Alice Winocour’s Proxima is a stunning, breathtaking film. Eva Green is superb as Sarah, a female astronaut selected to spend a year on the International Space Station (ISS).

The film also… Continue reading Proxima | Movie Review
I absolutely adore Elyse Willems (she has no idea who I am, so this review isn't biased) and when I discovered that she wrote a children's Halloween book, I had to check it out. I was a scaredy-cat as a kid, so I was hoping that this novel would thrust me into the shoes of… Continue reading A Night in Halloween House by Elyse Willems | Book Review

I’m a fan of Ben Wheatley and the cast is fantastic. Lily James and Kristin Scott Thomas steal the movie. This vision of the classic novel adheres fairly… Continue reading Rebecca (2020) | Movie Review
I adored Scare Me. This was original, creative, and extremely well-acted. The film sees Fred (Josh Ruben) and Fanny (Aya Cash) meet in the Catskills during the middle of winter. That same night, a blackout causes the power to go out in their cabins, and they hang out together in Fred’s and tell each other… Continue reading Scare Me | Movie Review
