Paragraph Film Review: The Falling

In 1969, girls at an English girls’ school start fainting. All the time. With what is quite possibly the most annoying xylophone noise in the background the girls take it in turns to flop to the floor for no apparent reason, while Maisie Williams’ character fornicates with her brother. Possibly one of the strangest films I’ve seen in a long time, it’s about as boring … Continue reading Paragraph Film Review: The Falling

The Conjuring spin off Annabelle is quite possibly one of the best horror films I’ve seen in a while. Let me begin by saying I don’t scare easily when it comes to horror films, I’ve grown pretty much immune. Obviously the tension is heightened when you see a horror in the cinema, but usually I don’t feel ‘scared’. Annabelle had me shitting myself. It’s like director … Continue reading Annabelle


I am unashamed to admit to being a bit of a Melissa McCarthy fan. Ever since her appearance as hilarious misfit Megan in Bridesmaids, she has been one of my favourite comedy actresses. Despite this though, I’d been looking forward to Tammy since seeing the first trailer ages ago with a pinch of dread. McCarthy seems to be getting typecast as the butch, loud, funny … Continue reading Tammy
