Movie Review: Somebody’s Darling (2016)

To describe what breed of horror movie Somebody’s Darling is would be a spoiler in itself. Suffice to say, it’s small-scale, slow-burning, strange and sometimes surreal. It’s also very good. The setting is Williamsburg University, in 2006. History student Sarah (Jessa Settle, “Accidentally Engaged”) and her bitchy buddies arrive at a frat party and find…

Movie Review: The Follower (2017)

“Creepy Passion” might sound like a dating site for certain high-profile members of the movie industry, but in this unambitious found footage horrorer, The Follower, from feature debutant writer-director Kévin Mendiboure, it’s the name of a faux YouTube program specializing in all things scary.

Movie Review: The Bye Bye Man (2017)

The Bye Bye Man begins on a sunny day in the late 1960s with a Wisconsin man asking acquaintances “who they’ve told.” Wielding a shotgun, he breaks down their front door, and apologizes profusely as he murders a husband and wife in cold blood. He then stalks across the street, chasing down a young woman…

Movie Review: The Devil Lives Here (2015)

The Devil does many things in movies. He rides out, he has a brigade, he hangs out with Miss Jones and Daniel Webster, and he even thumbs a ride. And, apparently, he lives in a farmhouse in rural Brazil in the aptly named The Devil Lives Here. (This would be useful information for the local…
