Stars: Jake Gyllenhall, Melanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon, Isabella Rossellini Writer: Javier Gullon, based on the novel THE DOUBLE by Jose Saramago Director: Denis Villeneuve Distributor: A24 Theatrical Release Date: March 21, 2014 The film ENEMY is based on Jose Saramago’s 2004 novel THE DOUBLE. Saramago is a Nobel Prize-winning author, and it’s entirely possible the source material for this movie is brilliant. ENEMY, however, is not.

Rating: R Stars: Iain De Caestecker, Alice Englert, Allen Leech Writer: Jeremy Lovering Director: Jeremy Lovering Distributor: Anchor Bay Films Blu-Ray/DVD/VOD Release Date: March 11, 2014 It’s hard to make any kind of a gripping movie with limited sets and very few cast members, but writer/director Jeremy Lovering succeeds with his debut feature, IN FEAR. Genre fans can relate elements of the scenario to a lot of other suspense/horror films, but IN FEAR works as an original, as well as an unexpectedly good character piece.
