Leatherface (2017) - Movie ReviewIn one of the better scenes of Leatherface, a superfluous prequel to Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a young couple comes across what appears to be some sort of rotting animal along a lonely stretch of road.  The girl (Lorina Kamburova) gets out of the truck ...

Don't Sleep - Movie ReviewAwful.  Just awful.  And, truly, it didn’t need to be this way.  Don’t Sleep is, at its core, an intelligent idea for a new horror story.  I won’t and can’t fault writer/director Rick Bieber for being somewhat creative there.  A boy facing the darker aspects of his soul all too soon  ...

Happy Death Day - Movie ReviewHappy Death Day should have been good. Groundhog Day redone as a teen slasher horror? Are you kidding me? Count me in! The opportunity to watch a miserable prig of a person on the receiving end of the perfect comeuppance... over and over. A circular loop of bloody ...

78/52 - Movie ReviewThe woman in the center of the camera’s frame has just made a decision.  She is going to return the money she stole.  Satisfied, she picots away from the desk and walks into the bathroom.  It is a clean, white place.  The bathrooms in Alfred Hitchcock’s movies are  ...

Happy Hunting - Movie Review“Tradition.  Without it, we are nothing,” suggests Sheriff Burnside (Gary Sturm) as he stands in front of his ragged townsfolk, delivering words he’s not had to change in over a decade.   And they nod with approval.  A man is nothing without deed to back up his words and ...

American Made - Movie ReviewAs stylish and dirty as it is devilishly witty, the biting satire American Made takes an unbelievably insane event, mixes in equal parts deft direction and imaginative storytelling – with a healthy dose of Tom Cruise at his best – to make one of the season’s most surprisingly ...

Battle of the Sexes - Movie ReviewWith the women’s lib movement, the Roe v. Wade ruling, the passage of Title IX, and Congressional ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment roiling in the background of 1973, a different event managed to step forward and garner the bulk of the American public’s (and world’s) attention ...

Different Flowers - Movie ReviewThe white wedding dress. The fake eyelashes. The suffocating mother. The orchestra. And the guests.  All those guests and they are waiting – expecting even – a beautiful, flower-lined ceremony featuring a union between a bride and a groom.  But that’s not going to happen.  Even ...

Welcome to Willits (2017) - Movie ReviewDrugs are bad, mkay?  Especially when your particular drug of choice (and in the case of this movie it’s meth) causes a severe hallucination in which you mistake a bunch of teenagers for invading aliens and then go about picking them off of your pot farm one by one.  Damn, stupid meddling ...

Friend Request - Movie ReviewWhat’s the worst thing that could happen to a young student attending college in today’s social media-soaked world? A failing grade? Sleeping through an important exam? How about attending class in underwear? If we’re to buy what Friend Request is selling, the  ...
