Review: Apostle, beware false prophets

A horror film about an unhinged religious cult that tortures folks to “purify” them is exactly as savage and ruthless as you would expect from the dude behind one of the greatest action franchises ever.

Short Round: Whisper, look in the closet

The tech world collides with the supernatural in Julian Terry’s short Whisper, an effortless two minute exercise in nightmare fuel.
