Rating Title/Year Author
3.5/5 John Wick: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum (2019) William Bibbiani Had the potential to be one of the best action movies ever made. Instead, it's just super badass. (We should all have such problems.) EDIT

3/5 () Meagan Navarro Bliss feels like a companion piece to Near Dark by way of Abel Ferrara's The Driller Killer, in terms of maturity and extreme carnality that's simultaneously pastiche yet wholly Begos. EDIT

2/5 The Intruder (2019) Trace Thurman Based on the laughs heard in the audience, everyone thought this was a comedy. If only anyone involved with the film (besides Quaid, because he gets it) thought that too. EDIT

2.5/5 Knives and Skin (2019) Joe Lipsett Audacious in its experimental nature, when Knives and Skin works, it's wildly entertaining. Unfortunately the highs are too few...and the film's emphasis on style over narrative and character makes for a viewing experience that drags EDIT

3/5 () Patrick Bromley Like a wound that's infected and beginning to rot, so, too, do the friendships at the center of Harpoon. Unlike most arguments, though, this isn't going to be settled with just some heated words. The movie's not called Harpoon for nothing. EDIT

4/5 () Meagan Navarro Timpson's feature debut is impressive. It's not easy to mash together so many genres into one film and have it work, and the pitch-black comedy is what pushes this over from fun thriller to insane crowd-pleaser. EDIT

3.5/5 I Trapped the Devil (2019) Meagan Navarro A slow-burn tale of paranoia and familial obligation that does crawl out of the gate but crescendos in one satisfying ending. It may be small scaled in terms of setting and characters, but Lobo's debut is ambitious in effort . EDIT

