Deadpool 2 (2018)
some parts are too long
As much as I liked the first one this one for me had it ups and downs. Where th efirst one was full of funny situations this one goes a step further and has more funny conversations but they were here and teher a bit too long.
The effects were stunning and yes, I laughed it out here and there and the story is okay but maybe the flick could be shorter. As I said, some parts are too long, the part in the seat were he has short legs, funny from the start but after a while it start to be annoying.
So not that good as the first one, surprise is gone but still worth picking up.

I had this for months in my list on netflix but not realy into King adaptions is what made it wait in that particular list. But after my wife read the book she saif-d, go ahead give it a try.
And I must say, not bad after all. A bit creepy here and there but what made it for me was the accent used and the heat alsmost coming out of your screen. As did winter.
Can't say that it is scary but I really was into the movie from start to the end. Everybody can watch this, a nice surprise.

absurd, another Netflix surprise
If you are into hard action flicks then this is your thing but you have to take the absurdness with it. If you like the Punisher series then watch it without hesitation.
Face it, what the main character has to stand through normally you are death but hey, if you can stand things that can't be seen in real life then you will like this. It's absurd and brutal. And the story isn't that bad after all. Perfect casting, clichés all over, really, another Netflix surprise for me.
Be advised, it has a lot of blood and gratuitous nudity.

Nicolas Cage, so much is said about him, from a blockbuster actor towards the downfall into weird horrors. Do I mind, no because it's a typical Cage that we have here. But a weird one.
It's is extremely slow with a lot of slo-mo which doesn't add towards the viewing of this flick. To make it more surrealistic, the colors used are almost red and lights used are fading in and out so over all it's a dark flick.
Is it all that bad, yes and no, because clocking in around 2 hours makes it a hard one to watch. First hour is blah blah and some action, second part is the revenge part. It's there that Cage becomes notable. His eyes, his face, covered in blood makes it a must see for his fans. It's bloody in some parts, but not gory at all. The characters he come across are human, sickies and some weird people with masks.
Horror, in some parts yes, arty, in some parts yes. So not for everyone but geeks out there knowing Cage from his latest flicks do know what to expect.

really well made independent movie
What can I say about this independent gem. Yes, it's a gem because you really got into the life of the 15 year old girl. Her life is just one piece of trash. Growing up with her mother isn't fun. Mother has no money so prostitution is the only remedy to earn money.
The girl has to wait in the car for her mother while she's doing it so slowly she also gets into the world of selling your body. Jessica Taylor Haid playing the 15 year old prostitute gives an excellent performance. It's was her first flick and to do all this stuff you see a big thumb up. There's a lot of nudity going on and some will be offended by it because she's fifteen of course.
Not a happy movie after all and shows the life of so many youth in the USA. No work is no money is no place to stay. Great performances, good filming and editing, okay there's a continuity fault on the beach with the girl her socks but hey. If that's all...if you find this and can stand sad stories then pick it up.

He's Out There (2018)
would file it under slasher
It offers what it has to do, giving you scary parts. With th etwo kids involved of course it all looks a bit more creepy 'cause all they do is screaming and yelling. Ther e isn't that much explained but it doesn't matter. This is a bit of a throwback to the slasher genre.
Mother and her two kids going to theircabin, daddy will arrive later, everything goes well until a psychopath starts to endanger them. They are trapped in the house so it's up to them to escape.
Effects are well done, killings of slashing looked believable. No gore attached but still worth picking up as an opener for your slasher evening among friends.

The House That Jack Built (2018)
too long and to many conversations
Due the fuzz at the Cannes festival concerning the viewers and this flick immediately it became a must see. Already knowing that some fuzz is pure publicity (Hereditary for example) others are real.
So finally I could pick this up and see what it was all about. And once over I do had mixed emotions. Clocking in over 2 hours is way too long. There are moments that he speaks and speaks with his victim that I really thought, go on, kill her.
Further on it's all about a serial killer but knowing Trier it is a arthouse flick. So a lot is explained with footage. Let be the footage the most shocking in this flick. Animals being killed or moments are shown of Nazi's and their concentration camps. The killings itself are okay and in fact it did remind me of Man Bites Dog (1992) and Portrait Of A Serial Killer (1989). But those particular flicks are more brutal. As Man Bites Dog was on the edge of becoming funny even as it was as brutal as hell here we have the same. A few moments I thought, really?
Toend, shocking for many I agree but way too long and a lot of conversations that are a bit boring but that made you go into the mind of the serial killer. Not really my cup of tea.

