SHADOW OF A GUN Review

Shadow of a Gun seems to have taken the concept of ‘Chekhov’s Gun’ to a new level by employing it long before any acts have transpired.

SUSPIRIA Review

Though unapologetic in how differently it approaches tone, style and narrative from the glossy Argento classic, as a companion piece, Suspiria fleshes out the ideas present in the original and elevates them to a grandiose distinction

TORSO Arrow Blu-ray Review

Arrow has once again proven its appreciation and attention to detail for genre film, and Torso is absolutely worth adding to your collection, especially if you’re a fan of classic giallo cinema.

12 MONKEYS Arrow Blu-ray Review

All of these features are available on the original 2009 Blu-ray release, so the main reason to pick this up would be for the new restoration, and the better cover art.

BODIED Review

Though a tad too long, coming in at two hours, the standout performances from Worthy (along with all the rappers involved), the fantastic script, and Joseph Kahn’s music video-esque visuals make Bodied not one to miss.

THE PRINCESS BRIDE Criterion Blu-ray Review

Despite having not a lot of new content, the fact that Criterion includes basically everything from all the other releases, including the now-rare Laserdisc, the new restoration and the wonderful packaging, makes this an easy recommend to anyone who grew up watching this magical, life-affirming film that will consistently make everyone’s day a little better.

DEADBEAT AT DAWN Arrow Blu-ray Review

Thirty years ago, director Jim VanDebber released his long-in-development feature debut, Deadbeat At Dawn, almost instantly solidifying it as a cult classic with its over-the-top characters and ridiculous moments of violence.

THE DARK Review

The Dark is a disturbing, yet oddly touching, feature debut from Justin P. Lange, and while it comes dangerously close to becoming dull at a few spots, it never completely loses its connection with the audience and deftly delivers a tragic, hopeful story about the resilience of human beings and the healing power of the positive connections we have to one another.

HALLOWEEN Review

Green's Halloween is a return to form for the franchise that feels worthy to close the book on Haddenfield that Carpenter and Hill opened 40 years ago.

The Guilty - Still 3 6.5

THE GUILTY Review

Told over the course of one harrowing evening in Denmark, Gustav Möller’s The Guilty presents a tense thriller while keeping the viewers, and our protagonist, Asger (Jakob Cedergren), fixed in one location.

An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn - Still 1 7.5

AN EVENING WITH BEVERLY LUFF LINN Review

It’s a polarizing film that some like myself will love and find to be brilliantly funny and others will just find it too weird and annoying to get on board with. Whichever side you land on, An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn is a movie you won’t forget experiencing anytime soon.

JOHNNY GRUESOME Review

Perhaps, on paper, this half-baked, undead slasher about a metalhead rising from his unjust grave and taking it out on the living works, but I have my doubts.

CHARM CITY Review

Soon after the death of Freddie Gray, at the hands of the Baltimore Police Department, is where documentary filmmaker Marilyn Ness places herself for her latest film, Charm City.