Open 24 Hours (2018) Meredith Borders This is not a subtle movie, which works when we're talking gore, but works less when the film's trying to build suspense. EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2019
Possum (2018) Meredith Borders An ambitiously unpleasant and gorgeously stark film shot on 35mm. EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2019
Memory: The Origins of Alien (2019) Meredith Borders What makes MEMORY an absolutely crucial entry in the about-ALIEN canon is the way it lovingly demonstrates the alchemical creative process among O'Bannon, Scott and artist H.R. Giger. EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2019
The Lodge (2019) Meredith Borders Every choice in this film - every frame, every performance, every sound and edit - is crafted for utmost discomfort, making for a relentless onslaught of unease. EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2019
The Nightingale (2018) Meredith Borders It's a breathtaking success by a director who could have made anything after the success of her first horror feature, and who decided to make a bloody but contemplative period piece with no easy answers. EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2019
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) Meredith Borders Its distance from the woman whose story inspired the film keeps it from becoming something more substantial. EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2019
Relive (2019) Meredith Borders Relive is a high-concept thriller that wisely places its characters above its concept, and it works all the better for it. EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2019
Sweetheart (2019) Meredith Borders It's a beautiful and exhilarating film with an extraordinary leading performance and one hell of a big bad. EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2019
2/5 Thriller (2018) Meagan Navarro Thriller attempts to bring a new perspective to a tried and true horror sub-genre, but it ultimately feels as generic as its title. Those who are familiar with Prom Night will pick out the killer's identity straight away, and the plot beats drag. EDIT
Posted Apr 15, 2019
3.5/5 High Life (2018) Meagan Navarro Denis tries her hand at science fiction, but done in her naturalistic, heady style that trades high tech science in favor of exploring what deep space isolation can do on one's mental state. It's an arthouse meditation on time, death, and solitude. EDIT
Posted Apr 12, 2019
2.5/5 Hellboy (2019) Meagan Navarro This doesn't quite feel like the Hellboy we wanted, but it does feel like a throwback to anything goes '90s horror, complete with not so great CG and over the top monsters. A lot of them. Technically, it's a mess of a movie. EDIT
Posted Apr 12, 2019
4/5 Little Monsters (2019) Meredith Borders Amid all the gore and the silliness, the characters - not the gags - drive this story, and that's why it'll stay with audiences longer than the typical fun but forgettable zombie romp. EDIT
Posted Apr 1, 2019
2/5 Slaughterhouse Rulez (2018) Rafael Motamayor A heavy-handed political message, a glacial pace, and a lack of both horror and comedy prevent this one from actually ruling. EDIT
Posted Mar 21, 2019
3/5 The Curse of La Llorona (2019) Meagan Navarro Director Michael Chaves makes his feature debut with La Llorona, and effortlessly stakes a claim in his corner of this ever-expanding fright focused Conjuring universe. EDIT
Posted Mar 17, 2019
4.5/5 Pet Sematary (2019) Meagan Navarro Kolsch and Widmyer don't bother retreading the story we know and instead give us something far more satisfying. They give us a story so bone-chilling, so substantial, and even a little bit of humor to alleviate the brutal blow of abject terror. EDIT
Posted Mar 17, 2019
4.5/5 () Trace Thurman A near-perfect combination of body horror, cosmic horror and psychological horror that gets under your skin while also finding its way into your heart. EDIT
Posted Mar 15, 2019
3/5 Captive State (2019) Meagan Navarro For those looking for a fast-paced thriller that crafts an exhilarating, complicated web, Captive State has a lot to offer. If characters with satisfying arcs are more your style, well, it's best to sit this one out. EDIT
Posted Mar 15, 2019
2.5 () Meagan Navarro Overall, I See You is a frustrating experience. It's a great concept that's well produced and is anchored by a talented cast. But because the story's unique structure is given so much time and attention, everything else is diminished in the process. EDIT
Posted Mar 15, 2019
2/5 Tone Deaf (2018) Trace Thurman It's a disappointment, to say the least, especially when you know that Bates is capable of so much more. EDIT
Posted Mar 14, 2019
2.5/5 () Trace Thurman An unapologetic, gratuitously violent and sexual B-movie that aims to titillate and disgust. On those two fronts it succeeds, but it fails to amount to much more than that. EDIT
Posted Mar 12, 2019
2.5/5 () Meagan Navarro The talented and comedic actors bring these characters to life in a very human way that keeps you invested up until the third act. Then it spirals into over the top dramatic mess with a more convoluted than necessary reveal. EDIT
Posted Mar 12, 2019
3/5 Body at Brighton Rock (2019) Meagan Navarro Even with a simple narrative, Benjamin manipulates it for all that its worth in terms of spooky atmosphere, chilling moments of abject terror, and a tone that skillfully toggles between fun irreverence and uncomfortably dark. EDIT
Posted Mar 12, 2019
2.5/5 () Trace Thurman If you are a fan of 'The Woman' and want to see the story continued, then definitely give it a watch. Otherwise, there's just not much here to recommend. EDIT
Posted Mar 11, 2019
4/5 () Trace Thurman Villains is sick, twisted and absolutely bonkers. EDIT
Posted Mar 10, 2019
4/5 Us (2019) Trace Thurman Save for some familiar plot beats, Us proves that Peele is not a one-trick pony and can excellently craft a scare (or twenty). EDIT
Posted Mar 9, 2019
3/5 () Rafael Motamayor You will be rewarded to a bonkers and entertaining horror film, if you manage to sit through the dull first half hour. EDIT
Posted Feb 21, 2019
2.5/5 Wounds (2019) Rafael Motamayor Wounds will definitely gross you out, but there isn't enough meat in these bones to keep your interest through the millionth sight of a cockroach or jump scare at the sound of an incoming text. EDIT
Posted Feb 21, 2019
3/5 The Death of Dick Long (2019) Rafael Motamayor Rocky and uneven as it might be, The Death of Dick Long manages to lure you in with wacky characters and an interesting premise, and even if it loses you with its dull second act EDIT
Posted Feb 21, 2019
Jawbreaker (1999) Joe Lipsett ...there are two other reasons why the film has developed such a devoted fan base since its release two decades ago: the iconic costumes and Stein's gleefully acerbic script. EDIT
Posted Feb 20, 2019
3/5 Happy Death Day 2U (2019) Joe Lipsett The sequel is an admirable attempt to offer a new spin on a familiar tale that frequently works in the small moments, but horror audiences anticipating a second round of Baby Face will undoubtedly walk away disappointed. EDIT
Posted Feb 12, 2019
4.5/5 Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror (2019) Joe Lipsett Horror Noire is always entertaining, but more importantly, it is an opportunity to acknowledge and advance the narrative about the contributions of Black talent in front and behind the camera. EDIT
Posted Feb 7, 2019
3/5 The Prodigy (2019) Joe Lipsett It's a little too obvious and straightforward, but for fans of the subgenre or rubberneckers intrigued about the ending, it'll do the trick. EDIT
Posted Feb 6, 2019
3.5/5 I Am Mother (2019) Meredith Borders I Am Mother is the first feature film from director Grant Sputore, and it's quite an achievement, visually assured and compellingly paced. EDIT
Posted Feb 1, 2019
3.5/5 Alita: Battle Angel (2019) Meagan Navarro Rodriguez has crafted an entertaining showcase of visual storytelling that sucks you in as it zips through so many captivating set pieces. It's just light on plot and depth. EDIT
Posted Feb 1, 2019
4/5 The Wolf Hour (2019) Meredith Borders The Wolf Hour tells us that our art can lay us bare, leave us vulnerable, even hurt those around us - but it can also save us, cleanse us, give us the courage to leave the cages we've built for ourselves. EDIT
Posted Jan 28, 2019
3.5/5 Glass (2019) Joe Lipsett Glass is a polarizing film that combines the strengths and the weaknesses of its two predecessors in a not-altogether-successful hybrid. And yet...there's something fascinating and complex about it nonetheless. EDIT
Posted Jan 17, 2019
3/5 Just a Breath Away (Dans la brume) (2018) Meagan Navarro Roby has succeeded in crafting a well-executed story that feels grander than its budget, and the talented cast give their all even when limited by the script. It just doesn't offer much that we haven't already seen before. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2019
3.5/5 One Cut of the Dead (Kamera o tomeru na!) (2017) Meagan Navarro Shinichiro Ueda's zombie comedy is one that purposefully pretends to offer familiar zombie schlock only to rip the rug out from under us in an innovative, hilarious way. The level of detail is uncanny, and the comedy is equally matched by charm. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2019
3/5 May the Devil Take You (2018) Meagan Navarro It's not perfect and makes no attempts to disguise its influences, but this Raimi style spin on Satanic horror conjures up a devilishly fun midnight romp. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2019
3.5/5 Knuckleball (2018) Meagan Navarro Knuckeball is a well-executed thriller unafraid to embrace is violent darkness or put its child lead in peril. Brutal, bloody, and full of surprises, this one is a flawed but entertaining ride. EDIT
Posted Jan 10, 2019
3/5 Pledge (2018) Meagan Navarro For those that like their thrillers fast and warped, Pledge is an entertaining take on a familiar story. Partying, torture, death, and dark humor makes for a fun and sometimes gruesome watch. EDIT
Posted Jan 4, 2019
2.5/5 Escape Room (2019) Trace Thurman Watching a group of people you don't know playing a game that you aren't able to play turns out to be a rather amusing way to spend 100 minutes. EDIT
Posted Jan 3, 2019
4/5 Aterrados (2017) Meagan Navarro This nonstop barrage of scares and super creepy set pieces is the equivalent of venturing into a haunted house attraction. It doesn't offer much in the way of a fully fleshed out plot with concrete answers, but it doesn't need to. EDIT
