    It Follows
    "[A] smart, relentlessly chilling thriller that opts for originality over cheaply rejiggered jolts. "
    - Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times
    "It Follows pretty much earns its buzz as the scariest and best-engineered American horror movie of recent years… "
    - Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
    "Mitchell’s deft handling of the relationships in It Follows gets threaded into an ingenious and exceedingly skillful creepshow. "
    - Scott Tobias, The Dissolve
    "From the opening moments, the one thing clear about It Follows is that it will not follow in everyone else’s footsteps. "
    - Bob Mondello, NPR
    "Mitchell brings off some sensational setpieces of fear and suspense. I can’t remember when I was last so royally freaked out in the cinema. "
    - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
    "Its thematic textures run deep, but the picture retains real visceral force. "
    - Craig Williams, CineVue
    "Despite borrowing cleverly from the best, It Follows still manages to feel like no other example in recent years - tender, remarkably ingenious and scalp-pricklingly scary. "
    - Tim Robey, The Telegraph
  • The Imitation Game

    1:30pm

    The Imitation Game
    "This suspenseful drama reveals pieces of its puzzle steadily and slowly, until the final heartrending picture can be seen at last. "
    - Lawrence Toppman, Charlotte Observer
    "Another must-see movie this year-end awards season (the other one is The Theory of Everything) is the brilliant encapsulation of one of the greatest stories of our time — the genius, heroism and ultimately shameful destruction of Alan Turing. "
    - Rex Reed, The New York Observer
    "On its bright face, The Imitation Game, written by Graham Moore and directed by Morten Tyldum, fits into that cozy genre of tortured-genius biopics that sprout like kudzu just in time for the Oscars. But that’s not fair to the film, which outthinks and outplays other examples of the genre. "
    - Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
    "The disturbing, involving, always-complex story of British mathematician Alan Turing is a tale crafted to resonate for our time, and the smartly entertaining The Imitation Game gives it the kind of crackerjack cinematic presentation that’s pure pleasure to experience. "
    - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
    "Many of the people reading this review are doing it on a computer. And all of them are reading it in English. It’s not much of stretch to say that you could credit both of those things to a man named Alan Turing. "
    - Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

  • What We Do in the Shadows

    4:00pm

    What We Do in the Shadows
    "It’s a cheerfully horrific affair, a sanguine comedy that feels more than a bit like a Christopher Guest farce or an elaborate Monty Python sketch, imprinted with the Kiwi comic sensibilities of co-directors Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi. "
    - Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
    "A surprisingly delicate vampire spoof that’s both hilarious and respectful, and that captures all the silliest, scariest and saddest aspects of the bloodsucking tradition in one delicious package. "
    - Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
    "An irrepressibly charming B-movie that never over-stays its welcome, and is both conceptually clever and admirably well-executed. "
    - Simon Abrams, RogerEbert.com
    "What We Do in the Shadows has nonmedicinal virtues that many large-scale movies lack: unflagging energy, entertaining inventiveness, sustained ridiculousness and even, dare I say it, a spasm of eloquence in Deacon’s twisted tribute to the frailties of the human race. "
    - Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
