Film Review: ISABELLE (2018)


ISABELLE ** Canada / USA 2018 Dir: Robert Heydon. 80 mins

We’ve had ANNABELLE (twice) and JESSABELLE, so it figures that ISABELLE would show up at some point. Here, THE O.C.’s eternally youthful Adam Brody and heavily pregnant music teacher wife Amanda Crew move house to raise a family – but everything goes horribly wrong, with the baby still born and Crew herself dying for a minute on the operating table. A sequence of spooky events follows, linked to odd-acting neighbour Sheila McCarthy and the mute daughter with spina bifida who constantly watches them from her bedroom window.

Film Review: AMERICAN ANTICHRIST (2018)


AMERICAN ANTICHRIST * USA 2018 Dir: Dakota Ray. 50 mins

Denver-based filmmaker Dakota Ray’s career to date includes the cheerfully titled THE RISE AND FALL OF AN AMERICAN SCUMBAG and I SPREAD HATE LIKE HERPES. Most movie titles could be improved by the addition of the word “Herpes” – SCHINDLER’S HERPES and JURASSIC HERPES, for example, would have arguably made even more money with a discreet change of name. This self-conscious nihilism-by-numbers offering is further punctuated with pretentious / portentous subtitles like “I Am God- My Drug Induced Ego Trip” and “Revelations: The Sickness of Immorality”.
