Reviewing “Dark Was the Night” An entertaining creature feature that embraces the appeal of old school monster movie suspense

Dark Was The Night

DARK WAS THE NIGHT is a deliciously dark yet heartfelt monster movie, one that relies on character drama first and ratchets up the suspense with that old-fashioned method of teasing out a wonderfully balanced mix of dread and eager anticipation. Small New England town, big woods with a deep, dark history pre-dating colonial times, protagonists struggling with their own real-world fears trying to put a real-world face on a threat they can’t fully comprehend — this is the way monster movies are supposed to be made.

5 Episodes In: “Teen Wolf” Season 5A Teen angst with a supernatural flavor provides sustained entertainment

The focus of this season has been the gradual breakdown of Scott McCall, as he loses his packmates and faces changes to his own nature that come with a loss of power. Stripped down to his bare essentials, he has become far more like the awkward and uncertain boy from Season 1 than the quietly powerful and educated Alpha he’s grown into.

5 Episodes In: “Humans” Season 1 This adaptation captures the drama of facing the consequences of designing technology-based life

Humans on AMC

Humans is a compelling look at the drama that happens when technology, artificial intelligence, and the overwhelm of daily life in a world where more and more people have less and less time to connect with each other and be human all collide, and begin to redefine what humanity means and if it can evolve to something more.

Reviewing “Sinister 2″ As standalone and sequel, this horror movie delivers the goods

Sinister 2

More often than not, sequels do not do justice to their predecessors. Sinister 2 doesn’t fall into the sequel trap.

While it may help if you see the first Sinister, you don’t have to see it to appreciate the film. It’s a stand-alone horror film all on it’s own. And as a continuation, I think it’s pretty damned good.

Reviewing “Return to Sender” What the movie lacks in surprise and suspense, Rosamund Pike makes up for with a nuanced performance

Return to Sender

As a suspense thriller, Return to Sender isn’t very suspenseful. But that doesn’t mean it’s not worth the watch, or that it wasn’t a decent film. I find it more like homage to women who have been sexually assaulted. I find that most of the reviewers who panned it, were male. It’s a revenge story. One that I think any woman, who has been on the receiving end of unwarranted sexual attention of any kind, might enjoy.
