The Master Cleanse (2015)

"While details grow shaky - the logic and repercussions of certain actions don't seem to hold up - the effect is still an oddly original effort that marks Miller as a filmmaker to watch." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Oct 24, 2016

Split (2017)

"This is as straightforward a thriller as M. Night Shyamalan has delivered in years, and that works both to its advantage and detriment. And no, it's not an even split between the two." ‐Film School Rejects

The Girl With All the Gifts (2016)

"It's a refreshing spin on the familiar that feels at one with the world of 28 Days Later while still plotting its own path in character and emotional weight." ‐Film School Rejects

Safe Neighborhood (2016)

"Safe Neighborhood is a rarity that pairs immense entertainment with dark, vicious thrills." ‐Film School Rejects

Arrival (2016)

"Denis Villeneuve's latest is smart, hopeful, and intimately devastating science fiction." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 23, 2016

Blair Witch (2016)

"Wingard and Barrett's previous films are told with style, wit, and energy that amount to a voice uniquely their own. That voice is sorely missed here." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 16, 2016

Don't Breathe (2016)

"A smart and twisted breath of fresh air for a sub-genre at risk of growing stale." ‐Film School Rejects

Found Footage 3D (2016)

"An entertaining watch despite its missteps, and it's still far better than most found footage films as it delivers solid performances, smart observations, and a fun ride." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Aug 25, 2016

Hell or High Water (2016)

"All three leads do strong work with characters and a story that never quite approach their level, and together they make the film entertaining and engrossing despite itself." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Aug 19, 2016

Edge of Winter (2016)

"Almost works better as a revenge tale between a tree and a logger than it does a suspenseful story of survival. (It does not work well as either.)" ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Aug 13, 2016

Blood Father (2016)

"Low-key action junkies will be satisfied with this 88-minute romp, but Mel Gibson's fans will be rewarded with much more." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Aug 11, 2016

In a Valley of Violence (2016)

"Along with a ton of laughs, a terrific score, a great cast, and the best movie dog since Up the Creek." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 18, 2016

The Shallows (2016)

"The Shallows is a terrific little thriller that might just leave you dreading your next trip to the beach." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 26, 2016

Intruder (2016)

"The bottom line here is don't let this Intruder into your house." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 23, 2016

Cell (2016)

"Let this one go to voicemail, and just re-watch 1408 instead." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 20, 2016

The Conjuring 2 (2016)

"The talents involved commit to their craft and to the film, and the result is a rare horror movie that will have you jumping, smiling, and actually giving a damn." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 8, 2016

The Fits (2016)

"A beautiful, hauntingly precarious coming of age film that uses mystery and an at times dream-like atmosphere to create a mesmerizing tale." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 4, 2016

The Wailing (Goksung) (2016)

"A journey fraught with atmosphere, mystery, grim discoveries... and maybe a few laughs?" ‐Film School Rejects
Posted May 31, 2016

Chevalier (2016)

"The most broadly appealing film to come out of Greece in some time, but it's every bit as deserving of the attention afforded to its crazier cousins." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted May 28, 2016

The Ones Below (2016)

"Feels in some ways like a '90s thriller à la The Hand that Rocks the Cradle or Arlington Road, but it lacks either of those films' thrills." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted May 26, 2016

The Nice Guys (2016)

"In a competition between Shane Black first directorial effort and his third, The Nice Guys finishes second." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted May 24, 2016

X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

"It's faint praise, but X-Men: Apocalypse does what it does well enough. The real issue is what it doesn't do." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted May 13, 2016

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

"Delivers an epic adventure that finds its greatest power by scaling back the superhero antics to reveal the human combatants at their core." ‐Film School Rejects

The Loner (2016)

"A neon-lit fever dream where culture and sexuality tease an undefined fluidity as Persian and Russian gangsters fight over L.A.'s drug scene." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 17, 2016

Colonia (2016)

"Emma Watson shines even as the film grows dull with contrivances and generic beats." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2016

The Jungle Book (2016)

