    Review: Greg McLean

    While the politics and film as a whole are not entirely successful, there is much to admire in “Wolf Creek 2,” not the least if which is director Greg McLean’s chutzpah. He is a visually adept filmmaker who makes fine use of the broad canvas that is the outback. Thanks to his skill, this is no cheapo, direct-to-DVD affair, but a well-made horror-thriller that is simply not scary or thrilling enough. Yet it is never, ever dull, and when our star spits out dialogue like “Somebody’s gotta keep Australia beautiful,” well, it’s difficult not to chuckle. Interestingly, Taylor is far and away the most colorful, memorable character onscreen. Of course, I do not think the filmmakers behind “Wolf Creek 2” are in agreement with Taylor’s narrow view of foreigners — and I must note that he doesn’t seem too keen on his fellow Aussies, either — but I do believe Mclean sees him as a rampaging mouthpiece for a certain viewpoint. Perhaps getting the audience to laugh at Taylor’s bat**** belief system is the ultimate goal. If so, mission accomplished. [C+]

    Cannes Review: David Robert Mitchell’s Hotly Buzzed Horror ‘It Follows’ | ThePlaylist

    These and other no doubt overly literal-minded niggles, as well as a general lack of truly frightening moments left our horror itch a little unscratched. Refreshingly unironic in its retro vibe (it nods to the classics, but never winks), for us “It Follows” worked like gangbusters as an exercise in atmosphere and allusion, but a little less so as an out-and-out supernatural horror, and only at certain times did it achieve a perfect synthesis of the two.

    Borgman (2014) Review - Dread Central

    Borgman is not your average cinematic fare. Not by a longshot. It is reminiscent of several films, without actually resembling any of them. It has scenery like The Human Centipede (First Sequence), human burial in the vein of Motel Hell and an ending that is reminiscent to The Woman, but that being said, Borgman is absolutely nothing like any of those movies, aside from the shadow of a memory of those films you'll get by watching it. For a movie with its meaning buried so deep, it's surprisingly easy to enjoy.

    If you like dry wit, some decent drama and a little horrific action - and don't necessarily mind the fact that you don't have a complete handle as to what's going on - then you will definitely dig Borgman. For the more traditional movie viewer, those that need something a little more concrete, this might not suit your fancy, although there is enough dry humor in here to entertain even the stuffiest of stuffed shirts.

    Borgman Review: Alex van Warmerdam's Hypnotic Thriller


    You want to watch Alex van Warmerdam’s Borgman, you just don’t know it yet. Even now, while your instincts tell you to resist its charms, a small part of you knows it’s already too late. Why struggle against it when it feels so good, so right, to simply give in?

    The power of persuasion is at the heart of Borgman and its title character (Jan Bijvoet) even if its ultimate resolution leaves viewers with more questions than answers. The first Dutch film to compete at Cannes in nearly 40 years, Borgman boasts an entrancing visual style coupled with haunting performances and a brand of black humor befitting the frozen plains of Fargo. While the film’s payoff unfortunately comes up a bit short of its promise, it remains a hypnotic journey worthy of contemplation well after it’s over.
