Fantastic Fest Review: Rubber

October 11, 2010
Fantastic Fest Review: Rubber

When I read the synopsis for Rubber - an experimental film about a psychokinetic, automobile tire that goes on a killing spree in the desert – I thought it sounded like an awesome idea for a short film.  Then I read that it was, in fact, a full feature length film (85 minutes, to be exact)...

Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Never Let Me Go’

October 8, 2010
Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Never Let Me Go’

A trio of schoolchildren are bound by a shocking secret in Mark Romanek’s Never Let Me Go.   Although it has been couched as a sci-fi thriller, the movie is actually a beautiful and bittersweet love story between two of the central characters.  It’s as poignant and tragic as any great love story out...

Fantastic Fest Review: Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day, directed by Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III, IV), is loosely based on a horrific, true story that took place in Wichita, Kansas 10 years ago – as well as the 1980 Charles Kaufman film by the same name.  The setting changes from an ill-fated camping trip to a tale of home invasion in...

Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Stone’

Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Stone’

If you’ve been following the marketing for Stone, you are no doubt poised to see a psychological thriller, of sorts. Unfortunately, Stone plays more like a  psychodrama than a psychological thriller.  The movie does a bang-up  job of establishing that something very, very  bad is going to happen.  Through music, imagery and a frightening...

Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Buried’

Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Buried’

I remember when I saw the trailer for Buried (directed by Rodrigo Cortés and starring Ryan Reynolds), I thought it looked horrifying – though I was curious how the film would play out for it’s 94 minute running time.  While conceptually interesting, Buried is essentially about a man trapped inside a box – material which seems better...

The movie will be released in theaters unrated, the second October release to buck the trend and opt for no rating (the other being I Spit on Your Grave 2010, which...

Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Kidnapped’

September 30, 2010
Fantastic Fest Review: ‘Kidnapped’

Harrowing is the word that keeps coming to mind every time I think about this nasty little Spanish thriller, also known as Secuestrados.   It’s a nail biter from the opening long-cut sequence to the shocking conclusion. The film begins with a bloodied man in a business suit (with a white plastic bag tied...
