Instead, this FOREST OF DEATH is a modest but fairly well-done low-budget horror movie. It’s uneven, but its merits add up to more than its faults. For starters, the […]Read On »

HYPNOTICA movie poster | ©2023 Terror Films

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Adam Johnson, Tim Torre, Taylor Foster, Marisa Echeverria Writer: A.T. Sharma Director: A.T. Sharma Distributor: Terror Films Release Date: March 31, 2023 (digital) HYPNOTICA opens with the supertitle: “The following is based on actual case studies.” This is broadly true, in the sense that psychiatrists treat patients for mental health issues. Oliver Reese (Adam Johnson) tells us in voiceover that, “I was going to Hell.” He then recites part of W.B. Yeats’s poem “The Stolen Child,” but substitutes “spirit” for “faery.” In fact, Oliver is going to see his psychiatrist, Mason Santino (Tim Torre). Oliver has […]Read On »

In the new Western BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE WILD BUNCH, now available on the free streaming service Tubi, Butch and his gang are relentlessly pursued by relentless lawman Charles Siringo. Like Cassidy, Siringo is a real-life historical figure. He was a sheriff who gained fame when he joined the Pinkerton National Detective Agency — though the film champions him more as the villain of the piece rather than the hero. Jeffrey Combs, who plays Siringo, explains that Pinkerton was like the Blackwater of its time, a group of independent contractors who operated largely outside the law. “Pinkerton detectives were hired […]Read On »
