The Apparition (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 24th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

The Apparition is a tediously uninspired ghostly mess, and in the cold light of day the wonder isn’t why it took so long for Warner Bros to put it into general release, but instead why they felt the need to do so at all.

Compliance (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 17th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

It’s bravura filmmaking, and without question Compliance is one of the finest features I’ll likely see in all of 2012.

ParaNorman (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 17th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

The moral of this story is universal and, especially in a heated election season filled with double-speak, specious innuendo and outright lies, everyone everywhere should listen to.

I don’t have a lot that’s positive to say about Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Prometheus (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 8th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Who are we? Where do we come from? Where do we go from here? Are we alone in the universe? These are just a few of the questions Prometheus asks, the end product not so much reaching for answers as it is more interested in reigniting the cooling embers of an age-old debate.

Dark Shadows (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 11th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

His Dark Shadows is an odd duck, never really finding solid footing yet still offering up plenty of laughs, some of them the biggest the director has crafted since Beetlejuice. It goes to some highly intriguing places and isn’t afraid to slow dance across a blood-red floor.

The Raven (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 27th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

McTeigue’s thriller is a massive missed opportunity, The Raven leaving my tell-tale-heart wanting and to the idea of ever watching it again in the future I can boil my feelings down to a single word: Nevermore.

The Cabin in the Woods (2011)

The Cabin in the Woods is a winner. I can’t wait to watch it again, and I’m sure this will become an annual staple for re-watch every Halloween.

Detention (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 13th, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Kahn’s sophomore effort Detention has guts and it cheekily goes for gory glory, both traits I do not personally take for granted and ones I think audiences open to this sort of thing will eagerly want to explore.
