<![CDATA[The Frankenstein Theory - The modern prometheus gets a modern movie update.]]> The Frankenstein Theory is like no other Frankenstein film you've seen: rendered in found footage. ]]> <![CDATA[Sinister - Ethan Hawke finds something 'Sinister' in his new home, and it makes for ideal Halloween-season viewing.]]> Although horror movies rarely scare me, I love them. The most I can hope for is to be creeped out sufficiently, and Sinister satisfies that bill. ]]> <![CDATA[The Human Centipede II - ‘The Human Centipede II’ madman’s got legs, and he knows how to use them. You’ve been warned.]]> Anyone who can recall our review last year of “The Human Centipede (First Sequence)” may remember an observation that the film’s events weren’t as graphic as everyone expected — that they could’ve been much worse. ]]> <![CDATA[Don't Be Afraid of the Dark - ‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ reminds one of the superior scary movie.]]>

But as long as you know that …]]> Last summer, the fourth “Final Destination” movie swapped a numeral for a definitive article, because producers figured the franchise had run its course. Then “The Final Destination” made $181 million worldwide, so this summer, we have another chapter, and the numbering system has been reinstated.]]> <![CDATA[Scream 4 - From a 'Scream' to a whisper]]> To place "Scream 4" within its franchise, let's talk superlatives: It's the bloodiest, the shortest and the least satisfying.]]> <![CDATA[Insidious - Some of the most effective scares I’ve ever seen on the big screen]]> Having moved homes last month, I know the inherent horrors of settling in to a new residence.
