Happy Death Day (2017) – Movie Review

Happy Death Day (2017) – Movie Review

A Blumhouse slasher horror flick Happy Death Day has a very aptly used Groundhog Day reference point when a college girl finds herself trapped in a time loop to relive her murder day over and over again until she figures out her killer.

Hangman (2015): Home Invasion Thriller

Hangman (2015): Home Invasion Thriller

This found-footage thriller Hangman directed by little known (at least for me) Adam Mason has received mixed reviews from the critics. So, I wanted to give it a try with hope that it’s not like one of those mediocre horror flicks I watched lately.  The films starts with the Miller family who has just returned from vacation […]

Debutant writer-director Robert Eggers hit the right punch at the right time with the film The Witch when horror genre is challenging filmmakers to live up to the high expectations in terms of subject matter, narration and elements of horror that’s should no way be cliché. If I have to introduce the film in just one […]
