The Intruder (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 2nd, 2019 - Movie Reviews

I honestly wish The Intruder stuck the landing because, as mindless and as absurd as this thriller might be, it’s fiendishly well directed, craftily scripted and rarely takes itself so seriously that its more insidiously inane qualities become almost endearing.

Escape Room (2019)

The first wide release of 2019, director Adam Robitel’s Escape Room is an inventive little horror-thriller that has a fair amount of fun with its somewhat familiar premise.

Flight (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 2nd, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Flight isn’t an easy sit. It doesn’t offer up comforting answers to the many questions it raises or deal in exaggerated platitudes an audience might find simplistically comforting.

Sinister (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 12th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

At its heart Sinister is a tragedy of a man inadvertently attempting to fall on a sword of his own welding, making the final moments more poignantly heartrending then I anticipated.

Tell No One (2006)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 11th, 2008 - Movie Reviews

Tell No One is the type of thriller viewers won’t want to keep quiet about. In fact, if they have any sense they’re going to be screaming to see it again.

Cloverfield (2008)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 18th, 2008 - Movie Reviews

For a blissfully exhausting, fast and furious 80 minutes, Reeves pays homage to 1950s giant monster classics while also imaginatively making the genre deviously his own.
