Unfriended: Dark Web (Fantasia 2018 review)

PLOT: Online game night for a group of friends turns into a nightmare when one of them connects to the group chat via a stolen laptop. REVIEW: It’s fitting that UNFRIENDED: DARK WEB got a sneak peak at this year’s Fantasia Film Festival, as this Montreal genre institution is where the first film, UNFRIENDED (then titled CYBERNATURAL) got its world premiere and was acquired...

Nightmare Cinema (Fantasia Review)

PLOT: Five lost souls wander into an abandoned movie theater run by a ghoulish projectionist (Mickey Rourke) who presents them with terrifying visions of their inevitable damnation. REVIEW: NIGHTMARE CINEMA will no doubt be a welcome treat for fans of the late “Masters of Horror”, with mastermind Mick Garris assembling leading genre voices for this anthology, very much in the...

TV Review: Ash vs Evil Dead: Series Finale Review

Season 3, Episode 10: The Mettle of Man SUMMARY: Ash (Bruce Campbell) tries to end his battle with evil once and for all. REVIEW: Well, that’s all folks. After three seasons, and thirty episodes, one of the greatest fanboy wish fulfillment experiments ever comes to an end. It was fun while it lasted. Certainly, no one will ever mistake “Ash Vs. Evil Dead” for one of...

TV Review: Ash vs Evil Dead: Season 3 - Episode 8

Season 3, Episode 8: Rifting Apart SUMMARY: Ash (Bruce Campbell)and Pablo (Ray Santiago) come up with a bonkers plan to save Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) and Brandy (Arielle Carver-O'Neill). REVIEW: Well, that didn’t take long. I predicted last week that Brandy’s “death” wasn’t gonna last, as Ash was just too damn bummed, and who wants to see an “Ash vs Evil Dead” where...

TV Review: Ash vs Evil Dead: Season 3 - Episode 6 & 7

Season 3, Episode 6 & 7: SUMMARY: Ash (Bruce Campbell) and Brandy grow closer, while Ruby hatches her most diabolical plan yet. REVIEW: First off - I apologize for missing last week’s review. I got caught up with the holidays, and actually didn’t realize Starz was airing an episode anyway. But I digress. Now that we’re a little over half-way into what I’m afraid...

TV Review: Ash vs Evil Dead: Season 3 - Episode 5

Season 3, Episode 5: Baby Proof SUMMARY: Ash's (Bruce Campbell) trip to Ruby's lair puts him in the crosshairs of his latest bundle of joy. REVIEW: One of the things I’m liking about “Ash vs Evil Dead” season three is how contained it is. We’re about halfway through the season now, and everything up to this point really does feel like half a story without too...

TV Review: Ash vs Evil Dead: Season 3 - Episode 4

Season 3, Episode 4: Unfinished Business SUMMARY: Ash's (Bruce Campbell) dead father (Lee Majors) returns from the grave to help his son find the missing pages of the Necronomicon. REVIEW: After three weeks of inspired lunacy, "Ash Vs Evil Dead" finally slows down a bit this week for a so-so episode that would feel like filler, were it not for the pitch-perfect...

TV Review: Ash vs Evil Dead: Season 3 - Episode 3

Season 3, Episode 3: Apparently Dead SUMMARY: Ash (Bruce Campbell) tries to bond with Brandy (Arielle Carver-O’Neill), getting some help from an unexpected place - his dead father (Lee Majors). REVIEW: You have to give “Ash Vs. Evil Dead” credit. It could go the easy route and just do the same thing season after season, but they’ve never been that lazy. Season...

TV Review: Ash Vs. Evil Dead - Season 3, Episode 1 & 2

Check out this double-bill review of the first two episodes of “Ash Vs. Evil Dead”, season three. Warning – SPOILERS! Season 3, Episode 1: Family SUMMARY: When the Necronomicon is dug up, Ash (Bruce Campbell) once again has to fight an army of Deadites, but now it turns out he also has a long-lost daughter. REVIEW: Ash vs Evil Dead has gone on a lot...

Death Wish (Movie Review)

PLOT: After a home invasion leaves his wife dead and his daughter in a coma, a mild-mannered surgeon, Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) takes the law into his own hands, and begins murdering criminals. REVIEW: DEATH WISH is no doubt a politically loaded film. Poorly timed in the wake of the Parkland shooting, and renewed national debate on gun ownership, Eli Roth’s remake of Michael...

Mohawk (Movie Review)

THIS REVIEW ORIGINALLY RAN AS PART OF OUR FANTASIA 2017 COVERAGE PLOT: During the war of 1812, a young Mohawk woman (Kaniehtiio Horn) and her two lovers, a fellow Mohawk, Calvin (Justin Rain) and English Indian agent, Joshua (Eamon Farren) battle a squad of bloodthirsty American soldiers.

Assassination Nation (Sundance Review)

PLOT: The citizens of a small town collectively lose their minds after a hacker leaks all their cell-phone data online. Desperate, fourteen girls become the target of the enraged town due to flimsy evidence linking them to the crime. REVIEW: ASSASSINATION NATION is a film seemingly made for the #metoo movement. A timely tale of teen girls taking on a town-full of misogynists, it...
