Film Review: ANTIVIRAL (2012)

CALEB LANDRY JONES. You’ve probably been seeing that name associated with a lot of roles lately, from the psychotic brother of Allison Williams character in Jordan Peele’s brilliant directorial debut GET OUT, to a conflicted, drug-addicted boyfriend in David Lynch’s revisit to TWIN PEAKS. His first role should have been an indication of things to come, as one of the kids on bikes who spots a wounded Javier Bardem in The Coen Brothers’...

Film Review: 1922 (2017)

At a time it couldn’t have been more appropriate, to follow up their success with Mike Flanagan’s adaptation of GERALD’S GAME, Netflix follows it up with another celebrated King novella, “1922”, written and directed by ZAK HILDITCH, previously known for the apocalyptic Aussie cult hit, THESE FINAL HOURS. With the topic of violence against women front-and-center these days, King’s source material digs at the stoic “orneriness” that...

Film Review: THE BABYSITTER (2017)

When looking back fondly on old films from the 80’s and even further back, we should take care that the rose-colored glasses we’re seeing them through don’t blind us to the obvious. Too often now, I’ve read/heard complaints online about how much new movies “SUCK ASS”, because the filmmakers, who grew up on the same old classics you did, try too hard to imitate what they saw, rather than try and duplicate the warm, fuzzy feelings that...

Film Review: LITTLE EVIL (2017)

No company that produces a lot of movies every year, gets it right 100% of the time. For every time that jump shot hits “nothing but net”, there’s those ‘air-balls’…the near-misses to the outright “HTF does this movie even EXIST???” Netflix is no exception, and this time the ‘almost-got-there’ award goes to writer/director ELI CRAIG’S LITTLE EVIL (2017). Craig, you’d think, would be a shoo-in for an OMEN-like horror parody,...

Film Review: THE HOUSE ON WILLOW STREET (2016)

Without hesitation, I can declare my movie geek love for SHARNI VINSON. Ever since she captured my attention in the excellent home invasion thriller YOU’RE NEXT!, I’ve been trying to catch up to everything she’s been in, but have only managed to see the remake of the classic Aussie cult chiller, PATRICK, which had a lion’s share of flaws, but she wasn’t one of them, as far as I’m concerned. I...
