8/10 100% ZZ Top: That Little Ol' Band from Texas (2019) I greatly enjoyed ZZ Top: That Little Ol' Band From Texas, because I found out the reality behind a band that has always had a bit of a mythos behind them, much like the great state of Texas itself. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 28% Sadako (2019) The theme of Sadako, underneath the creepy crawling girl from the well, is the solidarity that survivors of trauma should share in order to make it easier to deal with. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 93% Sword of Trust (2019) [Sword of Trust] is a masterfully written, hilarious, ridiculous, and sad tale of life-like absurdity. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 100% Why Don't You Just Die! (Papa, sdokhni) (2018) This is not a film to see, if you can't stand the sight of blood... If you're desensitized to these things, for better or worse, such as myself, then you'll laugh and cringe and love the whole damn thing. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 59% Trespassers (2019) Trespassers has a really cool atmosphere. The setting is incredibly modern, but the special effects and gore are a product of the '70s and 80's horror which call to mind some classic home invasion films. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 22% Phil (2019) Phil manages to answer a lot of pertinent philosophical and psychological questions while also being ridiculously funny and not without a small fragment of hope. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 100% Kindred Spirits (2019) Lucky McKee has been around since the late '90s, directing some of the most interesting genre cinema out there, usually with women in the leading roles. Kindred Spirits is no exception. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Demon Squad (2019) Overall, I'd say that both Charlaine Harris and Raymond Chandler would be proud of this amalgamation of their source materials. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 64% Child's Play (2019) It's a darkly funny allegory about technology with awesome practical gore. Chucky as CGI is still weird to me, but it makes sense in a way. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 69% The Quiet One (2019) I enjoyed finding out more about Wyman and The Rolling Stones. They are legends for a reason. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 71% This One's for the Ladies (2019) I found This One's For The Ladies extremely interesting because it's a world so far removed from my own. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 66% Driven (2019) Driven is a short and sweet supernatural romp that never gets boring and somehow manages to pack laughs into what could be a very intense storyline in another film. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 90% Plus One (2019) The script by Jeff Chan and Andrew Rhymer is great, as is their direction. I feel like some of the dialogue must be improvised, considering the cast, but all of it feels very natural. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 90% Walking on Water (2019) Walking on Water is essential for any devotee of the arts, as this shows a project from fruition to dismantling, a full life cycle of an art installation if you will. I, for one, found it very fascinating. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 62% XY Chelsea (2019) Tim Travers Hawkins shows us the hardships and triumphs Chelsea has experienced over the years fairly objectively. However, one can't help but root for her at the end of the film. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 100% Nomad: In the Footsteps of Bruce Chatwin (2019) The film is intimate and like I said before..small. However, in some ways, it's larger than life, just as both the director and its subject. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 100% Martha: A Picture Story (2019) If you are interested in art history, or the history of New York, or photography, or graffiti, then you should check out Martha: A Picture Story. You don't need to be into any of those things to appreciate the struggle that Martha goes through... - Film Threat EDIT

6.5/10 100% CRSHD (2019) CRSHD is a great teen for whatever we're calling the current generation of teenagers and twenty-somethings...post-millennials? Generation Z? Whatever. This movie is made for them by one of them, and they will love it. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 100% Goldie (2019) This film is filled with bursts of color. The high energy visuals counterbalance the tragic malaise of Goldie's life perfectly. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 No Score Yet Initials SG (2019) I honestly don't want to say too much more because this film is definitely best approached as a surprise. In the end, you will be amazed by what you just saw. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 100% The Gasoline Thieves (Huachicolero) (2019) Edgar Nito and Alfredo Mendoza's script leaves you in all sorts of suspense. The ending to the film is one of the best and most shocking I've seen in quite some time. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 76% Knives and Skin (2019) It's one of the more artful pastiches of high school noir, and god knows it's a saturated market. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 82% Aamis (Ravening) (2019) The themes and metaphors in Aamis are about how love consumes us and how we consume the people we love...with love. It shows us that love is often never tied up in a pretty box with a bow, but is often messy, weird, insane, and maybe even disgusting. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 93% The Weekend (2019) The Weekend explores all kinds of relationships dynamics in its' rather short run time, and also manages to have some great cinematography and production design (courtesy of Kris Belchevski and Cindy Chao & Michele Yu respectively) to boot. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 86% Lil' Buck: Real Swan (2019) Lil Buck: Real Swan is a great feel-good rags-to-riches story that shows us that hard work and talent can take a person out of less than optimal circumstances. - Film Threat EDIT

7.5/10 100% House of Hummingbird (Beolsae) (2018) It is quite the depressing film, but it shows us that we as humans are masters of endurance. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Plucked (2019) The story of this theft is interesting and something that really couldn't be made up. Plucked is another documentary that uses a different story to make a commentary about the racial and economic divide in an American city. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 93% If the Dancer Dances (2019) If the Dancer Dances is obviously a must-see for any dancer, but even more than that, it's a good viewing experience for artists of any discipline. - Film Threat EDIT

5.5/10 17% Hellboy (2019) Insofar as a movie that stands alone from its source material, the new interpretation of Hellboy is a bit too proud of the fact that it has an "R" rating. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Victor Goodview (2018) Victor Goodview is definitely goofy. There's terrible ADR, a lot of weird time spent in bathrooms, too much man-butt, but it's still got a heart of gold underneath. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet The Browsing Effect (2019) It will make you feel like you're not alone in the world of virtual meat markets and that your experiences aren't uniquely horrible... - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 18% The Haunting of Sharon Tate (2019) [It] will make all who see The Haunting of Sharon Tate examine the Tate murders, and maybe our own lives, differently. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Edge of Isolation (2018) Insofar as low-budget horror goes, The Edge of Isolation is successful at exploring its subject matter without becoming to cheesy or hackneyed. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 88% To Dust (2019) I hope that more comedies can follow in To Dust's footsteps. We need some new blood, and it's weird that some of the newest come from a movie that has a lot to do with dead bodies. - Film Threat EDIT
