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.

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.

Vile

Not for the weak — duh.


Horror

Rod Lott
With Vile, we may have a new cinematic achievement: the first torture-porn film to open with a quote from Gandhi. Take that with a grain of salt — or perhaps the box of kosher salt poured into the wounds of some sad bastard by some demented madman in the prologue.

The Revenant

Ain’t no trip to ‘Zombieland.’


Comedy

Rod Lott
I recently had a discussion with friends about the increasing trend of self-aggrandizing Twitter bios of locals who think so mighty highly of themselves, they must brag to the Internet about their amazing awesomeness! Our theory is, if you have to tell the world you're a "creative genius" or "master of [fill in the blank]," you're more than likely not. Real genius speaks for itself.

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?: Anniversary Edition

She's on Blu-ray, for starters.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Considered the granddaddy — er, make that grandmama — of psycho-biddy flicks, 1962's What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? pits two old-Hollywood legends against one another, with Bette Davis and Joan Crawford as the snarling Hudson sisters.

Weird-Noir

Something Weird brings you six flicks of hard-boiled hoopla.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Of the six films that compose the double-disc Weird-Noir set, exactly zero may qualify as truly weird. The adjective likely is applied just as a tie to its label, Something Weird Video. Whatever the case, I don't care. The point is, all six films are a blast, and I'm just happy to have them — weird, plain, odd, milquetoast, legitimate, what have you.
