10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)
"Emelie isn't doing anything we haven't seen before, but it proves that a solid screenplay and director, as well as dead-on casting can produce a gem of a movie that is more than worthy of a viewing on your Friday or Saturday night. "
"Under the Shadow has everything that makes great horror: a unique mythology that plagues us psychologically as well as viscerally, a confined setting (in this case culturally mandated confinement as well as physical) and good old scary monsters. "
Yoga Hosers (2016)
Swiss Army Man (2016)
"This is what I love movies for. When I hear an outrageous, bizarre idea, I want to see how that director pulls it off. If you feel the Daniels didn't, then that's fair but the premise alone shouldn't be a turnoff. "
Trash Fire ()
The Revenant (2015)
Some Kind of Hate (2015)
"Amidst all the flashes of gore and rage, Some Kind of Hate fails to deliver on an emotional level. It's an interesting film for sure, but without a connection to the characters, it's tough for the horror and drama to make an impact. "
The Invitation (2016)
"A wicked little film about family ties and the painful constraints of memory. What starts out as a devilish family drama between two sisters transforms into a mad grasp for desperate companionship on one side and straight up survival on the other. "
The Boy (2015)
"Truly gets under the skin and festers. It can feel arduous at times, almost aimless, but by the time the climax kicks in, the deliberate pace and disconnect from backstory fully reveal the terrifying impact of mommy's little monster. "
13 Cameras (2016)
Office (Hua li shang ban zu) (2015)
"Both the tedious and vicious backstabbing aspects of office politics are used as a springboard for a film that teeters between an office drama and a straight-up slasher that gets a bit garbled at the end. "
"While it may not have had the biggest budget (or one at all), Ojuju is an entertaining film that makes due with slim resources. The story treads some familiar territory, but placing it in cultural context makes it more fresh and vital. "
The Curse of Downers Grove (2015)
Night Fare ()
"Night Fare begins to take itself painfully seriously and humorless. All the fun and excitement is drained out of the film as hefty moralization and a left-field mythological twist take center stage. "
Dude Bro Party Massacre III (2015)
The Stranger (2015)
Big Game (2015)
Let Us Prey (2015)
Cockneys vs Zombies (2013)
"The film maintains a tongue-in-cheek attitude throughout and never tries to be more than it is: an excuse to graphically exterminate masses of the undead. With plenty of colorful Cockney language mixed in, of course. "
