The Fits (2015)

Welcome to the immediate post-Oscars cinematic landscape, otherwise known as the time where big releases are limited and one way or another, pictures made back in 2015 find their way on to the big screen for short, odd runs in British theatres. This year sees the turn of The Fits, a feature film debut for…

Mustang (2015)

In my annual rushed attempt to watch all of the Academy Award nominated motion pictures, I have to admit that the category of Foreign Language Feature always seems to pass me by.

One such film that has found itself stuck…

As a child who grew up in the 1990s, R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps universe was something of great importance and pleasure to me. From reading the books by torch light under my bed covers to obsessively watching the TV show, the children’s author’s intriguing tales with sinister edges accounted for a great deal of my childhood,…
