Culture Crypt is the most reliable website for genre movie reviews and the best in popular culture, specializing in independent horror film entertainment.
I can commend the filmmakers for putting in honest effort to deliver the best formulaic “found footage” horror movie they could, even if the end result is dully redundant.
Let’s cut the quibbling over distinctions between psychological thriller, dark drama, fabulist fantasy, or whatever other words one wants to misapply to sidestep calling a fig a fig.
“Happy Death Day” marks a maturity point for Blumhouse’s previously shortsighted takes on PG-13 horror.
“68 Kill” gets away with its gobs of grindhouse grain by slathering scenery in dark humor and switching stereotypes regarding which sex wields the power.
Lean, clean, and compact with more motivation than most, “The Unraveling” is a refreshingly respectable piece of streamlined suspense cinema.
