“..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]

A GOOD MARRIAGE :

“..it's not bad, but it's puzzling why director Peter Askin and King himself bothered to adapt a nondescript novella from the Master of Horror's autumn years..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

BANG BANG! :

“..wish they had used more logic than bullets to create the real 'bang bang'..”
by Lokesh Dharmani [Masala]

LEFT BEHIND :

“..Left Behind is flush with mysteries of a different sort..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

THE GOOD LIE :

“..it's a deeply touching story about survival, perseverance, and hope..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

ANNABELLE :

“..there is nothing in Annabelle that comes close to capturing a single moment of genuine fear, tension or even mild discomfort, beyond the occasional aural sting..”
by James Marsh [Twitch]

MAS NEGRO QUE LA NOCHE :

“..this might just be the silliest Mexican movie of the year, 3D or not..”
by Eric Ortiz Garcia [TwitchFilm]

THE EQUALIZER :

“..a stone-dumb movie, unwilling to allow Washington even a hint of uniqueness (apart from the usual silverware straightening and public book reading, shorthand cliches for "smart")..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

THE BOXTROLLS :

“..delectable treat that balances themes of identity and class warfare with Monty Python-style political skewering, quirky humor and dairy jokes..”
by Brian Truitt [USA Today]

SAINT LAURENT :

“..pure haute couture - considerably more spectacular, but also less practical, with its baroque ornamentation and slip-sliding chronology..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN :

“..painfully well-meaning but largely unpersuasive bid for cross-generational understanding feels at once of-the-moment and too obvious by half..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
