It’s “Country” or “The Southerner” or “Jean de Fleurette” but […]

Horror veteran Caroline Williams, who’s been around since “Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2” back in the ’80s, gets a fine C-movie showcase in “10 Minutes to Midnight,” a tale of a “rabid” bat and the hallucinatory bloodlust consequences it has on an aging DJ’s last night on the job. Or that’s what she would have gotten […]

Movie Review: “Wrong Turn”

As far as “fears” go, I typically prefer mysterious and unknown peril to frights shoved in my face, explained, back-storied and underlined. But that’s now how the “Wrong Turn” movies work. For twenty years these films have gotten good looking actresses and actors lost in America and the world’s fast-disappearing wild places, menaced by whatever […]

LOCKED DOWN (2021)

Locked Down (2021), Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anne Hathaway, Warner Brothers Locked Down has some memorable moments. Yet, overall, director Doug Limans romance/comedy about a couple’s attempt at a high-risk, high-stakes jewellery heist during the Coronavirus pandemic isn’t great. Starring Anne Hathaway, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Ben Kingsley; the most memorable scenes for me feature Kingsley and Ben Stiller. […]

Atlantis – Movie Review

To say there’s an overabundance of dystopian scenarios throughout pop culture would be one of the biggest of understatements. Yet it can seem odd, especially since there are plenty of situations and ordeals around the world, currently happening, that are just as vivid and worthy of attention — no escape or creation needed. One of […]
