The Menu is as delicious as it is vile, as mouthwatering as it is salacious.

The School for Good and Evil (2022)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 19th, 2022 - Movie Reviews

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 (2022)

Dark Glasses is a satisfying return to form for Argento, this nifty little retro Giallo slasher a tasty October treat worth savoring.

Halloween Ends (2022)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 13th, 2022 - Movie Reviews

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 (2022)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 6th, 2022 - Movie Reviews

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 (2022)

Terrifier 2 is exhausting. Leone’s sequel wore me out, it’s objectionably devious nastiness too extreme even for me.

Hocus Pocus 2 (2022)

Hocus Pocus 2 has more magic than its predecessor, but that does not mean it casts a memorable or lasting spell.

Smile (2022)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 30th, 2022 - Movie Reviews

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.
