We Still Kill The Old Way – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: We Still Kill The The Old Way is yet another British crime revenge thriller.  What makes WSKTOW stand out from what is a very crowded field is the combination of a very lean story and a very strong cast.  Heading the cast is British mainstay Ian Ogilvy, shining is a role tailor made for his suave cool. ...

Cabin Fever (2016) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Ugh.  If ever a remake didn’t need to be, this “Lets use the exact script and almost film shot of shot” version of Eli Roth’s original Cabin Fever rates right up there with that horrid Psycho movie.  Nothing here really works, much like it didn’t the first time.  Vapid characters, piss poor script and scares right ...
