'The Pool' (2018) Review: A Crocodile Egg on the Face of Entertainment

The Pool had a crazy buzz at Fantastic Fest, but took almost another year to be widely available for American audiences. It's cheap, poorly written, and amateurishly acted. The low grade CGI crocodile is absolutely the highlight.

"The Lighthouse" (2019) - Review

If you’re the type of horror buff that enjoys the theory-crafting aspect of filmmaking, then you’ll be extremely entertained by this film. If not, then you might think this film is, as my wonderful significant other stated, “whack.”

7500-movie-review

"7500" Movie Review

Though marketed as a somewhat cheesy, Liam Neeson-esque thriller, writer-director Patrick Vollrath’s debut 7500 (streaming free on Amazon Prime) has a surprisingly decent amount of heft to it and is anchored by yet another rock-solid performance from Joseph Gordon-Levitt. One of the more vastly ...

"Earthquake Bird" Movie Review

Buried somewhere under the foundation of the latest throw-away Netflix thriller is a halfway-decent, moody suspense flick. The problem is, it’s buried so deep that no one can even begin to know it’s there, much less find it. And, after only ten or so minutes of watching Earthquake Bird, it’s ...
