      Alix Turner Ready Steady Cut Addiction, sex, and the complexity of mistrust all feature strongly in this simple yet abstract horror from B. Harrison Smith. Fascinating and horribly delicious. Rated: 4/5 Feb 14, 2021 Full Review Michelle Swope Dread Central The Special is not a love story. It is a lesson and it is taught phenomenally well. Rated: 4/5 Nov 6, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Brad P The Special is a story of loneliness and addiction with a supernatural sexual twist Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Nice surprise for "The Twilight Zone" fans. Original and crazy, worth the time. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Slow moving shaggy dog story. You can see the gag about half way through and then it's juts letting it spool out until the very predictable ending. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the strangest but most intriguing movies I've seen in a while. Go into this movie without knowing anything and it will be that much more satisfying. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The acting is not exactly stellar but at least this is DIFFERENT! I am a horror hound and I am so sick of reading the same teasers over and over: Professor goes back to her home town after her mother's death and finds her childhood fears were...REAL!!!! Family moves into a house that was great deal...OR WAS IT?!!! Y A W N. This is good indie with worth the wait for the end. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review william r I don't know if that was supposed to be funny, but I found myself absolutely losing it during this one. By far some of the most incompetent filmmaking I've ever seen, but it does cross over into "so bad it's good" territory if you're into that. Edit: I'm changing my review from 2 to 5 stars. This is now my favorite bad movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
