Review: Happy Death Day 2U (2019) – Killed By The Kitchen Sink

Ever since the emergence of the Paranormal Activity series and the studio behind it, Blumhouse Productions we have been given a plethora of low-budget horror films to fill our time, some more successful than the others.

Review: How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) – We Stand Alone

When it was announced soon after the first How To Train Your Dragon film that there would be a trilogy I could not be happier. Coming off of an innovative starting picture that put so much time and effort into its central duo and its conceit that you couldn't help but fall in love with …
