Review by Robert Rosado @Robby_Horror

“I’ve got a story for you,” a provocative invitation that can yield many disparate outcomes and consequences. It is typically meant to include the listener in a humorous anecdote, or for telling tales out of school. But in Cody Calahan’s sinister thriller, The Oak Room, it is the hook with which to lure the viewer in, layering one twist after another, not allowing the tension to abate until the closing shot.

During a raging blizzard, drifter Steve (RJ Mitte) goes back to his hometown to retrieve his father’s cremated remains from grizzled bartender and family…

Review by Jason Godbey, Creative Director, Behind the Rabbit Productions

Protests, armored car heists, revolutionaries, fugitives on the run from the FBI all sound like something out of a Hollywood blockbuster, but they are all part of Dope Is Death, a documentary about the young men and women who brought healthcare to an underserved community in East Harlem and the South Bronx.

It’s 1973 and New York City is about to explode with revolution. In the late 60s and early 70s New York was plagued by heroin. The number of addicts was growing, and nothing was being done about…

Jamie Dornan and Anthony Mackie in Synchronic

Review by Jason Godbey

WARNING: MILD SPOILERS FOR SYNCHRONIC

This is one of those films that is difficult to review without giving too much away. Synchronic is a film best seen going in cold. Don’t even watch the trailer, just see the movie and then come back to this review.

At first sight, Synchronic appears to be a moody, character-driven piece with some surreal/horrific elements reminiscent of Martin Scorsese’s Bringing Out the Dead (1999), but this film goes beyond the psychological and into the realm of science fiction. You think you’re getting a trippy drug movie with some nightmarish visuals, but it turns out to be something else entirely.


This release comes to us from Uncork’d Entertainment.

Renowned British actor and international award-winning producer, Mem Ferda is once again getting ready to shock and delight audiences with his latest screen epic Ghost Town. Combining the danger, drama, and passion of the American frontier with a supernaturally-charged mystery and suspense story, the new film promises plenty of pistols, premonitions, and Painted Ladies of the Old West, with an unbelievable ending you won’t be able to forget.

Ghost Town transports viewers back to America’s desolate Midwest in the 1870s, following Soloman — a drifter by nature — as he accepts a…