The Amityville Murders (2018)
doesn't add a thing and slow
By now I guess everybody know the history of 112 Ocean Avenue. Based on true events so many flicks were made about the most famous possessed house that it wasn't neccesary to make another one.
the 1979 and 2005 version were okay, all other flicks in the franchise wer pure fiction and only made a business on the name Amityville.
So another if you like remake here that adds nothing to the story. Extremely slow, no scary parts, the ghost effects were laughable. The killings are really not the name horror worthly. Only the dream sequences of the death family is bloody.
The last 5 minutes are the best, footage from 1974 and a bit of history of the Lutz family moving in for only 28 days.

The Hollow Child (2017)
cover looks scary, but the flick isn't
But not that bad as you should think after seen my headline. A bit of fantasy and ghost story mixed. Starts off great and with an atmosphere that immediately got me attached to the screen. But when the movie moves a few years further that particular atmosphere is gone never to return.
Not scary at all, let me say that teh cover shown is the scariest thing you will see. Sure, some blood here and there on faces but no gore whatsoever to see. One moment you think okay here we are going to see something sadly, off-camera and no result what the stone did (avoiding spoilers).
Story is okay but with the fantasy part makes it a bit weird. Rebel teens in it, lesbian of course, troubles at home,...so youth will pick this up and will like it for sure but for me as an old geek, naah

What Keeps You Alive (2018)
just above mediocre
This flick do has potential to really be a horror flick but for me it just wasn't that frightening at all. Also, it takes a while before the horror comes in and yes, you don't see it coming or maybe you think what will happen. From there this is a pure survival horror with a few nasty parts, and some that could have more gore attached.
Acting is above mediocre. Clearly low budget because only a few actors in it and not that much of effects. Due a bit predictable some will turn this down. Nice surprise at the end. Ideal to start your evening before picking up the real stuff.

The Lodgers (2017)
it do has it moments
I did like this one and I can agree that some doesn't because it's slow and it's a bit about romance too but the overall look of this flick was a rather weird ghost story in some way.
Brother and sister, twins, living together as the why is explained because otherwise I would spoil it can't leave the big mansion because they are sticked to it as did the family for centuries. The sister do goes out and falls in love. But from that point this flick attracts some eerie moments. It never is frightening but I did want to know what is going on and how the relation between brother and sister would turn out. Towards the end it crosses the bounderies of an arty movie which could be a bit too much for some. Gorehounds or real horror lovers should stay away from this but i you dig mysterious flicks with a strange story then it's worth picking up.

The Dark Tower (2017)
Never been a fan of King adoptations on film and this one wans't my thing neither. i don't know why but I found it a bit too laughable and I never really got into this flick.
So many movies these days with kids being the heroes or having a leading role due the Stranger Things success and it made me even think of flicks like Maze Runner. Not my thing at all, even as it has a lot to do with sci-fi and it do has action it reminds me somehow also on western flicks, maybe the revolvers used did that?

the true follow-up, but a bit over the top with Strode's house
Finally, after 40 years the one and only follow-up of the original Halloween (1978). The makers told us, with back-up of John Carpenter, forget the other flicks in the sequel, this is the one and only true story. So a hype was created and geeks all over the world praised this as the horror flick of 2018.
With the opening titles being done in yellow and the pumpkin it truly gave us a feeling of this was made in the heydays of slashers. So far so good, but it do takes almost 30 minutes before the first thing go wrong. The visit of journalists to Michael at the asylum and showing him the mask, I didn't liked it, what does it add towards the flick, towards the story?
The restroom, it's where things really starts and going back to Haddonfield made the viewer waiting for the massacre starting allover again. Michael does what he does best, mayhem at Halloween but sadly it never really becomes as frightening as the original one. The 1978 version didn't had one drip of blood and still wowadays people are afraid to see it. The score, the way Michael moves, it's that what made the original a horror and a classic, remember the ghost point of view...
Another thing I found over the top is the house of Laurie Strode. All the traps made and whatever she's does to kill Michael is exaggerated which doesn't add towarrds the horror.
Still, way better than most sequels made and worth seeing but to say it's better than the Rob zombie remakes, naaa I dare not.

