V for Vendetta (2005)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 17th, 2006 - Movie Reviews

V for Vendetta is a bold, unflinching portrait of a world viewers might not want to look at too closely. It is a place where the sights and sounds are so harsh and hard they make some cringe and weep for all they’ve suffered and lost.

A History of Violence (2005)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 23rd, 2005 - Movie Reviews

Cronenberg is a filmmaker willing to push boundaries and ask tough questions others don’t just shy away from, they sprint in the opposite direction in total fear. A History of Violence is no different.

House of Wax (2005)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 6th, 2005 - Movie Reviews

House of Wax is cruelly juvenile in ways that worked for me, and as far as Dark Castle’s current run of bloody horror remakes are concerned, this might just be their best one yet.

Bad Education (2004)

Bad Education is a brazen, ambisexual noir that embraces the conventions of the genre while at the same time shattering them with explicit wickedness.

The Manchurian Candidate (2004)

While this The Manchurian Candidate doesn’t leave the same chilling residue as Frankenheimer’s opus, this version is still a surprisingly unnerving procedural.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 17th, 2003 - Movie Reviews

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre wants you to look these demonic figures in the eye and see how long it takes a person to flinch. My bet is said flinching will happen long before the chainsaw purrs.
