AFTER MIDNIGHT Review

After Midnight is an effective genre blend that will no doubt divide audiences with its focus on the relationship drama over the horror elements, but despite the overabundant hipster vibes and slow pacing, it’s an intriguing film with a few surprises and a handful of solid performances that ultimately delivers a satisfying conclusion.

COME TO DADDY Review

Beginning as a somber reunion of father and son and ending in a gore-filled bloodbath, Timpson’s first foray in the director’s chair is anything but a forgettable experience.

THE OSCAR NOMINATED SHORT FILMS 2020: ANIMATION Review

Multi-Oscar-winning director Brad Bird once said that, “Animation is about creating the illusion of life, and you can't create it if you don't have one.” It’s a simple observation that is often taken for granted, one that nonetheless highlights the detectable traces of life found in every pen stroke, clay imprint and line of code collected together to produce this year’s nominees for the Animated Short Films Oscar.

EDGE OF THE AXE Arrow Blu-ray Review

If you’re in the market for a more obscure ’80s slasher, featuring a creepy killer, ridiculous dialogue and predictably silly ending, Edge of the Axe is worth a look and is certainly a step above the rest of the derivative genre titles we saw in the waning moments of the decade.

COLOR OUT OF SPACE Review

Color Out of Space is a fun bit of cosmic horror and a welcome return to feature films for Richard Stanley, something I hope is a sign of things to come.

GIVE ME LIBERTY Review

Give Me Liberty is a quirky, fun film that has a relatability because of the issues it tackles, but it feels like pieces are missing.

VHYES Review

VHYes is a film I love in concept, and while it was executed perfectly on a technical level, the actual content left a bit to be desired.

UNDERWATER Review

Bolstered by a kick-ass performance from Kristen Stewart, Underwater is a satisfying B movie that delivers nearly non-stop action with some chilling creature moments to boot.
