Leatherface (Movie Review)

PLOT: In Texas from 1955 to 1965, we witness the inherently violent growing pains of young Jed Sawyer, aka Leatherface. REVIEW: The curse of a first film can be a very real thing. At least, a first successful one. The late great Tobe Hooperís grittily unvarnished, intense sensory-blitz of a quasi-snuff film, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, ascended to a level of infamy the...

The Babysitter (Movie Review)

PLOT: A teenager learns a frightening truth about his otherwise awesome babysitter when she invites some friends over one night. REVIEW: About four minutes into THE BABYSITTER, I was sure I was going to hate it. Right off the bat, the movie exudes an aura of thinking it's too cool; it uses snippets from about five different pop songs in its first couple of scenes, unnecessary...

Happy Death Day (Movie Review)

PLOT: A college student is forced to relive the day of her own murder over and over until she can solve the identity of her killer. REVIEW: Of course it's a bit silly to analyze a movie like HAPPY DEATH DAY too strongly; to criticize it for being "juvenile" and "ridiculous" is to miss the point that it's just supposed to be escapist fun. For a little while, I was able to take...

Blade Runner 2049 (Movie Review)

PLOT: In 2049 Los Angeles, a blade runner - a hunter of rogue androids - discovers a mystery that may unlock the key to his own past and future. REVIEW: Clearly the one question that will never get old in the world of sci-fi is, "Do androids dream of electric sheep?" The concept of artificial intelligence having thoughts and feelings is a mainstay in the genre; people are...

The Crucifixion (Movie Review)

PLOT:  When a priest is jailed for the murder of a nun on whom he was performing an exorcism, an investigative journalist strives to determine whether he, in fact, murdered a mentally ill person, or if he lost the battle with a demonic presence. REVIEW: Let me just get this out of the way right off the bat: I am a not a big fan of the exorcism sub-genre of horror. Sure...

Dementia 13 (Movie Review)

PLOT: When a wealthy family reunites at an isolated castle estate to mourn the death of a child, each member must also reckon with a vengeful ghost, an axe-murderer and a trove of long-buried secrets. REVIEW: Raise your hand if you’ve ever seen Francis Ford Coppola’s 1963 “debut” film DEMENTIA 13? Now hoist your hand even higher if you were clamoring...

Let the Corpses Tan (Fantastic Fest Review)

PLOT: A group of criminals encounter a pair of dogged police officers after pulling off a daring gold heist somewhere along the Mediterranean coast. REVIEW: LET THE CORPSES TAN is a movie that is meant for the eyes and ears, not the heart. That is to say, its true purpose is to dominate us with visual stimulants and aural overload, and little is given to us in the way of...

Incontrol (Movie Review)

PLOT : A group of college-age kids†discover a device that projects their consciousness into the minds of others. REVIEW : In concept, writer/director Kurtis David Harder's sci-fi thriller INCONTROL reminded me of STRANGE DAYS, the 1995 Kathryn Bigelow-directed, James Cameron-scripted film that involved a device called SQUID, which would record a person's life experiences directly...

Gerald's Game (Fantastic Fest Review)

PLOT: A husband and wife's plan to spice up their marriage by handcuffing her to the bed goes horribly awry when he dies of a heart attack, leaving her chained up with no help in sight. REVIEW: On the surface, the plot of GERALD'S GAME seems like something that could be made in a cheap and tawdry way. Plenty of horror storytellers could craft this simple log-line: A woman is...

Haunters: The Art of the Scare (Fantastic Fest Review)

PLOT: A look inside the world of Halloween haunted houses, in particular "extreme haunts" that torment their guests to the breaking point. REVIEW: The truth is creepier than fiction in HAUNTERS, an unexpectedly fascinating and unnerving documentary revolving around the strange phenomenon of extreme haunted houses in America. Itís not often I see a documentary that makes me...
