Annihilation

Annihilation

2018

Directed by Alex Garland

Annihilation is a science fiction psychological horror film based on the novel of the same name by Jeff VanderMeer. The film is entertaining, but it fails to fulfill its early promise to be much more than that. There are a handful of striking images, but they fail to form a coherent whole.

Would not see.

The Neon Demon

The Neon Demon

Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn

2016

The Neon Demon is a psychological horror film about models in Los Angeles. Neither the themes nor the aesthetic in The Neon Demon are subtle, but the atmosphere is still effective. The ending is perhaps logically reached, but it still feels like a disappointment.
