Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B- 50% Trespass Against Us (2017) Gleeson and Fassbender enthusiastically feast on their meaty roles ... ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 19, 2017
C 22% The Bye Bye Man (2017) Maybe all will be explained in the sequel. If so, your writer is happy to remain uneducated. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 14, 2017
C- 17% Underworld: Blood Wars (2017) While the film may justify its title in terms of the viscera on display, it is badly in need of a funny bone. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 6, 2017
B 78% The Monster (2016) A simple but skillfully told shocker. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Nov 10, 2016
B+ 98% Under The Shadow (2016) Under the Shadow is a skilled, chilling feature debut that might follow you around a while after seeing it. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 6, 2016
B+ 96% Train to Busan (Bu-san-haeng) (2016) Really, the result is first-class throughout. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Aug 24, 2016
B+ 99% The Wailing (Goksung) (2016) Despite its epic length, The Wailing never bores as Na slathers his tale with generous supplies of atmosphere and awfulness. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jun 9, 2016
B 100% Hush (2016) Flanagan's taut direction reinforces his rep as an up-and-comer we will hopefully be hearing much more from. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Apr 8, 2016
B 43% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) If more inventive than scary, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies breathes fresh life into the hugely popular, but now desperately predictable, undead genre. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 3, 2016
B- 57% Jeruzalem (2016) The niftily claustrophobic use of actual Jerusalem locations offers a nice holiday from the more familiar backdrops favored by the POV genre. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 22, 2016
C+ 16% The 5th Wave (2016) A movie with a very high bodycount but a very small amount of grit, either emotional or literal. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 21, 2016
B 64% The Visit (2015) Suffice to say that the result is an effective scare machine and a semi-return to form for its creator. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 10, 2015
C 9% Fantastic Four (2015) This Josh Trank-directed reboot had a very low hurdle to overcome to become the best FF movie so far. The most fantastical aspect of the movie is that it may not achieve that goal. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Aug 6, 2015
B- 31% Poltergeist (2015) Poltergeist does benefit from briskness-it's actually 20 minutes shorter than Hooper's film-and there is a nice, Evil Dead 2-esque sequence involving a power drill. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted May 22, 2015
B 62% Unfriended (2015) Though not particularly ground-breaking-last year's Elijah Wood-starring Open Windows pulled the same trick, and much more ambitiously-we're still going to "like" the result. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Apr 16, 2015
57% Poor Cow (1967) Although Loach's heart is not so much in the right place as nailed to it, there is no doubt that this makes for gruelling viewing, lacking the glimpses of humour he would show in later work. ‐ Film4
Posted Mar 14, 2015
B+ 79% WYRMWOOD: Road Of The Dead (2015) While featuring mucho mayhem, Wyrmwood also takes refreshing liberties with the walking-corpse playbook. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 23, 2015
B+ 75% Starry Eyes (2014) Horror fans should keep their eyes on the filmmakers - and Essoe, who gives a star-making performance. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Nov 21, 2014
B 26% Jessabelle (2014) While this Blumhouse production may be a less ruthlessly efficient scream machine than, say, its corporate sibling Ouija, it is much more atmospheric and benefits from a winning central performance from Snook. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Nov 5, 2014
B 83% Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead (Død snø 2) (2014) Dementedly enjoyable ... ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 11, 2014
B+ 41% Tusk (2014) Tusk lands close to Human Centipede territory in gross-out-ness - a warning, not a complaint - but it also has a genuinely haunting quality ... ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 12, 2014
B+ 88% Coherence (2014) You have to love a film that not only explains the concept of Schrödinger's cat but also includes a joke about it. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jun 11, 2014
B 60% The Signal (2014) If all this sounds like a souped-up episode of The Twilight Zone or The X-Files, then you're in the right ballpark - or underground bunker. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jun 11, 2014
B 86% Chef (2014) The first two thirds of Chef crackle with hunger-inducing imagery and laughter-provoking gags. But the concluding road-movie section is less third act than travelogue. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted May 8, 2014
4/5 88% RoboCop (1987) A sardonic but perfectly-realised depiction of a mayhem-fuelled near future. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 11, 2014
