Release Date (streaming on demand at equalstandardmovie.com): May 14, 2020  EQUAL STANDARD stakes a claim in the Wild West of movie distribution during Covid-19 lockdown by making itself available at equalstandardmovie.com for $9.99. For big-city viewers, this is a decent price, especially if there’s more than one viewer. The plot and intended scope of EQUAL STANDARD might be better served by an HBO miniseries.

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Mason Wells, Geoff McKnight, L.A. Winters, Zach Galligan, Hannah Fierman, Courtney Hogan, Courtney Lakin, Jonathan Horne Writers: Yasmin Bakhtiari and Nancy Knight Director: Matt Green Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment Release Date (DVD and Digital): May 12, 2020 EVIL LITTLE THINGS is billed as a horror anthology. This isn’t quite accurate – it’s actually two stories, bound together by a wraparound third. The theme here is creepy dolls, which for some of us never gets old, providing it’s done right. Despite the fact that Matt Green directed the entire enterprise, the quality varies from piece to piece. The […]Read On »

If it were called anything except VALLEY GIRL, it would be easier to accept on its own terms. But somehow it was decided that using the name for a film very unlike the 1983 original, thereby inviting apples to cucumbers […]Read On »
