Movie Review: Deadly Virtues: Love.Honour.Obey.

Deadly Virtues: Love.Honour.Obey., the latest film from Ate De Jong — the Dutch veteran director whose career goes back to and beyond “Drop Dead Fred” — is a raw, creepy, silly, and ultimately fairly powerful captive thriller.

Movie Review: Slasher.com (2017)
