    Doctor Strange

    Backdrop placeholder

    3 Stars (out of 5) Doctor Strange offers ephemeral entertainment.

  2. 21 Nov 2016

    Sagebrush Trail

    Backdrop placeholder

    3 Stars (out of 5) The underwater scenes in Sagebrush Trail belie its shoestring budget.

  3. 14 Nov 2016

    The Sentinel

    Backdrop placeholder

    3 Stars (out of 5) Chris Sarandon saves The Sentinel from its own excess.

  4. 07 Nov 2016

    Curse of the Demon

    Backdrop placeholder

    4 Stars (out of 5) A producer's meddling keeps Curse of the Demon from perfection.

  5. 31 Oct 2016

    Torso

    Backdrop placeholder

    4 Stars (out of 5) Torso executes a generic plot with panache.

  6. 24 Oct 2016

    The Pit

    Backdrop placeholder

    3 Stars (out of 5) The Pit careens between laughable and disturbing.

  7. 17 Oct 2016

    Phantasm

    Backdrop placeholder

    4 Stars (out of 5) I was still watching Saturday morning cartoons and struggling with cursive writing when I first saw Phantasm. It traumatized me.

  8. 10 Oct 2016

    Mars Attacks!

    Backdrop placeholder

    3 Stars (out of 5) Mars Attacks! could have been awful but settles for mediocre.

  9. 03 Oct 2016

    Riders of Destiny

    Backdrop placeholder

    2 Stars (out of 5) Riders of Destiny is not a good movie, but it is an important one.

  10. 26 Sep 2016

    The Witch

    Backdrop placeholder

    5 Stars (out of 5) The Witch gets better with each viewing.

  11. 19 Sep 2016

    Ride Him, Cowboy

    Backdrop placeholder

    2 Stars (out of 5) In Ride Him, Cowboy, a town puts a horse on trial for attempted murder. This may not be the film's most ridiculous scene.

  12. 12 Sep 2016

    Don't Breathe

    Backdrop placeholder

    2 Stars (out of 5) The more I think about Don't Breathe, the less I like it.

  13. 05 Sep 2016

    Haunted Gold

    Backdrop placeholder

    1 Star (out of 5) I like John Wayne, but I struggled with Haunted Gold.

  14. 29 Aug 2016

    Suicide Squad

    Backdrop placeholder

    1 Star (out of 5) You'd think an ancient demon threatening armageddon would be hard to forget, but Suicide Squad proves otherwise.

  15. 19 Aug 2016

    The Killer Nun

    Backdrop placeholder

    2 Stars (out of 5) For a nunsploitation picture, boredom is a cardinal sin.

  16. 17 Feb 2016

    Chain Lightning

    Backdrop placeholder

    2 Stars (out of 5) The skin-tight flight suit is a bridge too far.

  17. 06 Feb 2016

    Black Mass

    Backdrop placeholder

    2 Stars (out of 5) Based on a true story, Black Mass sees Johnny Depp made up as a balding and paunchy James “Whitey” Bulger. The film follows Bulger’s ascent from small-time hood to crime-lord of South Boston. A journey made possible by the FBI.

  18. 25 Nov 2015

    The House That Dripped Blood

    Backdrop placeholder

    3 Stars (out of 5) Reviewing anthology movies is hard. I picture you, dear reader, trudging through endless paragraphs of plot synopsis and I feel guilty. I have let you down.
