Happy Death Day 2U [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng)

Due to the unexpected success of the original 2017’s ‘Happy Death Day’ outing the cheekily fun and frolicking fright farce was tasty frosting on the cutthroat cake. Crafty, creepy and oddly clever director Christopher Landon’s menacing romp was refreshingly twisted in its off-kilter skin. In fast forwarding to 2019’s sequel ‘Happy Death Day 2U’, Landon is back at […]

Will Smith’s genie in the live action version of the upcoming Aladdin fantasy movie seems to be picking up some negative vibes across the interweb – but then, the animated version is such a precious treasure to many viewers, that whatever happened in the live action film was going to break a few fans’ hearts.

The Prodigy [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

So it appears that ‘The Prodigy’ is the latest evil kid creepfest to re-emerge and offer its familiar spin on the bizarre brat from hell formula. One thing for sure…this kiddie creeper will certainly make you consider any hankering for Hungarian jingles or cravings for pakrika on your favourite dish. Or perhaps not.  Whatever the case, […]

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

Well, ‘The Lego Movie’ film franchise can at least say that it had its playful run throughout the years since the original blueprint became a sensation back in 2014. This is not bad for a popular toy-turned-desired movie series that incorporated its winning charm, imagination, and wit to adoring audiences. ‘The Lego Movie’ pretty much raised the bar as […]

Child’s Play (2019): horror film trailer.

Child’s Play is the US horror movie directed by Lars Klevberg (and a remake of the 1988 film of the same name). This one ships with a 21st century update, as a thinly veiled Amazon-like corporation starts manufacturing robot Alexa-ish dolls for the kids – said robots called ‘Buddi’. Sadly, one robot kiddie companion is […]

Shaft (2019) (Reboot with Samuel L. Jackson).

Here’s the trailer for the Shaft movie reboot with Samuel L. Jackson inhabiting the titular role he was surely born to play. This one reminds me of Life on Mars and its sequel, Ashes to Ashes, in that the very un-PC and unreconstructed Shaft (think Gene Hunt) is paired with his FBI agent son (think […]

Painkillers [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng)

Director Roxy Shih’s (‘The Tribe’) psychological thriller ‘Painkillers’ is a horror showcase of a different kind. The decorated demons and lingering despair do not emerge from behind a shady-minded wall or appear in the freakish form of an apparition looking for spooky-minded payback. Shih’s fright fable is effectively embedded in the tortured psyche. The sickness and […]
