35% Strangerland (2015) "Strangerland is presented through a prism of womanly wantoness juxtaposed with a mother's pain and fear. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Jul 23, 2015
26% Terminator Genisys (2015) "The blend of top-notch CGI, realism, stunts, and breakneck pace keep all the exploding balls in the air, and the 3D is blissfully easy on the eyes. " ‐ Dread Central

86% Eden (2015) "...both lovely, and looooooong. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Jun 16, 2015
71% Jurassic World (2015) "The first of the Summer blockbusters, Jurassic World leads the way to what promises to be an exciting season of cinema. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com

3.5/5 71% Jurassic World (2015) "It's fun to watch for the monster-movie homages sprinkled throughout. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jun 10, 2015
3.5/5 60% Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) "It covers all the bases and is scary and suspenseful in the process. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jun 4, 2015
74% Big Game (2015) "Big Game is a feel-good, old fashioned Spielberg style kids of all ages movie; full of adventure, action, and moments of aww. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Jun 4, 2015
60% Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) "Since Insidious: Chapter 3 is a prequel, it stands alone quite nicely. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Jun 3, 2015
18% The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence) (2015) "Perhaps even more egregious than its inherently repulsive premise is the fact that The Human Centipede 3: The Final Sequence is cinematically constipated... nothing happens for a long, long time; and when it does, it's just crap. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted May 22, 2015
33% Poltergeist (2015) "I look at the 2015 Poltergeist on its own merits. Yes, it's not an original idea. But it's been remade by some very respectable folks who are horror fans themselves. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted May 21, 2015
3.5/5 33% Poltergeist (2015) "It's an exciting movie, a fun romp that's well acted and nicely paced. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted May 19, 2015
98% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "Despite the frenetic pace of Mad Max: Fury Road and its massive set-pieces, gobsmack-nonstop action and violence, insane costuming, and its bombastic soundtrack, there is a story and there is character development. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted May 14, 2015
77% Cop Car (2015) "The screenplay falls short, making what might have been an instant classic into something more like instant gratification before the next Netflix click claims our wandering attention. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted May 5, 2015
40% Three Holes, Two Brads, and a Smoking Gun "If you're in the mood for a talky little neo-noir potboiler, 3 Holes and Smoking Gun is just the ticket. " ‐ StaciWilson.com
Posted Apr 28, 2015
63% The Water Diviner (2015) "The Water Diviner comes up dry. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Apr 19, 2015
61% Unfriended (2015) "While it's not a flawless fright flick, Unfriended gives us a good gimmick as byte-sized horror that's easy to 'like' before moving onto the next distraction. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Apr 14, 2015
67% Dial A Prayer (2015) "I recommend Dial A Prayer for its actors - Snow is well-cast, Macy is of course golden in every single thing he does, and the supporting cast is likeable - and a story that's got a good message yet is not overly preachy in delivering it. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Apr 9, 2015
44% True Story (2015) "Understated in spite of its sensational subject matter, it's a well-made if somewhat humdrum movie. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Apr 3, 2015
81% Furious 7 (2015) "I daresay Furious 7 is best of the lot since the original. Fasten your seatbelts, suspend your disbelief, and enjoy the ride! " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Mar 31, 2015
92% Ex Machina (2015) "Ex Machina is what I call an existential horror movie. It feels as visceral as anything created by the Crichtons, Spielbergs, and Scotts of an era gone by, but it's got a contemporary, current, and forward-thinking propulsion to it. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted Mar 26, 2015
17% The Gunman (2015) "While one can certainly see Penn's attraction to a globe-trotting, gun-toting, hard-loving role such as this, one also can't help but wonder how it all falls so flat. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Mar 17, 2015
32% Cut Bank (2015) "While Cut Bank has its clever moments, funny running gags, and a few shocking death scenes, it's just too expository and derivative; what's more, it takes itself far too seriously. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Mar 15, 2015
13% The Lazarus Effect (2015) "I don't expect reinvention of the wheel, as long as a movie rolls along well enough. And this one does. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Feb 25, 2015
29% Everly (2015) "Hip to all the ins and outs of grue and gore [Everly] spares not a single blood-drop. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Feb 4, 2015
10% The Boy Next Door (2015) "On a scale of one to Gigli, Jennifer Lopez's latest cinematic sortie is off the charts. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Jan 22, 2015
34% Blackhat (2015) "The movie's not all bad. It's just a bit bland. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Jan 18, 2015
29% The Captive (2014) "It's reminiscent of other recent child-abduction and exploitation films such as Prisoners and The Frozen Ground, but there's something just a little twistedly different that sets it apart. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Dec 11, 2014
98% The Babadook (2014) "One of the best horror movies to come along in years. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Dec 9, 2014
93% The Duke Of Burgundy (2015) "Like a lush Ingmar Bergman chamber piece with a touch Jess Franco style sensuality, one could say The Duke of Burgundy is a kinky cross between the seminal S&M sendup Secretary and the most dazzling homage to giallo in recent years, Amer. " ‐ StaciWilson.com
Posted Nov 21, 2014
50% True Blood: Season 7 (TV, 2014) "True Blood is wildly entertaining, what with its peek into the seamy underbelly of vampire politics, the integration of several supernatural species, and small town life/afterlife. " ‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
Posted Nov 18, 2014
25% Wolves (2014) "In true 80s throwback fashion, coupled with a hip, sleek and modern look, Wolves is the perfect hybrid between The Howling and Hemlock Grove. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted Oct 28, 2014
52% Stonehearst Asylum (2014) "Think: Downton Abbey meets The Knick. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted Oct 23, 2014
3.5/5 23% Dracula Untold (2014) "But if you're looking for just a quick, fun, and forgettable vampire bite, then Dracula Untold doesn't disappoint. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted Oct 8, 2014
66% Jimi: All Is by My Side (2014) "As a mood piece, the film captures the essence of a time in music history quite beautifully. " ‐ StaciWilson.com
Posted Sep 26, 2014
97% Housebound (2014) "Comedic elements aside, Housebound succeeds as a horror film - it's got some great jump-scares, a compelling plot-twisty mystery, and oh yes: plenty of gore. " ‐ StaciWilson.com
Posted Sep 26, 2014
42% Horns (2014) "While Horns is a mixed bag - tonally, it can't quite decide if it's fable or grit - the flick's fine. " ‐ StaciWilson.com
Posted Sep 26, 2014
61% The Equalizer (2014) "The movie is overly long, and certainly overly-violent in contrast to its sometimes preachy do-right earnestness, but it's worth a look. " ‐ StaciWilson.com

