Cold Skin 7 5.5

COLD SKIN Review

Playing out more like a gender-swapped version of The Shape of Water than the Lovecraftian horror it wants to be, Xavier Gens’ latest is a visually pleasing, but ultimately empty, creature feature that, while entertaining at times, fails to evoke the emotional resonance it sets out to achieve.

INVENTING TOMORROW Review

With what could have been a rather boring subject, considering so much of it was scientific jargon, Nix was able to breathe life into the students’ projects and deliver a compelling, engrossing picture from their teenage perspectives.

PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH Review

THE RANGER Review

The Ranger has a ton of fun with ’80s slasher traditions but never turns them into a joke, marrying a punk-rock exuberance with some nasty bloodshed.
