It's a film that you absorb, until it slithers around and engulfs you.

April 27, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Here's a shivery treat for horror connoisseurs more interested in mood and atmosphere than blood and guts.

March 4, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Through both theme and texture, Graham approximates the slow phobia of Ari Aster's Hereditary-the pervasive feeling that the dominos are tumbling and there is nothing that can be done about it.

Graham uses darkness and a very sparse score/soundscape to create a truly disturbing work that relies not so much on gore as the uncanny in its most potent form: stillness, pools of darkness and just-visible figures.

Anyone can pull off a jump scare or three. Graham immediately manages the considerably more difficult task of conjuring a mood of general dread, suffusing ordinary settings with supernatural unease.

Beyond any other aspect, Sator is visually staggering in a way that sticks with you.
