87% The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) One of the best horror movies of the year. - EDIT

77% Split (2017) Split is good, 'ole fashioned Shyamalan. It will greatly reward those who have still stuck with the filmmaker throughout his career and will hopefully introduce a new generation to his special brand of storytelling. - EDIT

89% Better Watch Out (2017) The reason why I'm nervous to talk too much about it is because one of the movie's biggest strengths is having the audience constantly wondering where the line is drawn, and wondering what each character is capable of. - EDIT

89% The Invitation (2016) Thanks to some remarkable performances all around from its stellar cast, a deft directorial hand from Karyn Kusama, and a dark script that needles its way into your brain, it's a story and experience you'll not soon forget. - EDIT

3/5 68% The Visit (2015) A messed-up fairy tale that often nails the sweet spot between scaring us and letting us laugh at how scared we are. It's crowd-pleasing horror, the kind that can push moviegoers to the edge of their seats and send them to the water cooler the next day. - New York Daily News EDIT

74% Oculus (2014) Director Mike Flanagan (Absentia) apparently has not been paying attention to the rules of making mainstream horror movies in America, and that's probably why Oculus is one of the best American horror movies in years. - EDIT

65% 13 Sins (2014) A smart, highly entertaining thriller about the horrors people will go through in pursuit of a quick buck. - EDIT

79% You're Next (2013) To put it simply: miss it, and you're missing the most entertaining American horror film in years. - EDIT

81% Europa Report (2013) If you want some actual science in your science fiction, though, the only 2013 movie (so far; Gravity is still coming) that delivers is Europa Report. And oh how it does deliver. - EDIT

90% Attack the Block (2011) Some may complain about Cornish's readiness to assault your eyes and eardrums with zero warning, but a few loud bolts from the shadows still shouldn't result in anyone walking away unimpressed. - Cinematical EDIT

79% The Innkeepers (2012) It's this profound synchronicity between what the audience thinks and feels and what the characters feel -- a synchronicity all too often missing from most horror movies -- that elevate West's already remarkable instincts even higher. - Cinematical EDIT

71% The Adjustment Bureau (2011) Even if The Adjustment Bureau does have a few permanent bruises from running the Hollywood gauntlet, it's still a valiant effort about reconciling destiny and desire that pays off in intelligent, playful and memorable ways. - Cinematical EDIT

3% The Roommate (2011) It's efficiently-produced padding that can be used to fluff out the resumes of a few young Hollywood members. - Cinematical EDIT

.5/5 9% Little Fockers (2010) If no one kills themselves while watching 'Little Fockers' this weekend, it will be a Christmas miracle. - EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2010
3/5 87% Buried (2010) This film's opening alone is more terrifying than the entirety of most horror movies. - EDIT

49% Devil (2010) Don't let the Shyamalan snickering sway you from seeing this in theaters. You're bound to see it on DVD or cable down the line and regret that it took you that long to discover how good of a film it actually is. - Cinematical EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2010
2/5 72% Machete (2010) It's disappointing that a film with this many decapitations and naked Lindsay Lohans can be so boring. - EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2010
3/5 42% The Expendables (2010) A throat-slashing, elbow-dropping, grenade-throwing, trigger-pulling, and limb-dismembering good time. - EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2010
3/5 64% Predators (2010) A faithful, respectful hat tip to a franchise loved the world over. - EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2010
5/5 98% Toy Story 3 (2010) Toy Story 3 is an overwhelming success, rounding out what might just be the best film trilogy ever made. - EDIT

3/5 15% A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) Jackie Earle Haley is an excellent successor to the original's Robert Englund. Freddy Krueger isn't just scary again, he's the most disturbing he's ever been. - EDIT
