CRIMSON PEAK remains Guillermo Del Toro's crowning achievements of subversion.
Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of John Carpenter's misty classic under government-mandated quarantine seems eerily appropriate.
This film is the “left’s” misguided critique of the left, one that seems content to stand between both sides and scream like a kid whose parents are fighting “why won’t you be nice to each other?”
The original The Invisible Man (1933) contains a lot of comedy absent from the other famous monsters’ films. However, even within these “gags” and any of the silliest interpretations, they’ve provided a much-needed groundwork for Whannell’s version to be realized. Despite any joke, The Invisible Man is the most horrifying Universal Monster because he represents real terror… the immunity of privilege.
THE HUNT seems more likely to provide ideological fortification for its audiences’ ideological echo chambers.
