FILM REVIEW: THE VILLAINESS (TORONTO AFTER DARK)

THE VILLAINESS (originally titled Ak-Nyeo) opens with one of the most badass fight scenes in recent memory. Seriously, the opening number (which feels like a single first-person shot) opens with such fire and fury that it’s almost nauseating. I mean that in the best of ways. Playing at this year’s

FILM REVIEW: HAPPY DEATH DAY

HAPPY DEATH DAY is a film that on a quick glance of the trailer could be written off as just another one of the countless whodunit slashers that employs your standard package of the straight-from-central-casting crew of beautiful, white, sun-kissed, cult-like/abusive levels of narcissist personality disorder that are gift-wrapped nicely
