Upgrade (2018)

Set in the near-future, technology controls nearly all aspects of life. But when the world of Grey, a self-labeled technophobe, is turned upside down, his only hope for revenge is an experimental computer chip implant.

My thoughts: he hyper-kinetic action sequences are inspired, but the script much less so. Still, while predictable, the humor and 80’s schlock sci-fi style really carry this film.


Starry Eyes (2014)

A hopeful young starlet uncovers the ominous origins of the Hollywood elite and enters into a deadly agreement in exchange for fame and fortune.

My thoughts: Satirical, cynical, scary, and smart, it does lose steam in its closing act but nevertheless has a lot to say about Hollyweird.


The Endless (2017)

As kids, they escaped a UFO death cult. Now, two adult brothers seek answers after an old videotape surfaces and brings them back to where they began.

My thoughts: I really liked the brotherly bond at the heart of this time-trippy scifi-horror movie.


We Are Still Here (2015)

In the cold, wintery fields of New England, a lonely old house wakes up every thirty years – and demands a sacrifice.

My thoughts: Shaky direction, questionable and confusing plotting, and its low budget work against it.


The Conspiracy (2012)

A documentary about conspiracy theories takes a horrific turn after the filmmakers uncover an ancient and dangerous secret society.

A terrific twist on the found footage concept. Undoubtedly more eerily effective today than when it was first was released ten years ago.

  1. We Are Still Here – Oh man, you know I love a haunted house! You could do a series where a family lives in an old haunted house handed down in the family and they can’t afford to move so they have to put up with all the spooky things going on. And they do not have a dog or cat! (I can’t bare to see frightened animals)

  2. Hi Joe!!! 4/5 for the last movie but no comment? It had to be good for a 4.0 rating!!
