If something is around long enough it’s going to be parodied. There will be barbs, jabs, satire and plenty of loving imitation. Even the tropes and trends that surround a specific genre will get reworked, turned inside out, and devotedly re-re-re-imagined.

Mike’s Review: The Witch in the Window (2018)
Many have characterized this film as “Hallmark Horror.” Which is, of course, lazy short hand for the fact that the film has an emotional component and it manages to draw the audience in to a deep and meaningful concern for the main protagonists. Mind you this is not “This is Us” or some other network pablum, but a legitimate exploration of a father/son relationship in the throws of pre-teen puberty — set against HORROR, glorious horror.

Mike’s Review: Unsane (2018)
Pure brilliance. Elegant simplicity. Well if Regency pictures came to me and asked me for a pull-quote blurb, that’s what I’d say. Because it’s true.
