Movie Review: German Angst (2015)

German Angst is a movie for the “V/H/S,” “Zombieworld,” “The ABCs of Death” crowd in that it is technically a collection of three shorter films — “Final Girl,” “Make a Wish,” and “Alraune,” respectively — full of extreme violence and horrific fun. With “Final Girl” as a quiet, graphic, and personal revenge fantasy, “Make a…

Movie Review: Anthropoid (2016)

During World War II, many European countries occupied by Nazi Germany had resistance movements that fought against the invaders with whatever methods they could. Czechoslovakia’s resistance led to Adolf Hitler’s third in command, SS General Reinhard Heydrich and architect of the Final Solution, being stationed to Prague, where he instituted a brutal crackdown on the…

Movie Review: Race (2016)

If there was ever a multi-level headline, this new release, Race, from director Stephen Hopkins (“Predator 2,” “The Reaping”) sure has it.

Written by Michael Petroni and based on the novel by Australian author Markus Zusak, it is a story told with power…

Movie Review: Outpost: Black Sun (2012)

By and large, sequels are often pointless, as they’re usually just produced for the sake of exploiting a successful brand name. 2008’s straight-to-video gem “Outpost,” though, practically begged for a sequel, as it established a fascinating central mythology ripe for further exploration. With the team behind the original movie returning for this sequel, fans will…

Movie Review: The Debt (2010)

The Debt is directed by John Madden and is a remake of Assaf Bernstein’s 2007 film of the same name. It begins with retired Mossad agents Rachel (Helen Mirren) and Stefan (Tom Wilkinson), in the year of 1997, receiving the bad news that their former colleague and friend, David (Ciaran Hinds), has committed suicide. We’re…
