REVIEW: Horror movie Pontypool is kind of like a zombie movie, kind of something else - Join in on #31DaysofHorror at onecriticalbitch.com

Pontypool

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy for complete info.* Every once in a while, something special comes along to shake up a genre that’s just a little stale. Pontypool may not be a zombie movie in a traditional sense, but it’s those little differences that make it truly memorable.

The Eclipse

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy.* Terrible news if you’ve been a fan of the in-your-face horror options presented thus far (See Halloween, Drag Me To Hell, and Identity). More along the lines of Absentia, but with a grander, more classic tone, The Eclipse is at its heart a romance. A romance with…

REVIEW: Identity (2003) starring John Cusack, Ray Liotta, and Amanda Peet - Join in on #31DaysofHorror at onecriticalbitch.com

Identity

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy for more info.* I’m a critic, not a reviewer. I don’t want to waste a lot of time covering films that don’t matter. Identity (2003) is not a film that I love, and in my re-watch this month, I’m not entirely sure it’s even a film…

REVIEW: Sam Raimi's Drag Me To Hell (2009) - Join in on #31DaysofHorror at onecriticalbitch.com

Drag Me To Hell

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy for more info* Nearly two decades since his last installment of Evil Dead flair (the cult classic Army of Darkness), Sam Raimi dropped his new comic book movie reputation to return to his roots. Drag Me To Hell is an homage to the past, but also a regeneration: proof that…

Absentia (2011)

What does it mean to be in absentia? Mike Flanagan, a tunnel, and a slippery little bug point us in some sort of direction. *Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead!

M. Night Shyamalan’s Signs (2002)

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! For full disclosure, scroll to the end of this post!* Are you old enough to remember a time when the name M. Night Shyamalan didn’t induce retching and dry heaves at the thought of another plot twist? Are you one of 24% of Rotten Tomatoes users that didn’t hate The Happening? (Are you a…

Halloween and Halloween II

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! For full disclosure, scroll to the end of this post!* 31 Horror Movies in 31 Days One year ago to the day I started this blog with a post about John Carpenter’s Halloween. I drew Michael Myers’ in his clown costume in pencil and watercolor, and wrote a piece about how…

Quick crit and review of Karyn Kusama's long-awaited horror/thriller "The Invitation" | onecriticalbitch.com

The Invitation is Haunted, Cultish, Creepy L.A. Horror at its Best

It took seven years for Karyn Kusama to follow-up her last feature film with The Invitation. It was worth the wait. The Invitation (2016) You look different, Edie.

Quick crit and review of Yorgos Lanthimos' dark comedy "The Lobster" | onecriticalbitch.com

The Lobster: Greek Myths and Lonely Men

The Lobster is the kind of movie you’re going to need to see twice. The Lobster (2016) Because lobsters live for over one hundred years, are blue-blooded like aristocrats, and stay fertile all their lives. I also like the sea very much. Three times. Possibly four. You’re going to need the appropriate amount of viewings to sort…

Charm Makes a Southern Belle: The Notebook and Boy Meets Girl

It’s two days into March and I’m bringing an official (and officially late) end to #ChickFlickFebruary. I wanted to end with something classic. I wanted to end with something new and different. I had a strong desire for something with a bit of a twang, maybe a Southern Belle, and crazy rich mothers with a lot of…
