Doctor Sleep (2019)


Two years after successfully adapting Stephen King's Gerald' Game, Mike Flanagan has taken upon the task both to adapt another King novel, Doctor Sleep, and to follow up Stanley Kubrick's so-called horror masterpiece The Shining. While I can't say whether Flanagan's Doctor Sleep is a good adaptation or not as I'm yet to read the novel, I can say that he did an excellent job at making a sequel that, in my opinion, overshadows the original as it's a very (in)tense and rather creepy horror film from start to finish.

Monthly Recap: October 2019


Mexicans are celebrating Día de Muertos, the beautiful, vibrant holiday to remember and celebrate their loved ones. I, on the other side of the Atlantic ocean, am struggling to write this monthly recap because, you guessed it, October was just another month. 

The Witch (2015)


There is one film that popped out very often on my feeds this October, Robert Eggers's The Witch. All the praises aroused my interest in a movie I had never heard of before, so I decided to spend my Sunday morning watching it; and I'm glad I did because the film turned out to be not a clichéd, gory horror but a creepy and atmospheric one.

Thursday Movie Picks: Halloween Edition: Rituals

A weekly series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves

As much as I love Halloween-themed Thursday Movie Picks, I was not able to join the past two weeks because I simply couldn’t come up with anything. Or if I could I was too lazy to actually put in the effort to write. I’m not sure. Anyways, I’m back on track with this week’s theme because I simply could not miss horror movies featuring rituals. Without further ado, I leave you with my picks.
