Review: Lost Solace

A swindling con artist starts to gain feelings and begins to question his life choices and actions more than he ever has. Shown in one of the Discovery Screens at this year’s Frightfest, Chris Scheuerman’s intriguing psychological thriller is ambiguous and invigorating.

Review: The Conjuring 2

Lorraine and Ed Warren travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.

Review: 10 Cloverfield Lane

After getting in a car accident, a woman is held in a shelter with two men, who claim the outside world is affected by a widespread chemical attack. I never saw the first Cloverfield movie and it sits within my pile of DVDs I still have to watch. So as I write this I can…
