8/10 94% The Golem (2019) The Golem is creepy, as the cinematography is awash with atmosphere and the use of such a creature is interesting. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 No Score Yet Crossbreed (2019) Crossbreed could have aired on the Sci-Fi Channel in 1999 and felt right at home and I mean that in the best possible way. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 90% The Kid Who Would Be King (2019) Joe Cornish has pulled off a fantastic feat- a children's fantasy adventure that balances the drama, action, and humor perfectly and will keep an audience of any age entertained through its entire runtime. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 89% I Am Paul Walker (2018) It reminds me quite a bit of the late actor himself. It is not the flashiest, nor most stylized of films, much in the same way he was a very understated actor. However, both the documentary and Walker emote such genuine and touching sincerity... - Film Threat EDIT

6.5/10 No Score Yet Wonderwall (1969) Prism Of Light is impressive in that the person who made it is so young. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 100% Bedlam (2019) On an educational and activism front it hits all the right notes. As a movie, the documentary suffers from a poorly paced beginning but gets better and more engaging by the halfway mark. - Film Threat EDIT

4/10 89% ANTHROPOCENE: The Human Epoch (2018) I can't exactly call Anthropocene: The Human Epoch a bad movie as it is made with good intentions and the cinematography is truly epic and sweeping. However, there is little reason to be invested... - Film Threat EDIT

5/10 No Score Yet Goodnight, Charlene (2019) Goodnight, Charlene is decently directed, beautifully lit, and most of the cast are do well all things considered. However, two of the leads are quite dull, the script is trying too hard to be duplicitous, and winds up going nowhere all that compelling. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Up and Away (2018) Up And Away has decent visuals, fine voice acting, and a high sense of fun. - Film Threat EDIT

B+ No Score Yet Regionrat (2019) Flaws and all, Regionrat is a compelling coming of age story. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 85% A Boy Called Sailboat (2018) A Boy Called Sailboat is made with passion by very talented people. It's whimsical, slightly magical tale is a joy to watch, and the sweet-natured atmosphere is going to delight viewers for years to come. - Film Threat EDIT

1/10 No Score Yet Elves (2018) The Elf might have been awful and confusing, but writer-director Justin Price at least made it feel like a narrative was being told. Elves can't even manage that basic task; nothing happens, and no one has an arc of any kind. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 81% The Quake (Skjelvet) (2018) The reason to watch the film is the excellent cinematography and awe-inspiring effects. - Film Threat EDIT

7.5/10 50% American Hangman (2019) [It] makes a mystery out of a few things that are too easy to guess, so it takes a while to get going. However, thanks to sharp direction, an original take on the dramatic police procedural, and a truly excellent, very game cast, the movie is worthwhile. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Prodigy (2018) Prodigy has a subplot that stops the main action for a few unneeded diversions, but writer-director Nathan Leon's heart is in the right place. - Film Threat EDIT

7.5/10 86% All the Creatures Were Stirring (2018) All The Creatures only gets eerie a handful of times, and like most anthologies, not all the segments are worthwhile. However, the directing throughout is good, the actors are all having a blast, and the stories that do work are very original... - Film Threat EDIT

8.5/10 No Score Yet Backyard Blockbusters (2012) Hudgens clearly loves the fan film community and understands what they sacrifice to produce a fan film. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Tazzeka (2018) Tazzeka has a lot to say about the passion that fuels people, the way society treats immigrants, and how those two elements interrelate. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 20% Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers (2018) The movie is well edited and moves at a brisk pace. But the narration by Mickey Rourke is poorly handled and brings the film down a bit. - Film Threat EDIT

2/10 No Score Yet Bonehill Road (2017) Bonehill Road proves to be a crushing disappointment. The werewolves, which the filmmakers are heavily marketing, look bad and don't figure into the plot in any meaningful way. - Film Threat EDIT

4/10 40% Swiped (2018) Swiped is a comedy that is not funny; granted such things are wildly subjective. Beyond that though, its take on relationships is remarkably dated... - Film Threat EDIT

5/10 No Score Yet 8 Remains (2018) 8 Remains is mostly well acted, shot beautifully, and directed with skill and confidence. However, the story has some major holes, and a lack of internal consistency makes for a frustrating watch. - Film Threat EDIT

