    IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS

    IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS REVIEWED “In the Mouth of Madness” promised a new leg of the Carpenter horror legacy. Sam Neill got the material, Carpenter felt like he was deepening his approach to horror and it rocked a KNB/ILM effects team-up. What could have gone wrong? Well, as...

    BACKTRACK

    BACKTRACK REVIEWED “Backtrack” is proof that Adrien Brody needs more work. While he makes a semi-dull film about ghosts and mental confusion work, there’s not much else to enjoy. There’s plenty to enjoy about the atmosphere, but I can’t say that any of it will stick with you....

    LONG WAY DOWN, A

      THE PLOT THUS FAR Four people meet on New Year’s Eve and form a surrogate family to help one another weather the difficulties of their lives. WHAT WE THOUGHT “A Long Way Down” suffers from what messes up most of the adaptations of Nick Hornby novels. This time,...
