Midsommar


Sleepy Hollow


Midsommar is another one of those movies in which the protagonist travels to a foreign country and gets victimized, but this movie is not as simple as that.
On paper, it is a horror movie but it explores the theme of grief, death, relationships and family.
The movie is like a dark fairy tale, with its bright colour palette and dreamy feel but sprinkled with rituals and strange practices.
The movie doesn't shy away from taking its time to set up which is very typical of Ari Aster, the director of the movie. Aster already revolutionized the horror genre with the success of his debut movie "Hereditary (2018)", and he came up yet again with this masterpiece... Which could easily become one of the classic horror movies of this decade.

Sleepy Hollow


Sleepy Hollow


There is nothing more synonymous with Halloween than the movies of Tim Burton.With classics like 'The night before christmas','Edward Scissorhands' and 'Beetlejuice' he has mastered a specific type of horror Goofy and Gothic. Through a perfect blend of whimsy and freaky,Burton's movies are never meant to be scary. It's here that in its unique way 'Sleepy Hollow' differs from the rest of his filmography. Because it is in a sense,a more traditional horror movie. Even Burton may have surprised himself with this one.The tone of the film is Gothic. There's no doubt that we are in Burton territory here. It's one of the few films where the atmosphere takes the lead. It is a richer,darker,densely spookier retelling of the Washington Irving classic.
