Rating: Not Rated Stars: Jon Calloway, Abi Casson Thompson, Kate Lush, Heather Jackson, Richard D. Myers, Will Stanton, Hannah Ponting Writer: Scott Jeffrey Director: Rebecca J. Matthews Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment Release Date: June 9, 2020 THE CANDY WITCH has a title that suggests a tongue-in-cheek riff on Hansel and Gretel. Instead, it’s a fairly straight-faced English ghost story, with good jump scares and a pleasingly dark atmosphere. The film starts in Surrey, England, where we get a jolt and a preview of the haunting that will dominate the plot. Then the action moves to London, where we meet paranormal investigators […]Read On »

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Elyas M’Barek, Alexandra Maria Lara, Heiner Lauterbach, Manfred Zapatka, Franco Nero Writers: Christian Zubert & Robert Gold & Jens-Frederick Otto, based on the novel by Ferdinand von Schirach Director: Marco Kreuzpaintner Distributor: MPI Media Group Release Date: June 5, 2020 THE COLLINI CASE (DER FALL COLLINI) is set in Germany in 2001, with a few trips to Italy. In contemporary films, bringing together Germany and the year 2001 now seems to be code for a certain type of subject matter. With THE COLLINI CASE in particular, it might have been a good idea to acknowledge this […]Read On »

Movie Review: DREAMLAND

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Stephen McHattie, Henry Rollins, Juliette Lewis, Tomas Lemarquis, Guillaume Kerbusch, Lisa Houle, Themis Pauwels, Morgan Csarno-Peklar Writers: Tony Burgess and Patrick Whistler Director: Bruce McDonald Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment Release Date (theatrical, digital, VOD): June 5, 2020 DREAMLAND has on its side an impressive dual performance by Stephen McHattie, gorgeous production design by Eugenie Collet, superior style, and the pedigree of director Bruce McDonald, who made the excellent PONTYPOOL (also starring McHattie). However, if a movie is going to venture into the deep darkness of child sex trafficking, it better have a damn good reason for doing […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Elisabeth Moss, Michael Stuhlbarg, Odessa Young, Logan Lerman Writer: Sarah Gubbins, based on the novel by Susan Scarf Merrell Director: Josephine Decker Distributor: Neon Release Date: June 5, 2020 SHIRLEY is one of those movies where the title character turns out to be a supporting player, albeit in this case quite a forceful one. Based on Susan Scarf Merrell’s 2015 novel, SHIRLEY deals with real-life writer Shirley Jackson, who authored THE LOTTERY and THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE, to name two of her more influential works. Director Josephine Decker and screenwriter Sarah Gubbins introduce us to Shirley […]Read On »

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Mia Wasikowska, Damon Herriman, Benedict Hardy. Gillian Jones, Terry Norris, Brenda Palmer Writer: Mirrah Foulkes Director: Mirrah Foulkes Distributor: Samuel Goldwyn Films Release Date (select theaters, Hulu, VOD): June 5, 2020 JUDY & PUNCH is a movie that makes viewers feel like we’ve stumbled into an odd, secret realm, perhaps the historical edge of the Twilight Zone. Not full-blown fantasy or horror or comedy, but with elements of all three, it’s a beguiling display of folklore cinema. Director/writer Mirrah Foulkes gives us a spooky, once-upon-a-time opening to a tale set in the 16th-century landlocked town of […]Read On »
