10. Fantasy Island (2020) Review- Not quite the same story as the classic television series. Things aren’t always what they may seem on fantasy island as These fantasies all come with a price. I love the premise of the story and location of the film but, I was a little displeased with the turn and ending. Still was an enjoyable watch until some unexpected nonsense.
Synopsis- When the owner and operator of a luxurious island invites a collection of guests to live out their most elaborate fantasies in relative seclusion, chaos quickly descends.
9. The Invisible man (2020) Review- I have seen every spinoff of this character and I have to say the version starring Kevin Bacon was by far my personal favorite. This film is the most recent release from Blumhouse this year. A few may disagree, but I was a tad disappointed with the lack of character development and sporadic back story on the invisible man. The makers took a creative twist with the premise and I was entertained nonetheless. It wasn’t the worse but it wasn’t the best. You may disagree so put it on your watch-list and enjoy this screamer!
Synopsis- When Cecilia's abusive ex takes his own life and leaves her his fortune, she suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of coincidences turn lethal, Cecilia works to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.
8. The Turning (2020) Review- I began this film with great expectations for it. It started out very ominous but I have to say I was a little disappointed with the outcome of this film. It was a setup for a very cliche ending. It wasn’t the most horrible still worth a watch. It still has potential as a semi-decent haunt film.

7.Child’s Play (2019) Review - There were things I liked and disliked about this film. Overall, I have to say I’m not disappointed with what I viewed. Without spoilers I would have to say I wasn’t exactly let down with Chucky’s rendition. I appreciate the child-like qualities the doll had. It’s a screamer worth watching so go on and have a go!
Synopsis- A mother gives her 13-year-old son a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature.
6.Scary Stories to tell in the dark (2019) Review- I didn’t know what to expect with this one as I read and heard so many bad reviews about it prior to watching it myself. Contrary to what I’ve heard, I really enjoyed it and thought the monsters were Terroriffic! Take a chance with this terrifying teenage anthology, I feel it’s worth the watch!
Synopsis- On Halloween 1968, Stella and her two friends meet a mysterious drifter, Ramón, and uncover a sinister notebook of stories.
5. Crawl (2019) Review- I was very impressed with this chomper. The story Takes place in a perfect hurricane setup with you guessed it, killer alligators. There are some great kill scenes in this film and the CGI was surprisingly good. It also delivers on the suspense end. Pleasure your eyes with a dose of animalistic destruction!
Synopsis- A young woman, while attempting to save her father during a category 5 hurricane, finds herself trapped in a flooding house and must fight for her life against alligators.
4. Haunt (2019) Review- Now this film gives me hope for the future of haunt related movies but I have to say the kills and plot twist of this horror gem right here will satisfy you blood loving fiends. Watch it if you dare!

3. Gretel and Hansel (2020) Review- An eerie feel with a sadistic twist on an old tale. I was a big fan of the overall aesthetics and plot twist on this film. An added backstory, made it all the more pleasurable. Enjoy this morbid classic if you dare!
Synopsis- A long time ago in a distant fairy tale countryside, a young girl leads her little brother into a dark wood in desperate search of food and work, only to stumble upon a nexus of terrifying evil.
2. Dr. Sleep (2019) Review- I absolutely loved this sequel! If you’re a fan of the shining, then this should feel like a completely satisfying union with the first if not better then Kubricks rendition. Give it a watch and see for yourself!
Synopsis- Years following the events of "The Shining," a now-adult Dan Torrance must protect a young girl with similar powers from a cult known as The True Knot, who prey on children with powers to remain immortal.
1. The House That Jack Built (2018) Review- Great experimental horror film by Lars Von Trier. Take a journey into the mind of a serial killer. Matt Dillion plays a perfect Psychopath. Watch it for yourself and enjoy the madness!
