Shaun Of The Dead

How to know of the range of your genre and script, in Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg’s Shaun Of The Dead. I have seen both of them talk about the writing process of their trilogy, especially about Shaun Of The Dead in detail. Their structure is more pronounced and is easy to adapt and relate.…

Ghost Stories

How to be responsible of the privileged license handed over to you, in Ghost Stories. Why is Anurag so Anurag? So brilliant. Few obvious metaphors popped in, in front of me. They were easy to grab so I did. But as in whole, it still remains a mystery to me. But I like his slow…

Color Out Of Space

How to use visual effects to tell a story, rather than the other way around, in Color Out Of Space. What I love the most about the director Richard Stanley’s Color Out Of Space is the way it expresses the wonder of the horror genre. Something, that I feel, could only be achieved if he…

The Invisible Man

How to stare into the abyss and start imagining your desires or fears, in The Invisible Man. Dark Universal’s The Invisible Man, written and directed by Leigh Whannell starring Elisabeth Moss is not something I was excited for. There. I have said it. Now that we have got that clear, let me emphasize on how…

Stree

If not for the improvised bickering, (I know I have said this before too) I wouldn’t care for any of it. Any. The writers Raj and D.K. and not the director Amar Kaushik’s Stree falls under the category of passable films. And yet it cannot be considered it. There is much more in there. Don’t…

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.…
