Movie Review: ‘Renfield’ Blu-ray

Review by James Lindorf With the possible exception of Sherlock Holmes, there has never been a literary character that has captured our imaginations like Dracula. It has been 126 years since Bram Stoker first created the Bloodsucker, but our fascination shows no signs of ...Read More

Movie Review: ‘Mending The Line’

Review by Hunter Miele “Mending The Line”, directed by Joshua Caldwell, is a heartfelt drama that touches on some pretty heavy themes, including PTSD, addiction, guilt and grief. Many of us encounter these mental and emotional struggles to some extent during our lives, so ...Read More

Movie Review: ‘The Boogeyman’

Review by Lauryn Angel I won’t say I went into The Boogeyman with low expectations, but I definitely felt some trepidation. I often find PG-13 horror movies unsatisfying – mostly jump scares or just too tame overall. On top of that, I grew up ...Read More

Documentary Review: ‘It Ain’t Over’

Movie Review: ‘Master Gardener’

Greetings again from the darkness. The word of the day is “awkward.” Every character, every situation, every moment, and every conversation in this film can be described with that word. An attempt will be made to not overuse that adjective here, but yours truly ...Read More

Movie Review: ‘Organ Trail’

Review by Hunter Miele Set in Montana during the winter of 1870, “Organ Trail” follows a nomadic family as they traverse the- you guessed it- Oregon Trail via covered wagon. Let’s be honest- the film’s title implies a silly, over-the-top slasher film that will ...Read More

Movie Review: ‘Fool’s Paradise’

Greetings again from the darkness. “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” is in its 18th year, having aired 165 episodes, not counting endless reruns in syndication. A huge part of the series’ success is the comedic talent and writing ability of Charlie Day. That success ...Read More
