Rating: R Stars: Chrissy Metz, Annalise Basso, Scout Taylor-Compton, Connor Paolo Writer: Shannon Wells Director: Damien LeVeck Distributor: Well Go USA Entertainment Release Date: December 8, 2023 For most of its running time, A CREATURE WAS STIRRING is a crazy horror delight, with surprises galore, as well as some potent metaphors. Then, alas, director Damien LeVeck and writer Shannon Wells put in one twist too many. It’s Christmas in Louisville, Kentucky. Faith (Chrissy Metz), a nurse and single mom, is tending to her twentysomething daughter Charm (Annalise Basso). Charm is suffering from much more than a normal ailment, and is […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Ayicia Debnam-Carey, William Moseley, Connor Paolo, Brit Morgan, Brooke Markham, Sean Marquette, Liesl Ahlers, Shashawnee Hall, Nicholas Pauling Writers: Matthew Ballen & Phillip Koch & Simon Verhoeven Director: Simon Verhoeven Distributor: Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures Release Date: September 22, 2017 Not to be confused with 2015’s UNFRIENDED, the new movie FRIEND REQUEST is a tale of quasi-online horror. It has one idea about characterization that’s so good that it somewhat excuses lapses in logic. Directed by Simon Verhoeven from a screenplay he wrote with Matthew Ballen & Phillip Koch, FRIEND REQUEST begins with a college classroom announcement […]Read On »

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Michael Foley Director: Bobby Roth Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 9 p.m. Original Telecast: November 4, 2012 I must confess, there are parts of REVENGE that I am just not getting, probably because there’s just too much story to keep track of. I’m serious. It’s bad when scenes are moving so quickly that I can’t even get a note written (in short-hand) before the next scene starts going.

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Nick Damici, Connor Paolo, Danielle Harris, Sean Nelson, Michael Cerveris Writers: Nick Damici and Jim Mickle Director: Jim Mickle Distributor: IFC Films Release Date: April 22, 2011 STAKE LAND works on some basic levels – one can reasonably go into this post-apocalyptic horror movie expecting action and blood and be rewarded with plenty of both. An added bonus is some really gorgeous cinematography by Ryan Samul, which makes us feel like we really are somewhere bleak and abandoned, yet weirdly beautiful. In STAKE LAND, adolescent Martin (Connor Paolo) sees his family slaughtered by vampires, but he […]Read On »
