“..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]
“..it offers some genuine scares along the way, as well as a terrific performance by the ever-reliable Ted Levine..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
“..a smart, clever, and diverting little mash-up of numerous sci-fi and horror tropes, it's certainly worth a look..”
by Scott Weinberg [FEARnet]
“.."Banshee Chapter" satisfyingly solves its puzzle while providing one last note of panic..”

LATEST REVIEWS

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 :

“..good for a few laughs, but not much more..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE SEARCH :

“..the film as a whole is tepid and familiar enough that it's hard to even find much to salvage in the acting..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

RISE OF THE LEGEND :

“..a slick, polished and entertaining reboot of a folk legend..”
by Elizabeth Kerr [Hollywood Reporter]

FOOD CHAINS :

“..Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art. The best documentaries manage to be both..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

SEASONS OF LOVE :

“.."Seasons of Love" is a tedious love story that doesn't have the drama nor excitement of even ten minutes on the F train..”
by Monique A. Williams [Shadow and Act]

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."A Royal Christmas" may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, if only because the story is so underpowered by original ideas..”
by Nancy DeWolf Smith [Wall Street Journal]

HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE :

“..as a romantic comedy that stands on its own, Hello Ladies: The Movie hits every objective. It's a structurally sound movie, which may sound like an insult but simply means that it's not just a stretched out episode of Hello Ladies..”
by LaToya Ferguson [A.V. Club]

LATE PHASES :

“..Late Phases fails to deliver either shocks or real drama..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]

ALL RELATIVE :

“..not entirely successful attempt at doing something unexpected within the traditional romantic-comedy framework..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [LA Times]

THE SLEEPWALKER :

“..a tentative feint toward genre territory can't conceal the slightness of this heightened drama..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
