Will Lasley

I’m an actor and director of stage and screen (mostly nonprofessionally so far). But I also dabble in standup, and on this site, horror movie criticism. I’m just a guy who loves horror movies, and I like to share that love with the world.

How does it work?

    'Beneath Us' Movie Review

    Beneath Us is about a very timely subject: immigration. More specifically, it’s about undocumented immigrants and their inherent struggles. Two brothers, Alejandro (Rigo Sanchez) and Memo (Josue Aguirre), have come to America looking to make some money to support their families back in Mexico. They, along with some other undocumented workers (Roberto “Sanz” Sanchez, Thomas Chavira, Nicholas Gonzalez), are hired by an affluent white couple, Liz and Ben Rhodes (Lynn Collins, James Tupper), to do some work on their house. But Liz and Ben decide to use this opportunity to indulge in their more sadistic tendencies, and they demean and torture the poor workers. Knowing that they can’t contact law enforcement, Alejandro, Memo, and the rest must figure out a way to survive and escape.

    From longtime horror film producer, but first time director, Ant Timpson, Come to Daddy is the classic tale of a son, Norval (Elijah Wood), attempting to reconnect with his estranged father (Stephen McHattie), who abandoned him and his mother when Norval was little. However, Norval’s dad is extremely competitive and macho, and in an effort to gain his respect, Norval keeps trying to impress him. But their pissing contest goes horribly awry, and it leads down a dark and twisted rabbit hole.
