¡°Psycho Goreman¡± is kind of a kooky kid flick for adults who fondly remember ¡®The Neverending Story¡¯ and want to see dark fantasy like that with the gnarliness ratcheted up to 11.
¡°Songbird¡± is something of a cinematic cousin to that celebrity cover of ¡®Imagine,¡¯ i.e. perhaps good intentioned, but not exactly a powerhouse piece of well thought out entertainment.
The best thing I can say about ¡°Castle Freak¡± 2020 is that it feels like a ¡°lost¡± Full Moon feature from the 1990s, and I mostly mean that as a compliment.
When it finally does swing into macabre matters, the switch feels like a sudden shock even though the movie quietly conditions us for horror all along.
