TRIGGERED Review

Stop me if you have heard this one before: Nine friends from high school meet up in the middle of a dense forest for a reunion camping trip. Significantly grown apart, their drunken revelry is stained by their antagonism for one another,

PROXIMA Review

In our fundamentally connected digital epoch, it is a challenge for the ache of missing someone to still resonate the way it used to, when that person is eternally at your fingertips. For the imminently spacebound astronaut Sarah (Eva Green), the pining

09 Mortal - Eric - Nat Wolff - Controlling water in interrogation room 5.5

MORTAL Review

Mortal exercises commendable ambition in its plot but is ultimately let down by a flat, dour execution; there’s something caught between its potential and its delivery, as if there’s some  communication that’s been lost in the stages between the script and the

KOKO-DI KOKO-DA Review

With its threadbare plot, gobsmackingly frustrating characters, and dull time-loop mechanic, Koko-Di Koko-Da is a test of one’s patience more than it is a meditation on grief.

THE DONUT KING Review

The Donut King is a fascinating story of the promises (and blunt realities) of the American dream for one Cambodian refugee.

ATTACK OF THE DEMONS Review

The unique and masterfully executed animation is worth the price of admission alone, but the thoughtful homage to classic monster movies and the frequent comedic injections make this a fun, albeit rough around the edges, spook show.

THE WOLF OF SNOW HOLLOW Review

Back in 2018 (which feels like a lifetime ago), I became completely enamored with Jim Cummings’ feature debut, Thunder Road, a dry, dark comedy about a police officer slowly succumbing to his emotions after the death of his mother. Impeccably written and

SHIVERS Blu-ray Review

Director David Cronenberg is the master of the body-horror sub genre, and his 1975 film Shivers (also known as They Came From Within in the States) is one of the first to inspire that moniker.

LITTLE MONSTERS Blu-ray Review

Even though I was a rabid fan of horror as a youngster, I wasn’t allowed to watch the really heavy stuff as a kid, so I had to find as many kid-friendly scary movies as possible. Richard Greenberg’s Little Monsters from 1989

BOY BEHIND THE DOOR, THE (1) 6

Fantastic Fest 2020: THE BOY BEHIND THE DOOR Review

Reminiscent of 2016’s home-invasion thriller Don’t Breathe, David Charbonier and Justin Powell’s kidnap thriller The Boy Behind The Door is an undeniably suspenseful, albeit often misguided, story about two best friends fighting for survival after being abducted.
