Sinister (film review) – Frank’s Take.

Director/co-writer Scott Derrickson (‘The Exorcism Of Emily Rose’) creates a slow burn of macabre-oriented mayhem in the creepy caper ‘Sinister’. Derrickson and fellow scriber C. Robert Cargill churn out a traditional yet hackneyed horror showcase that marches to the beat of the same dreary drum. ‘Sinister’ features the conventional atmospherics of titillating tactics concerning a […]

V/H/S film review (Frank’s Take).

It is one thing to grasp the copycat concept of capitalising on a clever trend in horror moviemaking and extending the gruesome appeal into something more mainstream and profitable. However, when the so-called trend is beaten to death at the hands of clumsy opportunists looking to milk the genre for what it is worth then […]

Taken 2, film review (Frank’s Take).

Liam Neeson is out for blood yet again in the sequel ‘Taken 2′, a frenzied follow-up to the original 2008 spy actioner that starred the stoic Oscar-nominated actor. Neeson reprises his role as ex-CIA agent Bryan Mills whose entanglement with the bad guys goes through the chaotic motions in tedious, exaggerated fashion. Prolonged and strained, […]
