Impressions: It Follows

I wasn’t sure what to think when I sat down to watch It Follows. This movie seemed to come out of nowhere. I was shocked to discover it was from 2014 considering I had never heard of it until recently when I started hearing about it non stop. It also didn’t help that most people…

Impressions: The Void

I found myself struggling to get this impressions piece done. I somehow have a lot to say about this movie and yet very little. There is so much to process and talk about that I find myself struggling to focus. For a bit of background, The Void was a crowd-funded movie that initially came out…

They started out as mainly being horror films that featured “giant monsters”, and gained their rise especially during atomic fears. Through…

Impressions: Train to Busan

I will admit a degree of ignorance when I went into this movie. I have seen some Korean films, but overall I could hardly call myself knowledgeable about them. Friends with more knowledge of Korean films highly recommended this to me and used the phrase “not a typical zombie film” to describe it. This was…

Worst Horror Movie Endings

This whole piece will contain a lot of spoilers. We are talking about worst endings so we will of course talk about the endings. The Descent (American) I am not sure what to make of the American ending of this movie. For those that haven’t seen either version The Descent has two almost identical endings,…
