Valentine’s Day 2018: Making Enthusiastic Consent Great Again

Happy Valentine’s Day! Do you think enthusiastic consent is a liberal talking point that eliminates the sexiness from film/art/life in general? Welcome to February 2018 and – Let’s address that. I’m not sure when we all collectively decided that the hottest, most erotic, sexiest moments involved, “You need kissing badly, that’s what’s wrong with you,”…

Horror That Grows On You: Mike Thorn’s Darkest Hours

Horror stories: “What could possibly be more natural?” Surprisingly, not my thought, but Theodore’s. A record store owner with a seemingly unnatural desire for a very natural substance – hair. Namely, that of strangers, what sits in corners collecting dust, and even the wefts that begin to sprout from his very own tongue. This is…

Choosing a Valentine’s Day Movie: A Comprehensive Guide

Me choosing a Valentine’s Day movie for you is like picking a chocolate out of one of those heart-shaped Russell-Stover boxes that’s missing its map. You just don’t know what you’re gonna get – or if it’s gonna make you barf. I’ve put together a comprehensive list of the Valentine’s Day movies that I’d choose…

MOVIE REVIEW: Leigh Janiak's Honeymoon is a horror/thriller bound to make you think twice about who you're marrying | onecriticalbitch.com

Honeymoon

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy for complete info.*   The first in this year’s series (but certainly not the last) to be written and directed by a woman, Honeymoon is everything a horror movie should be. It’s also something new, something different, and dare I say – maybe something better.

MOVIE REVIEW: Olatunde Osunsanmi's THE FOURTH KIND | onecriticalbitch.com

The Fourth Kind

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy for complete info.* It’s fair to say The Fourth Kind is not well reviewed. Rotten Tomatoes’ critics’ consensus calls it “hokey,” “clunky,” and somehow “makes its close encounters seem eerily mundane.” I don’t disagree with any of those thoughts, per say. It is a little hokey. It can be really…

REVIEW: Jack the Ripper and Johnny Depp in FROM HELL (2001) - Join in on #31DaysofHorror at onecriticalbitch.com

From Hell

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy for complete info.* From Hell  is that  sort of odd 2000s conundrum: a self-serious historical thriller with the editing style of a teen slasher pic. I can’t defend Heather Graham’s difficulty with a cockney accent, but I do have a soft spot for the flashy cuts…

REVIEW: Mumblegore from the likes of Patrick Brice and Mark Duplass in "Creep" 92014) - Join in on #31DaysofHorror at onecriticalbitch.com

Creep

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy for complete info.* I don’t like found footage horror and I seriously struggle with mumblecore (this is a thing, we’ll discuss it). But I really think I like Patrick Brice and Mark Duplass’s little aptly named creeper, Creep.
