Review – The Perfection (2018)

Richard Shepard’s The Perfection is a damn good horror movie. As I mention in my review, it’s production designed to the nines. You can tell there’s some serious money being spend on this movie but it’s oddly not ostentatiously so in that it doesn’t feel like the producers a gathering a massive pile of greenbacks […]

Postmortem: The Fury (1978)

I am mystified why Brian DePalma’s The Fury (based on the novel by John Farris) hasn’t been remade because not only would the movie benefit from a more timely interpretation (in these days of government programs we often don’t completely understand, but fear a reboot could potentially find a very receptive audience) and a more […]

Ciarán Foy Is Sinister 2

The only film I have seen of Foy’s is his 2012 film Citadel (which plays […]

‘Contracted’ Review

“Irrelevant Details Mar What Could Have Been A Been An Excellent Example Of The ‘Body Horror’ Genre.” Eric England‘s “Contracted” isn’t a bad movie by any stretch.  It looks good, is well-acted, and competently shot. It’s also damned irritating. “Contracted” is in the vein of David Cronenberg‘s ‘Body Horror’ films, such as “Scanners,” “Videodrome” and […]

‘Antiviral’ Review

“Antiviral” is worth seeing, though it’s too cold, distant and clinical to be called enjoyable.” I really want to believe that that “Antiviral” had something to say about the nature of fame, and its costs. But, as the saying goes, if wishes were horses, beggars would ride. The film, the first by Brandon Cronenberg (the […]
