T-Meter Title | Year
2/5 73% An American Pickle (2020) While it looks lovely, An American Pickle is ultimately out of step with the times in which it finds itself. - Starburst EDIT

4/5 85% She Dies Tomorrow (2020) She Dies Tomorrow aches with tension and possibility, and maintains that through to the last frame, refusing to let the viewer off with easy answers. - Starburst EDIT

4/5 100% Uncle Peckerhead (2020) There's a ton of heart in Uncle Peckerhead, thanks to the fact that the music sounds like a real band. It's catchy, kind of like a mix between the bouncy underground pop of Lemuria, mixed with Green Day's stadium punk rock. - Starburst EDIT

2/10 57% Dreambuilders (2020) While the imagery is gorgeous, and the final half hour certainly an improvement upon what's preceded it, the overall impression of this animated film is one of being overwhelming underwhelmed. - Starburst EDIT

9/10 100% Inmate #1: The Rise of Danny Trejo (2019) Inmate #1: The Rise of Danny Trejo is a remarkably thorough and well-considered film. - Starburst EDIT

4/10 7% Fantasy Island (2020) Fantasy Island plays out like an overlong version of a television pilot. It's definitely a quarter of an hour minutes too long, - Starburst EDIT

7/10 88% After Midnight (Something Else) (2020) If a viewer's willing to accept that there might be more tenderness than terror, accepting the brief scenes of fiendish interaction for what they are, however, After Midnight can be a rewarding experience. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 97% Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound (2019) By film's end, it's been less a documentary experience, and more like having some new, talented friends telling war stories about what they do for a living. - Starburst EDIT

6/10 64% Dead Ant (2019) The actors, while B-movie grade, are still professional, and commit fully to the premise at hand. There's no attempt to try to make Giant Killer Ants more than it is, but there's also no winking and nodding at the audience, either. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 88% Prospect (2018) The otherworldly aspect of the film is very important, it being sci-fi and all, but the ability of the designers to create a practical, lived-in world makes Prospect a film to which the viewer can connect. - Starburst EDIT

9/10 81% Knife + Heart (Un couteau dans le coeur) (2019) A film which is fascinating, involving, and a faithful yet clever inversion of a genre which is all too frequently about style over substance. - Starburst EDIT

6/10 75% Book of Monsters (2019) The effects are good, and the monster designs are legitimate, but it seems that all the work went into making Book of Monsters look interesting. Unfortunately, beneath the surface, it's revealed that the film is nothing but a thin veneer. - Starburst EDIT

7/10 100% Videomannen (2018) While Videoman's appeal initially lies with its obsessive collector aspects and nerd appeal, the lasting value of Söderström's film rests with the tale of grown-up romance between two broken souls. - Starburst EDIT

64% St. Agatha (2019) While the viewer might not be surprised by one single plot point, St. Agatha is perfectly entertaining. - Starburst EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Ugly Sweater Party (2018) Mento doesn't lean into the Christmas aspect of the film nearly enough for this to count as a holiday slasher, aside from some strung-up lights and the occasional decoration. - Starburst EDIT

7/10 60% Bonehill Road (2017) Bonehill Road sees the writer-director pulling back into something more intimate. - Starburst EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Vidar the Vampire (2018) Once the film removes Vidar from his small, rural Christian village and moves him to the big Norwegian city, it turns from the oddball in a group of oddballs and becomes just another fish out of water story. - Starburst EDIT

1/10 No Score Yet Slasher.com (2016) Everything about the presentation is utterly lacking. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 96% The Old Dark House (1932) Watching it, the viewer will discover that the likes of The Cabin in the Woods, The Evil Dead, and more all had their start half a century before. - Starburst EDIT

1/10 No Score Yet House on Elm Lake (2017) In the end, House on Elm Lake is a dull, rote, mess of a film, only occasionally enlivened by some blood and screams. - Starburst EDIT

8/10 70% The Cured (2018) In the end, The Cured is a film which will make the viewer think, jump at frights, and possibly cry twice during the last ten minutes. - Starburst EDIT
