C+ 28% Antebellum (2020) What sounds at first like a fascinating adaptation of Octavia Butler's Kindred instead fumbles the narrative ball and goes ham-handed into a fully predictable ending that (without spoilers) we've all seen before. - AV Club EDIT

B 81% The Old Guard (2020) In a past life, this would be a standard B-movie shoot-'em-up. But, as Prince-Bythewood presents it, The Old Guard is an effective and tender bundle of contradictions, a franchise launchpad about (among other things) endings. - AV Club EDIT

D+ 9% Force of Nature (2020) It certainly isn't Polish's intention to make any grand political statements with his action thriller, but expecting empathetic connection with a callous white cop is a big ask in today's climate. - AV Club EDIT

57% The Cannibal Club (2019) A confident film that knows when to get nasty and when to pump the brakes for maximum effect. - Birth.Movies.Death. EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet BOO! (2018) The scares themselves are well-executed but the plot is saturated in dread, which is where the real craft shines through. A worthy watch. - Dread Central EDIT

No Score Yet Graveyard Shift (1987) As far as practical effects go, Graveyard Shift is an underappreciated treat for gorehounds. - Birth.Movies.Death. EDIT
