REVIEW: The Horror (2015)

– By Dave Dubrow

The independent film The Horror has good things going for it: stark, frozen landscapes; a story that achingly plays itself out through reminiscences in a therapist’s office; a brother-sister relationship that’s almost-but-not-quite creepy. Unfortunately, these elements… Continue reading

REVIEW: Jump (2015)

– By Chris Barnes

Back in 1981, An American Werewolf In London had unprepared cinema goers laughing heartily one second and jumping out of their seats in terror the next.
