Horror

Upgrade

There are some good ideas in “Upgrade,” which make the movie interesting. I consider this a B-movie with some silly effects, but a lot of fun and nice acting going on. Writer/director Leigh Whannell (“Saw,” “Insidious”) and producer Jason Blum… Read More ›

A Quiet Place

There’s a certain type of movie-goers I’d like to define, based on box office results, and that type is what I always call: Horror Moths. Mostly for jump scares (the ones I’ve skipped for obvious reasons), I mock them with… Read More ›
