Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
38% Silencio (2018) With the stone, the zone and its powers kicked into the background, Silencio becomes a muddle of melodrama and thriller pretensions.‐ Newsweek

62% Suspiria (2018) Not just an arthouse exploration of a horror aesthetic, but a down-and-dirty body horror as visceral as anything in Cronenberg's output.‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2018
78% Halloween (2018) 2018's Halloween isn't a deconstruction, but a slasher movie down to its knife-scraped bones.‐ Newsweek

52% An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn (2018) We are all more like characters in An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn than anyone is likely to admit.‐ Newsweek

80% Apostle (2018) Apostle gets too bound up in the island cult it's meant to be escaping.‐ Newsweek

33% The Predator (2018) Whatever its weaknesses, The Predator gets its titular aliens right, offering a sampler of violent, extraterrestrial skirmishing that works more often than it doesn't.‐ Newsweek

92% Mandy (2018) Every shot is composed with a directorial conviction heavy with hermetic knowledge and occult power.‐ Newsweek

78% Let the Corpses Tan (Laissez bronzer les cadavres!) (2018) A deluge of technique ... which washes over the viewer in successive waves, alternately breathtaking, tiresome, breathtaking, repetitive.‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
27% The Nun (2018) Rather than grandiose and ponderous, The Nun is workaday, lunch pail gothic, getting the job done with the energy of a factory floor.‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2018
64% Calling All Earthlings (2018) It's all faintly ridiculous, but charming, like people talking about the afterlife right before last call. ‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2018
92% Support the Girls (2018) Regina Hall so fully inhabits Lisa's life we hardly feel apart from her, tugged by the same frustrations, goodwill, minor satisfactions and disappointments.‐ Newsweek

80% What Keeps You Alive (2018) The dead center of the movie is a protracted rowboat chase no amount of thumping music can rescue. What Keeps You Alive barely picks up from there.‐ Newsweek

68% Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich (2018) The Littlest Reich is not just a clockwork puppet slasher, but a gleeful gore movie situated somewhere between Peter Jackson's Dead Alive and Troma. ‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2018
45% The Meg (2018) The Meg is oddly charming, more pulp than cheese, like the sci-fi pumped out in the 1950s.‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2018
8% Slender Man (2018) Slender Man feels as used up as any years-old meme, like trying to explain what's funny about dat boi a decade late.‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2018
89% Hereditary (2018) Hereditary feels like an endless drawing out of that queasy, shocking, falling dream sensation, as the ground beneath the Graham family, and the viewer, crumbles.‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2018
71% Damsel (2018) Damsel spends its second half literally wandering in the woods, with no clear destination or objective in mind.‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2018
58% Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) Despite characters whose individual plights would be just as boring to describe as they are to watch, Dark Web is just weird and ingenious enough to recommend.‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2018
97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Mission: Impossible - Fallout is an unrelentingly consistent action movie, with not a single sequence wasted before the next big stunt.‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2018
88% Veronica (Verónica) (2017) There's nothing in it that will surprise horror movie aficionados.‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted Jun 11, 2018
88% Ravenous (Les affamés) (2018) An interesting take on the zombie genre, but its laid-back indie narrative, which never really bothers with a plot, can make enjoying its occasional splatters of blood a bit of a slog.‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted May 23, 2018
81% Ghost Stories (2018) Ghost Stories has more genuine scares than most horror movies, so it almost seems a bit unfair when it's funny too.‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted May 23, 2018
19% The Titan (2018) The body horror genre thrives on disgust, shame and goo, all qualities lacking in The Titan.‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted May 23, 2018
46% The Devil and Father Amorth (2018) The Devil and Father Amorth starts to feel slippery, as Friedkin uses the sliver offered by psychologists and neurologists as a pry bar to crack open space for the supernatural.‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted May 23, 2018
92% Revenge (2018) What happens next is expected-a roaring rampage of revenge, with each of the three hunters confronted like a video game boss-but Fargeat has some fun tricks to deploy.‐ Newsweek
Read More | Posted May 23, 2018
86% Cargo (2018) Cargo doesn't often satisfy on the genre's more sensational vectors. There are no hordes, few gouts of creative gore and a limited sense of danger. ‐ Newsweek

86% Upgrade (2018) By merging Deus Ex cyberpunk, third-person action games and the dirty old bones of 70s exploitation, Upgrade earns installation in your memory core. ‐ Newsweek

95% Outside In (2018) Director Lynn Shelton brings a high empathic bar to Outside In, then dares the audience to clear it.‐ Newsweek
