The Outwaters (2022)

Four travelers encounter menacing phenomena while camping in a remote stretch of the Mojave Desert.

My thoughts: Twisted, terrifying, and tedious. A experimental experience, roughly 20 minutes too long.


Livid (2011)

The suggestion of a big treasure hidden somewhere inside Mrs Jessel’s once renowned classical dance academy will become an irresistible lure to a fiendish trap for Lucie and her friends.

Thoughts: Not as strong as Bustillo and Maury’s other outings like Inside and Deep House, but still a creative and creepy surrealistic take on the haunted home invasion sub-genre.


Braid (2018)

Two wanted women decide to rob their wealthy psychotic friend who lives in the fantasy world they created as children; to take the money they have to take part in a deadly perverse game of make believe.

My thoughts: Visually resplendent and thoroughly bonkers, it’s a movie that challenges both your understanding and patience. Your mileage may vary, but I was onboard for the wild ride.


All Eyes (2022)

A disgraced podcast host interviews an eccentric farmer who claims to have a monster living in the woods near his house.

My thoughts: Gets off to a heartfelt and humorous start, then inexplicably switches gears, abandoning the character-centered warmth in favor of silly Home Alone escapades.


Better Watch Out (2016)

On a quiet suburban street, a babysitter must defend a twelve-year-old boy from intruders, only to discover it’s far from a normal home invasion.

My thoughts: The scares and laughs are few and far between in this tonally discordant “horror comedy”.


Speaking of horror…

  1. I may give these movies a miss. Thanks for taking the bullet. 😉

    I like Orphan, so far. My hubby isn’t into horror, so I’m having to sneak watch. He’s on a staycation this week, so the TV viewing choices are limited. I’m halfway through it and I’m convinced the Orphan is from a failed Russian Orphan X/Black Widow program. The kid has to be a partially trained assassin, yes?

  2. Oh, I’m watching for “Pearl” to go on sale. That was one you reviewed and recommend. I’m leaning towards “Cocaine Bear” when it gets released.
