Movie Review: Insidious: Chapter 2

Movie Review: Insidious: Chapter 2

This is a difficult one. On the one hand, the constant use of jump scares, which last for about two-thirds of the running time, feels like a cheat. The camera closes in on an actor, the music drops, and then, suddenly, WHAM, something appears, screams indecipherably, and a discordant note strikes. Repeat. And repeat,...

Movie Review: The Conjuring

July 20, 2013
Movie Review: The Conjuring

Lorraine and Ed Warren are probably the most well known paranormal investigators of all time. Their cases have inspired several films, including The Amityville Horror  (1979) and A Haunting in Connecticut (2009). Now comes The Conjuring, a film adaptation of their experiences at a farmhouse in Rhode Island in the early seventies. The Perron...

Movie Review: Stoker

March 15, 2013
Movie Review: Stoker

Stoker is a film at odds with itself. On paper, it’s a slick piece of neo-gothic thrills, parading its Jane-Eyre/Mysteries of Udolpho (and more) influences, with red rooms, sinister-seeming relatives, fogged-out basements, and driblets of blood. More plot-fully speaking, you have the mysterious death of a loved one, in this case the father Richard...

Movie Review: Warm Bodies

February 2, 2013
Movie Review: Warm Bodies

Is this a parody or a ripoff? Warm Bodies is so up front with its copies — copies– of Twilight that, judging from the trailer alone, by the time it hit theatres, I was sure it had to be a straight-up uppercut to tweener romance. I’m not so sure now. But I am certain...

Movie Review: Sinister

Movie Review: Sinister

Let me begin this review with a quick public service announcement. If you intend to see Sinister, for God’s sake don’t watch the trailer. It will suck the scares right out of the movie. When I see a horror movie, I want to feel frightened. I want to hunker down in my seat, biting...

Movie Review: Munger Road

Movie Review: Munger Road

When I see the words “based on true events” my interest is immediately piqued. Deep down, I know that term is used very, very loosely, but for some reason it amps up the fear factor on almost any horror film I watch. I can be watching the most mundane, run of the mill movie,...

Movie Review: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Movie Review: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

For everyone who has become utterly disgusted with what vampires have been reduced to at the modern cinema, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter serves as a welcome reprieve from all that nonsense. These are not the sparkly, love-struck vampires we have been subjected to as of late (I’m talking about you, Cullen clan).  They aren’t...

Movie Review: Entrance

May 17, 2012
Movie Review: Entrance

Although Entrance is being marketed as a horror film, it is actually a hybrid of character study and horror. I’m not going to lie; the first 2/3 of the movie is an exceptionally sluggish slow burn. I actually picked up the screening notes twice and reread them, because I thought I had been sent...

Movie Review: Mother’s Day

In honor of Mother’s Day, here’s my review of the aptly titled horror flick Mother’s Day. Looking for the perfect film to watch with mom this weekend?  I assure you, this is not it. Well, unless your mom is like me, and seeks out any depraved movie she can get her hands on. In...

Movie Review: Silent House

March 9, 2012
Movie Review: Silent House

This decent thriller and remake of the Uruguayan film La Casa Muda is more fun than scary — the jumps, false alarms, little girls, bumps in the night, close-ups of the heroine’s boobies, etc. — border on abuse they’re used so often; first it’s spooky, then it’s overused, then it comes back around to...
