“US is a formidable horror giant in an already crowded pantheon of modern horror. The genre has always been political, grand, and aggressively honest, and it’s a boon to see that new directors like Peele are ready to carve out their own place in that world.” – Deirdre Crimmins, High-Def Digest

“Jordan Peele has become one of the most talked about men in Hollywood in the past three years, evolving from being a sketch comedy virtuoso to one of the most ambitious horror directors of all time. And in his sophomore film US he does not miss a beat.” – Byron McNeal, Nerd Caliber

“US may be flawed, but it’s well worth seeing. Indeed, if this had been Peele’s first film, we’d be proclaiming him a talent to watch.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

0319_ash2-1000x667ASH IS PUREST WHITE

“In ASH IS PUREST WHITE, the relief from the bootheel of Chinese patriarchy is shown with subtlety and not bombast.” – Sam Cohen, Edge Boston

“This massively entertaining melodrama is deceptively direct in presentation, but a closer look reveals that even the simplest scenes contain multitudes.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

 

aftermathTHE AFTERMATH

“THE AFTERMATH aims for your heart, but it ends up hitting the funny bone. It’s not a bad thing, however, as this incidental effect is what helps an otherwise pedestrian story survive.” – Greg Vellante, Spectrum Culture
