Somewhere in some secret movie exec roll-a-dex is a coffee stained card containing an algorithm for creating fringe horror concepts to fill the never ending supply of the grocery store DVD bargain bins. That card was dusted off recently to at least assemble Sergio Sánchez's debut feature, Marrowbone; a slow-burn family chiller combining a flurry of shiny cinematic tools, but lacking the heart and soul to make its spooky aspirations come to life.

Nothing says “summer blockbuster” like adventures, explosions, and a hunky leading guy and sassy leading lady. And nothing says “summertime review of a summer blockbuster” like that review being posted after the movie is already out of theaters. For those of you who are still dying to read a hot take, though, I didn’t want to leave you hangin’!

Editor's Note: What follows is a critical analysis of Unsane as well as a personal account of one of our writer's experiences with mental illness.


Hurt is a film in the same vein as The Strangers, claiming to be based on true events. Yet seeing as how multiple attempts to find anything matching the events in the film proved fruitless we're just going to have to take their word for it. Like its quiet stalk and slash ilk, the "true events" tag may just be a slasher twist on a ripped from the headlines story, or a means to artificially inject a sense of dread into the structure of modern domestic lifestyles.

Did you ever watch Home Alone and think to yourself, what if Harry and Marv were super creepy and angry pedophiles who instead of wanting to make a quick score from empty rich people's houses had more nefarious goals? Well, do I have the movie for you.

What is there to say about a sequel to WolfCop? Quite frankly, if you saw and liked WolfCop, then there's really nothing that should keep you from tracking down Another WolfCop. If you slightly hated the first, then you already know what to do here. I suppose, this is the kind of review for those who were indifferent or on the fence if they even wanted to invest their time into catching up with the WolfCopiverse. 

At this place in genre cinema the haunted house film requires unique perspective from filmmakers. We can always hope a director has a some stylish or narrative trickery up their sleeve. The Witch in the Window doesn't have either of those things, at least not in an original or unpredictable way.

Since horror movies about our digital lives are all the rage now it seems about damn time that one finally come down the pike that channels Black Mirror almost to a fault. This time instead of rolling our eyes at the problems of stuffy teenagers Cam introduces us to the oft maligned profession of a Cam Girl. So, ya know, maybe don't bring the kids to this one.

A title should never be the one defining reason you choose to see a movie. Something as specific and bizarre as The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot is just so out there it would be hard for anyone to resist curiosity. Let me be the first to tell you that Robert D. Krzykowski's debut feature is not what it appears to be.
