“..provides the right level of disturbing imagery and storyline to make Banshee Chapter a worthwhile watch..”
by Lauren Taylor [Bloody Disgusting]
2.5 of 4

“..it's an odd undertaking to contextualize Lovecraft into covert American history, and Erickson admirably tries to grapple with his material in this sense..”
by Wes Greene [Slant Magazine]

THE LOFT :

“.."The Loft" is a stylish whodunit that struggles to stitch the label "Hitchcockian" right on the inner pocket..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

BLACK OR WHITE :

“..Black or White is an uncommonly brave film but it loses its gumption at the end..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]

AMIRA & SAM :

“..nothing feels truly at stake, no matter how weighty the risks the characters face, but there are charming moments along the way..”

SUBURBAN GOTHIC :

“..it's unsatisfying overall, trying too hard to look like it doesn't care..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

GIRLHOOD :

WILD CARD :

“.."Wild Card" doesn't really hit the rock bottom that would make it more than a series of sulks and wallops..”
by Nicolas Rapold [NY Times]

SUPREMACY :

“..despite a vein-popping lead performance (and Ms. Olivieri‚Äôs touching take on the classic broken-down moll), "Supremacy" remains stubbornly uninvolving..”

BEAUTIFUL & TWISTED :

“..a lurid yet compelling docudrama..”
by Hal Boedeker [Orlando Sentinel]
