Us (2019)Part home invasion thriller, part horror, and part social commentary, the only thing more impressive than the number of genre elements at play in Jordan Peele’s newest film, Us, is the total body count. Well, that and the incredible attention to detail the filmmaker pays to every  ...

Captive State (2019)Like the trojan horse at the heart of its central allusion, Captive State isn’t what it initially appears to be.

Psychological thrillers don't get any more disturbing than what goes down in the four walls of The Mafu Cage! Ellen (Lee Grant) just can’t escape her sister, Cissy, but, boy, would she love to be rid of her.  It might just take a tribal ceremony to get it done, too! ...

The Natural (1984)

The Peace Killers (1971)

It’s the fuzz tones, man.  It’s all about the fuzz! What would you do if a producer came up to you and your cousin and said he’d give you $100,000 to make a movie, but it had to be a biker flick and it had to be R-rated?  You’d make that damn movie, of course.  Thus ...

Night School (2019The trailers for Night School looked so promising. With talented comic actors like Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip) and Kevin Hart, how could they go wrong?

Greta (2019) - MovieThere’s a delicious element of B-movie camp that snakes its way through the frames of director Neil Jordan’s new film called Greta. Jordan knows he has crafted a technically astute psychological thriller with tinges of Hitchcock and Fincher. But the moments where he  ...

Happy Death Day 2U

Beware! The Baby Mask Killer is back. If 2017’s surprise time-loop slasher Happy Death Day was rightfully called a mash-up of Groundhog Day and Scream, then its follow-up, Happy Death Day 2U can be called a strange combination of Weird Science, The Butterfly Effect ...

Sixten Candles (1984)

The Kid Who WOuld Be King - Blu-rayFace it, you didn’t go see this film when it was released. The advertisements didn’t sell it well enough, did they?
