Review rate : C

“..unfortunately, it’s followed here by twists that explain things too easily, making the fantastical seem ordinary after all..”
by Eric D. Snider [Film.com]
“..this is still an intelligent, scary little movie..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
2 of 4

“..there's plenty of atmosphere, with numerous dark shots, shadows, and night scenes, but the tone is more moody than scary..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
3 of 5

“..the most interesting parts of the story are stacked heavily towards the end of the film..”
by Amber Wilkinson [Eye for Film]
Review rate : C

“..the horror genre is neither confining nor in need of transcending, and it's that kind of attitude that leads to mediocrities like Intruders..”
by Scott Tobias [AV Club]

“..the film falls apart over a final surprise that's neither engaging nor effective..”
by Bill Gibron [Filmcritic.com]

by Mark Holcomb [Village Voice]

by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
2.5 of 5

LATEST REVIEWS

A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 :

“..the script is lazy, recycling countless genre cliches rather than inventing novel twists..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

MAKE YOUR MOVE :

“.."Make Your Move" is an underwritten mess..”
by Inkoo Kang [LA Times]

KID CANNABIS :

“..this wild story sells itself, no narration needed..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]

BEARS :

“..another typically engaging, vividly shot entry in the successful Disney wildlife series..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

A PROMISE :

“..awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

FADING GIGOLO :

“..this second film is the keeper: the kind of keenly observed cultural clash that still finds room for dancing, a sultry fish-deboning (you just have to see it) and awakening..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

TIME IS ILLMATIC :

“..the documentary offers a number of reasons to appreciate its ongoing legacy, with sufficient production values to hold the tribute together..”
by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]

HEAVEN IS FOR REAL :

“..a supposedly true story that uses faulty logic to reduce the complexity of faith to a fairy-tale. By rights, it should displease atheists and believers alike..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ANTBOY :

“.."Antboy" is peppered with fun, cleverly shot and edited action bits as well as apropos comic-book style visuals..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

13 SINS :

“..a creepy little diversion that ultimately unravels long before its hero's fragile psyche does..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
