Escape from Tomorrow

With Escape from Tomorrow, one fears the story behind the movie would loom larger than the movie itself. Luckily, that is not the case. After all, it opens with a decapitation on Disney World’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad roller coaster.

Sorcerer

William Friedkin spends a lot of time in his 2013 memoir discussing why Sorcerer didn't click with critics and audiences even though he believes it to be better than his previous film, The Exorcist. Now that Warner Home Video has reissued Sorcerer on Blu-ray, we can see what Friedkin's fuss is all about.

Broadchurch: The Complete First Season

Welcome to the coastal resort of Broadchurch, population … oh, who can keep track, what will all the corpses? Yes, Broadchurch is yet another British television procedural involving the search for a murderer in a quaint little town, just like the limited series The Fall and Top of the Lake.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

Essentially part five in the ridiculously profitable horror franchise, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones continues the found-footage conceit of the other films. The difference is instead of the scares taking place in rich white suburbia, they do so in a junky apartment complex on a largely Latino side of Oxnard, Calif.

I Know Who Killed Me


None August 2nd, 2007

iknowwhokilledme

Reviewer's grade: B-

 

That faux hard-boiled title gives the game away with this thriller starring an all-grown-up Lindsay Lohan as the escaped victim of a serial killer who thinks she's a tough cookie from Wrongsideofthetracksville, while everyone else thinks she's a perky young college student from New Salem.

 

She has to convince grieving parents that she is not the daughter they love while tracking down the torture-killer who whacked off her right hand and leg. Yes, this is one of the most overplotted what-the-f*#% flicks to come down the pike in a dog's age.

 

Lohan has that perky stuff down pat, but she's not too believable as the hard-drinking, smoking, cursing, pole-dancing, screwing-around alter ego. She's not laughable because she's giving it all she's got and you can see that she really wants to be taken seriously in an adult role.

 

If Jodie Foster could emerge from the miasma of Disney sitcom fluff, maybe Lohan can, too. But this isn't the vehicle "” or the director "” to do it for her. R
