Consensus: The Void offers a nostalgic rush for fans of low-budget 1980s horror -- and legitimate thrills for hardcore genre enthusiasts of all ages.

"The Void" gets louder, grosser and more stupid the further it progresses, becoming an endurance test in its final sequences.

People live, people die, monsters creep out of the shadows, but it's all a little too formulaic, cynical, and ... well, boring.

One of the more action-packed features to come from the current crop of John Carpenter-inspired filmmakers, The Void finds collaborators Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski going much further than many of their peers.

The movie is poised to punch a tension-filled ticket, but veers off into a heap of dimly explained gobbledegook about mad attempts to outwit death.

An unsuspenseful and bore of a movie.

Where do you even begin with a film such as The Void? This is a legitimate question, like where do you even begin? The film covers so much ground despite… More

I have mixed feelings on this film, on one hand the tone is dead on but on the other hand the film is flawed by a shallow plot line. The film has a very slow… More
