    Child's Play

    ★★★½

    Way better than it had any right to be. The first act is particularly brilliant...hilarious and creepy in equal measure. Mark Hamil shines as the new Chucky.  The second half is pretty generic slasher stuff, but it contains some excellent kill scenes. There’s life in this old doll yet.

    ★★★★½

    Gruelling, powerful, devastating, terrifying...if it was a wee bit shorter it’d be pretty much perfect. Not a whole lot of fun and  I probably won’t ever watch this again (DO NOT expect The Babadook)...but my god...what a feat of filmmaking. Jennifer Kent nails it again 👌

    ★★★★

    I love Jordan Peele’s brain. ‘Us’ feels like it’s crammed with huge, ambitious ideas and has so much to say. It works best when being unapologetically bonkers and basking in its surreal chilling images and creepy soundtrack (that I Got 5 On It remix!!!), but is least interesting when ticking conventional home invasion horror movie boxes and grinding to a halt to provide exposition. It’s no Get Out, but what is? I’m already eager to see it a second time. The horror genre is a more interesting place with Jordan Peele in it.

    Maps To The Stars meets The Square meets Final Destination meets Argento's Stenhal Sndrome.
    Loved it.
    Here's to more 'Art Slashers.'
