The Conjuring 2

Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R, PG-13 and PG-13 Horror rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative [...]

Furious 7

April 3, 2015
"Furious 7" has an action-packed and fast-paced plot, as one would suspect. It also features the last performance of Paul Walker as Brian O'Conner; as most people probably know, Walker died near the end of making this movie. To the filmmakers' credit, they give him an appropriate send-off in the [...]

Insidious: Chapter 2

September 13, 2013
Someone who likes jump scenes asked me after I viewed this film if there were some included. "You would be happy, there are plenty" I replied. Unfortunately, for those looking for a scary movie that families can share together, this isn't it. There are some occult practices in it including a [...]

These elements are disturbing enough with several "jump" scenes along the way. In the end, good wins over evil - or does [...]

Death Sentence

Kevin Bacon gives a good performance in “Death Sentence” as a man who decides to administer his own brand of vigilante justice after his son is murdered. When he hears that his son’s killer will likely spend only 3 to 5 years in prison, he seeks violent revenge and sinks to the level of the [...]

Dead Silence

March 16, 2007
I don’t normally watch movies about evil dolls, so I don’t know how “Dead Silence” compares to other movies in this genre. I can say, however, that “Dead Silence” is one of the least entertaining movies that I have seen this year. The plot revolves around a small town with a creepy [...]
