Scare Zone – Movie Review

WARNING: This movie contains strobe light effects. I will never fault an independent film – and I’m not talking about the kinds of “independent” films that have big names and access to big money – for trying to make something fresh and fun. Apparently garnering a limited release in 2009, the do-it-yourself Scare Zone is […]

Firestarter (2022) – Movie Review

Let me get this out of the way: I have no attachments to the previous incarnations of Firestarter – neither Stephen King’s 1980 novel nor the 1984 filmed adaptation – in particular. The book was one of King’s first that I ever read, but I barely remember anything from it; I didn’t see the Drew […]

Fresh (2022) – Movie Review

The Cursed (2022) – Movie Review

For the first two-thirds of The Cursed, we are abjectly throttled and abused, subjected to witnessing acts of horror and befoulment to the point of numbness. This film does not hesitate in getting straight to the point with shocking gore and dismemberments; one such grisly incident paves the way for the rest of the story […]

Candyman (2021) – Movie Review

The best of art makes us uncomfortable, revealing our blind spots and forcing us to look at things differently, as both individuals and as a society. American history is rife with racial injustice, and there is no shortage of evidence that plainly demonstrates that we haven’t risen far above our unsavory past. In 1992, Bernard […]

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 […]
