Hellboy Movie Review

It is also a throw back to the horror movies of a bygone era. With its rampant gore, buckets of blood and entrails o’ plenty, it most certainly lives up to its R rating. It’s an unadulterated blast to see. David Harbour (Stranger Things, The Newsroom) presented a take on the red one that came across a little off the mark in the trailer but in full movie form, he seems a much wiser choice. Having the gravitas of Ian McShane as Professor Broom is also a major addition.   // ...

Pet Sematary Movie Review

It also rewards fans of the original film with moments like a delicious bait and switch scene that was as self-referential as it was fun. The actors are given slow burn roles and in particular Jason Clarke’s turn from sensible family man to shrunken eyed loon is a hoot. The transition of daughter, Ellie (Jeté Laurence) is also arresting.   //   For those with a good working knowledge of the basic storyline, via both Stephen King’s book and the original film, there ...

Happy Death Day 2U Movie Review

The main concept behind HDD2U is so far from left-field, it does a decent job of recreating the film in a new light. At first the continuity comes from the return of the four main characters from the first edition before the film loses focus from too many different plot lines.   //   Jessica Rothe as the blonde heroine Tree Gelbman, Ruby Modine as the homicidal roommate Lori Spengler, Rachel Matthews as the sorority sister Danielle Bouseman and Israel Broussard as the ...
