Incarnate

Genre: Horror

Directed by: Brad Peyton

Run time: 87 minutes

Rating: PG-13

Format: Blu-Ray

The Lowdown: For every great movie that Blumhouse Productions releases, and there have been a handful, including the recent Split, the company seems to back a B-grade film that revisits familiar ground with dwindling results.

Incarnate is not a bad movie. It’s exactly the type film that used to be released straight to VHS back during the heyday of video-store horror.

The problem is that despite a polished sheen and a capable cast, anchored by Aaron Eckhart, Incarnate feels like a poor-man’s mashup of The Cell, The Matrix and The Exorcist.

You likely will enjoy it, and thankfully it has a brief, fast-paced runtime, but there’s little here to warrant a repeat viewing.

The Stuff You Care About: Hot chicks – Meh.

Nudity – No. Gore – Yes.

Drug use – No.

Bad Guys/Killers – Demons, man.

Buy/Rent – Rent it.

New on Video-on-Demand:

Lavender (AMBI Media Group and Samuel Goldwyn Films, 92 minutes, Unrated, VOD): Is it ever really a good idea for a psychiatrist to advise a troubled patient to go back to the likely root of their mental instability?

Have these people never watched a scary movie?

Lavender, the fourth feature from writer-director Ed Gass-Donnelly, is an above-average ghost story that benefits from a solid cast, led by Abbie Cornish.

It’s definitely worth checking out.
