"The Darkness" brings no new scares to light

Published May 22, 2016

According to Greg Mclean, "The Darkness" comes from a true story passed along to him first-hand. Judging by the results, maybe someone was just recalling the plot of "Poltergeist" to him. Or an infinite number of scarier haunted house tales from before.


Oddball cast can't resurrect cheap scares in "The Lazarus Effect"

Published March 4, 2015

What's an early year PG-13 horror movie doing with such an overqualified and overall just plain odd cast? Too bad the actual movie itself isn't as surprising or unpredictable as its IMDB page, relying on the same tried and tired horror clich├ęs, tropes and scares for success.

In the pre-release hype for "The Quiet Ones," distributor Lionsgate tweeted that they used between 12 and 20 different processes in order to give parts of the movie the look of old, grainy 16mm film. Cute fun fact, though as one astute follower quickly noted, if they really wanted to create the look of 16mm film, they could've, you know, actually used 16mm film. It's a little factoid, but one that nicely captures the lack of commitment that plagues the whole movie.
