Poster for City of Ember

City of Ember

3.3

Fun, with a bit too much fluff, not enough substance and far too abrupt an ending.

The First Date

7.5

Quick and gets right to the point… of the KNIFE!

The Boy

4.2

No one can say that The Boy is going to get many points for originality, but I did really like the setting of the story.

Air Bud

Disney and a basketball playing dog somehow warm my heart.

Poster for The Burrowers

The Burrowers

7.5

Practical effects lead this western into some dark corners of American history.

Poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp

Ant-Man and the Wasp

7.5

Never reaching farther than saccharine, the film somehow manages to maintain likeability without much of a plot besides that of a chessboard.

Poster for What Was Lost

What Was Lost

7.5

Varied tonal output but some solid writing and acting carry this short across the finish line.

Poster for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

4.2

The only think that I’m afraid of is that Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom started to fray that line too much, because the movie is totally bonkers, and not always in a good way.

Beauty Queen

6.7

All in all, I thought this one was pretty good, despite the technical difficulties.

About what you’d expect.

Poster for The Strangers: Prey at Night

The Strangers: Prey at Night

2.5

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

Poster for Grave of the Fireflies

Grave of the Fireflies

10

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

Hold the Dark

5.8

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

Poster for Urban Myth: Nest

Urban Myth: Nest

10

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.

Something in the Darkness

4.2

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.

Poster for The Candlelight Witch

The Candlelight Witch

7.5

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.

Poster for Post Mortem Mary

Post Mortem Mary

9.1

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

Poster for The Whistler

The Whistler

5

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

The Exam

5

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

Who Decides

7.5

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

7.5

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.

2018.11.08

2018

Cabin Killer

9.1

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

3.3

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.

2018

And the Baby Screamed

6.7

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