3/10 No Score Yet Blood and Paradise (2018) There is a good mystery at the core of Blood Paradise, but in his feature-length debut, Patrick Von Barkenberg fails to bring it to the forefront - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Krampus Origins (2018) Krampus Origins suffers from poor characterizations for almost every person in the story. However, the acting is reliable from all involved, and the director ably juggles the drama and horror scenes to good effect. - Film Threat EDIT

7.5/10 57% Time Trap (2018) Time Trap is highly creative, populated with relatable characters, with a whip-smart script. Sadly, the very end of the movie undoes the tense atmosphere setup throughout. While it does not ruin the film, it does leave one a bit disappointed. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 92% Saving Brinton (2018) aving Brinton loses focus a few times, but its noble heart will keep the viewer engaged. Zahs is an affable chap, and his love of history is remarkable. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 66% Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich (2018) While a few flaws are present, the directors and screenwriter deliver a high energy bloodbath with several creepy scenes, excellent puppetry work, and a cast that shines brightly. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 38% I Am Vengeance (2018) I Am Vengeance does not break the mold, but it uses its tried and true formula to good effect. Decent action, interesting characters, and a fantastic cast make for a fun watch. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Better Angels (2018) Better Angels starts off rough, with a very amateur production and chintzy effects. Once through those first few minutes, awkward though they are, the film becomes revelatory. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet The Legend of Hallowaiian (2018) [It's] cute and offers younger viewers a fun and important message. However, the lack of detail in the backgrounds hurt the atmosphere the screenplay attempts to create. The voice acting helps a lot though, and Pineapple Head is a memorable villain. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 No Score Yet Travel Ban: Make America Laugh Again (2018) Travel Ban: Make America Laugh Again is frustrating to watch. Not because it is poorly made; it is not, quite the opposite in fact. Instead, it is frustrating that in this day and age, a person still has to fight for their right to be considered human... - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Nowhere Mind (2018) The cast overcomes all flaws with their outstanding performances, and once Nowhere Mind takes off, it is very satisfying. - Film Threat EDIT

B+ 20% Reach (2018) Coupled with a strong, charismatic cast and intelligent dialogue, this is a relatively original coming-of-age story. - Film Threat EDIT

5.5/10 No Score Yet Warning Shot (2018) Warning Shot proves that Dustin Fairbanks is capable of delivering a great movie. This is not it, as the screenplay doesn't explain enough, it takes a while for the tension to start building, and the miscasting of an essential character hinders [it]. - Film Threat EDIT

No Score Yet Molly (2018) The movie is ultimately a visual triumph with heart-pounding action scenes. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2018
2/10 50% Strange Nature (2018) The directing style of Strange Nature fails to bring any atmosphere, the acting is so nondescript that it barely registers (with two notable exceptions), and a lack of cohesive vision leaves the movie uncertain of what it truly is. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 40% E-Demon (2018) e-Demon is original, told in a striking, engaging manner, with stellar acting, and a good number of scares. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 88% Intelligent Lives (2018) Sadly, it is all told in a rather flat manner and does not dive deep enough into the personal lives of its subjects for them to feel whole. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 92% Porcupine Lake (2017) Porcupine Lake is a brutally honest coming of age film, whose ending is a gut punch of raw emotions. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 27% The Last Sharknado: It's About Time (2018) The Last Sharknado: It's About Time is the second best in the series, and therefore the franchise ends on a high note. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Project 12: The Bunker (2016) One will be entertained by The Bunker: Project 12 for the duration of its runtime. However, despite strong visual flair, the viewer will be hard pressed to recall specific plot details by the time the end credits finish rolling. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Marsha Hunt's Sweet Adversity (2018) This documentary's real power comes from its portrait of resilience. Seeing how the USA, and the people most affected by HUAC's practices, shifted, changed for the better, and survived. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 No Score Yet 1/1 (2018) 1/1 is not a movie you passively watch. It is a full-throttled experience that encompasses a variety of styles. - Film Threat EDIT

5/10 89% Pin Cushion (2018) Haywood's strengths as a director don't translate to her writing abilities. Pin Cushion is about cruelty above all else, to the exclusion of characterizations. - Film Threat EDIT

6.5/10 No Score Yet Darkness Reigns (2017) Darkness Reigns is not that scary, and the reason everything is put into motion is not very interesting. However, the directing and cinematography get a lot of mileage out of the location, and the actors all do a credible job. - Film Threat EDIT

5.5/10 No Score Yet Long Time Coming: A 1955 Baseball Story (2018) It is all competent, but it never becomes as engrossing as such a compelling story would suggest. - Film Threat EDIT