Slender Man (2018)
So it happened, kids coming home and telling about a movie about some creep. And asking, who has een that particular flick, almost no-one did but it was a hype amongst the youngsters.
Now that it is finally there I dare myself to wactch another hyped flick, espescially within the group of early teens. I get it, it is all about teens. BFF's to be honest who, sigh, are out to get in contact with the slender man.
Seen so many movies about urban legends, let me tell you that Candyman (1992) is the one and only that delivered the creepyjeepies.
Well thought about how t attract the youngsters to watch this. Find some teens to become BFF's, put some social media in it (their live actually) and some flashing effects. It's there that this goes wrong. It never becomes creepy or frightening, it's about jumpscene's. It's about flashy effects. But no blood involved or whatsoever. I get it that teens do love this kind of horrors. But I dare them, go watch the real stuff like Candyman or even Urban Legend (1998)

Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
the whole Marvel world coming together
It's getting difficult to know who is who if you aren't into the Marvel world. Years ago, every superhero had it's own flick so it was for outstanders easy to know what it was all about but once the Avengers franchise started it became another thing.
Not only that, you will need to see all movies to unerstand what is going on. There are no flashbacks to keep you on track. Is that bad, no because by doing so the story starts immediately. If you are not in the Marvel world forget it, you wont understand a thing what is going on.
Clocking in over 2 hours it of course have some moments that you think, really, but overall this is a flick full of action with topnotch effects. And every superhero does what he normally does, meaning, spiderman is funny, the guardians listening to those old cassettes.
This is really a Marvel world as it should be, but if you are not into that world you still van enjoy it but too understand it all it will be hard.

Boarding School (2018)
only at the end it becomes a horror
This is a difficult one to say who would love this movie. For me it isn't a horror but still there are elements espescially towards the end to classify it under horror. But before all that happens it's a lot of talking going on.
Performances by the youngsters is all above mediocre which adds towrads the atmosphere of this flick. Still, in the beginning it's mysterious and it is explained throughout the flick but I can understand that aslong the boy is at home and dresses up as a girl some wil turn it off becuase it's the only thing we have. The young girl is another piece of cake, already aknowledge of sexuality she dares the boy to strip or teasing him. But she also has a mistery which leads to the boarding school.
Not really my cup of tea

Await Further Instructions (2018)
nothing explained, the last part of this flick is the best
This is a difficult one to review. It's low budget for sure. But the effects at the end were for this kind of flicks really above mediocre but before you reach the part where things really go wrong you have to go through a flick with a lot of talking going on.
A lot of racism too, but explained and not mentioned to be offending. I watched this as a throwback to the eighties. There you had a lot of flicks were at the end the real horror comes in. The same here, you can see that the house is going insane, nothing is explained and religion is the only way, it's christmas, that can explain the things going on.
Above mediocre, but some geeks will turn it off but try to watch until the end. No gore here, most is done off-camera (low budget remember) all money was spend for the last minutes clearly.

Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)
do not take it serious
Guess it's a new style of doing superhero flicks. Don't take it all too serious and be open-minded for jokes added into situations. This flick does great on that part when everything is little in teh normal world. I mean, we do have more situations were outfits have errors and the antman is too big or too small. It do gives some funny moments.
But not only that, effects are really stunning and the movie doesn't have any weak moments. People brag about it's the same as the firts one, of course it is, it's about Antman.
I enjoyed it and I am more into those superhero flicks with a joke here and there.

low budget with okay effects
Low budget zombie flick clocking in under 90 minutes and that's okay because in the beginning when we are at the fair it takes a bit too long and all cliches do come along. The bands performing all to long, People arriving at the fair, too long, but luckily for the flick it turns into a zombie flick just before you think, no this is bad.
Funny to see that the director tried to add the lesbian bad ass girls into it with a little nudity. The effects used are from okay to nicely done with editing to really bad (explosions) at the end when everything is destroyed.
Overall above mediocre for such a low budget flicks.

had fun with it and movie was over before I knew it
Didn't know the backstory of Venom but you don't need that because it's all explained very quickly and that is what makes this a enjoyable really good movie. I was in it from the beginning, no bad moments at all and suddenly it was all over. Great ending too. Makes you eager to watch Venom 2.
Tom Hardy does great as Venom. If you can't stand jokes in a superhero flick stay away from this. The spiderman flicks did had funny situations and the Deadpool franchise was over the top of jokes, this is in between. Because the 'parasite' do talk to Tom it makes it all great. Don't get me wrong, there's a lot of fighting going on and that is really nasty, no jokes there.
Better than expected, Venom is really worth seeing.

