    Come True

    What an unsettling little film. I loved Anthony Scott Burns' previous feature, OUR HOUSE, and his follow-up proves he's one of the best genre filmmakers working right now. COME TRUE takes the documentary THE NIGHTMARE and turns it into a horrifying narrative tale that sends shivers down the spine and features one of the most effective endings I've seen from a horror film in ages. If the idea of 'the shadow man' and night terrors and sleep paralysis give you the willies, this film is going to mess you up.

    Maybe the worst Nic Cage film ever - and THAT is saying something. Ineptly made across the board. The plot makes no sense. The action sequences are so poorly scored and edited that it produces zero tension and zero and feeling of continuity.

I never quite knew where this movie was headed, and that surprised me. The first truly great horror film of 2020, from Leigh Whannell.

    It's the day before college begins. Four attractive white guys and four attractive white girls toss horseshoes, drink beer, and talk about inconsequential white kid problems while indie rock music follows them like the Grim Reaper stalking his next victim. But this film died long before it began with a story that wreaks of zero authenticity. This is not how kids in 2016 talk. This is not how kids in 2016 relate to one another. And this is not how…
