Eric’s Review: Escape Room: Tournament of Champions (2021)

Eric’s Review: Escape Room: Tournament of Champions (2021)

★★★ out of ★★★★★
Once more into the maze! It’s still full of tricks, traps, misdirection, and impossible challenges. As it was the last time, the killer escape rooms are hugely imaginative, even if the overriding plot isn’t. It’s an entertaining low-calorie thrill ride that is as entertaining and exciting as a roller coaster, but it has about as much nuance and character development as an carnie ride as well.

The Scariest Things Review: The Forever Purge (2021)

The Scariest Things Review: The Forever Purge (2021)

★★★1/2 and ★★★★ out of ★★★★★
The Purge series has a way of reflecting the anxieties of the moment, and the latest installment, The Forever Purge, pours gasoline on the subject of immigration and the ugly political divide within the United States. It is a ferocious dystopian view that if you squint, is frightening as to how close we are to this dark reality. Your feelings about this film may get framed largely from your political point of view.

Mike’s Review: Fulci for Fake (2019)

Mike’s Review: Fulci for Fake (2019)

★★ out of ★★★★★
Some will say the epicenter of the Fulci universe lie in the greatness of the gory triptych: The New York Ripper, The House by the Cemetery, and The Beyond. Others will point to the early, less gory but equally frightening confines of The Psychic, Don’t Torture a Duckling, and A Lizard in a Woman’s Skin. No matter where you fall on the Lucio Fulci spectrum it’s awfully hard to argue about his immense and ever-lasting output. Stanley Kubrik only directed 13 films. But Fulci? He directed 61.