26% As Above, So Below (2014) "A lot of fun. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted Aug 31, 2014
21% Into The Storm (2014) "There are clich├ęs, shameless emotion manipulation and cardboard cutout characters; but the moments of suspense and the renderings of relentless killer storms are at times truly breathtaking. " ‐ Dread Central

Posted Jul 15, 2014

Posted Jun 8, 2014
No Score Yet Joy Ride 3 (Unrated) (2014) "Joy Ride 3 is a serviceable enough gore fest and the actors are all up to par. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jun 8, 2014

Posted Apr 30, 2014
2.5/5 36% The Quiet Ones (2014) "Though The Quiet Ones does not quite work as a throwback to Hammer's heyday, it does, however, serve its purpose as a decent time-waster. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted Apr 24, 2014
3/5 62% 13 Sins (2014) "The ending peters out a bit, but if you enjoy a little sadistic horror with a touch of humor, then 13 Sins is a fun enough time waster. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted Mar 27, 2014
79% The Raid 2 (2014) "... it'll please a lot of fans. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted Mar 25, 2014
2.5/5 49% RoboCop (2014) "RoboCop is worth a look on the big screen for the visual spectacle, but for the visceral satire you're better off revisiting the original. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted Feb 11, 2014
45% Raze (2014) "Violent beyond belief, bloody and yet a bloody-good time, Raze is a fun one for fans of hard action and well-choreographed bare-knuckle fight scenes. " ‐ SheKnows Network
