Under The Skin Review

Under The Skin is one of those films that just won’t be for everyone. The Art House crowd will likely find some beautiful cinematography, be fascinated by the unsettling and unique imagery, and not be put off by the sparse dialogue. The general movie-going masses will surely be somewhat confused or at least bored with…

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Review

Smothered Review

Imagine a film where Leatherface meets Freddie AND Mike Myers, and others, and THEN they all go on a road trip in a Winnebago to a lake side resort, where tables are turned and they are terrorized for change! Smothered is that film. A funny indie horror film written and directed by Superman’s Dad, Dukes…
