81% Synchronic (2020) On the surface it's about a fancy new narcotic that makes people do very nasty things, but like most smart genre films, it works on a variety of levels.‐ Thrillist

78% Spiral (2019) Shades of Rosemary's Baby and Rear Window are sprinkled about but the filmmakers also have their own points to make. And scares to deliver.‐ Thrillist

81% Scare Me (2020) more of a dark comedy than a full-bore horror tale, but genre fans will dig it all the same. the two leads are clearly having a good time, and it starts to infect the viewer.‐ Thrillist

Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2020
87% Get Duked! (2020) Sort of a goofball combination of The Most Dangerous Game and Attack the Block, this one's a lot of fun‐ Thrillist

100% Host (2020) The visual hook of the "online seance haunting" wouldn't amount to much without some interesting characters, solid acting, and some really good scares. Host has all that stuff.‐ Thrillist

Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2020
87% Shirley (2020) Half a semi-biopic of a celebrated and controversial author and half a dark psychological thriller about the nature of co-dependence and hero worship. And Moss is amazing.‐ Thrillist

Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2020
87% Come to Daddy (2020) Darkly funny and enjoyably unpredictable. And sometimes plain old weird.‐ Thrillist
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2020
96% Z (2019) Everyone says it's normal for a kid to have an imaginary friend, but what this rather impressive horror flick asks is "what if they shouldn't?"‐ Thrillist
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2020
45% Black Water: Abyss (2020) I'm an admitted sucker for most movies in which animals hunt humans, and this team makes pretty damn good ones. (Like Black Water, The Reef, and this nifty nailbiter.)‐ Thrillist

Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2020
88% After Midnight (Something Else) (2020) A smart and insightful low-key romantic drama -- that also may have monsters as part of the problem.‐ Thrillist
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2020
57% The Hunt (2020) As political commentary it's more than a bit muddled; as a violently unpredictable action thriller, it's pretty damn fun.‐ Thrillist
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2020
74% The Wretched (2020) You can probably guess where it's headed early on, but the film still works serviceably well as yet another horror spin on Rear Window.‐ Thrillist
