Movie Review: Phobias (2021)

Conceptual films are always a welcome change from the norm. It takes vision and courage to put together a complex film of this nature and form a whole world without necessarily having to explain it all. Phobias, although an anthology, falls in this category.

Movie Review: The Owners (2020)

Having watched “Unbreakable” all those years ago, I felt my mind break a little…
