Movie Review: The Eyes of My Mother (2016)

A woman (Diana Agostini, “The Eyes of Van Gogh”) looks out the window of her remote hillside home. A strange man (Will Brill, “Girls Against Boys”) is talking to her young daughter, who was playing in the garden. She goes out to investigate. He gives her a too-bright smile and asks when her husband will…

Movie Review: ABCs of Death 2 (2014)

Sequels, warranted or not, are a mostly foregone conclusion in today’s cinematic climate. They’re so prevalent, I imagine a checklist of sorts exists that lays out the criteria for a follow-up. It’d be rather simple-minded too, like: Based on a multi-book franchise or video game with a built in audience? Sequel. Made a ton of…

Movie Review: Grand Piano (2013)

It is not uncommon to experience a false sense of enlightenment when confined or placed into a stressful setting. You don’t always necessarily understand your surroundings or know how you arrived there, but you will, nonetheless, attempt to find meaning in the situation and overcome. Eugenio Mira’s Grand Piano tries for such an effect. The…

Movie Review: The ABCs of Death (2012)

Farts, dogfights, and miscarriages. In part, the perfect additions to a horror flick. Right? Well, not really. But the 26 directors (and 12 producers, and 14 writers) of The ABCs of Death certainly believed so. Otherwise they wouldn’t have added those and a host of other topics involving bodily functions and strange dreamed up shit…

Movie Review: John Dies at the End (2012)

If “Limitless” were mixed with “Dude, Where’s My Car?” and perhaps “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” you’d end up somewhere near to John Dies at the End. Directed by Don Coscarelli (best known for cult hits “Phantasm” and “Bubba Ho-Tep”), the trippy feature blurs the lines of reality as it follows around best friends…

Movie Review: The Innkeepers (2011)

Alice is an unflattering name for a woman. It’s not, however, nearly as bad as Claire is. For me, Claire conjures up an image of a sad, homely girl whiling away the hours, in a rocker, crocheting a sweater. It is, therefore, a fitting name then for the boy-haircut having, wearing the same dull clothes…

Movie Trailer: The Innkeepers (2011)

Late last night Magnet Releasing (Magnolia Pictures) put out the trailer for their haunted hotel flick, The Innkeepers. It takes place in The Yankee Pedlar Hotel and poking its other-wordly inhabitants are two employees charged with boxing everything up and closing its doors forever. I’m not the biggest fan of Sara Paxton but the two…
