A Quiet Place

Sheer terror, A Quiet Place, left me breathless and full of tension till the last minute- and I loved it!

Insidious: The Last Key

It was my birthday in 2011 when I had all my friends gather in my home theater to watch Insidious. No doubt, that was one scary movie and everyone had a rollicking good time. Flash forward two sequels later, and a third sequel screened in the cinema in 2018, I feel like the Insidious series…

The Fireman by Joe Hill

In all honesty, I picked up this book because of the author, Joe Hill, is Stephen King’s son, and Stephen King has been all time favorite author (he’s written some seriously scary novels!). It goes without the saying that I also absolutely loved the cover, with the slightly dotted texture that makes holding the book…

Split

Welcome back M. Night Shyamalan! How awesome it is to see you back in your trademark form by bringing to us Split!   I remember how excited I was when I saw the trailer for Split, that stars James McAvoy as a man with a split personality. Tonight, the cinema hall was buzzing with excitement…

Ouija: Origin of Evil

2016 has been a great year for horror films. Movie execs and studios are rushing out to make more and more horror films, but not all of them are worthy. In my list for the most awesome horror films are the following: The Witch, The Conjuring 2, Hush (a Netflix movie), The Shallows, Don’t Breathe,…

Don’t Breathe

Just like the title of the movie, there were several moments in the movie where I caught myself holding my own breath, literally. These were also the moments when I had completely forgotten I was holding nachos in my hands which I was suppposed to eat. That to me is a sign of success of this…

Lights Out (2016)

In 2013, David Sandberg made a 3-minute short movie called Lights Out. It featured his wife Lotta Losten, who when going to bed sees an eerie figure in the hallways as she turns off the light. Not sure, she flicks the lights back on to see nothing there. After a series of constant on and…

Crimson Peak

If you are a fan of Spanish director Guillermo Del Toro, you would have been waiting with abated breath for his new movie Crimson Peak. Anyone familiar with Del Toro will recognize him for some of the most creepiest movies ever: Mimic, The Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labyrinth. Along with the creepiness factor, Del Toro…

The Lazarus Effect (2015)

What happens when you die? Where do you go? Are you stuck in a nightmare? This is the concept The Lazarus effects delves into, not so effectively. A team of four scientists are working in a lab, under a grant, to work on a serum to assist coma patients, but end up using to bring back…

Jinn

The much hyped, much awaited movie is finally here. For years Hollywood has been churning out movies based on the devils, demons, ghosts and other supernatural forces, but no one has really touched upon what the Muslim world’s perception of Jinn. So the movie begins by telling us that in the beginning, God created man…
