“..starts out as a funny musical mashup - "Glee" meets "Friday the 13th" - but winds up indulging slasher-flick cliches instead of spoofing them..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..nothing else in Stage Fright, a horror-musical hybrid that plays like a sleepy, off-brand Troma movie, is as good as Meat Loaf..”
by Simon Abrams [Village Voice]
Review rate : B

“..it's half Friday the 13th, half Phantom of the Paradise, and just cheesy enough to work..”

“..expertly crafted entertainment, but falls short of Fincher's finest..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

AUTUMN BLOOD :

“.."Autumn Blood" is such a film, an odd, unpleasant 2011 thriller..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU :

by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :

by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]

TUSK :

“..a truly bonkers Z-grade thriller..”
by Drew Hunt [Slant Magazine]
