The true terror of a good antagonist goes beyond the countless and gruesome ways that they murder their victims. True evil seeps into the society where it exists and affects negative change. This is one of the many reasons why The Dark Knight succeeds as a film, especially using the Joker to push this very idea. In Halloween Kills, director David Gordon Green applies this idea to this famous franchise. Does he succeed?

“The saga of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode continues in the next thrilling chapter of the Halloween series.”
by Kevin Muller
Stanley Kubrick’s film 2001: A Space Odyssey, was groundbreaking because it took viewers on a miraculous journey that displayed revolutionary film making. It also inspired countless directors and writers to create films of similar nature, with its beautiful visuals and psychedelic nature, that were either were respectful imitators or just flat out disasters. James Gray, who brought us the severely underrated 2016 The Lost City of Z, has now directed a space film that has hints of Kubrick. Does his film soar like a rocket or get lost in space?

“Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”

“Well, that movie was fucked up!”
That was the first thing that my friend said as the ending credits rolled on the screen. There is no denying that the new Nicolas Cage movie Mandy is a trip. It feels like a movie tailored to that over exuberant energy that we all have come to associate with the Academy Award winning actor. The question is, is it a trip worth taking?
Frodo’s Gone Homicidal in ‘MANIAC’
by Nile Fortner
A socially awkward serial killer (Elijah Wood) removes the scalps’ of women and attaches them to his mannequins, to bring a new life to them.
A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Last House on the Left, The Amityville Horror, Cabin Fever, and The Wicker Man are all classic horror films. On the other hand, I believe these classic horror films have not been remade into classic remakes. Many remakes fail to capture the energy, wisdom, and likeness of the original. It is very difficult to capture lightning in a bottle twice, especially with horror movies. Many directors, producers, and writers of horror all tend to follow the same format, and end up being predictable, bland, and lifeless nowadays. However, director Franck Khalfoun (‘P2’ and ‘High Tension’) brings some new life into a cult classic, a new direction, and in my opinion a better film. I believe that Maniac (2012) is a rare exception of the remake actually being better than the original.
