Don’t Breathe: (In theaters now!)
This film is nothing short of a cinematic masterpiece. It manages to follow the normal plot development seen in numerous horror movies, as well as incorporate several clichés seen in the cinematic universe. Yet, it somehow manages to be unpredictable. The storyline was a little unbelievable initially; the three friends were prompted to burglarize the home of a disabled war veteran based on an unsubstantiated claim that he had inherited a hefty fortune. However, once the film developed and unraveled, the audience slid to the edge of their seats in anticipation and often slammed to the back of their seats in fear. Don’t Breathe is without a doubt one of the best modern horror films this generation of moviegoers has yet to witness.
Kill Command: (coming soon to stream…was in the theaters May 2016)
Set in a futuristic society where humans can be merged with technology, Kill Command is the perfect blend of science fiction and horror to create a thriller that gnaws at the omnipresent rhetoric of machines acquiring the ability to overpower man. In the film, a diverse group of soldiers are called into a base for a training exercise utilizing a newly manufactured robot that soon gains sentience. The film takes little time to get to the gory deaths, and as the plot progresses, more is revealed about the truth behind the nature of the experiment and the soldiers. For anyone interested in movies that toy with the apocalyptic scenario of machines taking over the world, this is definitely the movie for you.
