Assault on Precinct 13

What is the world coming to when the film community is remaking John Carpenter movies? Admittedly, Assault on Precinct 13 isn't the best example of Carpenter's expert craftsmanship, but it was the picture that got him noticed, and that notice enab...

First Purge, The

I feel pretty safe saying The First Purge isn’t going to be a big hit with Donald Trump’s base. With a script that feels more like an anti-Administration screed than a fully fleshed out film, this movie is so overtly “progressive” as t...

Purge, The

Purge, The: Election Year

The Purge: Election Year represents writer/director James DeMonaco’s attempt to squeeze one more movie out of a premise that has run dry. The first movie of the series offered little more than The Concept - an alternate universe tale that took ...

Skinwalkers
