TOKEN HOMO film review: Nia DaCosta’s CANDYMAN is a good film, but there was potential for it to be an angrier, more brutal & significantly more damning one.
In brief: The werewolf FX have a well-cuddled Care Bear quality that makes you want to rub the creature’s belly for rainbow wishes.
In brief: Leaves you with that feeling of being fully satisfied by something you haven’t seen before & can’t wait to see again.
In brief: A casting clusterfuck of a bear hunt that comes completely undone with some appalling CGI in its closing stages.
In brief: The classic bear bait & switch, a monster slash survival movie suffering a hormone-induced identity crisis.
In brief: In the battle of (wo)man vs bear, chalk this win up to the beast.
In brief: A fascinating low budget exploitation shocker that retains enough raw power to justify its watershed reputation.
In brief: Julia Ducournau’s unsettling debut solo feature that gets under your skin & stays there like a terrible, tunneling disease.
In brief: A ridiculously ambitious debutante DIY creature feature to inspire all you wannabe drag superstars, pups, furries & fetishists.
In brief: A young man on his travels falls in love with a shape-shifting monster who’s struggling to keep her shit together.
