Rating: R Stars: Mia Goth, Jenna Ortega, Brittany Snow, Scott Mescudi, Martin Henderson, Owen Campbell, Stephen Ure Writer: Ti West Director: Ti West Distributor: A24 Release Date: March 18, 2022 X is director Ti West’s blend of drama, comedy, horror and moviemaking about moviemaking. He succeeds in being disturbing and almost heartbreaking before X backs off and turns more comic and conventional. In a wraparound sequence, we’re with law enforcement as they examine a very bloody crime scene. We then flash back to twenty-four hours earlier. We’re in 1979 Houston, Texas, where employees of a burlesque club are all too […]Read On »

But it’s one thing to rattle the nerves, and another to truly frighten the listener. With subtlety, and melody becoming many since-deceased composers like Bernard Herrmann and Jerry Goldsmith, a young musical Turk named Jeff Grace is successively scaring the hell out of us with more of a whisper than a scream, even if he might not have his predecessor’s orchestral resources.

Rating: R Stars: Sara Paxton, Pat Healy, Kelly McGillis Writer: Ti West Director: Ti West Distributor: Magnet Releasing Release Date: VOD, December 30, 2011; theatrical, February 3, 2012 Probably the most important aspect of THE INNKEEPERS is that it is effectively scary.
