Trailer Into REaction – 6 Underground (2019): Visit Italy | Trailer

Michael Bay isn’t what I call a subtle director, and nothing about the ‘Visit Italy’ trailer for his upcoming 6 Underground indicates that that’s a mistaken impression. And that’s the problem because–at least for me–Bay being Bay isn’t terribly interesting. What is is that he’s working with Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick (Zombieland, Deadpool, Deadpool 2) […]

REview- Shadow (2018)

Yimou Zhang’s Shadow is a remarkable bit of filmmaking. The movie revolves around two kingdoms on the precipice of war, and the political intrigues that come about. That doesn’t sound like much, but as executed by Zhang, it’s pretty remarkable stuff. And did I mention the entire movie is rendered in shades of white, black […]

REview – Polaroid (2019)

I went into Lars Klevberg’s Polaroid with relatively high expectations and, for the most part, they were squandered. It’s not by any means a terrible movie but is filled with so many questionable decisions–such as the blue tint much of the movie seems filmed in or the way characters all seemed to live in homes […]

REview – Wendigo (2001)

I suspect the admiration I feel for Larry Fessenden’s Wendigo is all out of proportion to the movie itself, but he could have easily taken the “easy” way out–monster turns up, slaughters a whole bunch of people, the end–and that’s not necessarily always a bad thing, but no matter how well it’s done it’s also […]

REview – Countdown (2019)

To be totally honest I went into Countdown not expecting much. I was unfamiliar with Justin Dec as a director and the storyline sounded like warmed over Final Destination. And to be fair there’re some similarities between the two movies but Countdown approaches the subject from a novel enough angle that it doesn’t feel like […]

REview – Willow Creek (2013)

Found footage is a genre that every since The Blair Witch Project–though that was not the first. That honor likely belongs to The McPherson Tape–many have attempted, but few have done particularly well. Paranormal Activity was fine though prior entries in that series quickly wore out their welcome, which is one reason you should see […]

REview – Eli (2019)

Ciarán Foy’s Eli is a surprise because Netflix is at best uneven as far as their horror offerings go. In other words, for every The Haunting Of Hill House there’s at least three Hemlock Groves. Luckily Eli is closer to the former than the latter. Foy has a faculty for directing younger people, and Eli […]
