Penumbra

Unlike the filmmakers’ previous thriller, you won’t break a ‘Sweat.’


Thriller

Rod Lott
Penumbra is Spanish for "partly in the shadows," which is how we first find the fourth-floor apartment that Margarita Sanchez (Cristina Brondo, Dario Argento's Do You Like Hitchcock?) shows to Jorge Kepler (Berta Muñiz), representative for a prospective renter willing to pay four times the going rate, and for a full year in advance.

Jersey Shore Shark Attack

Goombahs and gore galore.


Comedy

Rod Lott
With one of those titles that doubles as a story summary, Jersey Shore Shark Attack is the rare made-for-Syfy film that has more to it than said title.

It’s melting! melting!


CFN

Gazette staff
Here’s the thing, David Gregory Gee: We’ve all had it up to “here” with how hot it’s been. Yes, it sucks. But that doesn’t mean we can just rip all our clothes off and run nekkid through the neighbor’s lawn sprinklers.

Elevator

Has more ups than downs.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Stop me if this sounds familiar: a handful of people trapped in an elevator, in a life-or-death situation, and one of them is not who he or she seems to be.

The Moth Diaries

Be drawn to its mild flame.


Horror

Rod Lott
Director Mary Harron's The Moth Diaries is a coming-as-age film in the same way her American Psycho was a Wall Street portrait.

Shark Week

It bites. Hard.


Thriller

Rod Lott
What do you get when a prosecutor, a police officer, a journalist, an accountant, a judge, a bodyguard, a paramedic and one unemployed junkie skank are drugged, shackled and forced to play a game of survival involving man-eating sharks? The Asylum Home Entertainment's Shark Week, not to be confused with the Discovery Channel programming people look forward to.

Area 407

The found-footage film travels to Jurassic Park.


Horror

Rod Lott
Found-footage movies are no longer novel, but they're cheap to make, so expect to see many, many more shoot out Hollywood's pipeline. As long as concepts are tweaked, however, surprises like Chronicle can occur.

Celeste & Jesse Forever


Comedy

Rod Lott
Any cries of nepotism in the case of Rashida Jones officially can be buried, and the dirt above patted with a shovel for good measure.

Ten Thousand More Ways to Die: Spaghetti Western Collection

Saddle up ... for, oh, about 18 hours.


Western

Rod Lott
Anyone who believes public-domain DVD box sets don't contain any good movies, take note: You're dead wrong.

Bigfoot

Toes the line of Syfy stupidity.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
At least Bigfoot does not waste viewers’ time in showing them Bigfoot. They have to wait one minute, tops, so if that’s all you ask of this Asylum release that premiered recently on Syfy, you’re golden.
