aliens. I couldn’t understand the hate that Prometheus got from the viewers and critics alike. Personally, I liked the film quite a bit and the reasons were the visual effects, the engrossing tale and above all the captivating look and…

RINGS (2017)

What do you call a horror film that is not scary? A total disaster and that’s exactly what Rings is. Contrary to what many critics had to say, I enjoyed the second installment of The Ring. The first one was a delightful horror film and the fact that I had not seen its original up…

THE NEON DEMON (2016)

Nicholas Winding Refn has this unique ability to make films that you may love or hate, but you simply cannot ignore. I still haven’t been able to sit through “Only God Forgives”, but I keep hearing and reading about it even today, years after its release. The Neon Demon is his latest offering and it…

DON’T BREATHE (2016)

Don’t Breathe is the kind of nightmare that you wake up crying for your mama. It is a wildly scary and edge-of-the-seat thriller that works on varied levels. The film is relentless from start to finish and even after it reaches a point where you think that all is done, it just keeps coming at…

BEFORE I WAKE (2016)

Before I wake is a gorgeous looking film that sort of paces on the line between horror and fantasy. It gives you some serious scares towards the end and some of it are the all so well-known jump scares but a large portion of the film is a fantastical journey of two adults into the…

THE CONJURING 2 (2016)

While researching about the Enfield Poltergeists, on which this film is based, I couldn’t help but notice a stark polarization of views about the incidents. While a large chunk of skeptics believe that the events were nothing more than pranks that were conjured up by two highly imaginative girls who were aided by their brothers…

10 CLOVERFIELD LANE (2016)

10 Cloverfield Lane is not exactly a sequel to the amazingly interesting and affecting monster-attack found footage film Cloverfield. However it does have connections to it which are revealed right at the end. For the greater part of the film, it hits you like a claustrophobic holed-up flick wherein there is a man who is…

THE WITCH (2015)

The Witch is truly one of the most scary and innovative horror films made in the recent times. What makes this film special is the fact that this film is not so much about the horror as it is about the disintegration of a fully functional family as they come face to face with an…

HUSH (2016)

Hush is a film which can be found on Netflix right now which I believe should have got a wider release primarily because of its quality. It is terrifying in certain parts and absorbing throughout. It’s not like that we haven’t seen films like this before but just that it is very well made and…
