[REC] 3: Genesis

The Apparition
Star Rating:         The ads for The Apparition tell us it’s about how believing in supernatural events can make them real. The finished film, on the other hand, never …

Prometheus
Star Rating:         Fundamentally, Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is about the search for truth and meaning. Under the guise of a 3D science fiction thriller, it begs most …

Piranha 3DD

Silent House
Star Rating:         For the first hour or so if it’s highly publicized eighty-eight minutes, Silent House had me hook, line, and sinker. But then I reached the climactic …

The Woman in Black
Star Rating:         An early twentieth century setting. English marshland shrouded in fog. Rain, thunder, and lightning.  A graveyard shrouded in ivy and dead twigs. …

The Innkeepers
Star Rating:         I’ve noticed that when a filmmaker has the temerity to develop horror movie characters beyond what would be required of them in slashers, which …

Underworld: Awakening
Star Rating:         The fact that I liked Underworld: Awakening says more about me than it does about the filmmakers. I have to admit that up front, for I want you to read …

The Darkest Hour (2011)
Star Rating:         If you require a reason to see The Darkest Hour, the best I can offer you is that it isn’t as bad as last year’s Skyline. But that doesn’t …
reviewed Carnage. December 17, 2011
posted in Movie Hype
Star Rating:         There are many moments in Roman Polanski’s Carnage that elicited laughter from me, but that doesn’t mean that I found it funny. If anything, …

The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence)
Star Rating:         I detested The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence), and yet I’m well aware that it was made with me in mind – me and anyone else who thought …

11-11-11
Star Rating:         11-11-11 is a horror movie about a writer plagued by ominous visions, supernatural encounters, and repeated exposure to the number eleven. This would …

Paranormal Activity 3
Star Rating:         The first movie scared the living hell out of me. The second movie, not so much. We’ve now reached the third movie, and while I maintain that horror …
reviewed The Thing (2011 film). October 15, 2011
posted in Movie Hype
The Thing
Star Rating:         Despite sharing the exact same title, The Thing is not a remake of John Carpenter’s 1982 film. Nor, for that matter, is it related to Howard Hawks’ …

Fright Night (2011 remake)
Star Rating:         It’s fashionable to bemoan the tragic life of a vampire, as recent films such as Let Me In and the Twilight saga have so clearly demonstrated. …

Final Destination 5

The Ward
Star Rating:         It would be unfair of me to say which psychological thriller John Carpenter’s The Ward rips off, for knowing even that tiny bit of information …

Priest (2011 film)
Star Rating:         Priest, based on the graphic novel by Min-woo Hyung, is a fun and stylish 3D adventure, one that artfully blends horror, science fiction, action, and …

Dylan Dog: Dead of Night
Star Rating:         Dylan Dog: Dead of Night is one of those movies that must have sounded great on paper – a horror comedy about a private detective whose clients …
reviewed Scream 4. April 16, 2011
posted in Movie Hype
Scream 4
Star Rating:         Cleverness is a double-edged sword, and Kevin Williamson doesn’t seem to understand this. On the one hand, his screenplay for Scream 4 is rife …
reviewed Insidious. April 02, 2011
posted in Movie Hype
Insidious
Star Rating:         The interesting thing about Insidious is that it’s very good at being completely unoriginal. In their third collaboration, director James Wan and …

The Rite
Star Rating:         There are the possession movies that are really about nothing more than possession. You know these kinds of movies. They exist primarily for the late …

Paranormal Activity 2
If we don't find ourselves as scared as we did a year ago, it's because, this time around, we know exactly what to expect. There will be phantom thuds. There will be objects that move on their …

Psycho (Universal Home Entertainment's 2-disc Legacy Series Special Edition DVD)
When “Psycho” was first released in 1960, director Alfred Hitchcock took great pains to ensure the plot would remain unspoiled. He wouldn’t allow stars Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh …
reviewed Let Me In. October 21, 2010
posted in Movie Hype
Let Me In
“Let Me In” is every bit as unnerving, absorbing, tragic, touching, and compelling as “Let the Right One In,” the 2008 Swedish horror film on which it’s based. This is remarkable …

25th Anniversary Special Edition DVD (front)
I was ten years old when I first saw “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” at home. Those were the days of VHS, and I didn’t have access to the commercial version sold in stores. I instead …
reviewed Chain Letter. October 10, 2010
posted in Movie Hype
Chain Letter
“Chain Letter” is a teen slasher film founded on a premise so woefully thin, so painfully underdeveloped, and so poorly executed, it’s as if the filmmakers went ahead with only an idea …

The Last Exorcism
"If you believe in God," says Reverend Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian), "then you must believe in the Devil." This eternal clash between good and evil is the backbone of Christian faith, …

Piranha 3-D (2010)
Back when James Cameron's "Avatar" was released, there was a lot of talk about the future of 3-D movies - about how much better the process had become with high definition cameras, about how they didn't …

George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead (Two-Disc Ultimate Undead Edition)
With George A. Romero, it's always about social critique. "Night of the Living Dead," released at the closing of the 1960s, examined the horrors of war - specifically the Cold War and Vietnam - and the …

Nightmare on Elm Street Poster
I have to give the people behind "A Nightmare on Elm Street" credit for avoiding two mistakes that easily could have been made. Firstly, they did not try to make it a parody, which is more than I can …

The Reeds (2009)
"The Reeds" is a hopelessly confusing mess, a horror film that knows neither the story it wants to tell nor how it wants to tell it. While many scary and bloody things happen all throughout, and while …

The Final (2010)
We've all had moments, I'm sure, when we wish we could get back at those who picked on us in high school. That doesn't mean there's an excuse for movies like "The Final." This is an ugly, cruel, sadistic, …

The Crazies (2010)
I suppose I can't fault "The Crazies" for delivering exactly what it promised: Screaming victims, bloody deaths, scary things hiding in the dark, and, of course, crazy people. But there really isn't anything …

Frozen (movie)
We've seen so many thrillers in which the threat comes from something unnatural, be it a ghost, a zombie, or a masked serial killer that cannot himself be killed. This is partly why "Frozen" is such a …
reviewed Shutter Island (movie). February 19, 2010
Shutter Island
Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island" is not an easy film to define. It's simplest to say that it's an experience - suspenseful, taut, brooding, mysterious, and engrossing from the moment the first shot …
reviewed The Wolfman. February 18, 2010
The Wolfman
Atmospherically, "The Wolfman" is spot on, which means there are a lot of behind-the-scenes people to thank. Let's start with Rick Heinrichs, the production designer; his sets evoke a gothic style that …

LEGION
God has lost faith in humanity, something that hasn't happened since the days of Noah. But instead of a flood, He has sent down a legion of angels, who possess the bodies of weak-minded people, turning …
