Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
7/10 100% Roger Corman's Death Race 2050 (2016) Roger Corman's Death Race 2050 is loud, shrill, spastic, sadistic, stylish, slipshod, stupid and smart in equal measures. ‐
Posted Jan 23, 2017
9/10 75% Split (2017) Deranged thriller will certainly split audiences, but it's a daring piece of cinema. ‐
Posted Jan 21, 2017
74% We Are the Flesh (Tenemos la carne) (2017) Highly recommended to sophisticated perverts. All others... look out! ‐
Posted Jan 20, 2017
5/10 17% Underworld: Blood Wars (2017) Has some good central performances, visuals and ideas but still ends up being standard series fare. ‐
Posted Jan 6, 2017
8/10 84% The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) Dark, gory new film is almost the scariest movie ever made. ‐
Posted Dec 23, 2016
9/10 78% The Monster (2016) Zoe Kazan delivers a powerhouse performance in this masterful horror film. ‐
Posted Nov 6, 2016
6/10 43% The Girl on the Train (2016) If you loved Gone Girl, you'll think The Girl on the Train is... okay. ‐
Posted Oct 7, 2016
60% I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House (2016) It's uncompromising. And it cements Perkins as one of the most exciting architects of intelligent, artful genre films working today. ‐
Posted Oct 6, 2016
8/10 40% Salt and Fire (2016) Director Werner Herzog's latest mediation on man vs. nature is a divisive and surreal eco-thriller. ‐
Posted Sep 15, 2016
9/10 92% Queen of Katwe (2016) Director Mira Nair's fact based tale is moving and inspiring. ‐
Posted Sep 14, 2016
60% Viral (2016) It has more than a few eerie and intelligent deviations from the undead movie template to make it worth watching. ‐
Posted Jul 21, 2016
76% Lights Out (2016) David Sandberg's LIGHTS OUT isn't a bad horror movie. It's well produced, acceptably performed, with decent special effects and a barrage of shocks. But we've seen it before. Again and again. And again. ‐
Posted Jul 21, 2016
89% The Invitation (2016) A must see picture. ‐
Posted Jul 14, 2016
No Score Yet The Dark Stranger (2015) [It] would have worked far better as a single character psychodrama rather than the cluttered bid to become a standard issue, pedestrian horror-thriller it settles for being. ‐
Posted Jul 14, 2016
57% The Neon Demon (2016) It's a singular masterpiece. ‐
Posted Jun 17, 2016
No Score Yet Girl in Woods (2016) Girl in Woods is a valiant attempt at myth-making and a noble stab at creating a horror film that circumnavigates cliches while disorienting its audience. ‐
Posted Jun 3, 2016
No Score Yet Monsterland (2009) All in all Monsterland is a fun way to kill some time. ‐
Posted May 27, 2016
73% Dementia (2015) As good as Dementia is, its chief strength lies in [Gene] Jones' mesmerizing performance. ‐
Posted May 20, 2016
61% High-Rise (2016) This is Wheatley's most challenging, ambitious and, ultimately affecting film to date. ‐
Posted May 6, 2016
96% De Palma (2016) A remarkable film. ‐
Posted May 6, 2016
36% Sacrifice (2016) Good performances, compelling story, pretty cinematography and a brisk pace make Sacrifice a solid, inoffensive potboiler worth watching. ‐
Posted Apr 22, 2016
76% The Eyes of My Mother (2016) If you stick with it and navigate its deliberate pace, you'll be profoundly affected and moved. ‐
Posted Apr 8, 2016
95% The Love Witch (2016) The Love Witch is a kind of horror movie but it's far more than just that. It's as much a vibrant, daring art installation as it is a kind of highly sexualized vintage movie of the week. ‐
Posted Apr 5, 2016
68% Darling (2016) It's an immaculate work of art and one of the most affecting horror movies I've ever seen. ‐
Posted Apr 1, 2016
15% The Girl In The Photographs (2016) It feels like a product, shaped to the point of anonymity. ‐
Posted Apr 1, 2016
91% The Witch (2016) Magnificent. ‐
Posted Mar 4, 2016
90% Emelie (2016) Highly recommended, sophisticated horror. ‐
Posted Mar 4, 2016
No Score Yet Kill or Be Killed (2015) It's all such a great big, brutal ball of fun. ‐
Posted Feb 19, 2016
No Score Yet Upsidedown Cross (2014) It's a bold, visceral work of art trash and hopefully, it will find its cult. ‐
Posted Feb 19, 2016
27% The Boy (2016) One of the best contemporary wide release horror movies I've seen in years. ‐
Posted Feb 12, 2016
21% Diablo (2016) Diablo is not a great film by any stretch but it is stylish. ‐
Posted Feb 12, 2016
0% Cabin Fever (2016) There just is no point whatsoever to any of this childish, witless nonsense. ‐
Posted Feb 12, 2016
25% Bound to Vengeance (2015) Ultimately a daft, pulpy descent into stylized nastiness. ‐
Posted Nov 13, 2015
No Score Yet The Mask (Eyes from Hell) (Face of Fire) (1961) The 3D sequences are nothing short of astonishing. ‐
Posted Oct 23, 2015
11% Pay the Ghost (2015) Pay the Ghost offers the best of both Cage worlds, giving the actor a finely etched character to play as well as an abstract, phantasmagorical cinematic canvas for him to explore. ‐
Posted Oct 23, 2015
90% Bone Tomahawk (2015) For my money, Bone Tomahawk isn't just the best horror movie of 2015, it's the best movie, full stop. ‐
Posted Oct 23, 2015
3.5/4 No Score Yet Torture Chamber (2013) Like any self-respecting nightmare, TORTURE CHAMBER traps its audience in an environment and won't let them go until it's finished with them. ‐ Fangoria
Posted Apr 28, 2014
3.5/4 59% Nurse (2014) No matter what Nurse 3D is or isn't, as an entertainment, it rocks. ‐ Fangoria
Posted Feb 7, 2014
3.5/4 64% Cosmopolis (2012) This is vintage David Cronenberg, but an even more sophisticated, refined version. ‐ Fangoria
Posted Jun 14, 2012
79% Melancholia (2011) Melancholia is pure cinema without peer. And von Trier once again proves himself to be one of history's greatest audio/visual poets. ‐ Fangoria
Posted Oct 6, 2011
3.5/4 78% Canvas (2007) Movies don't come more personal than Canvas, writer/director/co-producer Joseph Greco's serious-minded exploration of the devastating effects unleashed by mental illness upon an otherwise tightly knit American family.‐ Metro
Posted Dec 12, 2008
28% Saw III (2006) The only brains on display are the ones that get drilled out of human skulls.‐ Rue Morgue Magazine
Posted Feb 12, 2007
16% Cursed (2005) There are so many contemptuous things to say about this disastrous Teen Wolf/Lost Boys clone that I'm not sure where to begin.‐ Rue Morgue Magazine
Posted Mar 30, 2005
31% The Forgotten (2004) The Forgotten, though not an outright bad movie, is yet another frustrating example of a Hollywood film that simply lacks the courage of its convictions.‐ Rue Morgue Magazine
Posted Mar 23, 2005
21% Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004) RE2 is a dreary, incoherent mess of a movie, failing on almost every conceivable level.‐ Rue Morgue Magazine
Posted Nov 9, 2004
25% Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood (2003) This self conscious dopey time waster is far better than it needs to be and in its own, dumb ***, base way, is probably the funniest movie I've seen all year.‐ Rue Morgue Magazine
