There's a terrific sense of menace in this gothic dramatic thriller, which plays on the story's fantasy elements to take us into a teen girl's troubled imagination. It's beautifully shot too.

Like the central character, it's difficult to convince ourselves that this sinister nastiness isn't really happening. So we get increasingly unnerved as the story progresses.

Good overall plot and production that do not come together in the sharp focus of a conventional horror film. Entertaining nonetheless.

Roiling with jealousy, suicide and latent lesbian urges, "The Moth Diaries" dances on the border between hallucination and reality without fully committing to either.

It offers glancing pleasures of the atmospheric kind - the impact is the equivalent of a filmy cobweb brushing against your cheek. It tickles more than it bites.

Bubbles of nascent arousal froth at the film's feminine surface.

Vamps-fans won't find much to gnaw on here.

I'd give this moth-eaten nonsense a miss.

May 24, 2013
A redundant teen-horror romp which, in the space of its slender running time, actually begins to make you pine for the return of Bella and Edward.

The lacklustre script is so determined to spell out thoughts and emotions that it becomes insulting.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 22, 2013
There's no mystery, suspense or intrigue. Worst of all, there are no real scares - though that may be due to the Young Adult market it's trying to tap into.

If you thought the Twilight films were hard to sit through, wait until you get a load of this toothless attempt to cash in on today's hormone-fuelled vampire craze.

"The Moth Diaries" just ends up feeling like a desperate attempt to cash in on the vampire craze created by "Twilight."

The Moth Diaries is an entirely bloodless vampire tale that takes itself way too seriously.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/10
September 4, 2012
Ostensibly made as an angst-filled teen horror movie in the vein of Twilight, it doesn't really have an idea of its own identity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Way too serious for its own good.

Those incredibly volatile days when a teenage girl comes to terms with her own family history, her changing friendships, her sexuality, and more make for interesting fiction but often come apart on their way to the big screen.

Sleeping Pill: The Movie

April 30, 2012
The problem with a movie this unimaginative and amorphous that tries to be ambiguous is that we're not sure how to take anything it shows us. Ambiguity becomes meaningless game-playing.
