    Again, Samuel Loomis got the best line.

    Halloween (2018) review

    I watched the original Halloween for the first time the very evening before I watched the 2018 film in the cinema. Since then, I have actively avoided the sequels. I knew most of the details of Halloween II, including the twist, prior to watching it today, and I was content with just knowing. It is worth mentioning that a portion of…

    Cold Skin

    ★★½

    Cold Skin is moderately enjoyable, visually compelling and has a fairly interesting premise.

    I began watching Twin Peaks for the first time on February 25th and concluded Season 2 on March 3rd. I have yet to watch FWWM or The Return, which I intended on getting to shortly. So, a bit of a binge watch. And what I consumed was some of the best television ever made. And you can quote me on that. I'm not familiar at all with David Lynch, this being my first introduction to his work, but I already…
