Anamorphic Love

I grew up holding a place in my heart for many films. Films like Jaws, ET, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Fog, Die Hard, Predator…it’s a long list.

The idea of such a sacred franchise being remade without Harrison Ford would, in any other universe, have caused pandemonium. […]

Halloween VFX: The Mist

I’ve chosen Frank Darabont’s 2007 film as it appears to be strangely underrated yet it’s one of the best horror movies to come from the states in many years.Based on a Stephen King novella of the same name and not to be aligned with the other horror-movie-weather-phenomenon, The Fog, The Mist isn’t a grandstanding showcase of set pieces.
