The Haunting of Sharon Tate

The Haunting of Sharon Tate is Far From Perfect but Not Entirely Without Merit [Review]

The Haunting of Sharon Tate very loosely reimagines the Manson Family murders that took place at 10050 Cielo Drive. The film focuses on Sharon Tate’s nightmares and the question of whether our f...

The Cleaning Lady

Haunted Hospital (Heilstätten) Needs the Infirmary [Blu-Ray Review]

Originality is overrated. The best stories are the ones that execute well. Wes Craven’s classic Scream is a pastiche. With the exception of the Billy/Stu reveal at the end, it borrows every blood-soak...

Suspiria (2018) casts a Powerful but Polarizing Spell [Blu-ray Review]
