Feig’s film is nowhere near as fully realized or as creatively satisfying as I kept hoping it was going to be, making The School for Good and Evil a mixed bag of magic tricks.
Dark Glasses is a satisfying return to form for Argento, this nifty little retro Giallo slasher a tasty October treat worth savoring.
The climax of Halloween Ends is pure, unabashed, blood-soaked nonsense, culminating in that full-throttle showdown that’s been 44 years in the making and promised in the sequel’s title.
Hellraiser understands that suffering isn’t a black-or-white emotion. It resides in the gray areas of the human psychological condition, and is as vital for healing and survival as friendship, companionship, or even love.
Terrifier 2 is exhausting. Leone’s sequel wore me out, it’s objectionably devious nastiness too extreme even for me.
Bros does entertain, and my laughs were loud and hearty on multiple occasions. I just wish Stoller and Eichner had made an attempt to dig a little deeper.
For fans of the genre, Dead for a Dollar is an essential quick-draw jolt of B-grade pulp fiction worth unholstering.
Hocus Pocus 2 has more magic than its predecessor, but that does not mean it casts a memorable or lasting spell.
For all its strengths, Smile does Dr. Cotter dirty. Worse, it made me feel culpable in her abuse. I didn’t like that. Not one single bit. In fact, I unreservedly hated it.
