7/10 100% Other Music (2020) Other Music makes a case for the continued preservation of cherished public spaces that cultivate a sense of belonging amongst likeminded people - and will definitely make you look up a new band or two. ‐ Exclaim!

7/10 71% Vivarium (2020) It's at times baffling, but the surreal web Vivarium draws us into via exceptionally strong production design makes it easier to wave off narrative inconsistencies.‐ Exclaim!

6/10 65% Annabelle Comes Home (2019) Annabelle Comes Home isn't much more than spooky funhouse nonsense, but that's all it needs to be - and for the third film in a spinoff franchise, that's pretty darn good.‐ Exclaim!

8/10 83% Midsommar (2019) As symbolically rich as a Jodorowsky hippie acid trip with the pagan matriarchal horror of The Wicker Man, Midsommar feels like a nightmare that started off as a dream.‐ Exclaim!

6/10 78% Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) Format-wise, the film may have benefited from being a more straightforward anthology of shorts based on the stories, which were effective because they were so brutally concise.‐ Exclaim!

6/10 24% The Kitchen (2019) Dramatic moments can and do work within dark comedies, and vice-versa - but by being both at once, The Kitchen ends up giving its audience cinematic whiplash.‐ Exclaim!

7 96% The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019) It's elevated beyond cloying corniness by the naturalness of its performances, from Zack Gottsagen's unstoppable energy to Shia LaBeouf's quiet warmth and crushed-but-not-broken spirit. ‐ Exclaim!

100% Love & Peace (2015) Love and Peace bounces from rock-n-roll cautionary tale to cheesy Muppets Christmas fable to rom-com to kaiju movie, never once landing on boring.‐ Ghastly Grinning

8/10 88% Ready or Not (2019) A madcap cat-and-mouse game that's exhilaratingly fun...and offers a darkly funny and satirical take on just how ridiculous the rich really are.‐ Exclaim!

7/10 63% It Chapter Two (2019) As a cohesive unit, this older Losers Club lacks the naturalness and energy that led to the original seven kids being such engaging presences.‐ Exclaim!

7/10 97% Harpoon (2019) At its core, Harpoon isn't aiming for deep statements about the human condition, opting instead to spin a fun, bloody yarn. ‐ Exclaim!

7/10 64% Paradise Hills (2019) Director Alice Waddington's feature debut, Paradise Hills, is the very definition of style over substance - but that's not necessarily a bad thing. ‐ Exclaim!

6/10 74% The Wretched (2020) The Wretched's style harkens back to late '90s / early 2000s horror that revels in moments of corny, deranged, gleefully freaky fun, like a Goosebumps episode for adults.‐ Exclaim!

7/10 100% She Never Died (2019) Packages a story about trauma and strength within a fun, action-packed sequel that stands tall on its own, with an incredible star turn from lead actor Olunike Adeliyi.‐ Exclaim!

6/10 86% Come to Daddy (2020) McHattie and Wood have great dramatic and comedic chemistry, but Come to Daddy never regains the first half-hour's sense of bizzaro tension.‐ Exclaim!
