    The Shop on Main Street

    ★★★★½

    Devastating, resonant and timeless. A cowardly man finds the conscience to acknowledge a great evil in front of him, then reckons with its tug-of-war against self preservation.

    ★★★★½

    Absolutely a top three WTF movie for me. It might even be #1. The effects are cheap, but the sheer imagination behind them leaves the desired impact for the most part. It’s a perfect midnight movie.

    ★★★

    Christie handles herself well, considering she’s acting opposite clumsy robotics with Robert Vaughn’s disembodied voice for nearly the entire movie. A bit heavy on the 2001 flushes. Overall, a bizarre (and grossly creepy at times) AI-gone-rogue horror story.

    ★★★½

    Not exactly what I was expecting, both for better and for worse. It’s not the wall to wall action flick I was gearing up for but it did have a delicious B-movie flavor throughout, and the ending actually nailed the potential of its premise in a pretty ballsy way. Some choppiness in the editing department and a couple strained performances aside, a solid feature.
