Review – Werewolves Within

Movies based on video games don’t have a good reputation. But maybe, Hollywood has been focusing on the wrong kind of games. Or the wrong type of filmmakers. Werewolves Within has some serious bite and weirdly works as it’s based on Ubisoft’s virtual reality game. Is this the one to break the video-game-turns-movie-curse? Quoting Mr. …

Review – ‘Saint Maud’

There’s a rosary pinned beside Maud’s bed of one, an open bag and neatly arranged possessions give the façade of an organised life and maybe mind. When Maud (Morfydd Clark) prays to God, it is slow and concise and it sounds more like a chat. Like He’s on the other end of the line, like …
