“It doesn’t work, whether you are a devotee of the Schwartz books or just a genre fan looking for a bit of film fun.” – John Black, Gruesome Magazine

“SCARY STORIESdidn’t turn out to be one of those rare PG-13 horror movies that’s actually good.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“Although the book series remains popular, the road is littered with would-be movie franchises that never got beyond the first episode.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“This PG-13 scare-fest may be geared toward teens (a more mature GOOSEBUMPS, if you will), but there are still some images in the film that will be hard to shake for some time. Let’s just say, it’ll be a while before I want someone to hug me again.” – Greg Vellante, EDGE Media Network

Elisabeth Moss, Melissa McCarthy, and Tiffany Haddish are ready for business in the movie The KitchenTHE KITCHEN

“As a crime film it’s a mild diversion, but nothing special. As a metaphor for women struggling to find a place in the world, it takes some surprising turns.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Rigorously entertaining yet stupendously dumb, this is a film that delivers in completely unintentional ways and is more enjoyable because of its flaws.” – Greg Vellante, EDGE Media Network

Aldis Hodge holds Sherri Shepherd in the movie Brian BanksBRIAN BANKS

“…a thoughtful movie that celebrates those who persevere over injustice, but also allows us to see what’s being done in our name.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
