Rating: Not Rated Stars: Kevin Durand, Lukas Haas, Bianca Kajlich, Ethan Khusidman Writer: Tyler Hisel Director: Jack Heller Distributor: Image Entertainment/RLJ Entertainment Release Date: Blu-ray/DVD/VOD, September 1, 2015 DARK WAS THE NIGHT makes no pretense of reinventing the wheel. It is a straightforward, slow-burn monster in the woods story. What elevates it, apart from the strong performances of leads Kevin Durand and Lukas Haas, is the sense of certainty demonstrated by director Jack Heller and writer Tyler Hisel, demonstrating that sometimes all a story needs is to be told well.

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie, Chris Pine Writer: Nissar Modi, based on the novel by Robert C. O’Brien Director: Craig Zobel Distributor: Lionsgate/Roadside Attractions Release Date: August 28, 2015 Based on the novel by Robert C. O’Brien, Z FOR ZACHARIAH is a different kind of post-apocalyptic film. There are wastelands we glimpse from afar, but we’re not trapped in them. Likewise, there are no bands of marauders seeking oil, water, slaves or food. Instead, we are in a verdant valley that has somehow been untouched by what our heroine Ann (Margot Robbie) refers to as “the mistake,” which …Read On »

HITMAN AGENT 47 | © 2015 Twentieth Century Fox

Rating: R Stars: Rupert Friend, Hannah Ware, Zachary Quinto, Thomas Kretschmann, Ciaran Hinds Writers: Skip Woods and Michael Finch, story by Skip Woods, based on the videogame from Eidos Interactive Director: Aleksander Bach Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox Release Date: August 21, 2015 2007’s HITMAN, based on the Eidos Interactive videogame, was no great shakes. It wasn’t incompetent, but it seemed to suffer from an internal struggle, wanting to be a movie, but clinging to its less plot-and-character-driven roots. Now HITMAN: AGENT 47 is here. The good news is that it’s definitely a movie, and one with some decent plot twists …Read On »

Cast: Lance Henriksen, Camille Balsamo, Matt Winston, Giovonnie Samuels, Winston James Francis, Mick Ignis, Michael Estime Writer: Alec Gillis Director: Alec Gillis Distributor: Vertical Entertainment Release Date: August 7, 2015 HARBINGER DOWN is a pretty blatant rip-off of the John Carpenter classic THE THING. However, the people who made the film – on the back of a successful Kickstarter campaign combined with funds from their own pockets – make clear that’s what they were going for in a homage to not just THE THING but also other science fiction monster movies from the 80s including LEVIATHAN and even a bit …Read On »
