  1. Film Festival Movie Review: "Fraud" (2016)

    A couple (and their young child) live a life beyond their means, putting them in a desperate spot. What will they do and what is the aftermath?

    “Fraud” is one of those films that makes me uncomfortable. Not because the material in the film is controversial, but because I tend to respect the old saying about only speaking nicely or keeping your mouth shut. And, unfortunately, this just does not give me much to work with if I want to be strictly nice.

    One might say it ...

  2. Film Festival Movie Review: "She's Allergic to Cats" (2016)

    Michael Pinkney (playing himself) is a man struggling with his lower income lifestyle in the shadow of the film industry. His job is degrading, his home is infested with rats and his mind constantly wanders into a lo-fi dreamscape that mirrors his analog video experiments.

    “She’s Allergic to Cats” comes to us from writer-director Michael Reich, who previously co-directed “Video Town” with star Pinkney. We also have Sonja Kinski (“Holidays”) as the romantic lead, as much as this film ...
  3. Film Festival Movie Review: "68 Kill" (2017)

    Chip Taylor's girlfriend Liza had the perfect plan to rip off her rich sugar daddy. It should have been an easy in and out kind of deal.

    Let’s start by discussing the cast. Matthew Gray Gubler is perfectly cast as “sad sack” ...
  4. Film Review: "House on Willow Street" (2016)

    After a young woman is kidnapped, her captors soon come to realize that in fact they may be the ones in danger and this young woman has a dark secret inside her.

    Horror is the genre of subgenres. We already had the "home invasion" subgenre, but it seems like it might be time to create a new one: the subgenre of "reverse break-ins". In the last few years, there have been a handful of films involving houses getting broken into, only to have the tables turned on the ...
  5. Film Review: "The Dark Below" (2015)

    A woman (Lauren Mae Shafer) struggles for survival beneath a frozen lake while a metrosexual killer (David G. B. Brown) stalks her from the surface and we slowly find out they are not strangers.

    The mad genius behind this film is writer-producer-director Douglas Schulze, who has been a rising force in the world of indie horror. But although we tend to associate a film mostly with the director, Jonathan D'Ambrosio really deserves as much credit for "Dark Below", with his ...
