Eerie: Movie Review

All in all, Eerie felt like a waste of time and good opportunity, to be completely honest. There was a chance to improve up the ante on the Pinoy horror genre given that there was the combination of talent, budget and marketing for it but instead, filmmakers chose to play safe and deliver a sub-par version of an old concept.

The Wailing: Korean Movie Review

All in all, The Wailing’s main intention was to shock and scare audiences into the various forms evil can take. It compels audiences to explore their own hearts and evaluate what extent they could go to protect someone dear.

This is why it is still familiar even though the show has already evolved in so many ways. I think I’ll stick around for a season or two more to see what happens next.  … Read More Stranger Things: Season 3 Review

Svaha: The Sixth Finger Movie Review

All in all, “Svaha: The Sixth Finger” was far from extraordinary. It was not scary. It was not thought-provoking. It was boring, but it did touch on the very real issue of religious fanaticism, which is present in all types of religion, left unchecked. It was a movie that technically did everything right but failed on the level that it did not evoke much of an impact given the material it covered. Sometimes, talking above an audience’s head takes its toll and it took its toll for this movie, big time. For me, at least.… Read More Svaha: The Sixth Finger Movie Review
