T-Meter Title | Year Review
71% Piercing (2019) The director of 'The Eyes of My Mother' trades B&W for S&M, and the result is 81 minutes of twisted brilliance. - Film School Rejects EDIT

40% Revenger (2018) It already looks like Netflix has once again gifted us with one of the year's best action movies. - Film School Rejects EDIT

26% Polar (2019) If the sight of a smiling, one-eyed Mikkelsen dispatching those who cross him by any means available doesn't get your motor running then nothing else here stands a chance. - Film School Rejects EDIT

86% The Sharks (2019) Something truly special as both it and its lead move hypnotically to the beat of their own drum (and to a rhythmic sync score). - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2019
100% Queen of Hearts (2019) A tragic reminder that we're all capable of destroying the ones we love. - Film School Rejects EDIT

65% Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) Not a great film destined for museum archives but its various elements come together to create an entertaining and absurd experience. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2019
78% The Lodge (2019) A definite slow-burn that grows darker by the minute, and it commits to that grim progression. Proceed with caution. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2019
38% Close (2019) A strong Noomi Rapace performance and some solid action are balanced by an underwhelming ending. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 21, 2019
73% The Standoff at Sparrow Creek (2019) The world we live in is a gray one... or maybe it just looks that way through all the gun powder and tear gas. - Film School Rejects EDIT

No Score Yet Unstoppable (Seong-nan-hwang-so) (2018) You care about these people. You nod approvingly as asses are kicked. And you might get a little wet-eyed as it all comes to an end. That's not too shabby. - Film School Rejects EDIT

86% All the Creatures Were Stirring (2018) Only 1 of the 5 shorts truly delights, but it's still the second best Christmas horror anthology film ever made. (Yes, there are only two, but let's think positive people!) - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 26, 2018
40% The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) Director Fede Alvarez delivers a competent film with The Girl In the Spider's Web, and if that sounds like underwhelming praise, well, that's intentional. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 13, 2018
No Score Yet Black Mountain Side (2013) A beautifully-shot, creepy love letter to John Carpenter's The Thing that finds its own identity amid the paranoia and bloodletting. - Film School Rejects EDIT

85% Rabbit (2017) A powerful mix of Australia's natural beauty and that same landscape's inherent embrace of nightmares. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2018
80% Overlord (2018) A genre blast that blends elements as diverse as Saving Private Ryan and Re-Animator into a big, gloriously proud B-movie. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2018
C- 55% Orphan (2009) It does squander a strong setup though with an increasing amount of camp. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2018
61% Us and Them (2018) Turns out jerks come with all different sized bank accounts. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2018
59% Something Wicked This Way Comes (1983) It's a reminder of when kids movies were about more than farts and wise-cracking animals, and its visuals retain their power to unsettle and unnerve. - Slashfilm EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2018
62% You Might Be the Killer (2018) A (very) slight diversion for casual horror fans. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2018

Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2018

Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2018
25% Mara (2018) You're not dreaming... it's another mediocre horror movie about sleep paralysis. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
No Score Yet Reprisal (2018) "These people have been through enough," says a character in the film's final minutes, and you can't help but think he's talking about the audience. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2018
89% What Still Remains (2018) Less of a post-apocalyptic thriller and more of a character drama answering the implied question of the title. We still remain. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2018
94% CAM (2018) Cam sets traditional concerns of identity and paranoia in a modern setting, and it's more harrowing for it. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
49% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) The only thing more surprising than the lack of laughs is the abundance of kick-ass action. - Film School Rejects EDIT

Read More | Posted Aug 6, 2018

Read More | Posted Aug 6, 2018
86% The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion (Manyeo) (2018) Think La Femme Nikita by way of Psychokinesis, and enjoy the ride. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 6, 2018
No Score Yet The Last Warrior (The Scythian) (2018) The Scythian is old-school action/adventure entertainment with a serious enough throughline to give it dramatic and historical credibility without ruining the fun. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
100% Night Comes On (2018) It's a quick journey made longer by affection, and it's one you'll want to take. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
52% Our House (2018) A competent and confident look at how blind hope can overlook real dangers before us. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2018
45% A Night In Old Mexico (2014) Red's personal journey remains a fun ride, a feat due as much to Duvall as to the script, but Gally's own coming of age portion of the tale falls flat. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2018
51% Equalizer 2 (2018) An unexpected but terrific character piece punctuated with thrilling action beats. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2018
46% Skyscraper (2018) Grows sillier even as it gets more serious, but solid action, a compelling lead performance, and Neve Campbell kicking ass help make it an entertaining climb into hell. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2018
54% The First Purge (2018) So on the nose it's boring. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2018

Read More | Posted Jul 10, 2018
22% Bleeding Steel (2018) While Bleeding Steel is most certainly inane and incomprehensible it's also... a little bit fun? - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2018
69% Damsel (2018) They once again mix tragedy, humanity, and comedy, but this time the emphasis is on the laughs. Fair warning though, its brand of comedy is equal parts dry and devastating. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2018
No Score Yet She Remembers, He Forgets (2015) She Remembers, He Forgets is interested in the promises we make ourselves and each other, and while it never judges us for failing to follow through it does suggest that it's never too late to try - at least, until it is. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
62% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) Weightless but thrilling all the same. - Film School Rejects EDIT
