Review: ‘Psychopaths’ is Fantastic-Looking Horror Missing a Purpose

It’s hard to reject a film as having no substance when its narrator apologizes for that very fact. Was its hollowness therefore an intentional commentary on the empty nihilistic void that we call life or was the filmmaker throwing us for a “meta” loop with a tongue-in-cheek laugh that knowingly commends our having sat through it in its entirety nonetheless? In this vein Mickey Keating’s Psychopaths could be profound or worthless. It could be a full-fledged movie that seeks to entertain in its gratuity or a feature length experiment with kill shots and psychedelic filters to be used in subsequent projects containing a bit more meat on their bones. You can like it or hate it or — like me — appreciate the ride despite its lack of reward.

I’m the latter because I must applaud Keating for making me believe something was coming, some purposeful “a-ha” moment transcending

Movie Review – Novitiate (2017)

Novitiate, 2017.

Written and Directed by Margaret Betts.

Starring Margaret Qualley, Julianne Nicholson, Dianna Agron, Liana Liberato, Denis O’Hare, Eline Powell, Morgan Saylor, Maddie Hasson, Ashley Bell, Chelsea Lopez, Rebecca Dayan, Chris Zylka, and Melissa Leo.

Synopsis:

Set in the early 1960s and during the era of Vatican II, a young woman in training to become a nun struggles with issues of faith, the changing church and sexuality

In the 1960s, as a young 12-year old girl Cathleen (later played by Margaret Qualley as a teenager in a multilayered, quiet, and moving performance) is taken to Catholic church for the first time by her lovingly flawed mother Nora (Julianne Nicholson), and going against typical child beliefs, she states she enjoyed it. “It was peaceful”. This is a stark contrast to her home life where it’s quickly made clear that mommy and daddy are constantly verbally fighting, prompting him to

'Novitiate' Review: And Then There Were Nuns in Stirring, Soulful Convent Drama
Don't mess with Melissa Leo. As Novitiate's Reverend Mother Marie St. Claire, the boss lady who calls the shots at the fictional Tennessee convent where this religious drama is based, the actress gives the kind of bravura performance that not only sparks Oscar talk but richly deserves it. She finds the tyrant in this woman of God without neglecting her aching vulnerability as she tries to hold to the ground while the ground keeps shifting.

The time is 1964, and the Sisters of the Sacred Rose, a cloistered order, are

Official Trailer for Mickey Keating's Horror Thriller Film 'Psychopaths'

"You look like a friendly crowd!" Samuel Goldywn Films recently debuted this official trailer for the new horror thriller titled Psychopaths, which first played at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year.

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Psychopaths’

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Psychopaths’
Devoid of characters or a story about which one might care, “Psychopaths” proves to be a fright-free pastiche without purpose — save, that is, for unimaginatively paying homage to a string of superior genre predecessors. As in his prior “Carnage Park,” writer-director Mickey Keating offers up a schizo nightmare that’s narratively splintered to pieces and rife with nods toward his favorite ’70s and ’80s horror movies. However, there’s so little substance or originality to this lurid, abstract affair that it comes off as simply a faded grindhouse collage. Even in the midnight-movie arena, its dull derivativeness will likely spell its doom.

An introductory video recording of death-row killer Starkweather (Larry Fessenden) ranting and raving about how his “children will inherit the Earth” sets the hysterical and nonsensical tone of “Psychopaths,” whose narrator (Jeff Daniel Phillips) informs us that Starkweather’s prophesy — namely, that his evil spirit will possess other

Great to speak with you today, guys, and I can’t wait to see the movie. So, Mickey, can you discuss what inspired you this time around? From what I've seen from the clips and different publicity materials, this feels like a complete 180 from Carnage Park and your other previous projects.

‘Carnage Park’ DVD Review

Stars: Ashley Bell, Pat Healy, James Landry Hébert, Michael Villar, Bob Bancroft, Larry Fessenden, Graham Skipper, Darby Stanchfield, Alan Ruck | Written and Directed by Mickey Keating

Sometimes I’m sure people think I’m just being contrary in my reviews – there are films I like that Many don’t (if you remember the first Frightfest I covered in 2009 you’ll know what I’m talking about); and there are films that are critically acclaimed, be it by other movie blogs, big name film critics, whomever, that just don’t resonate with me. One such film was Mickey Keating’s previous film Pod. However, not to be put off by one bad experience, and thanks to good word of mouth I decided to give his latest film, Carnage Park, a go…
