    The Outing

    ★★★★

    Permed hair with metallic scrunchies and denim overalls, blue and red gel lighting with sparks flying, smoke machines and interior wind gusts, snake attacks in bathtubs, fluorescent green eyeballs and blood splattered walls, and to top it all off, a magic lamp with an angry genie inside who has an axe to grind...Sign me the hell up.

With a simple story, subtle performances and some gorgeously captured locations to tie this ensemble drama together, Frankie is well worth the trip. Not to mention, it finishes with one of the most beautiful closing shots of 2019.

    What an absolute blast!

    A waterlogged, high-concept creature-feature that bathes comfortably in its crazy premise and then multiplies the gator-chomping action.

    Not since The Shallows has a Hollywood heroine kicked-ass like this…Blake, honey, I love you, but it seems like you may have met your match.
