Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com

Army of the Dead

Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum

  • Excerpt: Army Of The Dead succeeds as a whole because it’s a very thrilling, enjoyable, and pulpy action-horror picture that is as unabashedly weird and idiosyncratic as it is operatic and indulgent.

Army of the Dead

Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews

  • Excerpt: Somewhere in this very long movie, there’s a decent zombie flick.

At Night Comes Wolves

James Jay Edwards @ The Big Smoke America

Deliver Us from Evil

Ed Travis @ Cinapse

Drunk Bus

Dennis Schwartz @ Dennis Schwartz Reviews

  • Excerpt: In its deeper moments it’s a film about finding yourself.

The Dry

Matt Oakes @

  • Excerpt: A detective reckons with his past to sort out a murder-suicide involving his childhood best friend in this salty, straight-faced Australian thriller. Eric Bana is solid if unremarkable.

Enfant Terrible

Andrea Chase @ KillerMovieReviews.com

  • Excerpt: All the contradictory elements are here in Masucci’s intense and terrifying performance, and by keeping all the action not only indoors, but also on sets that are purposefully artificial, there is a sense that we are watching Fassbender’s life pass before his eyes as he died at only 37.

Equal Standard

Final Account

Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com

  • Excerpt: There are so many smiles of deflection and quick answers feigning ignorance because these men and women have probably needed to lie to themselves in order to survive.

Into the Darkness

Jared Mobarak @ The Film Stage

  • Excerpt: Instead of caring about where this family ends up when the dust settles, [this film] seeks to highlight the complexities inherent to breathing that dust in without reprieve.

Killer Concept

Eddie Pasa @ DC Filmdom

  • Excerpt: Killer Concept joins Driven as another enjoyable treat from Glenn Payne and Casey Dillard.

The Mauritanian

James Jay Edwards @ The Big Smoke America

Oxygen

Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews

  • Excerpt: Mélanie Laurent deserves to be a bigger star.

P!nk: All I Know So Far

Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie

  • Excerpt: Pink did not choose between global superstardom and motherhood. Watch tens of thousands of people scream while Pink juggles acrobatics, diapers, and bedtime routines.

Plan B

Jared Mobarak @ The Film Stage

  • Excerpt: [Verma and Moroles’] comedic timing is only outdone by their authentic, heartfelt terror about the unknown.

The Retreat

C.H. Newell @ Father Son Holy Gore

  • Excerpt: The Retreat holds real terror and true horrors. It’s the embodiment of so many anxieties us queers feel when we’re watching these backwoods slasher-type films, let alone when actually being in the middle of the woods.

Sator

James Jay Edwards @ The Big Smoke America

Test Pattern

Two Lottery Tickets

Andrea Chase @ KillerMovieReviews.com

  • Excerpt: This sly and charming story meanders along making its point about cinema and human nature with nary a trace of pretension, nor a pandering nod to political correctness.

Two Lottery Tickets

Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum

  • Excerpt: It’s the kind of comedy that works because it taps into a reality that many people experience. Many moments had me laughing out loud thanks to the performances and the sharp writing from Paul Negoescu.

Two Lottery Tickets

Andrew Wyatt @ The Lens
