More found footage to creep us out. This time, a true-crime writer (Ethan Hawke) and his family move into a new home with a deep dark history that unspools in the home movies languishing in the attic.  

Brooklyn's Finest (Review)

Star-studded gem shows Antoine Fuqua's training days are over

All of the 'Six Degrees of Separation'/Kevin Bacon mental gamesmanship generated by a star-studded ensemble cast could detract from the simple, propulsive narrative drive of a film like 'Brooklyn's Finest,' but director Antoine Fuqua ('Training Day') boldly dares audiences to play the game anyway. And, for the most part, his gambit pays off. It's a fine example of a filmmaker abiding by the law of the streets. Grade: B-plus.  

Daybreakers (Review)

Sibling Australian filmmakers Michael and Peter Spierig flip Hollywood's teen-friendly vampire trend on its head with 'Daybreakers,' a gory sci-fi world run by a majority population of bloodsuckers. Its greatest achievement could be that it keeps Generation X poster-boy Ethan Hawke in an action setting where his modulated style gets more traction than two Nicolas Cages put together. Grade: B-.
