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 Invitation Guest Review
When I graduated high school, I promised myself that by the time my ten-year reunion rolled around, I would gladly accept the invite just so I could show up and brag about the high profiled life I imagined for myself.

Well, that pretty much sums up my experience watching Alejandro Amenábar’s clumsy and ill-conceived supernatural thriller Regression. Before the hate rolls in, I must admit several things: I love Alejandro Amenábar, Emma Watson is my hero, and I think Ethan Hawke is a [...]
The name Uwe Boll has been one that I’ve been hearing and reading about for years. Aside from one or two entries from his filmography, it seems that I’ve managed to steer clear of all of his work. With the recent re-release of two of his films on DVD, I finally can cross another one of his projects off of the proverbial list.
