The film follows Lars Lindstrom (Gosling), who lives in his brother's (Paul Schneider) garage and pretty much cuts himself off from society. He goes to work, comes… Continue reading Lars and the Real Girl (2007) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 52

An American Werewolf in London (1981) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 51

John Landis' classic horror/comedy still holds up today, especially the incredible makeup and practical effects. Is this movie overhyped? In my opinion, yes. It's still a fun romp, though. Starring David Naughton, Jenny Agutter, and Griffin Dunne, the story follows two American students David and Jack (Naughton and Dunne, repsectively), who are backpacking across England.… Continue reading An American Werewolf in London (1981) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 51

Goodnight Mommy (2014) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 49

Goodnight Mommy is a genuinely unnerving, suspenseful, original horror/thriller that I highly recommend to anyone who is a fan of either genre. The story follows two twin boys Lukas and Elias (Lukas and Elias Schwarz), whose mother (Susanne Wuest) has just returned home from having facial reconstruction surgery. The boys start to wonder if this… Continue reading Goodnight Mommy (2014) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 49

Child’s Play 2 (1990) | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 48

The sequel to the classic Child's Play is a fun, humorous, dark treat. It may not tread new ground, but it sure is one hell of a ride. Picking up after the ending of the first film, Andy (Alex Vincent) has been placed in foster care and his mother has been sent to a mental… Continue reading Child’s Play 2 (1990) | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 48

Indignation (2016) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 45

I had heard nothing but amazing things about this film, and went in with fairly high expectations. I left Indignation feeling a tad disappointed and wishing the film had been fleshed out more. Indignation is based off of Philip Roth's novel of the same name, and follows the life of a young man named Marcus… Continue reading Indignation (2016) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 45

Regression (2015) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 44

Regression was an under the radar horror film that was in limited release and got a critical drubbing. I went in with low expectations, and I found the film to personally be better than what the reviews indicated. Regression tells the story of a detective named Bruce Kenner (Ethan Hawke), who is assigned to the… Continue reading Regression (2015) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 44
