33% Desolation (2018) Desolation is not quite popcorn fare with its spots of disturbing imagery, but it is a highly energetic, instropective, and honest piece. - Graveyard Shift Sisters EDIT

78% The Void (2017) I can't promise that it will all come together and make sense after one viewing. The rewatchability factor is, I'm happy to report, extremely high... - Graveyard Shift Sisters EDIT

98% Get Out (2017) ...it'll be with us years later as shattered pieces from its fall, making sense for the future of how we talk about racism, and the human monster that hides within it. - Graveyard Shift Sisters EDIT

No Score Yet Firstborn (2016) FirstBorn is worth the time its given, and if you adore Antonia Thomas from the UK television series' Mistfits or even Lovesick, you'll definitely nod to the young actress' range and promise as a starlet. - Graveyard Shift Sisters EDIT

No Score Yet Quarries (2016) Quarries is a beautifully shot, female-driven, earnest attempt at visual self actualization and inner-strength. - Graveyard Shift Sisters EDIT

73% Buster's Mal Heart (2017) These themes of class and ethnicity in Buster's Mal Heart aren't frying pan head blows. They're subtle in order to sneak into your subconscious and reveals how a system, also subtly placed in Reagan's America is shattered. - Graveyard Shift Sisters EDIT

92% Dearest Sister: Nong Hak (2016) Nok's journey is a human one, and the climax of such a trek leaves you a feeling of satisfaction and intensity from not only from the story, but also of what Do will do next. - Graveyard Shift Sisters EDIT

64% The People Under The Stairs (1991) The everyday and mundane that lures us into a false sense of security can become the very sight of anxiety. [Wes Craven]... does so with a certain complexity and I think his sleepers don't get the attention they deserve. - Cinema Axis EDIT

90% Attack the Block (2011) I'm glad that science-fiction continues to nip at our sense of social consciousness with remarkable storytelling. - Cinema Axis EDIT

14% Troop Beverly Hills (1989) Troop Beverly Hills thoughtfully exposes the complexities of divorce, social/class culture and personal growth in a light comedy very much loyal to its time. - Birth.Movies.Death. EDIT

93% Us (2019) Its cold opening and the eerie tale that follows became a test of my own emotional state that I was not prepared in any way to face. And that's just one of the ways that makes this heavily symbolic film so brilliant. - Graveyard Shift Sisters EDIT

33% The Final Project (2016) The ending does stray a bit from predictable and reeks of sequel. However, it's a sequel you wouldn't care for let alone want. - Birth.Movies.Death. EDIT

78% The Eyes of My Mother (2016) It is an extremely moving film, and brutally exposes the damage we as people can easily inflict upon one another. - Birth.Movies.Death. EDIT
