It's preaching in all caps. Or considering the oddly goofy tone, All Caps in Comic Sans.

It's the product of a satirical ambition that lacks the wit to land any heady blows; the horror mastery to be even glancingly scary; the intellect to make those thrills invigoratingly existential; and the sense of humor to make it entertaining.

June 28, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

False Positive doesn't sustain its most suspenseful ideas. The big revelation at the end is something of a letdown, and the movie's final image spells out a metaphor that ought to have been left to suggestion.

June 28, 2021 | Full Review…

The movie, despite its weaknesses, has a heartbeat. It is frank about how frightening it is to ask for men's help when your body is on the line.

June 25, 2021 | Full Review…

It all comes off as strangely enervating and flat-footed in the end: a story without a genre, or a point.

June 25, 2021 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

As the volume increases, the film's message distorts, and it starts grasping at too many different ideas that never cohere, abandoning subtext for wincingly on-the-nose exchanges that shatter the mood.
