An example of an homage that adds little else to the picture or story.

Devastatingly real and tragic, this story shows the hidden cost of war.

Bleak and powerful, but lacking in execution of overall story despite strong individual moments and performances.

I’m not going to spoil any of the twist but I will say it hits like a hammer to the head. I loved this film, it was the best one of the night.

The film just doesn’t seem to have much going for it, and it gives away everything that’s going to happen far too quickly.

The Candlelight Witch

8

This film, though a bit reliant on jump scares, has one of the best spooks of the night. It’s some great effects and great make-up to make the Candlelight Witch too.

Oh my the scares. Long has perfect timing, allowing the camera to linger just long enough that you focus on the wrong thing.

The Whistler

I think if the film was dragged out, we might get a halfway decent horror film out of it.

The Exam

Technically, it’s a very polished film, but otherwise, I didn’t find anything about this that was overly above average.

Who Decides

8

This short is simple and to the point, and I like that. I especially liked the performances between the two actresses Jenny O’Hara and Addison Eckert.

Rainmaker

I really loved Cronyn’s performance. She was one of the clear highlights of the short, with her performance ranging all over the emotional map without missing a beat.

Cabin Killer

It’s a lot of fun, while still managing to have enough vestiges of horror that you get a chill or two.

Relax, It's Probably Just a Parasite

3

It’s an almost experimental piece. I don’t necessarily understand the connection between the words and the animation – in the end, I would have rather lived without the words.

And the Baby Screamed

I liked the effects, and I liked the way it slowly built to the climatic moment.

I thought it was sweet and hit all the right notes. The acting is tremendous, particularly from Peter Kurth, who was my favorite character.

The Last Fiction

The film is really fun, despite its slightly predictive plot. There’s something to be said about diving into a plot that is simply good versus bad.

In the Wake of Ire

Overcomes some iffy dialogue to become an affecting emotional piece.

Social commentary mixed up with a Syrian superhero leads to a mixed bag.

Dark and twisty inside, but fumbles the ending a bit.

While no one would describe this as a good movie, there are portions of it that are watchable, and the ideas in place are solid.

A short film gets stretched to its limits in this Netflix zombie film.

This monster movie is perfectly crafted with humor and scares amid tensions of reality.