Tomb Raider (2018)
games are better
Lara Croft is in my live for many years starting off with the PS2 games and so it moved further into the well known flicks with Angelina Jolie to be picked up again in the gaming world delivering one of the better franchises in that particular industry. So of course a flick had to be made.
I was looking forward to see this, playing Lara Croft gave me a lot of puzzles and a lot of fighting going on. Not so in this flick. I must even say, I never really got into the movie. Clocking in at almost 2 hours it's only the last half hour that the real Lara Croft comes in with puzzles and her famous bow. But before that we have Lara as a courier delivering packages. Going to Hong Kong with predictable situations then crossing a deadly sea to arrive on the island where things should become hard for her.
I don't know, playing the game was more fun, and at the end of the movie she's going for guns, guess you know what kind of position she takes before the end credits. Sorry, this was a waist of time.

Hold the Dark (2018)
Available on Netflix, my father-in-law told me to go watch this one. He assured me it was great but a flick not for everybody. After seeing it I must agree.
For me this was a great movie made by Netflix. Just like Apostle (2018) this is on teh bloody side and sometimes it even comes in the gory area. It's nbot a horror, but it do has some creepy moments. I liked this a lot due the place it takes place and the excellent performance by Alexander Skarsgård. What he delivers here is really top notch. Perfect casting. I can't say what it's all about because I would have to spoil a lot but if you can dig mysterious flicks with an edgy side and gory effects then this is a must see. Again, many disliked it by that reason but the score, the acting and the atmosphere throughout this flick made it for me one of the best movies of 2018!

The Predator (2018)
a lot of CGI sadly
1987 spawned a new icon, the predator. The flick was a blast and created a lot of crap afterwards. The wildest dream was that the predator would fight against alien. AvP remember. Not what we hoped for as did the others that followed. Predators (2010) was okay but 8 years later we have this one.
Starts off pretty good but once the soldier swallows a thing from the predator that makes him go invisible made me already think, OMG. And when a child comes in to solve the puzzles this quickly turns into some kind of Disney predator.
What do makes it worth seeing are the battles against the creature. Messy and bloody and even gory, but again, sadly all CGI what turns it down again.
Putting in a crazy bunch of soldiers with jokes and all turns it completely away from the horror Sci-Fy genre. With the child they are picking in on the succes of Stranger Things of course but some scene's are really unbelievable and even a bit over the top to make this a mediocre flick. Predators and spacedogs working together? Predator making human moves with his finger? I don't know. If you never have seen an entry in this franchise you can pick it up but like with so many franchises see th efirts one to understand what's it all about and what makes it great.

Adviced by a friend to watch this Netflix horror and so I did. I ever expected a Netflix flick to be that cruel and gory.
The story starts rather simple, a brother going to rescue his kidnapped sister. Going to the island where she's kept quickly this flick turns into a weird flick about some unfriendly cult. It's rather okay but once things go wrong the cult turns into a brutality that has to offer the viewer a lot of messy and gory moments. It never was boring or whatsoever even clocking in over 2 hours.
For some viewers this flick can be offending once the weird people start to come in the story. And some will turn it off due the weirdness of the cult. But if you do like it bloody and messy then it's worth streaming on your Netflix account. Again, never thought that such kind of flicks would be on Netflix.

Tragedy Girls (2017)
for me not a comedy but an above mediocre gory flick
I must say that I liked this one. The story is rather simple and easy to follow, it's about two girls going online with their horror show but quickly this turns wrong and real killings are happening.
Is it scary, oh no not at all everybody can watch it but what do makes it great for the genre buffs is the fact that it's rather all gory when the slaughtering goes on. Yes, there some will turn their face away.
Also stated as a comedy I can understand that some things are a bit funny but for me it wasn't that funny at all. Therefor the jokes are made for teens, more about pranks.
At the end the flick loses it a bit but picks up toward the end. Not bad at all.
