[I]f you're looking to turn out all the lights, pull a blanket up under your chin, and jump several inches off your couch, there's a new bad-seed thriller to adopt today.

It's one of those films that may be overly reliant on jump scares when you tally them all up, but I'd by lying if I didn't admit that a few of them legitimately made me jump.

Z is a small film that transcends the limits of its budget. It's proof that good, old-fashioned story-telling is always more effective than millions of dollars worth of CG explosions.

Z is a film that will have you shrieking in spooky delight one second, and planting a cold ball of anxiety in your gut the next. Legitimately terrifying and a really excellent study in trauma...

June 25, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The plot swerves are too dependent on carefully concealed backstory, and the otherwise deliciously surreal third act accordingly feels somewhat unearned.

June 5, 2020 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Z provides effective scares and at least one moment that made this parent scream in horror. It's doing so many of the right things, but like a puzzle with a few pieces missing, it's hard to see the full picture.
