    The Perfection

    ★★★½

    "The Perfection" is, at the same time, a psychological horror with all the elements to become a cult classic and a trashy grindhouse revenge flick.
    It's an interesting mix that results in a frenetic storyline that captures the viewer's curiosity to the end. However, when the curtains close, the feeling is that the excess of twists and expositions suffocate the narrative and transform the characters into caricatures of the genre.

    The direction, production and cast are good. Allison Williams (Get…

    Demons

    ★★★★

    "Demons", Lamberto Bava's magnum opus, is as straightforward with its plot as with its title. A random group of people are invited to a movie premiere and end up trapped in the theater with killer demons. And that's it!

    All characters are little explored and end up defined only by their reactions, appearance and death scene. There are some conflicts that are never fully developed, such as the cheating wife, the strange theater employee who seems to know more than…

    ★★★½

    It's too much weird that among the many atrocities committed in this film, what irritated me most was the girl throwing her boyfriend's notebook overboard? Seriously, this is unforgivable.

    Ezra Godden, who also works with director Stuart Gordon in "Dreams in the Witch House" episode from "Master of Horror", plays a non-standard protagonist. Nerdy (although still very handsome), clumsy and fearful, Paul (Godden) never gets things the way he wants, can't save anyone or even himself, but still, he keeps…

    The Open House

    ½

    Another cheap psychological horror film from Netflix, just like last year's "Clinical" and so many others. Here you can find a huge selection of the most worn-out clichés of the genre. All performed in the most boring way possible.

    This movie has no soul. It looks like it was made by a robot. And most of the time it seems that it's interpreted by robots as well.

    Dylan Minnette goes through the entire film alternating between two facial expressions: boredom…

    Hereditary

    ★★★★★

    What a wicked and sick film. I loved it!

    Many people blamed a critic who said that this movie was "The Exorcist" of this generation for causing a false expectation about the real intent of the film. I agree with him. "Hereditary", in many ways, is a profound evolution of the central fear addressed by the 1973 classic: the fear of losing control of one's own body and mind. But this time, without the focus on the contortions, the rotting…
