Family (2018)

Kate Stone (Taylor Schilling, Orange Is the New Black) is career-focused. That's it. Nothing else. But she's become an outcast and lost from what's left of her family. When she's asked to babysit her niece Maddie, her life quite literally must change. Family isn't the expected family comedy/drama and that's probably why we enjoyed it so much. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49B9lEZu4Bg… Continue reading Family (2018)

In Fabric (2018)

I've often discussed the difference between grindhouse and arthouse. That line is quite easy to cross and hard to define at the same time. The films of Peter Strickland are great examples of movies that live between that division. From the revenge film Katalin Varga and the giallo-exploring Berberian Sound Studio to the Jess Franco homage The Duke… Continue reading In Fabric (2018)

HELLmington (2018)

Writer-directors Justin Hewitt-Drakulic and Alex Lee Williams created this film about the sleepy village of Hellmington, a place that Detective Samantha Woodhouse (Nicola Correia-Damude, The Strain) thought she left behind ten years ago. That said -- as much as you can never go home again, you probably shouldn't. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skWUGCGhVSg&feature=youtu.be All those years back, troubled high… Continue reading HELLmington (2018)

The Night Sitter (2018)

Executive produced by Final Destination creator Jeffrey Reddick, The Night Sitter has plenty of style and neon color on display. Its trailer is incredibly effective, so I'd been waiting to see this for some time. Amber (Elyse Dufour, Frankie from The Walking Dead) is a con artist posing as a babysitter to steal from a wealthy occult… Continue reading The Night Sitter (2018)

While in the U.S. this was a straight-to-DVD release, it came out… Continue reading Escape Plan 2: Hades (2018)

Backtrace (2018)

Twenty years after a botched robbery, three grifters kidnap an amnesia patient to jog his memory and find the long-lost money. It's directed by Brian A. Miller, who has also been behind several direct to video Bruce Willis vehicles like Vice, The Prince and Reprisal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INDleu1aHyE After suffering a brain injury from that aforementioned heist, MacDonald (Matthew… Continue reading Backtrace (2018)
