EMPIRE: NOT KILLING IT?
Yeah that’s it Empire, I’ve had enough. You gave the bitterly disappointing Baby Driver five stars (what the?) and a few editions ago you featured the nonsensical Don’t Breathe as the best horror of last year, but the icing on the cake is to give the first decent horror in years — Killing Ground — two stars. You say it’s “grim sadism” and it’s hard to believe this can be “anything approaching entertainment”. You clearly don’t understand horror and yet still feel the need to review it (whilst obviously missing the point spectacularly). Not only that but you heap praise on the dreadfully overblown and quite stupid Baby Driver. Goodbye subscription... SUSANNA FINN, WERRIBEE, VIC
Sorry to see you go, Susanna. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion — it’s what makes the world a wonderful place, innit? — and we still stand by ours. And while an argument can be made that Killing Ground is a thriller and not a horror, that’s just splitting hairs. And now you’re splitting. So much splitting right now. Perhaps we could undergo some couples therapy together?
