The Blackcoat’s Daughter (2017) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

Mysterious goings-on go on at an all-girl Catholic school over winter break. The film is shot with an excess of style that got in the way of the coherence. The freezing setting of upstate New York reaches into the tone of the entire film and even the spirit of the viewer. The ambience is certainly […]

Cross Wars (2017) (Blu-ray film review).

I have to confess I wasn’t sure what to make of ‘Cross Wars’. The opening shows a lady going to a comicbook shop and handing over a stone and gets the second issue of a rare comic called ‘Cross’ and told to look after it. Back at home, she reads it to her son and […]

Doctor Strange (2016) (Blu-ray film review).

Even before I picked up the ‘Doctor Strange’ blu-ray, I had mixed feelings. A female Ancient One. A black Baron Modo, not even called a Baron. Straying from the source material to tick off representative of different types of people seems an odd compromise to the well-known source. Even a female Ancient One but still […]

Bokeh (2017) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

Bringing up memories of the more engaging ‘The Quiet Earth’ (1985), ‘Bokeh’ concerns a young (American?) couple, Jenai and Riley, vacationing in Iceland when nearly everybody in the world mysteriously disappears. The two people are the inheritors of Iceland with its beautiful natural scenery and without any Icelanders anywhere. In fact, they are without any […]

Bethany (film review by Frank Ochieng).

For some frightfest filmmakers the challenge of molding and shaping the horror genre in their own imaginative vision is a definite given. The horror genre is a broad scope of a creepy canvas in which moviemakers can manipulate the kinds of colourful fear and tension that they want to convey artistically. Writer/director/producer James Cullen Bressack […]