"Is it an improvement on Walt Disney's original? Yes, yes it is." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2016

Holidays (2016)

"Lots of mediocrity here, but two of the shorts -- "Easter" and "Father's Day" -- make it worth the price of admission." ‐Film School Rejects

Green Room (2016)

"Green Room is a vicious, grisly, suspenseful roller-coaster ride with a razor-sharp safety bar, and you are going to get cut." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2016

Hardcore Henry (2016)

"It may not be one of the best video game movies, but it's definitely the most video game movie." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 8, 2016

Midnight Special (2016)

"It introduces us to a boy we're told is meant for something great, but instead it's greatness that the film leaves behind." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 6, 2016

The Girl In The Photographs (2016)

"Good looks can't save the girls in the photographs or THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 1, 2016

They're Watching (2016)

"It makes some progress, but it unsurprisingly stalls where so many found footage films have failed before." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 25, 2016

Another Evil (2015)

"Moves between truly frightening beats, laugh out loud dialogue, and some painful observations, and in doing so it stands well apart from its typical haunted house brethren." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 22, 2016

Hush (2016)

"It's a game of cat and mouse, but while it proceeds as expected in the grand scheme - killer stalking a victim who tries to stay a step ahead - the thrills are in the details." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 22, 2016

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

"It so badly wants you to be excited for "Justice League" that it forgets to keep you excited about "Batman v Superman."" ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 22, 2016

10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)

"A tightly-wound, achingly-suspenseful, terrifically-acted thriller that keeps viewers on unsteady ground until the end credits start to roll." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 11, 2016

The Devil's Candy (2015)

"The Loved Ones gets a fantastic follow-up with the rare horror film that not only ramps up the intensity to end on a high but that also features characters whose fates we genuinely come to care about." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 7, 2016

Road Games (2016)

"A twisty little ride through the French countryside where everyone is suspect of playing hide the cheese knife." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 6, 2016

Emelie (2016)

"It survives mainly on the power of Sarah Bolger's lead performance, but there are enough unsettling beats to make it worth a watch for genre fans." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 6, 2016

London Has Fallen (2016)

"If mid-'80s Chuck Norris' beard emigrated from his face, went to film school, and directed a movie - LONDON HAS FALLEN would be that movie." ‐Film School Rejects

Ava's Possessions (2016)

"Ava's Possessions isn't a bad film by any stretch, but it's frustrating to watch it plod along while an abundance of promise sits just outside of the frame." ‐Film School Rejects

B- 82%

The Wave (Bolgen) (2016)

"The Wave has heart, laughs, and a big goddamn wave of destruction, and while we might have wanted more we don't actually need more. Enjoy it for what it is." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Feb 29, 2016

Eddie The Eagle (2016)

"It's never a bad thing to be reminded of the value of trying your best, regardless of the outcome, but there's also no harm in hoping the filmmakers do a bit better next time." ‐Film School Rejects

B+ 98%

Under The Shadow (2016)

"Under the Shadow gives us something to fear and something to think about, and that's two more things than most horror films can claim." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Feb 23, 2016

The Abandoned (2016)

"A visually and emotionally effective descent into darkness." ‐Film School Rejects

The Demolisher (2015)

"There is violence in The Demolisher, but the focus is more on its lingering effects than on its gratuitous display. Instead, the film's most affecting and powerful moments are those more concerned with the pain that comes in the silences after." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Feb 16, 2016

Cabin Fever (2016)

"It feels flat throughout, the bloodletting disappoints, and perhaps most damning of all, it neuters "pancakes."" ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Feb 12, 2016

Zoolander 2 (2016)

"Bad enough to make you consider retreating from society and becoming a hermit crab." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Feb 12, 2016

Tumbledown (2016)

"It trips over itself trying to balance its themes alongside the comedy and romance, but as tumbles go it's a painless one." ‐Film School Rejects
Posted Feb 12, 2016
B 80%

The Last Survivors (The Well) (2014)

"A smartly-crafted, lo-fi apocalypse that packs in substantial substance and care for its budget." ‐Film School Rejects
