    Review: Go And Say Ten Hail Marys Instead Of Bothering With 'The Devil Inside'

    In theory, the fundamental effectiveness of horror should spring from a willful dissonance between a sense of normalcy and the discord of the story’s events…but what happens when that sense of discord itself becomes all too familiar? Among the many problems of "The Devil Inside&quo...

    Pariah—movie review

    Although its title may be off-putting to some people, the main character in 'Pariah'—as played by glowing newcomer Adepero Oduye—is so emotionally open and real that you can’t help responding to her.

    Review: 'Once Upon A Time In Anatolia' A Masterful, Slow-Burn Epic
