Review – I Trapped The Devil (2019)

You’ve likely seen a movie that was so similar to another that the similarities bothered you though what do you do about a movie that is so similar to another that it feels like plagiarism? That’s the problem I encountered with Josh Lobo’sI Trapped The Devil. It works as a thriller about a man who […]

The Abandoned – Review

  The Abandoned is a pretty decent horror movie, though you have to be patient with it because the ending isn’t exactly the culmination of everything that came before. I don’t mean to imply that it’s badly made–it’s not–but it rewards you for paying attention. And I have to mention the movie’s cinematographer, Zach Galler, […]

The Abandoned – Trailer

“It’s an unfinished section.  They told us not to go down there.”  Says Cooper (Jason Patric) in the trailer for Eytan Rockaway’s The Abandoned.

‘Boyhood’ Review

  Boyhood Is A Fascinating Movie More Because Of How It Was Made, Than The Movie Itself I just saw Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, and it was pretty interesting, though mostly on the technical level (it was filmed over a period of 12 years); as an exercise in innovative filmmaking.  As a movie meant to engage an audience, it’s way […]

‘The Damned’ Trailer

When I see that a movie is from IFC Midnight I take it as a given that it’s going to be well done.  As far as I know, they don’t actually make any of the movies that bear their name, though what they do do is almost as important, which is to purchase quality horror […]
