Inspector Hazel Micallef, a police detective living with her mother Emily in the small rural Ontario town of Fort Dundas, has her normally quiet routine interrupted when she is called to check in on elderly woman Delia Chandler and instead finds Chandler gruesomely murdered with her face moulded into an apparent open-mouthed scream. Informed by the local coroner that shaping the face would have required the killer to hold it in position for at least an hour post-mortem, Micallef begins to consider that she is dealing with more than a simple killing.

These Limited Releases are Cursed

August 29th, 2014

Swearnet: The Movie poster

It's not a great week for limited releases as there are only two films earning overwhelmingly positive reviews: The Congress and Starred Up. Both of those films are playing on Video on Demand as well, so their box office numbers are likely going to be weaker than their Tomatometer Scores. Cantinflas does have an outside shot at tenth place, so at least there's some good news as far as limited releases are concerned. Swearnet: The Movie might turn out to be the biggest hit of the weekend north of the border, but it doesn't open in the States till next month. More...
