“..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]

LATEST REVIEWS

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY :

“..colourful, tongue-in-cheek fun, purpose-built for grown-up lovers of kitsch '80s science-fiction. But the Marvel formula is starting to feel, well, a little too formulaic..”
by Dan Jolin [Empire Magazine]

THE FLUFFY MOVIE :

“..the personal material shines brightest in this consistently amusing if not hilarious stand-up comedy film..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

KICK :

“..is non-stop entertainment and Salman Khan at his best..”
by Sarita Tanwar [dna India]

HERCULES :

“..a picture that is easy to indulge in, and enjoy..”
by Stefan Pape [HeyUGuys]

A MOST WANTED MAN :

“..it's not a kind way for a memorable artist to say goodbye, but there's one thing you have to admit about Mr. Hoffman-he may have been many things, but boring was not one of them..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

VERY GOOD GIRLS :

“..Very Good Girls is a film one wants to like but can't. It just doesn't work..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]

AND SO IT GOES :

“..for all of its 93 minutes, you never feel anything significant is at stake for anyone..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

MY MAN IS A LOSER :

“..that type of movie hottie who hangs with the guys, becomes a love interest for the secretly lonely bachelor..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

COME BACK TO ME :

“..the film's clumsy script elicits groans, but it's the plot that infuriates..”
by Rob Staeger [Village Voice]

LUCY :

“.."Lucy" isn't really much of a thriller - it's virtually an anti-thriller, devoid of suspense or any real sense of danger due to the fact that its heroine is more or less invincible..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
