Nocturne

Nocturne

A non-linear, slick horror film that bends the limits of reality but makes sense when everything comes together. Also, I have said this in many reviews, never mess around with a Ouija board, and if you do . . . always, ALWAYS say good bye! Otherwise you have just invited in any spirit that wants to come in. Think of it like your house, you wouldn’t just leave your front door open and not kick out unruly guests, would you? Especially not invisible guests with terrible dark powers! If only these “high school” kids had gotten the memo. The question isn’t if they’ll all die, it’s when and if you’ll even realize when it is happening.

If you are looking for a fresh perspective on the somewhat overdone Ouija board horror genre, Nocturne provides it with a compelling, and a bit confusing story-line. There are moments where nothing will make sense, until the very end, and the film never gets boring. I was definitely entertained.

Annabelle Creation

Annabelle: Creation

A creepy house in the middle of nowhere. A reclusive wife. A demonic doll. This is the recipe for the latest horror movie to hit the big screen Annabelle: Creation.

Samuel (Anthony LaPaglia) and Esther Mullins (Otto) live with their young daughter, Bee (Samara Lee) in a house outside of a small town. Samuel is a doll-maker who creates limited edition dolls for the toy-maker in town to sell. Unfortunately, Bee is taken from them in a tragic accident.

What’s wrong with Mrs. Mullins? Was that just a shadow or a shape in the darkness? What’s up with the dollhouse? Why does nobody hear what is going on in this creepy house? These are some of the questions I had while watching this film. Fortunately, most questions are answered.

A solid horror film with an interesting story, Annabelle: Creation led into its successor film Annabelle neatly. During the intense scenes, I jumped several times. I thought I might have to sleep with the lights on that night, but I was ok once I got into my house that was creepy doll-free!

XX (2017)

Now, XX came out in February 2017 and it takes about eighty minutes to tell it’s four stories, which are: The Box, The Birthday Party, Don’t Fall and Her Only Living Son. XX fills in the spots between the stories with this creepy (stop-motion) walking dollhouse that goes around interacting with different things in the room. Instead of using the whole movie to tie everything together, like one big story, the dollhouse ends up being like a fifth story that doesn’t really end up being anything, but a creepy walking dollhouse.

Overall, it’s not my favorite anthology by any means and it’s definitely in my one and done pile, but a couple of the stories are cool. Since I found this one on Netflix (as of 7/14/2017) if you’re having a sleepless night, give it a spin.

Raw

Raw

Swift shot: There’s something distinct about European films, a kind of realization that anything can happen, and it’s a freedom of expression that American audiences often don’t appreciate. From the opening scene to the film’s horrifying conclusion, you’re on alert that anything is possible in Raw. It’s a disturbing coming of age story about two sisters accepting their dominant role in the food chain.

Savageland

  Written/Directed by: Phil Guidry, Simon Herbert, David Whelan Cast: Noe Montes, Lawrence Ross, J.C. Carlos, George Savage The Josh Chop: If I could say one thing about Savageland it would be that it was a damn creepy documentary.
