Amulet (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 24th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Amulet is a distinctly feminist journey where answers only reveal additional questions, and doing the so-called “right thing” could lead to ghastly unforeseen events born of entitled selfishness that are both heinous and unforgivable all at the same time.

Relic (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 10th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Relic is a singularly magnetic motion picture that burrows under the skin leaving a lasting scar, the hushed uncertainty of the devastation left behind in its wake impossible to forget.

Homewrecker (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 9th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Homewrecker is one heck of an entertaining foray into psychologic discombobulation, everything building to a shockingly gruesome climax I honestly didn’t see coming.

Dream Demon (1988) (Blu-ray)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 30th, 2020 - Blu-ray and DVD

While undeniably a product of its time (and limited budget), Dream Demon is still a fascinating gem of a suspense flick, Arrow doing a stupendous job in bringing this title to Blu-ray.

The Soul Collector (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 19th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

There are numerous layers to writer/director Harold Holscher’s subdued, elegantly eerie South African horror yarn The Soul Collector, many of them uncomfortably fascinating.

One Cut of the Dead (2017) (Blu-ray Steelbook)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 16th, 2020 - Blu-ray and DVD

Low budget Japanese import One Cut of the Dead is one of those festival favorites that actually lives up to every ounce of the hype.

Creepshow – Season 1 (2019) (Blu-ray)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 2nd, 2020 - Blu-ray and DVD

Like most horror anthologies, the first season of Creepshow is unsurprisingly hit-and-miss. But the hits, most notably “House of the Head,” “The Finger” and “The Man in the Suitcase,” are pretty terrific, while the misses are still just amusing enough to not get all that upset that they’re not nearly as strong as some of their counterparts are.

War of the Worlds (2005) (4K Ultra HD)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 18th, 2020 - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD

Holy freaking cow the technical aspects of this 4K Ultra HD version of Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds are nothing less than dazzling. From an audio-visual standpoint, this disc is perfect.
