Last Girl Standing Review
All [good] slasher movies have them. The them I’m referring to is, of course, the sole survivor, the last one left, the final girl. The trope of the ‘final girl’ has been explored more deeply in recent years with films like Final Girl and The Final Girls, both appropriately named, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t more to be done with the idea. That’s exactly what director Ben Moody wanted to show us horror fans with his feature film, [...]
Sometimes the films that depict events that can actually happen are more horrifying than the most gory of underground horror cinema. They may not be as grisly or anywhere near as explicit, but real-life events can cause real-life emotions from viewers. Thus is the case with Jamie M. Dagg’s crime thriller, River.
American doctor, John Lake (Rossif Sutherland, Hellions), is taking a much-needed holiday from his clinic in southern Laos. After an alcohol-filled night leads him to intervene [...]
Artsploitation Films has a knack for releasing some very interesting films, many of which I would never even hear about if it weren’t for the indie studio’s distribution. There are plenty of films in the catalog I have yet to see, but the ones I have had the pleasure of viewing have all been entertaining in their own unique way. While it isn’t my favorite of the bunch, Raphael Neal’s Fever is no different in its uniqueness and originality.
Child 44 Review
I’m not sure what the determining factor is when it comes to which films end up shown in movie theaters around the world or just receive home releases, but it is my fear that there are tons of brilliant movies that are going unnoticed by the general public. One of the latest of these brilliant pieces is Daniel Espinosa’s drama thriller, Child 44.
After refusing to denounce his wife, Raisa (Noomi Rapace, Prometheus), as a traitor, secret agent [...]
I never thought I’d see the day that one of the greatest action stars of all time would be featured in a zombie film. Sure, we’ve seen the likes of Brad Pitt in virus/outbreak/zombie movies, but seeing the former Governator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, in Henry Hobson’s Maggie has blown me away.
Marguerite (Abigail Breslin) is one of the many suffering from the necroambulist virus that has been spreading like wildfire across the states. After two weeks of searching for her, [...]
The Squeeze Review
Oddly enough, it seems that almost everyone I talk to in my hometown of Thornwood, NY and its surrounding areas is interested in the sport of golf in one way or another. They either watch it on TV, go to watch live tournaments, personally know someone who plays the game, or play it themselves. Personally, I was never interested in it and don’t see myself becoming interested any time soon. Because of this, when it comes to films about golf, [...]
U Turn Review
I don’t know how I was churning out three reviews a day at one point. These days, it’s hard enough for me to find the time to sit through one movie, let alone three. Either way, I’m back with another review, this time it is for Oliver Stone’s star-studded crime thriller, U Turn.
Bobby Cooper (Sean Penn) is on his way to Vegas to pay off a large debt to a very dangerous man, when his car breaks down. [...]
I’ve been a fan of Alexandre Aja ever since my first viewing of his 2003 film High Tension. Since that release, he had directed four more full-length films and I’ve made it a point to watch every single one of them. There is no doubt he does fabulous work with every project and his newest film, Horns, is no different.
Ignatius Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe, Harry Potter series) is suspected of killing his former girlfriend, Merrin (Juno Temple, Killer [...]
