THE DROP :

“..it isn't as powerful as the previous Lehane-inspired movies, but it has slow-building traction and three terrifically controlled performances..”
by Lisa Kennedy [Denver Post]

SOMETHING WICKED :

“..instead of remaking Bradbury's tale, a semi horror film was derived from Shakespeare's quote - and has little to do with anything except the word Wicked.....”
by James M. Tate [Cultfilmfreak Cinema]

AT THE DEVIL'S DOOR :

“.."At the Devil's Door" doesn't piece together as the eerie, semi-apocalyptic tale it's meant to become..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

BIRD PEOPLE :

“..the new storyline offers some clever moments. But the whimsy isn't enough to warrant staying the night..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

HONEYMOON :

“..a steady dose of newlywed nightmare..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]

TAKE ME TO THE RIVER :

“..you can't help but feel all the palpable joy is eliding some darker realities that would lend the copious musical performances a deeper resonance..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]

FINDING FANNY :

“..an original story that is dark, whimsical, witty and irreverent..”
by Priya Joshi [Digital Spy]

MINE GAMES :

“..Mine Games never fully embellishes the idea. Once it finally begins to throw the plot into high gear, it's too little too late. It feels like it's simply retreading old material in a new environment..”
by Patrick Cooper [Bloody Disgusting]

THE GUEST :

“..it's an effectively bloody, breakneck ride, given an extra coat of alluring gloss by the John Carpenter-influenced 1980s styling that is currently all the rage in the genre..”
by Guy Lodge [Time Out London]

20,000 DAYS ON EARTH :

“..a highly polished, carefully constructed docu-fiction hybrid..”
by John Semley [Slant Magazine]
