  • REVIEW: AHS: 1984

    March 20, 2020 by

    “Remember in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, when Titus auditions for the new musical Spider-Man Too: 2 Many Spider-Man? 1984 is essentially that, but with slasher villains.”

    Due to some serious family commitments and the current, um, pandemic—there’s a sentence I never thought I’d write—I’m a week behind on my reviews.

  • Review: Downhill (2020)

    February 14, 2020 by

  • Review: The Turning (2020)

    “For obvious marketing reasons, trailers and advertisements for the film already told you the movie is an “anti-hate satire,” instead of, say, “the funniest Nazis you’ve seen all year.””
