Wicca Book

Wicca Book has a book in it. And words in it. But not dialogues. None. And still it expresses explicitly what it tries to achieve. Simply good. With unexpected shocks and chilling sound effects that unconventionally zaps you with scars, it is thoroughly entertaining. Within the first act, the film marks its success when you…

Castle Rock

Castle Rock is basically a mixture of all the mythological saga that we have witnessed. It’s just that this religion has Stephen King as the God. Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason, the creators of this show are crazy fans of the Stephen King novel. For it is only their love for the stories, the characters,…

Good Works

The antithesis is the way in and the way out. What you get in the middle- and you get a lot!- is all extra cheese. Enjoy the meal. The director D. J. Remark is definitely aware of the script. Or Jason Orr, the screenwriter was aware of it, from day one. I am going to…

Day Of The Dead

George had pushed himself in the previous chapter. This seems like overstretching things. Now, does that pay off? Come on, that’s subjective. But, no. I, or anyone for that matter, would be and should be austere towards the writer and director George Romero’s beloved zombie-defining trend-setting horror franchise. It comes with a lot of expectations.…

Dawn Of The Dead

As far as the scares are concerned, I am not scared. Lucky for George, he has plenty of other colors to paint this wall with something else. If Night Of The Living Dead is confined, specific, Dawn Of The Dead is all over the place. Showcasing all the repercussions and boasting all the showcased scenarios.…

Among many filmmakers achieving their own various milestones in their first project, this one could be the ideal example, the milestone of that sub genre list- if there is any!…

Lights Out

Sandberg’s film has empty threat, stake, emotion, impact on us, its exhausted audience, that cannot wait for the light to turn on and the screen to turn off. The co-writer and director David F. Sandberg has nothing to offer. And he is inviting us. This daring is neither admirable nor childish enough by us to…

Orphan

Orphan takes big and big leaps as it progresses. I should say “age” and not “progress” for it also makes less and less sense as it grows. And we meet again. The director Jaume Collet-Serra and I were just getting along and I came upon this project of his. Not to say, not to forget…

Doctor Sleep

It is the old style filmmaking residing between the temperament that warms the tea and whistles the kettle. I’d like to have a cup of that. Mike Flanagan who directed and adapted this controversial novelization for the screen is an apt choice to voice the second swing by Stephen King on Dan’s character and the…
