Night Must Fall

Dated, curious, and over-the-top


Thriller

Rod Lott
I'm sure "Night Must Fall" was quite the spine-tingler in 1937. Today, it's amusing to watch, but instead of being on the edge of your seat, you may be settled back in it, not counting a few bathroom breaks in its overlong two hours.

Thriller

Rod Lott
Val Kilmer’s stab at resurrecting The Saint as a film franchise bombed big in 1997 (I liked it, FWIW), but in Hollywood’s Golden Age, there were no such troubles.

The Clinic

Probably should've miscarried.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Aussie thriller “The Clinic” begins on Christmas Eve 1979, "six years before the advent of DNA testing," the odd title read, and the visibly pregnant Beth (Tabrett Bethell, TV’s “Legend of the Seeker”) and Cameron (Andy Whitfield, TV’s “Spartacus: Blood and Sand”) are headed to spend it with her mother.

Alfred Hitchcock: A Legacy of Suspense

How's 29 hours of Hitch suit you?


Thriller

Super Hybrid

We find it guilty of vehicular manslaughter.


Thriller

Rod Lott
