    Anyone note how fugly this movie is? It's a desaturated teal-and-orange fest, with entire sequences comprised of no more than minor variations of the two color tones. Combine this with an...

    One of last year's best, available streaming on Netflix for those in the U.S. Not only is it dramatically devastating and thematically thorny as fuck, but it's a formal masterwork, and mordantly...

    This is amusing enough as a whole, but it's inferior to the last two Lin entries, and frankly, I expected better from Wan; it turns into a bit of a slog after the Etihad towers sequence, the home...

    Went into this with an anti-Ińárritu axe to grind, greased by the mini-backlash that has been building amidst the critical circles I follow, but I found it to be a surprisingly slippery beast, and an...

    Regarding Gordon, I'd recommend King of the Ants, Dagon, and The Pit and the Pendulum as some of his undervalued efforts.

    Chuck Russell's remake of The Blob is available on Blu-ray for a limited time, as only 5,000 units are being printed. The price is a bit steep, but I couldn't resist.

    I like Zombie's Halloween duo a lot, I was among the first to defend them, but Carpenter's film is an all-time favorite, easily among my top ten horror. The best sequel in the original series is...

    You may have been the only person who listened when I recommended Penumbra a few years back DaMu, so it's nice to see that I'm not his only fan around here.

    Ahh fuck it, a mild yay. A film out of time, I'm struck by how so many critics have lazily reduced its ideology to reactionary luddism (its clunky storytelling on the other hand is fair game), when...
