4/5 PG: Psycho Goreman (2020) Sarah Musnicky It's not often that you find a film that's completely bonkers and wholesome all in one package. PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN has this in spades. EDIT

3/5 Promising Young Woman (2020) Shannon McGrew It's not that Promising Young Womanis bad, far from it. The issue is, when it had its moment to shine, to really stick it to the man (pun intended)... it didn't. EDIT

2/5 The Midnight Sky (2020) Sarah Musnicky Despite the film's stunning visuals and score, its failure to connect through its characters marks THE MIDNIGHT SKY dead upon arrival. EDIT
Posted Dec 9, 2020
6/10 I'm Your Woman (2020) Caitlin Kennedy I'm Your Woman has some truly wonderful parts that don't quite sum up into a wonderful whole. ... Honestly, it's worth the watch for the chance to experience Rachel Brosnahan's dramatic chops, even if it leaves much to be desired. EDIT

3.5/5 Anything for Jackson (2020) Shannon McGrew Anything for Jackson is charming and funny, yet creepy and unsettling, and though the ending didn't come entirely together for me I still had an absolute blast while watching it. EDIT

2.5/5 Godmothered (2020) Sarah Musnicky It's not reinventing the wheel, but GODMOTHERED is cute. Jillian Bell provides much needed life to a script bogged down by forced plot points. EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2020
4/5 Run (2020) Shannon McGrew With a stellar standout performance by [Kiera] Allen and an unforgettable performance by [Sarah] Paulson, Run is a film that will have you cheering for our heroine while trying to escape the terror of a deranged parent's love. EDIT

8/10 Happiest Season (2020) Caitlin Kennedy Happiest Season is a holiday comedy in the purest sense, but that doesn't make it shallow. The film's themes of heartache and fighting for acceptance and love hit hard ... a warm embrace in film form. Wickedly funny and relentlessly charming EDIT
Posted Nov 19, 2020

Posted Nov 16, 2020

Posted Nov 10, 2020
1.5/5 The Call (2020) Shannon McGrew The Call is a forgettable film that features a weak story and even weaker characters. Do yourself a favor and skip this film, it's one call you don't want to make. EDIT

2.5/5 Roald Dahl's The Witches (2020) Shannon McGrew The film has a lot of heart, it shows the power of family and those we choose to bring into our folds, but, in the end, it lacks the spark to make this a memorable film. EDIT
Posted Oct 21, 2020
3/5 Archenemy (2020) Shannon McGrew [Archenemy is] a gonzo sci-fi/superhero film that is injected with neon-infused violence and chaos. EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2020
7/10 Rebecca (2020) Sarah Musnicky Carried by the performances, production design, direction and more, Ben Wheatley's REBECCA has carved out its own memorable space for viewers to enjoy. EDIT

9/10 Nocturne (2020) Caitlin Kennedy Nocturne is a decadent feast for the viewer. Every element is a delicately assembled symphony and every movement of the film's narrative an intricate dance. An incredibly tense film that keeps you locked in and enchanted ... EDIT

Posted Oct 6, 2020
6/10 The Lie (2018) Caitlin Kennedy The Lie is elevated by an excellent cast and a sickeningly familiar premise, but cut down by its own attempt to shock and awe. EDIT
Posted Oct 6, 2020
4/5 Violation (2020) Shannon McGrew Violation may not be easy to watch because of the subject matter but it's a film that demands to be seen to better understand the horrific crimes that so many people experience at the hands of someone they love. EDIT

7/10 () Caitlin Kennedy Teddy takes everything you know about the werewolf movie and wraps it up in tragedy and romance befitting any great French film. With "retch out loud" body horror and a horrific climax, you can't help but squirm in your seat. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2020
3.5/10 The Secrets We Keep (2020) Sarah Musnicky While the cast delivers strong performances, THE SECRETS WE KEEP is weighed down by a script that leaves a lot to be desired. EDIT

4/10 The Babysitter: Killer Queen (2020) Caitlin Kennedy To sum up a lot of bad into a single statement: The Babysitter: Killer Queen is forced. ... The film does not work as a horror and it certainly doesn't work as a comedy. EDIT
