1.5 of 4

“..the film spins out of control so messily that no one in the audience will be crying "bravo" or "encore"..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]
2 of 4

“..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..”
by Keith Staskiewicz [Entertainment Weekly]
1.5 of 4

“.."Stage Fright" doesn't deliver the goods with sufficient spirit. It lacks the sparkle to be a truly killer show..”

LATEST REVIEWS

ALOHA :

“..the chemistry is mostly forced, the story without an emotional core. And though Crowe's facility for language can be striking, here it never moves beyond self-consciousness..”
by Sheri Linden [Hollywood Reporter]

TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS :

“..Tanu Weds Manu Returns is as entertaining and engaging a film as any that Bollywood has delivered this year..”
by Harish Jaiswal [Cine Magazine Digital]

BARELY LETHAL :

“..the movie has a few cute moments, but for the most part it's as predictable as being bored in trigonometry..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

SURVIVOR :

“..director James McTeigue ( V for Vendetta) has turned in a crisply efficient thriller that doesn’t surprise but still manages to be mildly entertaining over the course of its predictable 96 minutes..”
by Cary Darling [DFW.com]

SAN ANDREAS :

“..it's hard to appreciate San Andreas as much more than a series of special effects vistas: impeccably detailed, completely plastic..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

MACBETH :

“..fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it's a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

INSIDE OUT :

“..delightfully inventive, funny and touching and, surreptitiously, a great way of helping kids get a handle on all those inexplicable feelings..”
by David Sexton [This is London]

SICARIO :

“..Villeneuve handles conventional action sequences terrifically well..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

SEA OF TREES :

“..from the cloying, ever-present score to the complete lack of narrative momentum, it all adds up to a film that's easily Van Sant's worst..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

TOMORROWLAND :

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]
