Review: With Sinister 'The Sacrament' Ti West Transcends A Done-To-Death Genre

June 5th, 2014 11:15am EDT
Review: With Sinister 'The Sacrament' Ti West Transcends A Done-
I’ll admit it - I’m so sick of found footage flicks. What started as a clever and cheap device for filmmakers Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez back in 1999 for their breakout horror flick "The Blair Witch Project" (not the first of course, but certainly the most prolific!) has spawned so many subpar films that it’s all but exhausted every aspect of the first person camera movement. And yet with his uncanny ability to manipulate tone and pace effectively, "The House of the Devil" and "The Innkeepers" filmmaker Ti West manages with his latest film "The Sacrament" to transcend and actually ...

IFF Boston Review: ‘V/H/S’

April 29th, 2012 1:07pm EDT
VHS 2
“V/H/S” is a brilliant horror anthology premise. A group of a-hole punks, who video tape their crimes of vandalism and harassment, are hired to pilfer a VHS tape from an old man. Through grainy, found footage we watch their late night break in as if we’re right there with them. What should be a straightforward task immediately turns complicated however, once they find piles of tapes scattered all over the house. Not knowing which one is their intended prize, they are forced to watch them individually in the hope of figuring it out.

So five screwed up vignettes by nine different horror dire...

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies
Sadly last week I had to miss “The Grey” due to some other commitments that popped up. I was excited to see it, so I’ll try and get to it soon. However as promised, I did post my interview with “Man on a Ledge” star Elizabeth Banks. Definitely give it a read if you haven’t already.

This week horror dominates the lineup at the box office with the Daniel Radcliffe period piece “The Woman in Black,” the mysterious sci-fi horror/thriller “Chronicle,” the low-budget haunted house movie “The Innkeepers,” and the sappy whale rescue tale “Big Miracle.”

MY PICK FOR THE WEEK: The Woman in B...

Innkeepers
I won't mince words – Ti West has truly become one of our most thoughtful and suspenseful filmmakers. Never one to rush a moment, story or character, West continues to gleefully make films that take their time and his work has become more and more fascinating to watch. His latest outing titled "The Innkeepers" is yet another alluring story befitting of Ti’s unique sensibility complete with ghosts and geeks.

Ti West
In just a few short years, filmmaker Ti West has carved out quite a name for himself. Having made the highly memorable films "The Wicked," "The Roost," and "Trigger Man," Ti found himself becoming even more of a genre household name with the standout flick "The House of the Devil." But having had creative differences with both Lionsgate over "Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever" and a proposed sequel to "A Haunting in Connecticut," the talented Ti recently decided to go back and make a movie his way. The result is the new film "The Innkeepers" (currently available via VOD and in select theaters ...

Innkeepers
Having played more then her share of memorable weighty roles in films like the remake of "Last House on the Left" and "Shark Night 3D," actress Sara Paxton has already proved she can do drama like a pro. But leave it to the likes of talented filmmaker to watch Ti "The House of the Devil" West to help bring out a different side of the actress audiences haven’t yet seen – delightfully quirky. In the new eerie thriller "The Innkeepers" (currently available via VOD and in select theaters on Feb. 3 from the great Magnolia Pictures!), Paxton plays the inquisitive Claire, an employee of the fame...
