I remember going into the kitchen to find my dad snapping his fingers, my mom setting the table, the aroma of brunch filling up the room....

When it was once again my turn to unwrap a gift, I reached for the pile of wrapped parcels received from my parents, a guaranteed place to find something give...

Dark Skies (2013) is a horror/sci-fi hybrid that reminds me of Signs with the similar alien themed horror. Directed by Scott Stewart, I’ve rated Dark Skies as three out of five skulls. Overall, I really enjoyed this movie but there were too many holes in the plot. I felt like I was unable to have m...

Circle (2015), directed by James Ponsoldt, is the second movie marked off my list and is rated a 4 out of 5 skulls. Technically it is put under the ‘thriller’ category and it doesn’t disappoint.
