Movie Review – Pet Sematary

Sometimes read is better Pet Sematary (2019) When it comes to film adaptations of the venerable Stephen King, we’ve had as many hits, as misses. Pet Sematary 2019 disguises itself well as the former, with polished production values and reasonable acting, but breaks apart easily under scrutiny. Co-directors Kevin Kolsh and Dennis Widmyer have gone […]Read More

Movie Review – Viral [2019]

Not anytime soon Viral Thailand’s Viral is a concerted effort by director Manussanan Pongsuwan to create a piece highlighting the mobile-obsessed generation, and merging it with an actual haunting that happened in one of her earlier films.
