Noroi the Curse, or: Ghost fetuses assemble

I never thought I'd get to the point of being sick of creepy children and complex supernatural drama from Asia but here we are. November accidentally became an extension of spooky season and that's fine but I'm absolutely gagging to hang out with a gang of harried executive women in quaint country towns - all…

A Tale of Two Sisters, or: Baggage

When troubled musical prodigy Charlotte seeks out Elizabeth, the new star pupil of her former school, the encounter sends both musicians down a sinister path with shocking consequences. Film: The Perfection (2018) *Spoilers* TW: Sexual assault Charlotte Willmore (Allison Williams)…
