Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant (2009) Todd Gilchrist teenybopper fiction brought to life on the big screen, realized as the first installment in a potential franchise that fails to offer reasons why mainstream audiences will want to follow it any further. EDIT

The House of the Devil (2009) Todd Gilchrist A virtual refutation of all of the conventions of contemporary horror that manages to be terrifying precisely because it refuses to give you that gratification until you've almost given up wanting it. EDIT

A+ The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) Todd Gilchrist A film with the epic scope of a crowd-pleaser but the subtlety of an introspective character study, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is at once intimate and sweeping, and one of the year's very best films. EDIT
