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.

Fantasia 2018: OUR HOUSE Review

The film is a remake, or “reimagining” as they’re calling it, of the film Ghost From the Machine AKA Phasma Ex Machina from Matt Osterman, and while I haven’t seen the original, I’m not sure what it was that begged this story to be remade only eight years later, as it’s a pretty standard supernatural horror film with few, if any, memorable moments.
