Promising Young Woman invents a new genre. Maybe that’s an overstatement – it might be clearer to say that it iterates a new genre. This is a modern-day rape revenge story, a reimagining of an archaic exploitation genre that’s since been relegated to DTV schlock (think the execrable I Spit On Your Grave remake franchise)…
Stanley’s film eschews familiar threats for something indefinable.
There’s something satisfying about a well-executed B-movie. Underwater well and truly fits the bill.
Knives Out is a classic whodunit, defined by plentiful lies and a ludicrous set of twists and turns engulfing its oversized characters.
Dark Fate is, in my book, the best attempt to continue the Terminator franchise since 1991. It’s a shame that it just happens to be dead on arrival.
There’s nothing especially original about neo-slasher The Furies, but its purity sets it apart.
Horror comedies are hard. Ready or Not proves they don’t have to be.
There aren’t enough films like Animals.
Far From Home returns to the easy comedic tone that buoyed the last Spider-Man outing.
What elevates Parabellum above its John Wick predecessors is a sharp sense of humour.
