Movie trailers generally do a pretty good job of letting an audience know what they are in for. There are those rare instances, however, where you watch a trailer and still have no idea what a film is about. That is the exact experience I had with Matthew Holness’ Possum.
A disgraced children’s puppeteer is haunted by secrets and his very own puppet, after returning to his childhood home where his stepfather still resides.
The Dark Review

Is Carson Mell’s supernatural comedy, Another Evil, one of the successful ones? Read on to find out. [...]
Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer Review
In my recent review of Don Coscarelli’s Phantasm, I made mention of the fact that I couldn’t quite comprehend what all of the fuss over the film was really about. By the end of my second viewing, I had more of a grasp on it, but still wasn’t quite there. Another film that had the same effect on me upon my first viewing was John McNaughton’s 1986 film, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. This second viewing, however, [...]
One of the largest concerns on the minds of people these days seems to be the same worldwide. No matter where you live or what your current situation may be, I feel as though it is always on our minds, at least to some degree. What I’m referring to is financial security. You have a great paying job, a beautiful home, and everything you ever dreamed of having, but what happens if that is all taken away overnight? You lose [...]
