Movie Review – Chronicle (2012) (PG-13)

Chronicle makes a compelling case for what would happen if a group of teenage boys were to suddenly attain superhuman powers. They would not stare at each other in awe, as if they had just been touched by the hand of God. They would have fun with it, not just at their expense, but also at the expense of others.

Movie Review – The Devil Inside

The horror genre has its fair share of influences, taken from now relatively dated 80’s horror effects, and the slightly more effective 90’s slasher horror arena. Those films were influenced by such horror gems as the originals Halloween and The Exorcist. The Exorcist in particular remains at the pinnacle of the “devil” genre, films that revolve around the concept of demon possession.
