Beneath (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 12th, 2014 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

The supernatural undertones don’t sit well with the real world elements. [Ultimately] Beneath just doesn’t work, and as good as the opening half might be the second just doesn’t make the grade.

Witching & Bitching (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 18th, 2014 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Witching & Bitching is a comedic, gore-drenched, blatantly misogynistic free-for-all that manages to emasculate its male characters at the exact same time it marks them as superior to their female antagonists.

Willow Creek isn’t new, it doesn’t break the mold, but the honest truth is that it doesn’t have to. Goldthwait has made a seriously great scary movie.

Make no mistake, Obvious Child is a stunning debut. More than that, it’s also a terrific piece of cinema I’ll be thinking about and extolling the virtues of for a heck of a long time to come.

The Fault in Our Stars is an eye-opener. Boone does a masterful job most of the way through, everything anchored by a performance from Woodley that’s as terrific as any I’m likely to see delivered in all of 2014.

Rigor Mortis is both a clever homage to Hong Kong’s luminous horror history while also a disturbingly invigorating example that its future is in good hands, Mak’s directorial debut an impressive one indeed.
