The Color Out of Space (2019) – Richard Stanley

Last week I watched a 2010 German adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s famouns short story, this week, I take a look at the 2019 version starring Nicolas Cage.

The Hole in the Ground (2019) – Lee Cronin

The Irish horror film, The Hole in the Ground, was circling on my radar for awhile, so I was curious to see what I thought of it when I finally had a chance to see it. I can see why some people like it, and others didn’t care for it. The film works best when…

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) – David Leitch

It’s incredibly wild to me that a movie that played like the Point Break version of illegal street car racing spawned a successful, and highly entertaining film franchise. And on top of that, it delivered its first spinoff film in 2019 that launched some of the characters into full blown comic book mode. Fan favourites…
