FEAR, INC. Review

Reading the synopsis of Vincent Masciale’s feature debut, Fear, Inc., it sounded like a horror-themed version of David Fincher’s The Game, a film I’m a huge fan of, so my interest was instantly piqued.

In Justin Tipping’s feature debut Kicks, he effectively injects this culture into a wonderfully scripted coming-of-age story about a teen trying to get back his stolen Air Jordans.
