Come Play (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 29th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Come Play ends up being a fun, frequently tense little genre shocker that’s also a sublime calling card for Chase that has me excited to see what he’ll get up to next.

Creepshow – Season 1 (2019) (Blu-ray)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 2nd, 2020 - Blu-ray and DVD

Like most horror anthologies, the first season of Creepshow is unsurprisingly hit-and-miss. But the hits, most notably “House of the Head,” “The Finger” and “The Man in the Suitcase,” are pretty terrific, while the misses are still just amusing enough to not get all that upset that they’re not nearly as strong as some of their counterparts are.

The Wretched (2019)

The Wretched is a fun flick, and even if it didn’t leave a lasting impression that doesn’t mean I was any less entertained.

Underwater (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 9th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Underwater gets the job done. I liked it a lot. Heck, I’m likely to head to the theatre and see it again before January ends.

Crawl (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 12th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Crawl is an unpretentious creature-feature from The Hills Have Eyes and High Tension filmmaker Alexandre Aja that’s every bit of gnarly fun as its ludicrous premise makes one hope it is going to be.

Tarantula (1955)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 7th, 2019 - Blu-ray and DVD

I love Jack Arnold’s Tarantula. It makes me smile. While not exactly up to the high standards set by THEM! or Godzilla, the movie is a smart, well-crafted giant monster yarn that features a handful of engaging performances and one killer titular creature.

A Quiet Place (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 6th, 2018 - Movie Reviews

A Quiet Place is close to perfect, this monstrously entertaining chiller a nightmare-inducing smash I’m going to be screaming the praises of for many years to come.

Krampus (2015)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 4th, 2015 - Movie Reviews

Krampus is a naughty little movie, and I mean that in a good way, and once again Dougherty proves himself to be crafty genre-bending filmmaker willing to make old school high-concept thrillers the likes of which studios are now reticent to put into production. As Christmas miracles for horror fans go, this is one stocking stuffer certain to be enjoyed for many years to come.
