    A badass flick right here. It definitely leaves the generic scary movies in the dust. Fantastic writing, fantastic plot, fantastic acting. The best scary movie I've seen coming from this generation.

  1. Splinter is a bad idea, borrowing body parts, as it were, from old horror flicks to genuinely unsatisfying results.

    A spare, effective and genuinely frightening retro-nightmare.
  3. The result, however clich├ęd, is spectacularly unnerving: hair-trigger horror.
