Exclusive Interview: Penny Lane on Hail Satan?

I did not expect Hail Satan? to be my favorite movie of Sundance, but that’s usually how it works. I walked into Hail Satan? with an open mind, and when it ended I had to talk to director Penny Lane. ...

The Curse of La Llorona Review – La Lloroh No!

The Curse of La Llorona does the same sort of set pieces all the other Conjuringverse movies do, so fans of Annabelle and The Nun will probably enjoy this too. It’s better than the first Annabelle but...

Surviving the Game 25th Anniversary – Most Dangerous Game: SVU

The Most Dangerous Game is a great premise for an action movie but there’s never been a great movie based on it. Hard Target has moments but you can still imagine what John Woo could’ve done with it u...

You know me, I’d rather watch Pet Sematary 3 than a remake of Pet Sematary, but in a way Pet Sematary 2019 can be both. If it were really up to me, Pet Sematary 3 would have come out in the ‘90s and w...

Long Shot Movie Review: Vote For Women Step In Time

Long Shot is being advertised as the love story where schlubby Seth Rogen gets to date glamorous Charlize Theron. That standard rom-com premise is actually a misdirect for a poignant commentary on pol...
