Daniel Isn’t Real (2019, USA) Review

Daniel Isn't Real (2019, USA) Review

Daniel Isn’t Real is a vivid psychological horror from director Adam Egypt Mortimer, which centres around troubled college freshman Luke Nightingale. We learn that when Luke was around five years old he ran into the street to get away from an argument which was raging between his mum Claire, who was struggling with mental issues, and his unsympathetic dad. A few blocks away he stumbled across the aftermath of a bloody shooting at a neighbourhood café. As little Luke stood staring at a blood-spattered corpse, he was suddenly joined by another little boy called Daniel.

“I had an imaginary friend when I was a kid. His name was Daniel.”

Four Horrific Decades of Monster Movies (1980s-2010s)

Four Horrific Decades of Monster Movies (1980s-2010s)

Whilst the 2010s are probably my least favourite decade for creature features, it got me thinking about my favourite monster movies. I’ve focused on the big two horror creatures – vampires and zombies – and then various other monsters…

Art of the Dead (2019, USA) Review

Art of the Dead (2019)

It’s rare that I’m left speechless or lost for words after a horror film but perhaps the only way to describe Art of the Dead is to say that it defies any definition! Brimming with influences that range from Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) to American Horror Story and Dario Argento, this offering from director Rolfe Kanevsky (who has a prolific output) is a visceral feast for the eyes. It’s fair to say that this is a horror based in spectacle, shock and sensory overload rather than it being a deep and searching exploration of fear. If this film were a painting itself, it could be described as schlocky, daring and off the hook.

“Lust. Gluttony. Greed. Sloth. Wrath. Envy. Pride. What’s your sin?”
