6/10: I kind of enjoyed it...
Tuesday, October 5, 2021

I kind of enjoyed it! Based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Adam Nevill, this film is about Amber, an illegal immigrant who stayed in Mexico to care for her sick mother until the older woman died. Now in Cleveland, her American dream is constantly destroyed by people taking her dignity, her money and perhaps, they'll even take her life.The boardinghouse in which Amber lives keeps giving her horrific visions, but she can't afford to leave. And when the owner and his brother lock her into it, she assumes the worst. Well, it's even worse than that.There's a reveal here - as to what is really in the house and causes the spirits that Amber can see - that is pretty audacious. But the truth is that the most frightening parts of this film are not the supernatural moments, but the way that humans become inhuman to immigrants and grind them into nothing...

7/10: Meso-American Myths No One...
Saturday, October 2, 2021

Meso-American Myths No One Gets Out Alive: A ramshackle old home, turned into a boarding house is one of the main stars of this film. It's corridors and dark rooms contain creaks, cries and noises, suggestions that something strange is going on. We know from the prologue that the residence is connected to an archaeological expedition to Meso-America and artifacts from the mission are stored there. Ambar (Cristina Rodlo) is an immigrant, hiding her illegal status, exploited in a sweatshop, trying to buy papers. She moves into the boarding house and encounters ghosts. A tale of terror, exploitation and human sacrifice. Some good ghostly apparitions together with poltergeist effects. This is also a story of a struggle for survival in the physical and spiritual senses, both inside and without the house. Very much influenced by Meso-American mythology. Directed by Santiago Menghini, screenplay by Jon Croker and Fernanda Coppel, based on the 2014 novel by Adam Nevill...

6/10: Maybe because I'm drunk...
Friday, October 1, 2021

Maybe because I'm drunk but i actually enjoyed that I'm quite drunk but that was actually enjoyable. I thought going into it, it would be a boring none scary Netflix horror. However I was completely wrong. It was very ere all the time and was actually scary, you can't knock it. The story might've been a bit hard to follow hence why it gets a 6 and nothing higher. But a 6 is a lot higher then I thought I'd be giving this at the start. This has nothing to do with the film but the main character was so sexy it's ridiculous. All in all though genuinely not a bad horror and decent horrors are really hard to come by nowadays. Might I add also, Netflix films have improved so much. You get so much better Netflix films now then when you did at the start, I'm really enjoying them.

7/10: Living (in) it I have...
Tuesday, October 5, 2021

Living (in) it I have to admit I did not even know this was based on a novel (as another reviewer suggests in his review). So obviously I cannot talk about how this fares against the written counterpart/source. Although I reckon it is safe to say that the novel probably is better.That being said, if you don't have a preconceived notion of what the movie should be like ... the movie does a fairly decent job of bringing us up close and personal to our main character ... having us at the edge of our seat and keeping us invested and interested overall. There is some .. not so well done CGI towards the end ... if that really bothers you I'd understand.

5/10: Let me get this straight...
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Let me get this straight Two brothers sacrifice immigrant women to some giant moth creature thing because one of the brothers is sick. Apparently feeding heads to this monsters vagina helps cure the brothers sickness. Also the ghosts of these women haunt the boarding house they live in. After spending 3 hours watching this film because it couldn't keep my attention, I finally got it. It had a fairly original plot, but for the most part it's basically just a supernatural haunted house flick with a strange monster in the end. Some people will like it some people will hate it. 5 stars.
