    Incarnation

    ★★

    All premise, and doesn’t add enough to its premise to sustain its own length. People throw this accusation at a lot of films, but this really does feel like a short. It needed far more character work for this story to be a feature. You can’t live on premise alone.

  • Skinned Deep

    Skinned Deep

    ★★½

    They say you can’t set out to make a cult film, but damned if this doesn’t try. The problem is that this movie is one note, played loud and long, which becomes more monotonous than gleeful. Still, if you have a penchant for early Peter Jackson or Frank Henenloter films, you’ll find something to love.
