Caveat (2021) – Movie Review

In Caveat’s tightly-wound, excruciatingly tense 88 minutes, you’ll never have a moment where you think, “I’ve got a moment to breathe.” No. Everything – from the introductions to our three characters to the maddening ending leaving some facets unexplained – is wrong (in a wonderful way) and totally off (and off-kilter) about this movie. With his […]

Killer Concept (2021) – Movie Review

One of the pandemic movies I was fortunate to review last year was this little gem of a no-budget independent film called Driven, starring Casey Dillard and Richard Speight, Jr. When you know the filmmakers and actors are working with a limited budget and crew with no access to locations or props they already own […]

Spiral: From the Book of Saw (2021) – Movie Review

Let me explain a bit about my experiences with the Saw franchise. My wife and I saw the first film in theaters shortly after we were married in 2004. It frayed our nerves so much, she couldn’t speak to me as we walked out after the film’s closing credits. On the way to the car, […]

At first glance, the Russian horror film Sleepless Beauty seems like a knockoff mashup of Saw and Untraceable, where a single participant is bound in a room and forced […]

Relic (2020) – Movie Review

I’m not quite sure what I was expecting from Relic, but I definitely didn’t expect to see an exceptionally powerful, humanity-driven horror story… and yet, here we are, lured in by the promise of a good, spooky possession story. But director/co-writer Natalie Erika James takes our expectations and the normal trappings of a haunted house/evil […]

The Grudge (2020) – Movie Review

Typically, the January movie slate is full of either awards nominees or soon-to-be-forgotten films dumped hastily into theaters. Curiously, the new installment of The Grudge falls into neither of those categories, being an entertaining visit to familiar grounds. It winds up as the best of the Grudge films since the 2004 American remake, with an […]
