Oculus Review: Malevolent Mirror Makes Mayhem

Oculus Review: Malevolent Mirror Makes Mayhem

Oculus is definitely worth seeing. What it lacks in scares it makes up for with a mind-bending story and realistic, grotesque body horror. »

Curse of Chucky Review: There’s Life in the Old Doll Yet

Curse of Chucky Review: There’s Life in the Old Doll Yet

Curse of Chucky is at once a reboot and the sixth film in the series, and I would've totally gone to the theater to see it. Director Don Mancini has never left Chucky's world and it shows in the way the movie winds Chucky's past and present together into a (mostly) coherent story. »

Insidious 2 Review: Explores the Further but Forgets to Scare

Insidious 2 Review: Explores the Further but Forgets to Scare

Insidious 2 is reminiscent of The Shining but has enough unique elements to stand on its own, as long as you’ve seen the first one. »

Paranoia Review: A Zero Thrills Techno-Thriller

Paranoia Review: A Zero Thrills Techno-Thriller

Paranoia is supposed to be a Techno-Thriller, but the only plotline that goes anywhere is the forced romance between Liam Hemsworth and Amber Heard. »

The To Do List Review: Sexy Fun at the Pool

The To Do List Review: Sexy Fun at the Pool

There are tons of really funny moments in The To Do List. Some are crude and gross, others are just plain comedy gold. Through it all, Brandy's deadpan character never wavers for long, if at all, until one scene at the very end of the film and that makes it all worth it. »

Byzantium Review: Vampires Minus the V-Word

Byzantium Review: Vampires Minus the V-Word

Byzantium is different from other vampire movies in that no character ever actually uses the V-word to describe Clara, Eleanor or any of the other immortal characters. »

The Way Way Back Review: A Boy, a Girl and the Water Wizz

The Way Way Back Review: A Boy, a Girl and the Water Wizz

It's a testament to the strength of the performances that when the end of The Way Way Back came, I didn't want to say goodbye to the characters. »

The Conjuring Review: Scary Dolls and Creepy Goings On at the Farmhouse

The Conjuring Review: Scary Dolls and Creepy Goings On at the Farmhouse

I didn't find The Conjuring to be a terrifying film, though there were excellent moments of high tension and some very creepy scenes. It's worth a look if you're into horror movies, but watch the dark alleys when you come out. You never know where Annabelle might be lurking . . . »

RIPD Review: Dead on Arrival

RIPD Review: Dead on Arrival

RIPD isn't a bad film, but it's not a great one either. There's nothing really cool or inventive about it. »

Pacific Rim Review: Kaiju Smackdown!

Pacific Rim Review: Kaiju Smackdown!

Pacific Rim is a both a homage to the old Kaiju movies and an update of them as well. If you're old enough, it’ll definitely bring back good memories of watching Godzilla or Gamera crush cities under their rubber feet on TV. And if you're not, well Pacific Rim is a good place to start. »
