The_Wretched_6 6.5

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.

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.

Harpoon 7 6.5

HARPOON Review

Harpoon is a surprisingly refreshing film; with its smart script and devilishly dark story, it’s far more substantive than what you might come to expect from a typical containment thriller.

Freaks 7

FREAKS Review

This genre-bender is the type of movie best seen cold, with no knowledge of any plot details beforehand, in order to truly benefit from its wild thematic shifts.

Satanic Panic 3 7.5

SATANIC PANIC Review

Completely over the top in the best ways imaginable, Chelsea Stardust’s Satanic Panic is a gore-soaked camp-fest that is chock full of fun and consistently entertains from beginning to end. 

Tone-Deaf 1 5

TONE-DEAF Review

Tone-Deaf is still a fun little thriller featuring two strong leads in Crew and Patrick, but the lack of commitment of its primary components prevents this from being anything but a mediocre affair.

Tigers Are Not Afraid 6 7.5

TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID Review

Tigers Are Not Afraid is an excellent piece of genre cinema that is, at times, as beautiful as it is horrific, presenting a new and wholly unique perspective of how pervasive the drug cartels are in Mexico and specifically how they can affect all those surrounding them.

Divine Fury0003 5

Fantasia 2019: THE DIVINE FURY Review

The Divine Fury is an entertaining, yet slight action-horror film that, while containing a few thunderous moments, doesn’t quite stick the landing or embrace its great concept.

Door Lock 1 7

Fantasia 2019: DOOR LOCK Review

Door Lock is a well shot and at times fiercely creepy thriller that almost acts as a companion piece to Sleep Tight, and while I wouldn’t say it reaches the same heights as the original, it deviates enough from the source material to feel like its own story.
