YOU'LL NEVER FIND ME movie poster | ©2024 Shudder

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Brendan Rock, Jordan Cowan Writer: Indianna Bell Directors: Josiah Allen and Indianna Bell Distributor: Shudder Release Date: March 22, 2024 (Shudder) YOU’LL NEVER FIND ME is well-made, well-shot, and extremely well-acted. Directors Josiah Allen and Indianna Bell, working from Bell’s script, do a first-rate job of putting a lot of visual variety into a film that essentially takes place in one location: the interior of a large mobile home in an Australian trailer park. Patrick (Brendan Rock) lives alone here. He has an old-fashioned portable radio plugged into the wall. He is examining liquid in a […]Read On »



LATE NIGHT WITH THE DEVIL movie poster | ©2024 IFC Films/Shudder

Rating: R Stars: David Dastmalchian, Laura Gordon, Ian Bliss, Fayssal Bazzi, Ingrid Torelli, Rhys Auteri, Georgina Haig, Josh Quong Tart, Michael Ironside (voice) Writers: Colin Cairnes & Cameron Cairnes Directors: Colin Cairnes & Cameron Cairnes Distributor: IFC Films/Shudder Release Date: March 22, 2024 (theatrical); April 19, 2024 (Shudder) Sometimes, it works just fine if a movie indicates at the start how it’s going to finish. Such is the case with LATE NIGHT WITH THE DEVIL, an almost perfect example of how to construct horror movie tension in a contained environment. LATE NIGHT WITH THE DEVIL takes the form of a […]Read On »

SUITABLE FLESH movie poster | ©2023 RLJE Films/Shudder

SUITABLE FLESH makes its Shudder debut on January 26, and is also available on home video. The body horror film is a modern, gender-swapped take on H.P. Lovecraft’s novella “The Thing on the Doorstep.” Most of SUITABLE FLESH is in the form of an extended flashback, as psychiatrist Dr. Elizabeth Derby (Heather Graham), currently confined to a padded cell, explains her version of recent events to her friend and colleague Dr. Daniella Upton, played by Barbara Crampton (one of the film’s producers). Joe Lynch directed and is one of the executive producers on SUITABLE FLESH, which was written for the […]Read On »



THE SACRIFICE GAME movie poster | ©2023 Shudder

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Mena Massoud, Olivia Scott Welch, Gus Kenworthy, Madison Baines, Derek Johns, Laurent Pitre, Chloë Levine, Georgia Acken Writers: Jenn Wexler & Sean Redlitz Director: Jenn Wexler Distributor: Shudder Release Date: December 8, 2023 (Shudder) THE SACRIFICE GAME is set in 1971, perhaps to avoid pesky technology issues and/or to justify the careful production design and color schemes. Directed by Jenn Wexler, with a script by Wexler & Sean Redlitz, it has a nicely-balanced mix of human malice and the supernatural. We are introduced upfront to “the Christmas Killers,” as they have been dubbed by the press. […]Read On »



IT'S A WONDERFUL KNIFE movie poster | ©2023 RLJE Films/Shudder

Rating: R Stars: Jane Widdop, Jess McLeod, Joel McHale, Katharine Isabelle, William B. Davis, Justin Long, Aiden Howard, Erin Boyes, Sean Depner, Zenia Marshall, Jason Fernandes, Hana Huggins, Cassandra Naud Writer: Michael Kennedy Director: Tyler MacIntyre Distributor: RLJE Films/Shudder Release Date: November 10, 2023 (theatrical) What if the celebrated 1946 Christmas film IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE were also SCREAM? That’s not as impossible a mashup as it perhaps sounds. IT’S A WONDERFUL KNIFE proves the point. In IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE (for those who need a refresher), despondent Bedford Falls resident George Bailey (James Stewart) wishes he’d never been born. […]Read On »

PERPETRATOR movie poster | ©2023 Shudder

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Kiah McKirnan, Melanie Liburd, Ireon Roach, Casimere Jolette, Tim Hopper, Josh Bywater, Audrey Francis, Sasha Kuznetsov, Christopher Lowell, Alicia Silverstone Writer: Jennifer Reeder Director: Jennifer Reeder Distributor: Shudder Release Date: September 1, 2023 (theatrical, Shudder) PERPETRATOR is an uncommonly bloody film. That’s not so much because of violence-related gore – there is some, but it’s not excessive by horror standards – as due to the novel mythmaking of writer/director Jennifer Reeder. In the opening, we see the point of view of a masked stalker pursuing a young woman. This is intercut with footage of less-than-clean surgical […]Read On »

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Cassandra Naud, Emily Tennant, Rory J. Saper, Sara Canning, Paul Spurrier, Justin Sams Writers: Kurtis David Harder & Tesh Guttikonda Director: Kurtis David Harder Distributor: Shudder Release Date: May 26, 2023 INFLUENCER begins with a shot of what looks like a small forested island. The island looks larger as we zoom in on a young woman lying face-down on the beach. Who is this, and how did she get here? Flash back to Madison (Emily Tennant), a young travel vlogger in Thailand, whose online persona is having a much better time than she is. Madison’s boyfriend […]Read On »



ATTACHMENT movie poster | ©2023 Shudder

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Josephine Park, Ellie Kendrick, Sofie Gråbøl, David Dencik Writer: Gabriel Bier Gislason Director: Gabriel Bier Gislason Distributor: Shudder Release Date: February 9, 2023 (Shudder) From movies like THE EXORCIST to THE CONJURING franchise to this week’s release CONSECRATION, Catholicism still gets the lion’s share of horror movie attention. However, with 2012’s THE POSSESSION, 2021’s THE VIGIL, and this year’s THE OFFERING, among others, Jewish lore is getting some screen time, too. ATTACHMENT (NATTEN HAR BJINE), directed and written by Gabriel Bier Gislason, is the newest entry in this horror subgenre. It’s a slow burn, but a […]Read On »



SKINAMARINK movie poster | ©2023 IFC Midnight/Shudder

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Lucas Paul, Dali Rose Tetreault, Ross Paul, Jaime Hill Writer: Kyle Edward Ball Director: Kyle Edward Ball Distributor: IFC Midnight/Shudder Release Date: January 13, 2023 (theatrical); February 2, 2023 (Shudder) Evaluating SKINAMARINK properly probably requires someone far better versed than this reviewer is in experimental cinema, and/or slow cinema. There is indeed a genre known as slow cinema, which is pretty much what it sounds like. There are static shots; there is repetition; plots are sketchy, if they exist at all. This is intentional, to put the viewer in a state where they can experience the […]Read On »
