In that sense, survivors don’t defeat death, they come to terms with it.” – Laurence Gonzales It is the unsuspecting victim against the intimidating psychopath. The maniac has experience and […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Shadow of Violence

“Growth is painful. Change is painful. But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.” – Mandy Hale It becomes quite clear early on in this tale of wanton violence that not all are created equal and not all fit into such a grotesque, unforgiving underworld. The Shadow of Violence makes the […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The New Mutants

“When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.” – Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man I never thought it would actually happen but The New Mutants is finally here! It’s like a dream, a really mediocre dream.

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Unhinged

“We all go a little mad sometimes.” -Norman Bates (Psycho) Sometimes I think it’s important to let off some steam. In fact I’d argue it’s an imperative part of normal life.

The murder hornets, […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Relic

“Where there is no imagination there is no horror.” -Arthur Conan Doyle Here we are again with one of those finicky horror/drama hybrids that test the patience of anyone simply looking for a run-of-the-mill scary movie.

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The King of Staten Island

“Never try to grow up too fast, but don’t linger in the child you were.” -Christofer Drew When does a person truly grow up? What does it even mean to “grow up?” In a physical sense yes I’m sure there is a scientific response to these questions. From a societal reasoning I would argue it’s […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Vast of Night

“Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.” – Arthur C. Clarke I remember growing up watching The Twilight Zone with my dad.

“Always the innocent are the first victims, so it has been for ages past, so it is now.” -J.K.

“Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.” -Mother Teresa A note of true terror rests within relatability. Relating to loneliness, feeling insignificant, especially in the eyes of those we trust most, in the hearts of those we thought cared for us. To lose that, or to learn you never really […]Read More
