Spoiler Free Review of The Forest

The Forest felt like it squandered a lot of potential. It’s a movie that felt as if it really could have been scary if handled differently. Natalie Dormer played twin sisters, a wild-child school teacher (Jess) who went missing from her teaching post in…

Krampus Was Nice, But The Director Was Naughty

THIS CRITIQUE CONTAINS MULTIPLE MAJOR SPOILERS FOR THE MOVIE KRAMPUS, INCLUDING THE ENDING. ************************************* Michael Dougherty’s Krampus was an excellent concept that stumbled on execution, due in large part to the ending. It was a film I really wanted to love, and it was…

The Black Tapes Podcast Is Fearfully Delicious

I have to state up front that The Black Tapes isn’t a podcast best listened to while browsing, gaming, or multitasking. I tried to get into this podcast several times and failed before I fell completely and utterly in love with it.  Finally I…

Spoiler-Free Review of Paranormal Activity 4

Paranormal Activity 4 would probably have been more satisfying as a stand-alone movie. As the fourth installment of a series, with the other films leading up to this conclusion (in the promotional poster’s own words, no less), it left a lot to be desired….
