Movie Review: Mayhem (2017)

From Joe Lynch, director of “Everly,” comes Mayhem, an ugly mishmash of the zombie apocalypse and tower assault subgenres. Unwisely referencing “A Clockwork Orange” in the opening, with Rossini’s “The Thieving Magpie” overlaid on some stylized ultra-violence, Derek (Steven Yeun, “Okja”) explains the “IV7” virus via narration. It’s a condition which purportedly causes the sufferer…

Movie Review: Downhill (2016)

In a scene near the end of Downhill, a scowly, bald-headed ruffian mutters, “What a waste” just before blowing someone’s head off. The statement could also serve as an unfortunate slogan for the movie itself: An interesting premise and a gorgeous setting undermined by spotty writing and hysterical overacting.

And here you thought only the T-Virus of “Resident Evil” fame had the strength to carry a franchise. Well, the contagion of “[REC]” fame is back in [REC] 3: Genesis and it may have gotten even nastier. This time the infection takes root at a wedding reception. Predictably, all hell breaks loose, culminating in a…

Movie Trailer #2: Resident Evil: Retribution (2012)

Back in January we covered the teaser trailer for Resident Evil: Retribution and today we’re covering its first full theatrical trailer. Other than some Matrix-y mind games being played on our heroine, Alice, this installment (number five I think) plays out in the same fashion as its predecessors. Alice fights back against the Umbrella Corporation…

Movie Trailer: Resident Evil: Retribution (2012)

Jesus Christ. You’d think by now that damn T-virus and the Umbrella Corporation responsible for it would be out of commission. Neither are, and so Screen Gems has added a fifth installment to their video game cross-over cash cow — Resident Evil: Retribution. If you were wondering what happens this time around, stop. It’s basically…
