2.5/4 65% Mama (2013) " Muschietti makes the scares in Mama too obvious to be effective, but the quiet in-between times suggest genuine horror ..." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Jan 23, 2013
2/4 24% Paranormal Activity 4 (2012) " When the scares do come, they come fast and hard but, unfortunately, far too late." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Oct 25, 2012
3/4 63% Sinister (2012) " Sinister isn't perfect, but it easily tops most of its scare-starved competition." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Oct 18, 2012
2.5/4 55% V/H/S (2012) " It lands most firmly - and most often - on the side of freaky and tense as all hell." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Oct 2, 2012
2.5/4 49% Hit & Run (2012) " An entertaining, if scattered romp." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Aug 23, 2012
2.5/4 83% Comic-Con: Episode IV - A Fan's Hope (2012) " Comic-Con doesn't even try to scratch the surface of the world's largest geek meet-up. Which is not to say it isn't enjoyable." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Apr 10, 2012
3/4 41% Silent House (2012) " Though the final revelation of who's behind the malevolent forces at work feels hackneyed, and the denouement is excessively talky, these flaws don't spoil what is a deftly executed film." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Mar 8, 2012
3/4 86% Battle Royale 3D (2000) " Battle Royale is The Hunger Games not diluted for young audiences." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Feb 22, 2012
2/4 6% The Devil Inside (2012) " [A] limp mockumentary." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Jan 10, 2012
3.5/4 73% Inside Hana's Suitcase (2012) " The real buoyancy comes from watching the students learn about both the dangers of hatred and the capacity of the human spirit to endure." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Nov 8, 2011
41% The Catechism Cataclysm (2011) Boston Phoenix
Posted Nov 5, 2011
2.5/4 35% The Thing (2011) " Laughable dialogue and the CGI-generated monster get in the way of the scares." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Oct 18, 2011
30% The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) (2011) Boston Phoenix
Posted Oct 15, 2011
1.5/4 58% Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark (2011) " What this film really needs is a good exterminator, or a better director." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Aug 24, 2011
2/4 61% Final Destination 5 (2011) " Are we dead yet?" — Boston Phoenix
Posted Aug 17, 2011
3/4 72% Fright Night (2011) " It has fun with itself, which is also a good deal for the audience." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Aug 17, 2011
2/4 56% Atrocious (2011) " The scares - though effective, even chilling - come in scarce fits and starts..." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Aug 9, 2011
3/4 82% Life, Above All (2011) " A grave, quietly moving coming-of-age tale of a young girl raised in a village where many (her infant sister, in this case) are robbed of the opportunity to come of age at all..." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Aug 3, 2011
2.5/4 89% Rammbock: Berlin Undead (2011) " Dreary apartment complex? Check. Post-apocalyptic undertones? Check. Wild-eyed, slavering undead with a taste for man meat? Check, check. But somehow it doesn't all come together." — Boston Phoenix
Posted May 5, 2011
3/4 58% Scream 4 (2011) " This movie is going to have more than its fair share of detractors. I'm not one of them." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Apr 20, 2011
46% Soul Surfer (2011) " This movie relies on cheese when it could have striven for heart." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Apr 7, 2011
3/4 43% Maniac! (1980) " Today's horror movies barely register once the credits stop rolling, but not so Maniac." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Feb 16, 2011
1.5/4 37% Burlesque (2010) " It's no great surprise that Christina Aguilera can sing. But I'm sorry to report that her breakout movie is similarly revelation free." — Boston Phoenix
Posted Dec 1, 2010
0.5/4 9% My Soul to Take (2010) " Hands down the worst horror movie of the year, and certainly the worst of Wes Craven's career." — Boston Phoenix
