Rating: R Stars: Elijah Wood, Stephen McHattie, Martin Donovan, Madeleine Sami, Garfield Wilson, Michael Smiley Writer: Toby Harvard, idea by Ant Timpson Director: Ant Timpson Distributor: Saban Films Release Date: February 7, 2020 COME TO DADDY is the kind of movie that causes a reviewer to think long and hard about how difficult it is to complete a movie and secure distribution. These things are no small achievement, and filmmakers who reach this finish line deserve congratulations. With this in mind, it should be noted that COME TO DADDY is shrewdly cast, very well-acted, and has clever twists, great production […]Read On »

KILL LIST movie poster | ©2012 IFC

Rating: Unrated Stars: Neil Maskell, Michael Smiley, MyAnna Buring, Emma Fryer, Harry Simpson, Struan Rodger Writers: Ben Wheatley & Amy Jump Director: Ben Wheatley Distributor: IFC Midnight Release Date: VOD January 4, 2012; theatrical February 3, 2012 There are great things, good things and unfortunate things about KILL LIST.
