“..unfortunately, the filmmakers push for contrivances that could have been transplanted from the plot of just about every soap opera ever made..”
by Chris Pandolfi [Yahoo! Voices]
“..they appear to be affluent, shallow, as well as blandly attractive, all in the poorly cast modern-horror-movie tradition..”
by Chuck Bowen [Slant Magazine]
“..the title and some of the basic premise come from an old Troma flick, but De Mornay's brood's gory..”
by Matt Singer [Time Out Chicago]
“..so creepy, so much happening under the cover or normalcy...just awesome..”
by Don Sumner [Best Horror Movies]
“..sadistic tone Bousman takes in causing onscreen harm and zeroing in on punctured flesh..”
by Robert Abele [Los Angeles Times]
“..represents a more efficient, state-of-the-art breed of splatter entertainment..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
“..it's not so-bad-it's-good. It's just bad..”
by Josh Katz [Culture Mob]
“..in general, any scene that doesn't involve the quietly scary, evidently psychotic Mrs. Koffin represents screen time wasted..”
by Charles Gant [Variety]
“..crisply shot and surprisingly well acted, "Mother's Day" suffers from an overly long script and annoying glitches in continuity..”
by Jeannette Catsoulis [New York Times]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

THE TALE OF TALES :

“..a dreamy, fresh take on the kind of dark and gory yarns that have come down to us from the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault, only here they're pleasingly new and unfamiliar..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

PERFECT HIGH :

“..it's neither sufficiently impressive on its own merits to be a quality film, nor is it deliciously trashy enough to make for a pleasurable viewing..”
by Alex McCown [A.V. Club]

MAX :

“..a post-9/11 "Benji," enlivened by a solid cast and slightly edgy action..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

INTO THE GRIZZLY MAZE :

“..the elements are there for an old-fashioned animal-as-serial-killer romp, just regrettably given a formulaic telling and poorly assembled by director David Hackl..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]

FRESH DRESSED :

“..it's still interesting, just not as much fun..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

BOUND TO VENGEANCE :

“..nevertheless attempts to subvert the sadly commonplace "woman in captivity" narrative, but mostly only succeeds in testing the limits of our gore tolerance..”

TEEN BEACH MOVIE 2 :

“..crammed with catchy tunes, bright sunshine and a perpetually beaming cast of wholesome, winning kids..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

TED 2 :

“..MacFarlane's preference for quantity over quality results in a lot of dead air, but the gags that land are howlers, and all of its crudeness (and racism, and sexism, and homophobia, etc.), the movie beats with a real heart..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]
