The Dark Stranger (2015) The Dark Stranger, written and directed by Chris Trebilcock, has a strong core conceit that it unfortunately executes haphazardly. Katie Findlay (How to Get Away with Murder) stars as Leah, a young artist who has become agoraphobic and hallucination-prone as she attempts to process the trauma of losing her mother to […]

The Babadook (2014) I don’t want to give too much away with this one, so this will be short and I’ll let you see The Babadook for yourself. I was lucky enough to see it in a single screen theatre in Los Angeles, introduced by William Friedkin—the one and only director of The Exorcist—who told […]

The Gift (2015) I’m glad I didn’t read much about The Gift before watching. It isn’t a horror film in the classic sense; there are very little scares. However, the film definitely has its horrifying moments, and I would certainly characterize it as a psychological thriller. Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn (Rebecca Hall), who are living […]

It Follows (2014) I’m going to get a lot of flak for this, but I don’t think It Follows necessarily deserved all of the praise that it got. David Robert Mitchell’s It Follows is an atmospheric supernatural horror film set in Michigan (my home state.) The beginning of the film was very promising; something seemed […]

The Serpent and the Rainbow (1988) The Serpent and the Rainbow, directed by Wes Craven, is a zombie film based in Haiti where the zombies really aren’t the ones you should be afraid of. The film begins with a man dying at a clinic while a man covered in black clothing leers outside his window. […]
