On Adam Wingard’s Blair Witch (2016)

by Kayann Mitchell I am 41 so I saw The Blair Witch Project in theatres and it scared and traumatized me in equal measure. Back then when the internet was just a wee babe and not every single household had access, the ingenious marketing ensured that this micro budget scare

On Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas (1990)

by Jennifer Valencia What can I say about Goodfellas (1990) that hasn’t already been said? ¬†Why would I even tackle this film? I made myself a promise (I said I would watch all the AFI 100 Best Films and write about them), and I am going to see this through

On Bo Mikkelsen’s What We Become (2015)

by Kayann Mitchell With Bo Mikkelsen‘s feature film debut we take another journey into the Nordic Twilight,Scandinavia’s emerging genre movement. This time instead of werewolves here we parlay with the shambling undead. The film opens in the picturesque suburb of Sorgenfri where we meet Gustav (Benjamin Engell) and his family

On Jonas Alexander Arnby’s When Animals Dream (2014)

by Kayann Mitchell Part of an emerging Scandinavian genre scene known as Nordic Twilight (Let The Right One In, Troll Hunter, What We Become), When Animals Dream is Jonas Alexander Arnby‘s stunning and moody directorial debut. The film opens with Marie (Sonia Suhl) visiting the local doctor because of a

On Fede Alvarez’ Don’t Breathe (2016)

by Kayann Mitchell I’ll say it here and now. I ADORED Fede Alvarez‘ Evil Dead remake. It was a blood soaked thrill ride that injected legitimate horror into the legacy of Sam Raimi‘s classic. So I was taken aback when the release of Don’t Breathe snuck up on me. I

On Babak Anvari’s Under The Shadow (2016)

Toronto After Dark is quickly gaining massive brownie points with me what with their premier of Trash Fire on a double bill with Babak Anvari‘s Under The Shadow I had the pleasure of seeing what is now another superior piece of filmmaking to add to my 2016 top ten. Under

On Richard Bates Jr.’s Trash Fire (2016)

by Kayann Mitchell I don’t know if y’all had the opportunity to see the fantastic little film Excision when it debuted in 2012. Richard Bates Jr.‘s blood soaked horror gem. If not, go, now, and behold greatness, I’ll wait… Did you go? Good! Because that should have you ready to

On Danny Perez’ Antibirth (2016)

by Kayann Mitchell Premiering at Sundance Antibirth is the latest in body horror, a sub-genre that usually takes a strong stomach to behold, which is all I knew about this little indie going in. So needless to say I had a bucket on standby just in case. But would I

On Karyn Kusama’s The Invitation (2015)

by Kayann Mitchell I sat down to watch The Invitation with very little knowledge of its premise, which is how I like it, blissful ignorance. And I highly recommend to everyone queueing up this interesting and suspenseful title they do the same. In The Invitation Karyn Kusama‘s 4th feature film.

On the Blaine Brothers’ Nina Forever (2015)

by Kayann Mitchell I had the pleasure of seeing Nina Forever at the 2015 Toronto After Dark film fest. It was one of the more anticipated films in the line up with the theatre packed with people waiting to see the self described “Fucked Up Fairytale.” A simple story about
