Review: Sinister 2 (2015) 

While the first Sinister was a surprise his, the follow-up effort, SINISTER 2, from Ciaran Foy struggles to recapture the thrills and chills of the first film. For The Black Saint suffers another round of “Blumhouse strikes again” sharing a strong negative reaction to the film. Thomas, Doc and Vixen are a little more warm to the sequel. James Ransone and Shannyn Sossamon provide the film with strong performances while the first film’s director Scott Derrickson and writer C. Robert Cargill craft a script that gives the film too much of a good thing watering down the mystery of the film’s antagonist, Bughuul.

harbingerdown


Review: Harbinger Down (2015) 

HARBINGER DOWN represents a love for bringing practical effects to the big screen, a hands-on physical thing leaving CGI far behind. Effects artists Tom Woodruff Jr. and Alex Gillis, from StudioADI – Academy Award winners for Death Becomes Her and famous for their work on Starship Troopers and Alien films – craft a horror tale where an alien infects a ship trapped in icy waters. The film wears its influences out in the open from Alien to The Thing to The Blob and more. The cringe as they find the effects noteworthy but the script, direction and even the acting – aside from Lance Henriksen – lacking.

What Have You Been Watching: Cop Car (2015)

Thomas steps up to discuss the thriller Cop Car from the future Spider-Man director Jon Watts. The film pits a corrupt lawman, Kevin Bacon, against a pair of rebellious kids who take off with Bacon’s police car. Thomas recommends the film, not only as a primer for the director and his next high-profile project, but as a competent and exciting film all on its own. And, everything is better with a little Bacon in it, right!

Review: The Gift (2015) 

THE GIFT is a pleasant Summer surprise, a nifty little thriller from writer/director/co-star Joel Edgerton that challenges Se7en for the line “What’s in the box?” Husband and wife Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall welcome awkward friend Edgerton into their home…and their lives. Once they decide, after a strange encounter in Edgerton’s home, to part ways – an action that exposes his creepy disposition as something far more frightening. The Grue-crew champion the film and the acting chomps of Bateman, Hall and Edgerton.

What Have You Been Watching: Fantastic Four (2015) 

While the Marvel cinematic universe has revolutionized the superhero genre, FOX continues to struggle to fully realize the FANTASTIC FOUR franchise. Director Josh Trank (Chronicle) steps in to harbinger the 2015 version featuring Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell as Reed Richards, Johnny Storm, Sue Storm and Ben Grimm as they venture into another dimension to gain powers beyond their imagination. Somewhere along the line, however, everything falls apart resulting in one of the worst films of 2015, superheroes or otherwise. It is a real stinker!

Review: Dark Was the Night (2015) 

Kevin Durand makes a huge impression on the Grue-crew with his starring role in DARK WAS THE NIGHT. The Black Saint praises the character driven plot and the actors that bring the film to life. Doc and Thomas are less impressed but praise Durand agreeing that they want to see more from this terrific actor. In Doc’s opinion, the creature effect have him longing for the days of Pumpkinhead and the like – perhaps, he’s a bit too curmudgeon.
