Movie Review: Digging Up the Marrow (2014)

I had the opportunity to meet Adam Green almost exactly three years ago, at a screening of his horror/comedy sitcom “Holliston” at Emerson College in his native Massachusetts. What I appreciated about him the most — and what clearly shines through in all of his work that I have seen — was his unapologetic enthusiasm…

A Cry From Within (2014) by The Critical Movie Critics

Movie Review: A Cry From Within (2014)

By far the best and most original aspect of A Cry From Within is the fact that it revolves around an extremely solid family. Advertising executive Cecile (Deborah Twiss, who wrote and directed the film and upon whose real life experiences it claims to be based), therapist Jonathan (Eric Roberts “The Expendables”), and their children…

Movie Review: Something Wicked (2014)

As the case itself boasts in a rather tasteless red banner across its top, Something Wicked was the last movie in which the late Brittany Murphy appeared. If this uncomfortably poor attempt at a cerebral horror film will be remembered for anything, it will be that. Well, that and the fact that Murphy probably deserved…

Zombieworld (2015) by The Critical Movie Critics

Movie Review: Zombieworld (2015)

Zombieworld is a horror-comedy tour de force that’s an absolute must see for everyone who enjoys mixing their giggles with their gore. While far from a perfect film, Zombieworld is an anthology style romp through one take on the apocalypse that injects as much new life into its genre as it resurrects, leading to some…

Movie Review: The Atticus Institute (2015)

The eponymous academy around which The Atticus Institute revolves, as we are told early on (via ominous letters on the screen, an info-dump technique frequently employed by mockumentary and found footage films), was founded by Dr. Henry West (William Mapother, “I Origins”) in order to study “psi-related phenomena,” such as clairvoyance and telekinesis, until it…

The Device (2014) by The Critical Movie Critics

Movie Review: The Device (2014)

It’s been twelve years since Abby (Angela DiMarco) last saw her sister, Rebecca (Kate Alden), and she’s very nervous about spending time with her again. Accompanied by Abby’s fiancé Calvin (David S. Hogan), they travel to the family cabin in the woods to spread their mother’s ashes in the lake she loved. The weekend is…

Wolves (2014) by The Critical Movie Critics

Movie Review: Wolves (2014)

A little too late to cash in on the “Twilight” trend, but perhaps what fans of the genre need, Wolves brings the young adult audience front and center once again, despite the recent decline in vampire and werewolf themed movies. It has everything it needs to appeal to such a crowd, and yet will probably…
