Producers couldn't have picked a better title, though. After I left my Friday afternoon screening, attended by a whopping two other people, I felt far from satisfied. Empty, you might say.

"Empty" is an apt way to describe this overlong and sluggish supernatural horror pic.

November 11, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

This long, slow-burn sci-fi tale takes its simple "urban legend" idea into ambitious territory, but, by the time it wraps up, it all makes too little sense to justify sitting through it.

While it does offer a new angle on a familiar horror setup, spinning into an entirely different subgenre in the process, The Empty Man stretches out an underbaked idea to an excruciating degree.

November 2, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

A movie that makes Fox's polarising and similarly-confounding A Cure For Wellness now look like a masterpiece and "almost" make you yearn for the simpler "delights" of the much-derided Slender Man.

Although Disney has changed the name of the studio in February, they didn't even spare the expense to swap out the 20th Century Fox logo and presenting credit on the DCP sent to theaters.
