    The Darkness 2016

    Watched 29 Jun, 2016

    Quick Hit: Greg McLean's The Darkness doesn't rest its laurels on being a mind-numbingly incompetent film. It certainly fits that description, but then it decides to up the ante by being offensive at the same time. The story is a garden-variety horror version of Mad Libs: Happy family goes to (location) "the Grand Canyon" and the (person) "autistic son" picks up a (cursed item) "set of demonically-infused rocks rocks" which threaten to (danger) "open a portal to Hell."

    Green Room 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 28 Jun, 2016

    Quick Hit: A lean, streamlined film that takes no prisoners, Green Room is as effective a horror thriller as we've seen in the past few years. Patrick Stewart, Anton Yelchin and Imogen Poots lead a fantastic cast through a story that is doesn't go in for an overly complex story and instead focuses successfully on the effective execution of both plot and characters. Jeremy Saulnier delivers once again with one hell of a thrill ride.

George Miller is as good as he's ever been behind the camera with this intense experience that turns many elements of the action genre on its head. The acting is top-notch -- including from…

    The Cabin in the Woods 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 20 Apr, 2012 1

    Being that I am an entertainment reporter, it is very rare that I can go into a film knowing almost nothing about it. Before 2012, the last time I was able to do so was Cloverfield; with Cabin in the Woods however I was determined to do so. I had heard much about the struggle to get the film released, of course--filmed by Drew Goddard based on a script by Joss Whedon and himself, delayed to do 3D post-conversion and…
