Sissy – A fun time with revenge

Sissy is a 2022 Shudder Original written and directed by Hannah Barlow and Kane Senes.

It’s the story of influencer Sis…sorry, Cecilia (played spectacularly by Aisha Dee) who promotes mental health and wellness running into her childhood best friend Emma (the wonderful Hannah Barlow) and being invited to her hen’s night. (For those of you who don’t know what a hen’s night is, it’s what they call a bachelorette party in Australia, the UK and parts of Canada). Continue reading Sissy – A fun time with revenge

Dracula 3D – This movie does not exist

Dracula 3d is a 2013 movie. Allegedly. I watched it back in 2013. Allegedly.

To this day I still could not tell you how I discovered Dracula 3D. I don’t believe anyone told me about it because in 2013, people genuinely cared for one another. I also don’t believe I found it through a website because I am still fully convinced that it’s a shared hallucination between Dusty Evely and I.

Still/Born – Flash Review

Still/Born is a 2017 movie directed by Brandon Christensen and starring Christie Burke and Jessie Moss.

What’s it about?:
A woman gives birth to twins but one of them is stillborn. She develops severe postpartum depression and begins to find sinister things happening when her husband goes on a business trip.

Is it good?:
It is very good. Christie Burke is absolutely wonderful in this and owns every single scene she’s in. When her character starts to fracture and begins seeing things, she makes you feel empathy for her.

From the silent opening scene right through to the end, everything is tastefully shot and gives off a great sense of dread. It never once relies on cheap jump scares to unnerve you.

Did you enjoy it:
Very much so. I know it’s a 2017 movie but it’s probably in my top three for movies that I watched this year.

Do you recommend it?:
I do. Go. Watch it now. It’s streaming on Shudder

Final thoughts:
A great movie that’s heavy on dread and emotion. It has a killer score and Christie Burke demands your attention every time she’s on the screen.

Re:Born (2016 – Directed by Yuji Shimomura Atarring: Tak Sakaguchi)

I was really hoping to go into an in-depth review of this movie, but the same thing just kept popping into my head: Do you want to see more kills than John Wick 2 in a shorter amount of time? If the answer is “Yes,” then you need to watch this. If the answer is “No,” then you might want to reflect on yourself a little bit.

This is much more action than horror, but it’s on Shudder so it should be readily available to anyone reading this review. It’s a good time. Check it.

4/5 pools of blood.
