The Invitation – Thriller Review

  Director Karyn Kusama’s psychological thriller The Invitation is an incredible example of how you can keep the sense of menace alive in a simple storyline.

Solace (Review): Hopkins, the only saving grace

Solace (Review): Hopkins, the only saving grace

With two central characters having extrasensory perception, director Afonso Poyart (Two Rabbits) tries to dive into the zone of David Fincher’s 90s classic Se7en (Seven) in this new serial killer thriller Solace.
