Too Late (2021) – Movie Review

Too Late reminds me of several things all at once. The first is a scathing, profanity-laced tirade W. Axl Rose fires off about Warren Beatty before Guns N’ Roses launches into “Double Talkin’ Jive” from their 1992 pay-per-view concert in Paris. The second is Swimming With Sharks, a 1994 film about the horrible things a […]

Woe (2021) – Movie Review

Indie horror films usually fall into two categories. The first is in being a smallish horror film trying to hold its own against the big boys, and these often prove to be more fun than their studio-funded brethren. The second lies in a deeply personal realm, where things make more sense to the director and […]

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 […]

End of Sentence (2020) – Movie Review

Between John Hawkes’ timid mess of a father and Logan Lerman’s recently-imprisoned son, there’s a lot of awkward silence highlighting a world of difference. Frank Fogle, a man scared of his own shadow, and Sean, who won’t be cowed by anything, are about to embark on an intercontinental voyage which might prove blood is truly […]

Altered Minds

I liken Altered Minds (formerly titled The Red Robin) to the 1999 Kevin Bacon film Stir of Echoes and 1995’s The Usual Suspects, in that all three films almost possess you to turn right back around and watch the film with the ending in mind. These three films are about reality bent for a purpose, but […]
