Nerdlocker Movie Review: Nightmare Alley

“Innocence once lost, can never be regained. Darkness, once gazed upon, can never be lost.” – John Milton I’m going to say something here I might get a lot of flak for but it’s something I’ve felt for a long time. Guillermo del Toro is what Tim Burton wishes he was. Macabre storytelling, off-kilter characters […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: ANTLERS

“What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.” – Pearl S. Buck If you looked up Scott Cooper on IMDb you would see a filmography of dramatic films. No horror to speak of. But if you’ve seen his films you’ll know that […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

One of the most defining parts of my childhood are the stories meant only for the dark. These books were edgy and forbidden, like I was getting away with something dangerous. Before I sneaked around and watched horror movies without my parents’ permission, I had these books. And now, with the help of the maestro […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Pacific Rim: Uprising

Hey Hasbro, take notes, this is how a giant robot movie should go… mostly. While in no risk of winning any awards outside of a Razzie (it’s not that bad though) Pacific Rim: Uprising is a solid, if forgettable, sequel to a monster movie that did it right only to be followed up with a […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Shape of Water

So often it seems fantasy films are made for families or just children so when a film like this steps into the spotlight it is equally mesmerizing as it is jarring. The Shape of Water is a masterful execution of story propelling characters and characters moving forward the story simultaneously. Each is as important as […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: 78/52

As a longtime fan of Alfred Hitchcock’s films, one of my most anticipated screenings at Fantastic Fest 2017 was Alexandre O. Philippe’s new documentary, 78/52. The 91 minute doc is an all-encompassing look at the revolutionary shower scene in the Master of Suspense’s 1960 film, Psycho. The title refers to the number of camera setups […]Read More

Reviews: Steve Jobs, Crimson Peak, Mississippi Grind

Hello, movie freaks! If variety is the spice of life, you’re in for a tasty weekend. Steve Jobs, Crimson Peak, Bridge of Spies, Mississippi Grind, and Goosebumps are all playing in theaters NOW. Respectively, that’s an Aaron Sorkin scripted, Danny Boyle helmed, scorcher starring Michael Fassbender, Jeff Daniels, and Kate Winslet; a darkly beautiful Gothic romance […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Crimson Peak

“Of all ghosts, the ghosts of our old loves are the worst.” – SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE From the master of the weird, the maestro of bizarre, Guillermo del Toro brings the world his latest trip to the land of extraordinarily abnormal, Crimson Peak. This is not your typical horror film. Guillermo del Toro crafted […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Pacific Rim

Every time I saw the trailer for this I always had the same thought, “This is going to suck.” I had no hope for it so when I got the chance for a free screening I took it so if it did suck I didn’t pay for anything. One of my favorite things about cinema […]Read More
