SciFridays: “The Babadook” (2014)

Baddie – The thing in your closet tho. Lesson – Let it gooooo let it goooooo can’t hold it back any moreeee. The Babadook is lauded as one of the best (maybe the best) horror movie in the last few years. It’s received tons of hype and positive reception in the last few months as it plods…

SciFridays: Year-End Roundup

Baddie – Low-personal motivation. Lesson – I suck at making lists. I thought I might end this year in movies with some general thoughts/mini reviews/reflections, since this was my first full year as a columnist. We started this year with Piranha: 3D and ended with the odd Finnish Rare Exports. We watched a lot of Australian…

SciFridays: “Needle” (2010)

Baddie: All men, regardless. Apparently. Lesson: Sometimes a sleepy movie never really wakes up. Ahh, the marathon of outback horror continues. (For those newcomers to the column, all of Octoberween, SciFridays will be reviewing Australian horror films to honor the delightful movies from that delightful continent). The film opens with some very annoying papyrus subtitles…
