THE DARK Film Review, Tribeca Film Festival

By Gregg W. Morris, April 25, 2018

A really touching scene in this ferocious horror movie. Picture by Christopher Katsarov

Director-Writer Justin P. Lange’s decision to make a film about a hideously ferocious, preternaturally powerful, flesh eating monster, which would eventually evoke sympathy and empathy in audiences despite its hellacious savagery with an ax, resulted in THE DARK, one of the best horror movies in recent memory.

THE ENDLESS Film review

By Gregg W. Morris, April 14, 2018

In a telling scene, Shitty Carl, played by a sneering, sardonic James Jordon in a savage, A+ performance, is advising the brothers Justin and Aaron Smith how they can escape a cruel fate awaiting them. “The trick is not to be afraid of something that is horrifying and everyone’s afraid of it,” says Shitty Carl. “But if you let it control you one time, it’s going to control you over and over again.”

The number of times one sees a movie is the best indication of just how good it is. Audiences seeing this movie should be prepared to be looped into an endless experience. A 10-star movie on a five-star scale. Horror? Sci-Fi? Transcendental?

Sinclair Broadcasting Group’s Orwellian Attack on the Press

By Gregg W. Morris
April 3 2018
“The compilation of local news anchors at stations owned by Sinclair Broadcasting Group reading a corporate-mandated script attacking other outlets for producing “biased and false news” went viral,” the Columbia Journalism Review reports. “Deadspin’s Timothy Burke wrote that the journalists looked “like hostages in proof-of-life videos, trying their hardest to spit out words attacking the industry they’d chosen as a life vocation.”
