Katharina Behrens and Adam Hoya smile and embrace in the movie BlissBLISS

“The drama here comes from the question of whether these two souls — one older than her years, the other weary before her time — will find a way to meet, and stick, in the middle.” – Kilian Melloy, EDGE Media Network

 

 

Zach Villa in the movie HypochondriacHYPOCHONDRIAC

“Heimann crafts a tidy little thriller that works all the better for including a realistic same-sex relationship, though one can’t help wishing he’d done more with the real-life horrors around the health disparities LGBTQ+ people encounter
from a too-often biased health care system.”
Kilian Melloy, EDGE Media Network

 

Amber Midthunder hides from a Predator behind a tree in the movie PreyPREY

“At the film’s heart is the same bag of tricks we’ve seen in previous installments of the franchise. But the movie also confounds typical tropes, and (mostly) insists on earning its departures.” – Kilian Melloy, EDGE Media Network

Jim Mahoney laughs maniacally while Emmy Raver-Lampman, Jon Bass, and Sarunas J. Jackson look terrified in the film Gatlopp: Hell of a GameGATLOPP: HELL OF A GAME

“Clearly done on a relatively tight budget, it’s essentially a cross between a sitcom and supernatural horror film, although the horror is more in the threat than in any real violence, save for an arrow that punishes the wrong person, and even that’s played more for laughs than for gore.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
