FEARNET Movie Review: 'Children of Sorrow'

Children of Sorrow gets off to a bit of a rocky start. Ostensibly we're along for a "found footage" journey with a British woman who joins a freaky cult in order to find out what happened to her ill-fated sister. That thread is virtually dropped in favor of what seems to be a PR video for the plainly nefarious "preacher" Simon Leach.

FEARNET Movie Review: 'Separation'

It sounds like Greg White's sanguine film Separation is a downbeat and miserable affair, but it's actually quite a calm, confident, and gradually engaging thriller about one married couple, their mysterious daughter, and a handful of hidden secrets that feel a bit random at the outset, but quickly congeal into a satisfying little movie.

FEARNET Movie Review: 'A Field in England'

A Field in England is not a traditional narrative. Those who enjoyed Mr. Wheatley's earlier films -- Down Terrace, Kill List, Sightseers -- will certainly appreciate what the director and his loyal team have concocted here, even if they don't fully "get" it. A movie need not be "deciphered" to be appreciated, and A Field in England is a perfect example of this theory.

FEARNET Movie Review: 'Haunt'

Here's a new indie horror flick about teenagers and haunted houses that isn't A) moronic, B) boring, or C) a formulaic retread simply hoping to cash in on one profitable weekend at the box office.
