REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Go! Watch this movie. You'll regret if not seeing it.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

3 of 4

“..the vamp-transformation effects are quite good, the gimmicky uses of 3D lots of fun. But perhaps the most special effect of all is Farrell. Pardon the pun, but he chews this movie up..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
2.5 of 4

“..mostly unsurprising..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
2.5 of 4

“..it's noteworthy how filmmakers updated Vincent from Roddy McDowall's 1985 version, changing the character from a TV horror show host, a profession that's now obsolete, to the perfect contemporary equivalent..”
by Jon Niccum [Kansas City Star]
3.5 of 5

“..it's great fun watching..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
3.5 of 5

“..it delivers its knowingly unrefined thrills in a smart, engaging and not unpleasantly ruthless way, and never lets its cheekiness get in the way of its creepiness..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
“..isn't quite a classic vampire movie, but it's refreshingly straightforward and self-deprecating..”
by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle]
3.5 of 4

“..is the best thing to happen to horror movies since red food coloring and Karo syrup..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
3 of 4

“..Fright is clearly Hollywood summer fare. Slick and driven by a bass-heavy score, the film embraces cliches by the cape-ful..”
by Scott Bowles [USA Today]
“..a steady supply of spiky humor and a game cast keep this cooking most of the way..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..a cleverly balanced mix of scares and laughs that is funnier and more terrifying than the 1985 original on which it's based..”
by Robert Koehler [Variety]

CHRISTIAN MINGLE :

“..a sweet romantic comedy that is faith friendly..”
by Donna Rolfe [The Dove Foundation]

MALL :

“.."Mall" is definitely worth a look..”
by Billy Tatum [AXS]

DARK WAS THE NIGHT :

“.."Dark Was the Night" doesn't break the monster movie mold, but does fill it to capacity with eerie atmosphere and creeping chills elevated by terrific acting..”
by Ian Sedensky [Culture Crypt]

BIG DRIVER :

“..if you do enjoy the once in a while thriller, and like to see a story that pushes you to think, then Big Driver is for you..”
by Nathan M Rose [FlickDirect]

SUMMER OF BLOOD :

“..Summer of Blood tries very hard to be cool, but instead comes off as strained and aloof, with a number of satiric targets it could have aimed for but just bypasses altogether..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

THE CULTURE HIGH :

“..an amateurish hand is in the term-paper-like voice-over narration and the inclusion of underqualified talking heads..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

RUDDERLESS :

“.."Rudderless" is a competent, well-acted melodrama, yet in scope and ambition it has the modest and serviceable scale of the small, not silver, screen..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

YOUNG ONES :

“..unfortunately this film is equally dusty, with a mishmash of ideas and self-conscious execution..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

BIRDMAN :

“..Keaton's terrific, off-kilter performance is just one of several in this dizzying, high-energy movie. A must-see..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

HOUSEBOUND :

“..creepy, silly, inventive, darkly funny and, at one point, mind-blowingly bloody..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]
