Finding Frankenweenie.

You can’t keep a good Tim Burton down (unless you’re Helena Bonham Carter), and the rogue and roguish filmmaker is back with his latest animated movie, Frankenweenie. The film should have been titled, Frankenstein: the Junior Years, but what the hey. It might have sounded less like a brand of hot dogs, then. Although there […]

The Day (Frank’s Take).

The post-apocalyptic thriller The Day yearns for basking in its atmospheric credibility while recalling dismal images of a landscape of desperation in a futuristic world wallowing in its debris-ridden misery. This is the premise for filmmaker Douglas Aarniokoski’s (“Highlander: Endgame”) grainy and gritty actioner. Although pensive in its doomsday presentation, The Day is a flat […]

The Possession (Frank’s Take).

One has to give credit to Danish filmmaker Ole Bornedal’s (“Nightwatch”) The Possession for its distinctive spin on an old familiar theme spotlighting an impressionable little girl under the influence of a demonic curse. Secondly, the audience is reminded that this horror showcase is “based on a true story” as if to justify its authentic […]

The Evil Tree by Erik Hendrix and Daniel Thollin

‘The Evil Tree’ is a rather good ghost story that is rather let down by the artistic style used to depict it. With the story taking up 98 pages, there is room for quite a bit of bonus material filling it out to a respectable 110 pages. Erik Hendrix is credited as the writer with […]

ParaNorman (Frank’s Take).

There are not many slick stop-motion animated features to boast about recently until the arrival of freakish and fun-loving monster fable ParaNorman. Highly sophisticated in its ghoulish gumption, ParaNorman is indeed a goose-bump treat for the kiddies as well as their grown-up counterparts that will rejoice in the Gothic-style antics of humor, hokey-minded horror and […]
