FEARNET Movie Review: 'The Guest' [SXSW 2014]

The Guest is about a handsome, humble, and very decent man who goes to visit the mother of his deceased army buddy, gets invited to spend a few days at the Peterson household, and ends up... well, let's just say that newcomer David quickly has a resounding impact on the lives of the family.

FEARNET Movie Review: 'Stage Fright' [SXSW 2014]

Stage Fright is sort of like a cross between Glee and Sleepaway Camp, and while it struggles with a few slow spots and occasionally offers some tonally confused signals, there's certainly enough to please horror buffs, musical geeks, or anyone who has tried to make an indie film or stage musical.

FEARNET Movie Review: 'At the Devil's Door' (aka Home)

Home is sort of like several horror movies in one. It's a narrative that almost plays like an anthology, and the stories offered here touch on A) haunted houses, B) violent spirits who attack women, C) demonic possession, and D) potentially killer kids.

FEARNET Movie Review: 'Exists' [SXSW 2014]

Exists has enough assets in its corner to make one wish the screenplay was a bit more novel than just another "people trekking through the forest" set-up, but while it certainly won't win many points for originality, it does manage to dole out some very effective horror sequences in the end.

FEARNET Movie Review: 'Oculus' [SXSW 2014]

Kaylie Russell is a lovely young woman, but she's had a pretty rough life. Both of her parents were murdered inside the family home, and her long-hospitalized little brother is finally getting out of a mental institution. Also, she is convinced that an antique mirror contains a supernatural force that caused all the bloody mayhem and horrific family tragedy about a decade earlier.

FEARNET Movie Review: 'Oldboy' (2013)

Despite all of the angry complaints about this "pointless" remake, despite how its distributor pretty much dumped the film into theaters, and despite how badly the new Oldboy did at the box office... it's a pretty good movie!
