Diary of the Dead (2007)

"What undermines the movie is a streak of moralizing undercutting the humor that's a vital ingredient to any good zombie flick."
Posted Mar 1, 2008

Chicago 10 (2008)

"The Signal is not for the squeamish, but the violence is doled out judiciously and interspersed with moments of mordant, truly biting comedy."
Posted Mar 1, 2008

The Orphanage (2007)

"Anyone who enjoys a good scare - and a good conversation - should see, and enjoy this latest addition to the Jamesian tradition of intelligent horror."
Posted Nov 28, 2007

The Omen (2006)

"'The Omen' is not a bad film. It just suffers in comparison to its original."
Posted Jun 6, 2006

United 93 (2006)

"A powerful and engrossing account undiluted by the sentimentality that often mars Hollywood depictions of history."
Posted Apr 28, 2006

Scary Movie 4 (2006)

"It's almost as though the filmmakers were trying to frustrate and annoy horror fans, and it's a hardy soul who will be willing to sit out the entire 123 minutes."
Posted Apr 13, 2006

Slither (2006)

"In this well-made, well-acted, and funny sci-fi horror hybrid, wet alien flesh glistens and pulsates, penis-like organs strain to plunge into the flesh of unwilling victims..."
Posted Apr 3, 2006

V for Vendetta (2006)

"Important plot points are treated in a rushed, perfunctory manner and what could have been a fascinating parable about tyranny, terrorism, and the sheer charisma of violence becomes just another series of bloody fight scenes."
Posted Mar 18, 2006

Saw II (2005)

"In 'Saw II,' both the cops and the victims are so dim the whole elaborate exercise hardly seems worthwhile. "
Posted Oct 28, 2005

Stay (2005)

"A richly detailed, fascinating, and insightful puzzle that should prompt many to go back for a second look"
Posted Oct 21, 2005

Into the Blue (2005)

"Devolves into a series of silly fight and chase scenes in which bad guys are bloodily maimed and dispatched while most of the good guys come out miraculously unscathed"
Posted Sep 30, 2005

UNDEAD (2005)

"Offers both a broadly funny Australian spin and a unique attempt to make sense out of the senseless conventions of zombie films"
Posted Jul 5, 2005

House of Wax (2005)

"The unmistakable promise of a sequel in the last scene inspires more resignation than anticipation."
Posted May 6, 2005

The Ring Two (2005)

"To those who saw and enjoyed the first one, it's a bitter disappointment."
Posted Mar 18, 2005

Alone in the Dark (2005)

"None of it hangs together enough to make a coherent narrative."
Posted Jan 27, 2005

The Forgotten (2004)

"'The Forgotten' deserves to be. "
Posted Sep 27, 2004

Shaun of the Dead (2004)

"'Shaun of the Dead' has that most vital ingredient of any good zombie film, an underlying layer of social commentary that gives the script a brain."
Posted Sep 24, 2004

Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004)

"It is not in the least bit scary and most of the best traditions of zombie films are ignored."
Posted Sep 12, 2004

Exorcist: The Beginning (2004)

"A great waste of time, talent and resources"
Posted Aug 21, 2004

L' Imbalsamatore (The Embalmer) (The Taxidermist) (2002)

"A twisted and fascinating tale, with a climax that's as logical as it is unexpected"
Posted May 22, 2004

Godsend (2003)

"By the climax the last vestiges of mystery and believability have been so effectively destroyed that there's no real tension."
Posted Apr 29, 2004

Dawn of the Dead (2004)

"Intelligent and gripping version that wields the same sledge-hammer horror and wit as the original"
Posted Mar 18, 2004

Secret Window (2004)

"Will appeal to...horror fans who prefer an ending that truly sinks its teeth into the story and concludes it with a crisp, satisfying crunch."
Posted Mar 11, 2004

The Butterfly Effect (2004)

"In an era of senseless action and lobotomized scripts that rely too heavily on special effects, even the modest food for thought offered by 'The Butterfly Effect' is welcome."
Posted Jan 22, 2004

Gothika (2003)

"Those who like their chills diluted may enjoy it, but anyone who prefers their horror straight up is likely to find the film a disappointment."
Posted Nov 21, 2003

Scary Movie 3 (2003)

"A strong emphasis on sight gags, cameos, a little social satire, and an absolutely merciless attack on sentiment."
Posted Oct 23, 2003

Goodbye, Mr. Chips ()

"Comes as close as it can to capturing the book's unromantic and genuinely touching spirit."
Posted Oct 15, 2003

Out of Time (2003)

"The sure-handed direction of Carl Franklin...makes a complex story both lucid and believable."
Posted Oct 2, 2003

Cold Creek Manor (2003)

"A potentially good story spoiled by being not just badly, but stupidly told. It therefore deserves no quarter."
Posted Sep 18, 2003

Cabin Fever (2002)

"A well-crafted, truly nasty piece of work"
