    Moderate successes for one film shouldn't necessarily mean translating on over to a sequel, and I don't want anyone getting their panties in a twist over this review, but after watching THE INVOKING 2 from the collaborative directing efforts of (you ready for this)? Jamie DeWolf, Jay Holben, Corey Norman, Adam O'Brien, Patrick Rea, and Jamie Root, I'll offer up that aside from a surely painstaking workload (hell, there are an even greater number of writers ...
  2. Toronto After Dark Film Festival Announces First 10 Films

    The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is still one day away from being in our rear-view mirror, but that doesn’t stop our heart from pumping extra blood in the excitement of our favorite festival of the calendar year – The Toronto After Dark Film Festival (TADFF).

    Yes, it’s hard to believe that we choose a festival that plays films such as Zombeavers and Deathgasm over a more recognizable fest that is usually a precursor for the year’s Academy Award nominations. Still, ...

    A Toyota Prius amongst Lamborghinis, a poodle amongst pit bulls, a creepy guy hanging out in the women’s lingerie section… OK, that last one may have been a bit uncomfortable to conceptualize, but the comparison I’m trying to make here is what out of each of the three examples doesn’t fit? Much like his performances in the past that have personified the evil, stone-faced looking guy you would most likely avoid in the street late at night, Bill Oberst, ...
  5. TIFF Review: Green Room

    I’ll admit it – Green Room wasn’t so much on my list of movies to screen at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) as it was just a film that fit my schedule. Searching for a film to fill a gap in my schedule after Sicario and before Black Mass, I swept up tickets to the screening more due to convenience than interest.
