Cam 2 7

CAM Review

It’s a compelling narrative driven by a solid performance from Madeline Brewer that becomes only more intriguing as Alice dives deeper into this strange technical nightmare she begins living.

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.

Knuckleball 7 6

KNUCKLEBALL Review

Playing out like a darker, more twisted version of Home Alone, Michael Peterson’s Knuckleball pits a clever little kid against a sadistic killer in a bloody game of cat and mouse.

Cold Skin 7 5.5

COLD SKIN Review

Playing out more like a gender-swapped version of The Shape of Water than the Lovecraftian horror it wants to be, Xavier Gens’ latest is a visually pleasing, but ultimately empty, creature feature that, while entertaining at times, fails to evoke the emotional resonance it sets out to achieve.

Puppet Master_ The Littlest Reich 3 6

PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH Review

It’s sleazy and sloppy, but leaning in to the comedic aspects of the series and doubling down on the variety of murder puppets definitely makes for a more entertaining viewing experience.

Hurt 1 4.5

Fantasia 2018: HURT Review

Sonny Mallhi’s Blumhouse-produced horror film Hurt is based on a true story, and he really wants you to remember that. Over and over you’ll be bombarded with people mentioning it and even see it written throughout the film, just in case you

Rondo 2 3

Fantasia 2018: RONDO Review

Promising sex, murder and revenge, Drew Barnhardt’s Rondo, I can say, does indeed deliver on those three things. How well those three things are executed, however, is an entirely different matter.

Our House 1 5.5

Fantasia 2018: OUR HOUSE Review

The film is a remake, or “reimagining” as they’re calling it, of the film Ghost From the Machine AKA Phasma Ex Machina from Matt Osterman, and while I haven’t seen the original, I’m not sure what it was that begged this story to be remade only eight years later, as it’s a pretty standard supernatural horror film with few, if any, memorable moments.

Pledge 5 6.5

FANTASIA 2018: PLEDGE Review

Pledge is like Hostel meets The Skulls, with it leaning more heavily on the wanton torture angle than saying anything of substance about the barbaric practice of fraternity hazing in America.

Dans la Brume 2

Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot, The 3 7

Fantasia 2018: THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT Review

With its brilliant, on-the-nose title, you may think that you know what to expect from Robert D. Krzykowski’s The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot, and while it does contain those two things, at its core, this is a bittersweet love story about an aging war hero reminiscing about the life he once had.
