title: The Shining function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Warner Home Video starring: Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd, Scatman Crothers release year: 1980 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Almost 20 years after its initial release, ‘The Shining’ remains one mind-blowingly scary haunted house film. Director Stanley Kubrick up with one spine-freezing image after another and induces a relentless sense of dread. It’s possible to feel that stars Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall are overdoing things a bit and still get completely sucked into the film’s tension and terror.

title: The Fall Of The House Of Usher function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: MGM/UA Home Video MPAA rating: NR starring: Vincent Price, Mark Damon, Myrna Fahey, Harry Ellerbe release year: 1960 film rating: Four-and-a-half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren In the late 1950s, low budget science fiction and horror movies began to slack off with the advent of Hammer films from England -- period settings, good acting, excellent sets and rich color set them apart from the black-and-white, contemporary American films. Furthermore, Roger Corman, practically a one-man studio, began to weary of the endless string of low-budgeters he was making for Allied Artists and, principally, American International.

title: Bless The Child function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Paramount Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Kim Basinger, Jimmy Smits, Rufus Sewell, Christina Ricci release year: 2000 film rating: Two Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein The last two years have seen a surprising amount of entries in an odd subgenre: big studio Catholic horror movies. First Patricia Arquette coped with both priestly and demonic possession in "Stigmata." Then Arnold Schwarzenegger strove to prevent Satan from fathering a child in "End of Days." More recently, Winona Ryder tried to stop Lucifer from taking over an unbeliever in "Lost Souls." While there have been some excellent Catholic horror movies in the past ("The Exorcist" comes to mind), all of the newer ones have ranked somewhere on the gonzo meter. However, the silliest so far is arguably "Bless the Child," with Kim Basinger as the foster mother of a young potential saint beset by evil forces. Basinger’s Maggie O’Connor is a staid-seeming Manhattan psychiatric nurse whose life is thrown ...

title: Python function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: 20th Century Fox Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Jenny McCarthy, William Zabka, Wil Wheaton, Frayne Rosenoff, Casper Van Dien, Robert Englund release year: 2000 film rating: Two Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein If you’re a fan of schlocky horror movies, you will find comfort in "Python." The film bears a 2000 copyright, but it could have been made at just about any point in the past 30 years. Yes, the CGI is a bit better than it would have been a decade ago – in fact, it looks a lot like the type found in inexpensive syndicated fantasy TV shows today – but the obsessed researcher, gung-ho but ineffectual military types, endangered young people and the enormous, nasty creature on the loose in an inexpensive location are all perennials.

title: Portrait Of Jennie function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Joseph Cotten, Jennifer Jones, Ethel Barrymore, David Wayne, Cecil Kellaway, Lillian Gish, Albert Sharpe, Henry Hull release year: 1948 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren This somber but deliriously romantic movie is a great favorite of people the world over, largely because of its superb black-and-white photography of New York city. It was the greatest triumph of the master cinematographer Joseph H. August, who died just as shooting ended. 'Portrait of Jennie' was one of the first major films to do extensive location work in New York, and the effort made to shoot on the streets and in Central Park really pays off: this unusual fantasy is given a solid foundation in reality -- while the city itself is shot in such a way that it meets the film halfway, becomes dream-like, almost surreal. The best scenes in the film represent some of the finest black-and-white photography of ...
