Cheesy dialogue and a messy narrative make this a confusing outing. It's a wonky blend of the original Alien and Prometheus. Apples and Oranges.
The film has stunning visuals and expert creature creation but fails when it comes to executing feeling, character, and any kind of a plot. It spent too much time trying to be The Thing, and forgot to be itself.
The horror phenomenon that combines traditional scare elements seamlessly with modern social relevance. Director Jordan Peele has made a lasting impression on us here. He knows what he's doing.
Life is a well crafted thriller / action movie, but lacks when it comes to the horror and suspense that it was obviously trying to achieve. Nevertheless, some beautiful concept design and interesting characters.
Probably one of the most fun and tongue-in-cheek festivals in Prague. From Tuesday 28/02 - Sunday 05/03, the Shockproof Film Festival (Festival otrlého diváka) is dedicated to filth, schlock, comedy, horror, B-grade, X-rated - the most bizarre titles from ancient cult classics to present day. In its 13th year, the festival has a whole new host of titles to offer the eager cinema goer, as well as some old faithfuls. It's an insanely interactive festival. Almost like a 21st century rebirth of the classic 'Cinema of Attractions'.
Seriously, Netflix is winning at life right now. I can't believe how many original titles they're pumping out this year. We basically have something to look forward to every month. The Bad Batch is the latest trailer to drop, and it's awesome.
A genuine fright fest that like all good modern horrors, relies more on atmosphere than cheap jump scares. With the turbulent backdrop of the Iran-Iraq war and an extremely unnerving folk tale mixed in, Under the Shadow is more than worth your time.
