‘Dorothy Mills’ – This Unsettling Irish Horror Gem Is Full of Surprises

Viking Wolf, billed as Norway’s first werewolf movie, delivers as promised. This recent Netflix acquisition doesn’t mislead its audience; there is definitely a wild lycan on the loose in a small Norwegian town.

‘A Lot of Nothing’ Review – An Incoherent Social Thriller

The directorial debut from actor Mo McRae isn’t a traditional thriller about racism. In fact, the opening scene of A Lot of Nothing is more dramatic than it is exciting or suspenseful.
