B 57% Beast Mode (2020) The movie accomplishes the hard job of balancing genuinely funny comedy with horror elements. Although it leans more on the slapstick comedy than gore. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT

B+ No Score Yet The Amityville Harvest (2020) The Amityville Harvest is a different kind of installment to the Amityville franchise, but it still provides a spooky ride into the horror universe. Fun scares and an overall good time. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2020
A 52% Hubie Halloween (2020) Hubie Halloween is a feel good Halloween movie with heart. If you're not a fan of Adam Sandler's kind of comedy you may not enjoy it, but overall it has laugh out loud moments. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT

C+ 90% Stars and Strife (2020) Stars and Strife seemingly has good intentions for a better world, but its skewed take on capitalism may leave many viewers unconvinced. - People's World EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2020
A 89% Madagasikara (2020) The film shines a cold and unforgiving light on how capitalist corruption and lack of international solidarity plunged a country into despair. It's bleak with lots of heart and hope. - People's World EDIT

B+ 66% The Lovebirds (2020) It's a highly funny movie that at times holds itself back from the full potential it could have embodied. - People's World EDIT
Read More | Posted May 21, 2020
A No Score Yet Killer Sofa (2019) It's a horror gimmick B-movie that actually has an engrossing plot, solid acting, a cool killer, and some actual creep factor. Not a cinematic masterpiece, but a fun ride with good scares. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT
Read More | Posted May 5, 2020
B 67% The Wave (2020) A wild and multi-genre ride. There are messages on life throughout, but it gets muddled in the confused plotting. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT

A- 78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) This film is one of the boldest in breaking away from overused tropes viewers have come to expect from action and comic book films alike. Women are behaving "badly" in Birds of Prey, and they are extremely unapologetic about it. - People's World EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2020
A 91% Miss Americana (2020) This isn't a surface-level film about fame, riches, and petty dramas. It would be easy to dismiss Taylor Swift as a shallow pop sensation with no influence on politics, but that assessment would be wrong. - People's World EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2020
A No Score Yet Nation's Fire (2020) If you like biker movies with a dash of thriller elements and horror like kills then Nation's Fire might be just what you're looking for. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT

B+ 48% American Son (2019) The film presents no clear answers, never lets up on the intensity, and provides no true comfort. It is not a movie for casual viewing, but aims to make you uncomfortable and affected. - People's World EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 25, 2019
A 100% Ghosts of Sugar Land (2019) The film attempts to explore the ramifications of an anti-Muslim atmosphere through an intimate lens of friendship, personal faith, and extremism. The results are mixed, but impactful. - People's World EDIT

A No Score Yet Flint: The Poisoning of an American City (2019) The film exposes the Flint crisis from a different angle. It connects labor history, environmental disaster, and the lost voice of a community. - People's World EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2019
A 68% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) ZombieLand: Double Tap was well worth the wait as the zombie universe is expanded and some great new characters are added to the mix. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2019
B- 58% In the Shadow of the Moon (2019) The pacing lags in multiple areas, but the mystery draws you in until the very end. It won't be everyone's cup of tea regarding the political theme, but the plot tie up is worth it. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2019
A 68% Joker (2019) The drama around Joker is overblown, mainly due to the media and people inserting messages in the film that aren't actually there. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2019
A 68% Joker (2019) Joker is ultimately an-in-your face examination of a broken class system that creates its own monsters. It's a gritty and morbidly beautiful journey with little comfort to spare, but many messages to mull over. - People's World EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2019
B- 62% Satanic Panic (2019) Satanic Panic goes on 20 minutes longer than it needs to, but the gore and laughs make up for that. Also, Rebecca Romijn gives a top notch horror villain performance. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2019
A 64% The Day Shall Come (2019) The jokes land well, while simultaneously showcasing that corruption of the government, and of those in power, is no laughing matter. - People's World EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2019
C+ 63% It Chapter Two (2019) IT Chapter Two has a lot going on in it- maybe too much. Pennywise is still pretty creepy, and there is compelling emotional depth, but the movie would have benefited from being 20 to 30 minutes shorter. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2019
C+ 13% Day of the Dead: Bloodline (2018) Day of the Dead: Bloodline tries to update the classic with a 'Me Too' angle and the results are mixed, but the classic zombie carnage makes up for it. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT

84% Crawl (2019) This creature feature has the right amount of gore, and just enough plot to bring it all together. The monster will not disappoint. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT

No Score Yet The Witch Files (2018) The Witch Files although going the overdone- and unnecessary- found footage route, actually tells an engrossing fantasy drama story with fun characters. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT

89% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) The film delivers on the non-stop fantastical action, but lags when trying to build the assassin universe beyond John Wick. This leads to an overinflated cast of characters. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 20, 2019
78% Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark has some truly terrifying monsters, and even poignant real world commentary. Yet, the film suffers from overly generic main characters and uneven plotting. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2019
29% The Curse of La Llorona (2019) The movie delivers on the jump scares, and gets extra points for exploring Mexican folklore. Yet, The Curse of La Llorona suffers from generic plot and easily forgettable characters. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2019
64% Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Annabelle Comes Homes continues to deliver on the old school scares. Yet, this particular installment felt younger in tone and not as intense as the previous film. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 12, 2019
83% Midsommar (2019) Midsommar starts off strong then devolves into a muddled mess. The filmmaker hopes you're too distracted by pretty visuals, solid acting, and violence to notice that this isn't a very good movie overall. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2019
67% Black Site (2019) A movie that takes a chance by trying to create its own mythos, for a fresh take on sci-fi horror. It does well in meshing the genres with likable characters and an interesting plot. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT

Read More | Posted Apr 15, 2019
58% Pet Sematary (2019) The film at its best is a no frills, slightly empty, adaptation of King's story. At its worst, it may feel like an episode of Tales from the Crypt that went on for one hour too long. - The Twisted Girl Next Door EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 5, 2019
44% Captive State (2019) Captive State skims the surface on the issues of resistance and systemic oppression, and due to scattered plotting, we never get to dive too deeply into any of it. - People's World EDIT
