  • With apologies to George A. Romero and the impending zombie apocalypse, The Eclipse may be the most realistic film where something dead comes to life and tries to feast on human flesh. Read more: show more

  • A leisurely and quite lovely drama that honors the conventions of gothic ghost stories without the slightest stain of self-irony. show more

  • As for the scary business - it is, indeed, scary, delivered with an intensity that will make you think twice the next time you find yourself driving alone, or opening a closet door when no one else happens to be around. show more
