2.5/4 64% Mama (2013) Muschietti makes the scares in Mama too obvious to be effective, but the quiet in-between times suggest genuine horror ...‐ Boston Phoenix

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

3/4 42% 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

3/4 87% Battle Royale (2000) Battle Royale is The Hunger Games not diluted for young audiences.‐ Boston Phoenix

2/4 6% The Devil Inside (2012) [A] limp mockumentary.‐ Boston Phoenix

3.5/4 75% 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

2.5/4 35% The Thing (2011) Laughable dialogue and the CGI-generated monster get in the way of the scares.‐ Boston Phoenix

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

2/4 62% Final Destination 5 (2011) Are we dead yet?‐ Boston Phoenix

3/4 72% Fright Night (2011) It has fun with itself, which is also a good deal for the audience.‐ Boston Phoenix

2/4 56% Atrocious (2011) The scares - though effective, even chilling - come in scarce fits and starts...‐ Boston Phoenix

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

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

3/4 59% Scream 4 (2011) This movie is going to have more than its fair share of detractors. I'm not one of them.‐ Boston Phoenix

46% Soul Surfer (2011) This movie relies on cheese when it could have striven for heart.‐ Boston Phoenix

3/4 43% Maniac (1980) Today's horror movies barely register once the credits stop rolling, but not so Maniac.‐ Boston Phoenix

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

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
