IT (2017)

IT is based on a book by Stephen King that many claims to be one of his scariest works. In preparation for this review, I watched the miniseries that was the recreation of the same story. This film, however, sets itself on only half of the story. The kids in the town of Derry encounter…

ANNABELLE: CREATION (2017)

**Spoilers Alert** David F. Sandberg, the maker of this film is a prolific horror film maker who has been making short horror films for film festivals and his YouTube channel “ponysmasher”. I have been following his channel post the success of Lights Out and I believe to understand why Annabelle: Creation is so very interesting…

CHANDRAMUKHI (2005)

If you watch television, you couldn’t have missed Chandramukhi. It is considered to be one of the biggest hits of Rajnikanth and also the one that re-established him as the super star that he is now. I watched Chandramukhi quite a few times before but never liked it enough to write a review about it….

IT (1990) – Mini Series

Stephen King has mesmerized generations of bibliophiles with his intricate mysteries and when we speak of the horror genre, one of his creations that is mentioned the most is “IT”. The story about a marauding evil spirit that takes up the shape of a clown and hunts kids has an ominous ring to it. I…

THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN (2008)

The Midnight Meat Train is a film that I saw when I was in college. I neither had my blog at that time nor any inclination to writing but it was one film that I talked about to my friends probably zillion time. The reason for that was simple. This is a film that takes…

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…
