Review:

Will I trepidly sleep tonight? Most definitely! If you ever feel the need to sleep on a friends futon, after watching this movie you might should think again. Oh, and that sound.. just as you are falling asleep…..Yeah, they just might be a friend confessing their deepest, darkest secrets to you just to stay alive. You want to stay alive? Well, confess too!

Ok, as I started my review while watching “The Dwelling” There is a gut-punch moment that I didn’t see coming. “Don’t be scared, just keep your eyes closed” It hit close to home with me.

I’m still processing. This movie kinda messed with me on a couple different levels. Nightmares are not the least.

Would I recommend “The Dwelling”?

If you need sleep, then no! If you want a good horror movie to keep you awake all night, then definitely!

I want to stay awake and watch it where can I:

Well, you will have to wait until November 26th. When Uncork’d Entertainment and Black Fawn Films’ release “The Dwelling” on DVD and VOD.

Until you sleep again here is the trailer:

A cross between E.T and Monster’s Inc, My Pet Dinosaur fixes on the unlikely friendship between a boy and a dinosaur.

Featuring state-of-the-art visual effects, a heart-warming tale of friendship and the beautiful Australian countryside, My Pet Dinosaur is the perfect family treat.

Review:

If I had to pick a late summer movie to curl up with my dinosaur (or any other pet) and watch, this is probably the one. It has everything in a family drama you would want. Yes, you parents will enjoy some of the snarkyness while your kids will enjoy the heart-felt moments. I fell in love with ‘Magnus’ from the moment I saw him. The movie is driven by a very young cast (Dulieu, Wolfe, Williams) who all give an amazing performance.

Would I recommend this movie?

This is a perfect Saturday evening family watch! Snuggle up with your kiddos, make some popcorn and have a great family evening!

Danielle Reverman (Infernal)

Plot:

Review:

Frankly, this movie is truly “Rotten to the core” And, by that, I mean I would eat every apple seed of this movie! Don’t ‘worm’ your way out of seeing it. (ok, done with the puns!)

Actually, I had a lot of fun watching this movie! And don’t the twins look so cute!

cute

In all fairness, this is one of the funniest horror comedies I have seen in a while!

 

Now, let’s all sit down and have a glass of…ummm… Apple cider (last pun):
