Movie Review: THE FRIENDSHIP GAME

THE FRIENDSHIP GAME | ©2022 RLJE Films

Rating: Not rated Stars: Peyton List, Brendan Meyer, Kelcey Mawema, Kaitlyn Santa Juana, Dylan Schombing, Miriam Smith Writer: Damien Ober Director: Scooter Corkle Distributor: RLJE Films Release Date: November 11, 2022 In THE FRIENDSHIP GAME, the title refers to both a pastime and an actual object. The latter is a bowling ball-sized device that looks like a cross between a huge twelve-sided dice and the Lament Configuration. Friends Zoosa (Peyton List) and Cotton (Kaitlyn Santa Juana), in the summer between high school and college, come across the Friendship Game at a lawn sale. They are mourning to prospect of separation […]Read On »

YOU RESEMBLE ME movie poster | ©2022 Willa Productions

Rating: Not rated Stars: Lorenza Grimaudo, Illona Grimaudo, Mouna Soualem, Sabrina Ouazani, Dina Amer, Sana Sri, Alexandre Gonin, Djino Grimaudo, Nassima Benchicou Writers: Dina Amer & Omar Mullick Director: Dina Amer Distributor: Willa Productions/Vice Studios Release Date: November 11, 2022 “What kind of person does these things?” someone asks about a terrorist. YOU RESEMBLE ME is here to provide one answer. It is a singular answer, not even attempting to cover all possible responses, but a convincing one. The real Hasna Ait Boulahcen was twenty-six years old when she died in an explosion in Paris, France in November, 2015. At […]Read On »

Movie Review: TERRIFIER 2

TERRIFIER 2 movie poster | ©2022 Cinedigm

Rating: Not rated Stars: Lauren LaVera, David Howard Thornton, Elliott Fullam, Sarah Voigt, Kailey Hyman, Casey Hartnett, Charlie McElveen, Samantha Scaffidi, Chris Jericho, Amelie McLain Writer: Damien Leone Director: Damien Leone Distributor: Cinedigm (theatrical), Screambox (VOD), Bloody Disgusting (all media) Release Date: October 6, 2022 The original 2016 TERRIFIER is a brisk hour and twenty-five minutes. Its new sequel, TERRIFIER 2, is two hours and eighteen minutes long. Since most slasher horror films don’t run that long, this makes TERRIFIER 2 an immediate oddity. Both TERRIFIER and TERRIFIER 2 are the epitome of hardcore slashers. It’s understandable why neither one […]Read On »

Movie Review: NOCEBO

NOCEBO movie poster | ©2022 RLJE Entertainment

Rating: Not rated Stars: Eva Green, Mark Strong, Chai Fonacier, Billie Gadson Writer: Garret Shanley Director: Lorcan Finnegan Distributor: RLJE Entertainment Release Date: November 4, 2022 (theatrical); November 22, 2022 (on demand and digital) NOCEBO is a remarkably good horror film that pulls off two difficult tasks. First, it successfully keeps us engrossed and in suspense as to exactly what will happen, even when we work out what’s happening and why. Second, it plays with our sympathies to a degree that is seldom achievable. When we meet Christine (Eva Green), she’s happy in everything. She’s in a loving marriage with […]Read On »

Then the two proceed to play cards. This turns out to be the basis for a study by Dr. Stevensen (Karen Gillan), a researcher who has, she says, developed a way to track souls into the afterlife. Her experiments bring her a stream of […]Read On »

Movie Review: SOFT & QUIET

SOFT & QUIET movie poster | ©2022 Momentum Pictures/Blumhouse/Shudder

Rating: R Stars: Stefanie Estes, Olivia Lucciardi, Dana Millican, Melissa Paulo, Eleanore Pienta, Cissy Ly, Jon Beavers, Jayden Leavitt, Shannon Mahoney, Rebekah Wiggins, Nina E. Jordan, Jovita Molina Writer: Beth de Araújo Director: Beth de Araújo Distributor: Momentum Pictures/Blumhouse/Shudder Release Date: November 4, 2022 For genuine, stomach-churning horror, Michael Myers, Pennywise the Clown, and the whole pantheon of the Cthulhu Mythos have nothing on the women of SOFT & QUIET. To be clear, kindergarten teacher Emily (Stefanie Estes) and her friends and acquaintances don’t have a single supernatural power between them. None of them are serial killers, part of a […]Read On »

Movie Review: GIRL AT THE WINDOW

GIRL AT THE WINDOW | ©2022 XYZ Films

Rating: R Stars: Radha Mitchell, Ella Newton, Vince Colosimo, Karis Oka, James Mackay, Andrew S. Gilbert, Sharon Johal, Lachie Millar, Jackson Gallagher Writers: Terrence Hammond and Nicolette Minster, story by Terrence Hammond Director: Mark Hartley Distributor: XYZ Films Release Date: November 4, 2022 Although there’s a maniac preying on young people in GIRL AT THE WINDOW, it’s not a slasher in the conventional sense. It’s more along the lines of a quasi-trapped young woman who knows there’s a serial killer next door, but can’t get anyone to believe her. The film begins strikingly, with adolescent Lian (Karis Oka). Lian is […]Read On »

Movie Review: DEMONS AT DAWN

DEMONS AT DAWN movie poster | ©2022 Black Coppice Films Ltd.

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Ben Silver, Amber Doig-Thorne, Amanda Himsworth, Chris Sanders, Crystal J. Huang, Jimmy “The Bee” Bennett, Jon-Paul Gates, John Altman, Michael Della Pia Writer: Chris Sanders Director: Randy Kent Distributor: Black Coppice Films Ltd. Release Date: October 28, 2022 DEMONS AT DAWN bears a passing kinship with 2012’s THE KILL LIST. Both movies feature working-class English hit men who take on jobs that put them in some very strange – indeed, supernatural – situations. THE KILL LIST had terrifically naturalistic dialogue and performances, but let the audience get a little too far ahead of the plot. DEMONS […]Read On »
