It Chapter Two (2019)

It feels like a very short two years ago that the 2017 remake of Stephen Kings It hit the big screen. I wonder how many of us at the time expected it to be as huge as it was? After release, the film very quickly became the highest grossing horror movie of all time, seemingly…

Midsommar (2019)

It was almost exactly a year ago that I, along with millions of other film lovers, came out of the cinema absolutely shooketh by Ari Aster’s Hereditary. Not only a top class horror film, but also a top class directorial feature debut. As soon as the dust settled post Hereditary, everyone turned their attentions to…

Greta (2018)

Any long time reader of Oh! That Film Blog will know that I have an aversion to anything in cinema that is overly twee or quaint, and because of this, my instinctive love and fandom for Isabelle Huppert is nothing short of rampant. The iconic French actress has made a career out of revelling in…

With the knowledge that a reimagining was coming to screens this year, I decided not…

Halloween (2018)

If you thought that the long and storied history of the Halloween franchise was confusing enough already, how about a direct sequel to the 1978 original that retcons every single one of the subsequent instalments and, to top it all off, has exactly the same name? I wouldn’t usually go in for this kind of…
