Movie Review: Alien: Covenant (2017)

Here it is, the comeback the “Alien” franchise sorely needed. “Nothing,” remarked Daniels (Katherine Waterston, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”) on the noise level of her surroundings, a gorgeous planet seemingly teeming with conditions perfect for them, 2,000 in-cryosleep passengers and 1,000-plus embryos to colonize. Little does the character know this, but what…

Movie Review: Split (2016)

For some, watching an M. Night Shyamalan film is an experience that fills them with dread. But this dread can be separated in two distinct camps: First, the good kind of dread that accompanied Shyamalan’s first blockbusters in Hollywood — “The Sixth Sense,” “Unbreakable,” “Signs” — all quietly unsettling thrillers that, despite some weaknesses, still…

Movie Review: Dead Awake (2016)

Beth and Kate (Jocelin Donahue, “Knight of Cups”) are twins, and each is experiencing her late 20s in quite a different way. Kate is stable, confident and popular; Beth, living with her parents, is nervous and reclusive, and fearful of relapse. Beth is afflicted by “sleep paralysis,” a condition whereby the mind is awake but…

Movie Review: Teenage Ghost Punk (2014)

I didn’t think a comedy called Teenage Ghost Punk would be anything but a hot mess that tried too hard to be funny, but I was pleasantly surprised. It ain’t just funny; it’s uproarious, with a creative bent not often seen in the horror-comedy genre. Carol (Adria Dawn, “Uncle John”)is a middle-aged divorcee who’s left…

Movie Review: Valley of Ditches (2017)

This mediocre captivity-and-ordeal thriller, Valley of Ditches, is bound up in some atmospheric visuals and moody dark ambient music, but it’s too vague and too shallow to make a real impact. Its initially bold premise soon gives way to repetition — and frankly the simple hope that none of the characters will utter any more…

Movie Review: Antibirth (2016)

Body horror aficionados that double as completists feel like as wide an audience as writer/director Danny Perez’s trashy horror flick Antibirth can possibly be aiming for. Who else would voluntarily watch this? Perhaps you could add diehard Natasha Lyonne (“Sleeping with Other People”) fans to the mix as well, but surely that list isn’t long….

Movie Trailer: IT (2017)

Everyone loves a clown. Or do they? The residents of Derry, Maine most certainly don’t (or at least they shouldn’t). At the hands of a clown known as Pennywise, adults there go missing 6-times more than the national average and children disappear at an even higher rate. It’s this evil entity, and the seven kids…
