Rarely do we get a psychological flick that is quite this extreme and lacking an ounce of empathy. Anonymous 616 is unforgiving.

So what happens when two couples have a friendly gathering to catch up, have a few drinks and maybe…take some psychedelic drugs? Why, a massacre of epic proportions obviously!

Jason and Jenna are a seemingly happy couple, invited over to Eric’s new house to meet his fiancé Monica and relax before Jason has to deploy back to Iran. The foursome break open the beers, laugh over old times and segue way into a mood altering drug that changes all perspective on relationships and openness. Without much hesitation, Jason and Jenna proceed to join Eric and Monica in a short but sweet trip into the subconscious.

Also known as Zone of the Dead, this marks Serbia's first attempt at a zombie flick and is pretty much what one would expect from an unimaginative low-budget genre effort. At least they got it right by adding genre vet Ken Foree to the cast, but his badassery wasn't enough to save the film from its inevitable low-rating.

I feel like I've been played the fool for actually having wasted the hour-and-a-half of my life watching this garbage. The whole time I felt like I was watching a horrible, cheesy day-time soap. It's no surprise that this went straight to DVD. I actually liked the original movie, so naturally I hated the idea of a remake. I knew right away that with a cast like this and the mediocre directors behind the camera, that this would end up as just another forgettable remake, however, I didn't expect the movie to actually turn out as bad as it did.

Although the general idea behind the two movies remain the same, the storyline has been changed dramatically. Now, instead of following a group of teenage friends on a trip to a rich friend's vacation home, we've got a group of young rich snobs getting together at a couple uber-rich siblings' party on April 1st. The host of the party is the much-hated "Desiree," who makes it a point to play numerous pranks on her various guests each year she has this get-together. Only this time the joke is on her and her circle of friends, after one of them falls off a balcony when a prank goes bad. After the incident was publicized in the media, and the friends get off without any jail time, a year passes and the dreaded day returns.

Alexandre Courtes makes his debut with Asylum Blackout, a film that went under the title The Incident during its festival run, but was renamed (a couple times) after it was picked up by IFC. The flick is a surprisingly decent debut, but unfortunately tries to be smarter than it actually is by delivering an unnecessarily ambiguous ending. However, for the most part, it wasn't a bad watch.

The story focuses on a group of friends/band mates that work in the kitchen at a local asylum when they're not off trying to put together a record. During one particular night the power goes out due to a heavy thunderstorm, causing the inmates to get a little rowdy, which eventually evolves into a full on riot.  While most of the staff are dead or missing, the remaining band mates must attempt to survive through the night, as they await aid from the police.

The Pact writer/director Nicholas McCarthy is back with At the Devil's Door (previously titled Home) and once again doesn't disappoint, offering that great atmosphere and creepiness we saw in The Pact in this latest effort. Unfortunately the similarities between the two also kind of hurt it in certain aspects, but not enough to warrant a negative review, as it's still better in many ways than a majority of the indie horror we get lately.

It's hard to properly write and execute a good film when it's centered around only a few characters in one location and ATM is no different, in fact, it's pretty much what you'd expect it to be -- from the idiotic characters making many illogical decisions, to the killer having little-to-no motive for everything that transpired. As interesting as it managed to be, you'd have to really ignore all the holes in the script to enjoy this.

The "story" focuses on a few co-workers as they head home during the holidays, but make a quick stop at a nearby ATM first, so one of'em can get some cash and grab a bite to eat. Naturally it takes three people to withdraw from an ATM, so they all crowd around the machine and as they're about to leave they spot a large creeper in a coat standing in the distance between them and the parked car. Their fears of being robbed turn for the worst when they witness the mystery man violently murder a passerby, who was simply walking his dog. Now the trio are tripped within the confines of the ATM, while the coated man on the outside tries to flush them out.

Personal and character driven are not really the words you would normally use to describe a movie put out by Syfy Films. But that’s the kind of film that is really at the heart of Atomica. Sure, it sounds like some superhero that got her power by being pushed into a vat of radioactive seaweed but the movie is way more insightful. It’s the future!! Sarah Habel plays a nuclear engineering technician tasked with investigating why one of the largest nuclear power sources in the world has lost communications with the company that owns it. Upon arriving she discovers not everything is as it seems when she comes across deranged janitor/operator Robinson (played excellently by Dominic Monaghan, who most will recognize even without his hobbit gear attached).

Attack the Block is the successful film debut of director Joe Cornish, who primarily helmed UK television comedies until his premiere with this flick. It definitely helps that he's also friends with executive producer Edgar Wright, whom fans may remember as the co-writer/director of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, but I digress.

Attack the Block is a triumphant blend of teen-driven adventure comedies and old school monster flicks, as we follow a group of young inner city hoodlums while they "tool up" and take on what seems to be an alien invasion. After killing a small creature that fell from the sky, the kids find themselves having to protect their block and fend off against a small army of vicious beasts, and teaming up with some of the unlikeliest of allies along the way.

Ava's Possessions (2015)

Jordan Galland
Cast: 
Louisa Krause, Wass Stevens, Whitney Able, John Ventimiglia, Jemima Kirke, Dan Fogler



Ava's Possessions is the latest film to tackle the demonic possession sub-genre, but in its own unique way. While most movies focus on before and during a character's possession, this flick actually takes place after the fact and how it effects the person's life and the people around them. It's a pretty interesting concept that--for the most part--makes for a decent watch, but a simple script, pacing issues and a somewhat rushed third act deter it from being as good as it could've been.
