Horror comes in a variety of flavors, varying from peppery and piquant to subtle and understated. Polish film director Małgorzata Szumowska’s “The Other Lamb” is billed as horror, but audiences shouldn’t be in a rush to embrace or eschew the movie based on that imprecise pigeonhole alone. Re…

Is it just me, or is there something about “Blow the Man Down” – the new black comedy thriller film from Amazon Studios – that calls to mind classic 1990s Coen brothers movies? Written and directed by Bridget Savage Cole and Danielle Krudy, the film is set in a secluded Maine fishing village…

A number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:

Billed as everything from arthouse horror to stylish feminist psychological thriller, director Carlo Mirabella-Davis’ new film “Swallow” offers a fascinating and often repellant rendering of how the toxic constraints of traditional gender roles can be psychologically catastrophic.

Sometimes, the film that Hollywood delivers fails to meet the expectations of the individual viewer. That doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s a bad movie — just that it didn’t appeal to a specific viewer.

It’s no secret that a common fantasy among Hollywood filmmakers these days is retreading old ground by rebooting a classic TV show. Recent examples include “Charlie’s Angels,” “CHiPs,” “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” “21 Jump Street” and the latest additions to the seemingly endless franchise bas…

Somehow the standard idiom “apples and oranges” isn’t descriptive enough to adequately demonstrate the incommensurable qualities of the DC Extended Universe and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I’d go with something like “apples and batarangs,” personally.

Let me tell you something: It was downright spooky — opening weekend, a late Sunday morning screening and this movie reviewer sitting all alone in a darkened auditorium slogging through the tedious pre-show commercials. What dark forces had conspired to keep audiences from wanting to see a n…

Admittedly, my opinion of Richard Stanley’s new film “Color Out of Space” may be skewed by my admiration for the source material.

As a kid growing up in the 1970s, World War II cues were virtually ubiquitous.

Over Christmas break I went to see “Little Women.” It was based on the book by Louisa May Alcott. I just want to clarify that I’ve never actually read the book, even though I would like to. The book is loosely based on Alcott’s own life, although there are significant differences.

First, there are those 10 words in blue static text — the 10 words we all know as intimately as “once upon a time.” Then, John Williams’ “Main Title Theme” bursts out of the darkness, announcing the beginning of another chapter in the ongoing saga. The opening crawl — a signature device of e…

In 2019, the Walt Disney Company and Marvel Studios continued to wield the Infinity Gauntlet to collect an obscene amount of box office revenue. Released April 26, “Avengers: Endgame” effectively brought Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to a conclusion. To date, the film’s domest…

Although “Frozen” wasn’t my daughter’s first Disney princess movie, it arrived in theaters at just the right moment in her childhood to have a significant impact.

I imagine modern playwrights have as much envy as admiration for William Shakespeare. Every dramatist since must look upon his body of work with as much veneration as jealousy. Here we are 400 years after the Bard of Avon’s death, and his plays continue to be studied, analyzed, interpreted a…

It’s the most spooktacular week of the year, and — if you’re anything like me — you’re in the mood for some macabre movies to mark Halloween 2019. Fortunately for horror film aficionados, this has been a banner year for bloodcurdling fare.
