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 »

Rating: R Stars: Alexandra Daddario, Amy Forsyth, Keean Johnson, Maddie Hasson, Johnny Knoxville, Logan Miller, Austin Swift, Allison McAtee Writer: Alan Trezza Director: Marc Meyers Distributor: Saban Films Release Date: (VOD and Digital) April 10, 2020 At the risk of being spoilery, but to save viewers seeking something specific from not receiving it, let’s state up front that WE SUMMON THE DARKNESS is not supernatural. Nothing gets summoned. That said, there’s plenty of gore and craziness. There is also what seems to be a bent toward black comedy that exists here more in theory than in fact. We are in […]Read On »

In ABC’s drama FOR LIFE, on Tuesday nights in its first season, Nicholas Pinnock plays wrongly convicted prison inmate Aaron Wallace.

Like Wright, Aaron gets a law degree and begins defending other prisoners who are either altogether innocent or have disproportionate sentences. Aaron’s driving force, however, is trying to exonerate himself in order to get back to his wife and daughter. Indira Varma plays prison warden Safiya Masry, who is […]Read On »
