It Comes At Night (2017)

I actually missed It Comes At Night on it’s initial cinema release due to a limited cinema run around me and timing. But thankfully, thanks to a handy little Film Society in Sheffield (Shout out Film Unit – Check them out) I managed to catch this. Although, it was with a sense of apprehension because...

Happy Death Day (2017)

Phantoms (1998)

I must clear up the reasoning behind this movie, I am only watching this film for one reason and one reason only.
