THE STYLIST

I was really impressed with Jill Gevargizian’s short film THE STYLIST (2016), and have been awaiting her feature expansion of the story starring the same fantastic lead actress, Najarra Townsend.  Shy stylist Claire (Townsend) has a killer vintage fashion sense, and a sweet little doggo as a companion. She spends her days grabbing chai lattes

THE QUEEN OF BLACK MAGIC

Theme: BUGS. Lots of them. Crawling all over and INSIDE and just AUGH. Basically Director Kimo Stamboel made sure THE QUEEN OF BLACK MAGIC was filled with every single thing that would make me squirm!  Childhood friends Hanif (Ario Bayu), Anton (Tanta Ginting), and Jefri (Miller Khan) bring their fams to the orphanage they all

SPIRAL

You know I’m here for “terror in the suburbs” stories, and SPIRAL offers that up with a queer focus and some great surprises.  Malik (Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman) and his husband Aaron (Ari Cohen) move to a small town to get away from noisy city life and Aaron’s toxic ex-wife with Aaron’s 16-year-old daughter Kayla (Jennifer Laporte)

RANDOM ACTS OF VIOLENCE

Jay Baruchel is not fucking around! RANDOM ACTS OF VIOLENCE is a genuinely terrifying film, and a must-see for genre fans.  The film is an adaptation of the 2010 one-shot graphic novel by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti, a meta-horror story of two comic book creators whose character inspires a real serial killer to replicate
