Rent-A-Pal (2020) – Movie Review

Watching Rent-A-Pal – a psychological horror regarding video dating and friendship set in 1990 – during our current isolation wasn’t what writer/director Jon Stevenson had in mind, seeing how it’s been three years from writing to release. As Stevenson tells it in a recent roundtable interview, “I had fallen into this depression and anxiety… and […]

Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula (2020) – Movie Review

The 2016 surprise zombie/action movie Train to Busan caught us all off-guard as an unknown, gut-wrenching tale about a family’s fateful journey from Seoul to Busan, Korea.

The Tent (2020) – Movie Review

The way The Tent operates is in confusion until its final reveal. A recent parallel would be M. Night Shyamalan’s Split, a similar movie swiftly redefined in its post-closing title twist, but Split at least didn’t keep you in the dark about its aims or its subject matter. With The Tent, we’re kept on a […]

Yes, God, Yes (2020) – Movie Review

Yes, God, Yes felt like a revisit to high school. Rumors, budding sexuality, the intolerance concealed by a thin veil of gentility, and the judgment we cast on others to make us feel better about ourselves… yup. I grew up Catholic; Yes, God, Yes was like dropping in on a friend and then finding yourself […]
