Movie Review: Ugly Sweater Party (2018)

There is a certain tension when it comes to reviewing comedy-horror. Criticize its more risible aspects and there’s an inherent get-out-of-jail-free card in the fact that it’s spoofing that which we usually take seriously. Therefore, what use is serious criticism? And serious Ugly Sweater Party is not. The blooper reel at the end of Aaron…

Movie Review: Annabelle: Creation (2017)

Annabelle: Creation begins sometime in the mid-twentieth century where, isolated in a beautiful old farmhouse, dollmaker Samuel Mullins (Anthony LaPaglia, “A Good Marriage”) lives with his wife, Esther (Miranda Otto, “The Homesman”), and his happy, fun-loving daughter Bee (Samara Lee, “Concussion”).

Movie Review: The Possession Experiment (2016)

The Possession Experiment, centers around, as you might guess, a possession experiment.

You could say he’s struggling to stay sober, but I think it’s more accurate to say he’s struggling to keep enough alcohol in the house to keep…

Movie Trailer: Ghostbusters (2016)

It’s taken 30 years for the ghosts in Manhattan to regroup enough to be a concern so large that some had to call for the Ghostbusters again. Venkman, Spengler and Stantz have long since retired (although I’m sure they’ll make a surprise visit) so in this updated Ghostbusters, four women have accepted the call to…

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…
