No Score Yet Benjamin Troubles (2015) Snappy, acerbic script by Lee Ross is augmented by first time director Kai Ephron's pathos for his characters and situations. ‐ StaciWilson.com

3/5 83% Midnighters (2017) Although I was able to see where every turn was headed, thanks to the fine filmmaking and able acting, I didn't mind; I was content to just go along for the ride.‐ Dread Central

2.5/5 72% Sleight (2017) I just can't recommend you rush to the theater to see it. This movie feels like a practice run. Hopefully the next collaboration between Dillard and Blumhouse - a "survival horror" called Sweetheart - will be better.‐ Dread Central

3/5 29% Be Afraid (2017) While I didn't love Be Afraid - it retreads a lot of overly-familiar ground - I liked it. It's worth a look, especially if you're partial to horror nightmares.‐ Dread Central

3.5/5 73% The Blackcoat's Daughter (February) (2017) While The Blackcoat's Daughter is intriguing and seductive at the start, in the end it doesn't quite live up to the insinuations it made in the beginning.‐ Dread Central

4/5 67% Annabelle: Creation (2017) It's definitely a worthy entry -- if not one of the best -- in the Conjuring universe of horror... Annabelle: Creation should be seen late at night, in the dark.‐ Dread Central

3.5/5 54% 47 Meters Down (2017) While the movie is not perfect ... 47 Meters Down should please folks who want to see a suspenseful, simple story about survival against all odds.‐ Dread Central

3/5 29% Camera Obscura (2017) Camera Obscura is more psychological thriller than horror -- in fact, it's not scary at all but there are enough moments of suspense and mystery to make it worth your while.‐ Dread Central

3/5 16% The Mummy (2017) The Mummy is overall a fun movie, doing what it says it's going to do: mildly entertain. But in the end, it's just "the meh-my."‐ Dread Central

3/5 88% It Comes At Night (2017) While there is an underlying existential anxiety to the whole thing, there's not enough pizzazz to either the visuals or the dialogue to make It Comes at Night worth going to see in the theater.‐ Dread Central

4.5/5 71% Alien: Covenant (2017) Alien: Covenant is cruel and scary - it's a hard R, and the suspense levels are off the charts. The monsters ... are believable and terrifying. ‐ Dread Central

85% Disneynature Born In China (2017) Just because the stories shown are tried and true doesn't mean they're any less spectacular or gripping.‐ Opeeqo

66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) Fate of the Furious is cinematic fast food but for action-oriented teens, gearheads, or those who are simply fans of the franchise, it's worth taking a spin.‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com

No Score Yet One of Us (2016) While it's a slow burn, One of Us does come to a fiery close, and at a tight 86 minutes it never wears out its welcome.‐ Dread Central

51% The Boss Baby (2017) Don't go in expecting another Finding Dory or Inside Out - it's no deeper than Boss Baby's razor-thin briefcase.‐ Opeeqo

100% Everlasting (2016) Everlasting tells a compelling story with beautiful visuals.‐ Fantastica Daily
Read More | Posted Mar 28, 2017
4/5 53% The Belko Experiment (2017) There's an interesting cross-section of codes of morality and rationale from the various unwilling participants in the experiment, proving plenty of food for thought and a few things to discuss with friends (and coworkers) after the end credits fade.‐ Dread Central

35% The Great Wall (2017) The Great Wall proudly presents a barrage of battles you might want to see for the 3D... but there is nothing scary or striking about the movie itself.‐ Dread Central

100% Roger Corman's Death Race 2050 (2016) If you're a fan of the original 1975 movie, you will appreciate the gung-ho spirit with which Death Race 2050 is presented.‐ Dread Central

94% Arrival (2016) In the plus column, Arrival feels like a dreamily updated version of 1951's The Day the Earth Stood Still. On the negative side, there's not enough excitement or revelation to justify its two-hour runtime. ‐ Dread Central

4/5 No Score Yet The Butterfly Room (2014) If you're in search of an original horror film, and you are a fan of the slower, more hypnotic horror of the 70s - and you don't mind a lack of blood and guts - then The Butterfly Room is definitely one for your collection.‐ Dread Central

43% The Girl on the Train (2016) The Girl on the Train review says it misses the boat by not embracing the over-the-top potboiler parody it could have been, instead opting for Lifetime movie-of-the week blandness.‐ AtHomeInHollywood.com
