Halloween Ends (2022) : Movie Review

(Originally published at Gunaxin on October 14, 2022.) Where does evil live? The body or the soul? Or is it something else altogether? Are we the product of our traumas, or are we alive in spite of them? Halloween Ends – an effective series closer for the Halloween 40 (H40) timeline – goes hard in the metaphysical paint, asking […]

Hellraiser (2022) – Movie Review

Author’s note: There’s something weirdly awesome and kinda nuts about watching a screener of a movie called Hellraiser and seeing a “Property of Disney” watermark pop up every now and again.

Wire Room (2022) – Movie Review

The premise of Wire Room is certainly more interesting than its execution. A lone federal agent in a secure facility tries to prevent a surveillance target from being killed – it’s gold, bearing many opportunities to tell this story with meaning, purpose, and style.

The Good Boss (2022) – Movie Review

There is a whimsy running through The Good Boss (original title: El Buen Patrón) that defies description. You could call it black comedy, dominoes falling during one man’s week from hell, or just life being the unpredictable bitch that it is, throwing every possible curve at you until either you beg for mercy or take […]
