  • Raze 2013

    ★★★ Watched 19 Jul, 2014

    Not as mean-spirited as its concept suggests, Raze is by no means a great movie but gets by on its exploitation roots and some very solid acting considering the genre. Co-writer/director Josh C. Waller did the film a favor by treating the film as seriously as it would be if it was about men in the same situation. The film is an exploitation film but it isn't exactly exploitative in the sense that a similar film would be. The movie…

    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…
