THE FLOOD Review

This film is trying to tackle two parts of the immigration system — the officers and the asylum seekers — but is really only doing justice for one of them.

THE WRETCHED Review

The Wretched is a surprising delight, which doesn’t skimp on some great creature effects and fun, sometimes shocking moments that make this a memorable endeavor that I can easily recommend giving a look.

Tribeca 2020: 12 HOUR SHIFT Review

12 Hour Shift is a trashy comedic thriller that boasts an entertainingly despicable cast of characters and a dark, twisted tale of addiction and organ trafficking during the Y2K crisis.

THE PERISHED Review

Whether or not writer-director Paddy Murphy intended it, his feature length debut never really shakes the uncomfortable framing of pro-life propaganda disguised as middle-of-the-road horror allegory. The unfathomable attempt by The Perished to weigh in on the unending abortion debate and to

SEA FEVER Review

It’s funny how — in this new reality — it seems like everything reminds me of COVID-19, from TV shows that remind us of how things used to be to dystopian-future films that make us exclaim, “Hey, that’s sort of like what we’re dealing with!” Neasa Hardiman’s sci-fi horror film Sea Fever may be dealing with a horrific parasite instead of a virus, but I couldn’t help but draw parallels to the current worldwide pandemic we’re experiencing.
