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.

Skinwalkers


None August 16th, 2007

skinwalkers

Reviewer's grade: C-

 

You can't keep a good Hollywood horror myth down, so here comes another werewolf picture. This time a clan of werewolves is tracking a boy named Timothy. If he reaches his 13th birthday, he has the power to end the curse of lycanthropy across the board, and so another clan of were-beasties is trying to protect him.

 

That's what we call a "plot." The bad guys ride big ol' choppers and the good guys ride in a beat up panel truck. That's what we call "cheap." Elias Koteas stars as Timothy's protector, a skinwalker who wants the curse to end so he can stay home on nights with a full moon and watch old Lon Chaney movies on TV.

 

Jim Isaacs, who directed "Jason X" and garnered a few laughs by not taking Machete Man too seriously, plays this one straight but still generates some chuckles because the picture is such a conglomeration of movie genres. If you have to watch it at all, wait for the DVD. PG-13
