Movie Review: THE VISITOR

THE VISITOR movie review | ©2022 Paramount Pictures

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Finn Jones, Jessica McNamee, Thomas Francis Murphy, Dane Rhodes, Donna Biscoe Writers: Adam Mason & Simon Boyes Director: Justin P. Lange Distributor: Paramount/Epix Release Date: October 7, 2022 THE VISITOR is a moderately well-done what’s-going-on-here horror movie. It is well-acted, nicely atmospheric and has an intriguing set-up. However, THE VISITOR doesn’t seem to know where to go once the big reveal happens. It continues, but ends with more of a whimper than a bang. Londoner Robert Burrows (Finn Jones) and his wife, Maia Eden (Jessica McNamee), move back to Maia’s childhood home in the small U.S. […]Read On »

There’s a short sharp shock opening, and then we’re at Chapter 1, “The Boogeywoman.” Sarah (Belle Adams) and Simon (Ian Michaels) are a nice young couple, having supper at a nice restaurant. Sarah is pregnant. She notices an older woman (Marina Parodi) staring menacingly across the room at her. Then the woman […]Read On »

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Odessa A’zion, Leslie Bibb, Dermot Mulroney, Lizze Broadway, Jackson Dean Vincent, Mary Buss, Michael Cooper Jr. Writer: Kevin Bachar Director: Jerren Lauder Distributor: Lionsgate Release Date: October 7, 2022 Just when horror fans might be forgiven for wondering whether scary movies will ever again feature characters who behave reasonably, along comes THE INHABITANT. This isn’t to oversell THE INHABITANT, which is a decently-executed ghostly possession movie. It’s just a relief to be able to invest in people who react in ways that make sense. A series of title cards over historical photos set the scene for […]Read On »

Russell Director: David O. Russell Distributor: 20th Century Studios Release Date: October 7, 2022 Writer/director David O. Russell likes riffing on history, large-scale and small. He took on the Gulf War in THREE KINGS (1999), a ‘70s FBI scheme and con artists in AMERICAN HUSTLE (2013), and Home Shopping Network staple Joy Mangano in JOY (2015).

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Joseph Almani, Karlee Eldridge, Michael Paré, Elena Sahagun, Gar-Ye Lee, Christopher Dukes Writer: Tricia Aurand Director: Dale Fabrigar Distributor: Well Go USA Release Date: October 4, 2022 (digital and home video) Director Dale Fabrigar, writer Tricia Aurand, and actor Joseph Almani take a bold swing with THEY CRAWL BENEATH. Not too many horror movies can pull off what’s mostly a one-man, one-set show. While there are a few other locations and some supporting cast members, THEY CRAWL BENEATH takes place mostly in the garage of an isolated residence in Barstow, California. Almani’s character, police officer Danny […]Read On »
