January 2020 Theatrical Releases
I love the era of J-horror that inspired the original American version of The Grudge, but it feels like that time has passed. I’ll still see this, but I’m keeping my expectations as low as possible.
I don’t know of an underwater monster movie I didn’t like at least a little. Something about the sub-genre is just so interesting to me. Plus, the cast is solid, so I feel like this is going to be the first movie of 2020 that I really enjoy. At least, I hope it is.
I love a good haunted house movie. I do think the creepy-little-kid motif is overdone, but since this is based on a book I can let it slide. I’ve become a fan of Mackenzie Davis over the last couple of years, so I’m looking forward to seeing her in this.

This looks real weird. Hopefully it’ll be playing somewhere close so I can see it in theaters, because I’m pretty sure I’m going to like it.

This looks like it’s trying real hard to emulate/copy the style of The Witch. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, I just hope it turns out to have some worthwhile substance behind the already familiar visual style.
