BLOW THE MAN DOWN Review

Blow the Man Down is a well executed noir with plenty of comedic moments to bolster an already strong set of complex characters and a killer feature debut for its two directors.

SXSW 2020: THE CARNIVORES Review

Being the spouse of a sleeptalker (and to the person editing this review right now, love you!), I often find it fascinating what goes on in individuals’ minds during sleep. I’ve had full-blown conversations with her, only to discover she’s been unconscious

BIG TIME ADOLESCENCE Review

Propelled by the performance of Pete Davidson in his first starring role, the film feels a bit paint by numbers at times, but the solid script and even pace keep it from toppling over under the weight of its own formula.

SWALLOW Review

Swallow is a meaningful study of mental illness through a captivating, off-the-wall character.

ONE MISSED CALL TRILOGY Arrow Blu-ray Review

Of all the Japanese horror titles released after the explosive success of The Ring, none was  as derivative as the One Missed Call series, but at least in the case of Takashi Miike’s first entry, there’s a lot more substance here than

extra-ordinary 7

EXTRA ORDINARY Review

The premise alone for Extra Ordinary, a film about a timid driving instructor whose ability to communicate with the dead puts her in a position to save the life of a teenager who is about to be sacrificed by a one-hit-wonder musician in order to resurrect his career, should be enough to warrant the price of admission.

RUN THIS TOWN Review

Run This Town couldn’t hit the political-thriller notes because of the way it chose to tell its story, needing more pieces of Rob Ford and his staffers to paint a more complete picture.

THE INVISIBLE MAN Review

This is a unique take on the Invisible Man narrative and has some really creative turns, and as a massive fan of this series, I was beyond excited to see Whannell deliver something terrifying, original, and easily one of the best horror experiences of the year.

BLOOD ON HER NAME Review

Matthew Pope’s feature debut, Blood On Her Name, is a well crafted, Southern-fried, neo-noir with a heavy reliance on tension, and while this method doesn’t always quite work, audiences are still in store for a satisfying crime thriller.

DEADLY MANOR Arrow Blu-ray Review

It’s tough to recommend Deadly Manor to anyone but die-hard slasher fans, as there’s just not much here to grab onto aside from some super cheesy dialogue and a semi-interesting killer.

THE NIGHT CLERK Review

Written and directed by Michael Cristofer, The Night Clerk further complicates the issue of the male gaze in cinema by filtering it through a sympathetic character.

VFW Review

It was only a few months ago that we were talking about Joe Begos’ last horror feature, Bliss, a no-holds-barred splatterfest, and now here we are again with VFW, another throwback genre picture guaranteed to satiate those gorehounds out there hungering for

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.
