Godzilla (2014)

"Takes a little while to warm up, but this is a cool and classy piece of epic monster movie-making."

Haunt (2014)

"A respectably old-school chiller that feels sort of refreshing, even if it doesn't leave much of an impression."

A Field in England (2014)

Separation (2013)

"No gimmicks, no gore, just a nice feature-length Twilight Zone episode with a few cool ideas and some strong payoffs."

Cabin Fever 3: Patient Zero (2014)

"Compared to Cabin Fever 2 or simply taken on its own merits, Cabin Fever 3: Patient Zero is a surprisingly amusing piece of sci-fi splatter cinema."

In Fear (2014)

"If you've ever been lost at night on a road you've never seen before, you'll probably get a kick out of In Fear."

Dark House (2014)

"Doesn't always work as a cohesive whole, but it does have more than a few good moments."

Children of Sorrow (2014)

"Earns points for mood, restraint, simplicity, and some well-earned shocks when all is said and done."

Oldboy (2013)

"For a "pointless" and "unnecessary" remake, there's actually some really solid stuff in this one."

Exists ()

"Takes a little while to get cooking, but once you-know-who pops up, there's some solid fun to be had."

Posted May 8, 2014

Scott Weinberg

Doc Of The Dead ()

"A fast-paced and very informative primer on all things cinematic and zombified."

Posted May 8, 2014

Scott Weinberg

14 ——

Among the Living ()

"Manages to work as its own distinct film, even if certain portions will remind you of everything from Steven Spielberg to Clive Barker."

What We Do In The Shadows ()

"More deadpan, clever, and silly than it is simple, "schticky," or mean-spirited. "

Wolf Creek 2 (2014)

"Starts out strong and unpredictable -- and then slowly (very slowly) runs out of steam."

Posted May 8, 2014

Scott Weinberg

Knights of Badassdom (2014)

"Frequently sloppy and pretty piecemeal, but also rather funny and oddly likable. Strange flick."

Posted May 8, 2014

Jinn (2014)

"Some of Bob Kurtzman's third act make-up effects are a small silver lining, but unfortunately Jinn is a pretty laughable affair."

Locker 13 (2014)

"As a die-hard fan of the horror anthology film, I take no pleasure in stating that Locker 13's few stray glimmers of quality are not worth the slog it takes to find them."

Posted May 8, 2014

Scott Weinberg

The Quiet Ones (2014)

"Well-shot, well-acted and, well, kinda boring."

Posted May 8, 2014

Scott Weinberg

22 ——

Fractured (2014)

Posted May 8, 2014

Scott Weinberg

All Cheerleaders Die (2014)

"A funny, smart, and subversive satire about the way women are often objectified in horror films. (Also gory / sexy.)"

Posted May 8, 2014

Honeymoon (2014)

"Honeymoon covers a lot of emotional and intellectual terrain for such an unassuming and modest indie horror film, and that's only part of what makes it so impressive."

Posted May 2, 2014

Scott Weinberg

25 ——

The Last Days (2014)

"The Last Days may not represent the flashiest apocalypse story you'll ever see, but there's always something to be said for clever storytelling, good acting, and novel apocalypse tales."

Coherence (2014)

"The result is a low-key mind-bender that feels half-scripted, half improvised, and -- for the most part -- rather surprisingly compelling."

Starry Eyes ()

"A rough, gritty indie combo of Faust and Black Swan -- set in the cutthroat world of young Hollywood"

Oculus (2014)

13 Sins (2014)

Scott Weinberg

The Den (2014)

"The Den has some pretty compelling things to say about the alleged safety of the internet. Also it's creepy."

Lord of Tears ()

"All I know is one or two moments really creeped me out, and I never get creeped out. If that's not a compliment, I don't know any."

Nurse 3-D (2014)

"Moves really quick, offers a generous amount of shocks, and displays a slyly dark sense of humor."

Lucky Bastard (2014)

"Lucky Bastard is a frank, fascinating, and decidedly "adult" piece of horror filmmaking."

Devil's Due (2014)

"Virtually a found footage remake of Rosemary's Baby, but it's a pretty fun version of that."

Open Grave (2014)

"Decent payoffs for those who are interested in playing along -- and willing to contend with a few slow spots in the mid-section."

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2014)

"The scary stuff works, the characters are actually pretty likable, and the franchise mythology is given its fair due ...without overdoing it."

Dead in Tombstone (2013)

"A fun cast and a decent presentation but man is this a story we've heard 1,000 times."

The Facility (2013)

Carrie (2013)
