A Haunting in Venice

The spirits within push this Branagh mystery franchise higher. Kenneth Branagh’s take on Hercule Poirot has transitioned from an Agatha Christie character to an iconic movie name, and I’m not insulting literature in any way. Three films have made and… Read More ›

The Nun II

This sequel conjures up too many scares. Here’s one of my opening quotes in my review of “The Nun” back in 2018. “No matter what the trailers say (“The Darkest Chapter in the Conjuring Universe”), it’s still the same old… Read More ›

They Cloned Tyrone

Bring on the conspiracy and attitude! John Boyega, Teyonah Parris, and Jamie Foxx all make a dream team in the Netflix satire “They Cloned Tyrone.” In the post “Get Out” era, the film pokes fun at conspiracy theories aimed at… Read More ›

Insidious: The Red Door

Not much of a sequel or directorial debut. The first “Insidious” film from 2011 was scary, especially with its title card being loud and freaky. The second film, at least, had one memorable scene. The third was forgettable. The fourth… Read More ›

Scream VI

Live from New York, it’s Ghostface! “Scream VI,” once again directed by Radio Silence, continues this meta horror franchise where the characters continue to acknowledge they’re in a franchise. And as if that weren’t enough, Ghostface is back to raise… Read More ›

We Have a Ghost

This paranormal activity isn’t as funny as it should have been. If director Christopher Landon can specialize in horror comedies, as demonstrated with time warps in “Happy Death Day” and body swap comedies in “Freaky,” then he should have specialized… Read More ›
