Movie Review: The Curse of Downers Grove (2015)

As the title, The Curse of Downers Grove, suggests, there’s a curse on the small town of Downers Grove — each year, a senior dies in the days leading up to graduation. I incorrectly assumed the curse would be supernatural, and as soon-to-graduate high school senior Chrissie (Bella Heathcote, “Dark Shadows”) tells her friends, it’s…

Movie Review: A Plague So Pleasant (2013)

There was a time when the zombie movie was confined to a single genre, back when George Romero was terrorizing survivors in farm houses and shopping malls, but now things have gotten more complicated. The popular-as-ever undead have wandered beyond horror into the comedy, action, and drama genres. It’s great that they’ve branched out, but…

Movie Review: Sinister 2 (2015)

The original “Sinister” was an unnerving film that followed true crime writer Ellison Oswalt (Ethan Hawke) as he moved his family into a house where the previous occupants had been brutally murdered. While researching the crime, he discovered an old cardboard box of old 8mm home movies in the attic — horrifying depictions of multiple…

One such…

Movie Review: What We Do in the Shadows (2014)

Vampires ain’t cool no more. They used to be so and, as happens to everything trendy, they kind of got old. Then came the whole teenage-sexy-cheesy “Twilight” saga (with every twitched creature it spawned, monstrosities such as “Vampire Academy”) and sucked the genre dry. Vampires thus lost any bit of credibility they had left, and…

Movie Review: The Gallows (2015)

If you watched the trailer for The Gallows, you probably got the impression you were going to see an intense flick in which some high school kids that are involved in some sort of drama production are viciously attacked by a supernatural entity. And while you wouldn’t be entirely wrong, you’ve nonetheless been dealt a…

Movie Review: The House with 100 Eyes (2014)

The found footage approach to low-budget filmmaking has been around long enough to be used in all sorts of fun and clever ways, each attempt toeing the line between committing to the gimmick and admitting it. We’ve witnessed ghostly activity on home surveillance equipment (“Paranormal Activity”) and a giant monster trashing New York on a…
