It’s rare that a horror movie is beautiful. Let the Right One In (2008) is a beautiful horror movie. So is Justin P. Lange’s The Dark (2018). See this one as soon as you can.
In Duncan Skiles’ decent The Clovehitch Killer (2018), Charlie Plummer stars as Tyler, a teenage boy who begins to suspect that his father Don (Dylan McDermott) is a serial killer. That a psychopath known for his skill with tying knots might have named his oldest child Tyler is a joke that wasn’t lost on me.
In Julius Avery’s Overlord (2018), the Nazis in occupied France have discovered something or other in a church that, once refined by their super-science, turns corpses (and pieces of corpses) into Übermenschen. If the movie spells it out, I missed it, but I can take a stab at what they’re shooting up with.
Welcome to Mercy (2018) does its The Exorcist (1973) thing by way of The Last Temptation of Christ (1988). These are two great tastes that taste sort of great together, but not as great as they probably should.
Daughters of Darkness (1971) is a lesbian vampire movie, one of several that were kicking around the international market in the early 1970s.
Clear your schedule and go see Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria (2018). Get plenty of sleep the night before. It’s not the phone-it-in sort of movie.
