Heat

Finally watched this film for the first time and I absolutely loved it to bits. As I sat there sweating through the UK heatwave — my apartment being three or four degrees higher — I became lost in this world of LA. It goes without saying that Al Pacino and Robert Deniro are at the top of their games in this film, but i’m gonna say it anyway… …they are both so fucking great. As are all the other performances…

Thoughts on The people under the stairs

The people under the stairs poster

I finally faced my childhood trauma by watching The people under the stairs in full. I saw sections of it as a child and remember only the image of children running from something in the wall cavities of a old creepy house. It was an absolute surprise and joy to see Everett McGill and Wendy Robie as an on-screen couple again after their iconic partnership in David Lynch’s Twin Peaks as Ed and Nadine Hurley. Credited as simply ‘Man’ and…

Rosemarys Baby

The haunting story of a woman carrying her first child, struggling to keep it all together. However, she begins to suspect outside forces are working against her and her family’s safety.

It was a fun and visually stunning two-and-a-bit-hour romp across the galaxy. A true good versus evil tale that left me feeling like I’d had a good…

Thoughts on A Nightmare on Elm Street

A Nightmare on Elm Street is one of the most recognisable titles in cinema – as is it’s villain, and star, Freddy Krueger. I felt the urge to re-watch this film after my recently-formed gaming obsession with Dead By Daylight. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that much of the film still holds up to modern viewing. What is A Nightmare on Elm Street about? A Nightmare on Elm Street follows four high-school kids, who are all experiencing almost…

Thoughts on the film “Neon Demon”

With its gorgeous visuals and pulsing soundtrack, Neon Demon is a film that I won’t be forgetting in a hurry. The majority of the story felt to me like it was floating in and out of the conscious mind, with an increasing level of abstract as it went on. What’s The Neon Demon about? The Neon Demon follows fresh-faced, 16-year-old model Jesse, played by Elle Fanning, as she enters the harsh world of fashion modelling. We follow her from her…