C 3% I, Frankenstein (2014) Yvonne Strahovski makes for one of the least believable big screen scientists since Denise Richards' infamous turn as Dr. Christmas Jones. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 24, 2014
C+ 39% Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2014) The leads are appealing but the best scares will be familiar to anyone who has seen the previous films - or, for that matter, the trailer. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 6, 2014
B- 36% Aftershock (2013) Is no continent safe from the blood-drenched paws of filmmaker Eli Roth? ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted May 10, 2013
C+ 16% The Last Exorcism Part II (2013) Unfortunately, no one involved seems to have bent over backwards to make the movie either original or even all that scary. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Mar 1, 2013
B- 41% Dark Skies (2013) Sci-fi and horror fans know to keep watching the skies - but they won't be missing too much if they decide to skip this. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 22, 2013
C+ 4% Movie 43 (2013) It is utterly disgusting throughout. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 4, 2013
B- 10% A Haunted House (2013) Harkens back to the initial days of the oughties spoof craze, when screenwriters actually lampooned film genres rather than whatever the hell happened to catch their eye on YouTube as they sought inspiration. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 11, 2013
B- 37% The Collection (2012) Remarkably, the result manages to be both more preposterous and more efficient than its predecessor, with a couple of deaths occurring so swiftly they border on the subliminal. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Nov 28, 2012
C+ 53% Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning (2012) So gruelingly violent you half wonder if director John Hyams' goal is to make the audience get up and leave the theater rather than be party to the brutality. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Nov 28, 2012
B- 31% Resident Evil: Retribution (2012) During the film's final sequence the director explains all while also suggesting that the franchise's nuttiest days are, remarkably, yet to come. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 14, 2012
C- 5% The Cold Light of Day (2012) Apes The Bourne Identity so slavishly yet so boringly it winds up with no identity at all. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 7, 2012
C+ 11% Gone (2012) Which stinks worse? The absurdly large pile of red herrings Gone amasses? Or the film's sub-Scooby Doo conclusion? ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 25, 2012
C+ 6% The Devil Inside (2012) The Devil Inside's biggest shock arrives when it abruptly ends - just as it hits its stride. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 7, 2012
C+ 39% Johnny English Reborn (2011) Fans of sophisticated humor may feel empathy with, if not sympathy for, the lead character on those many occasions he is kicked in the nuts. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 19, 2011
4/5 100% Curse of the Demon (1958) Night Of The Demon packs a powerful punch despite featuring no gore or, demon excepted, much in the way of special effects. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 17, 2011
B 17% Into the Blue 2: The Reef (2009) Quote not available. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jul 14, 2011
B+ 72% Monsters (2010) The result impresses thanks to the lead actors' performances and Edwards' skilled efforts. But it should come with a warning: ''Here be (not many) monsters.'' ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Nov 17, 2010
4/5 95% Ghost in the Shell (1996) This is exactly the kind of film that James Cameron would make if they ever let him through the Disney front gates. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 16, 2010
C+ 29% Survival of the Dead (2010) There are some memorable images, including the sight of a beautiful, horse-riding ''dead head.'' But for much of the movie, Van Sprang's zombie fatigue seems to be an echo of Romero's own. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted May 26, 2010
C- 19% Legion (2010) Alas, after a brisk start, the script turns out to be a rough and humorless beast slouching its way towards utter ludicrousness. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 22, 2010
C+ 40% Armored (2009) Alas, Armored is one predictable and forgettable movie that should consider itself very lucky not to have gone straight to DVD. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Dec 4, 2009
B+ 85% Skin (2009) Skin is a tragic, enraging, and uplifting tale. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Nov 4, 2009
C+ 28% Pandorum (2009) As always, Foster sells the hell out of his role but non-sci-fi fans may well themselves be driven mad long before the end. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 27, 2009
B- 33% Tennessee (2009) Tennessee veers dangerously 
close to made-for-TV territory. But you utterly believe the bond between the siblings, and Rothenberg excels in his role of a protective older bro who also happens to be a haunted binge drinker. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jun 3, 2009
C 29% 12 Rounds (2009) Harlin makes good use of both the architecture of the city and of his formidably muscled leading man. But you will probably find yourself praying for this duel's knock-out punch to arrive long before it actually does. ‐ Entertainment Weekly
