A PAIR OF HORROR STORIES

 

For Hicksflicks.com, Friday, Jan. 5, 2018

Just two new movies in town this weekend, the 2017 sports biography “I, Tonya,” which has been playing in the big cities to rack up positive word of mouth and qualify for Oscar consideration, along with the fourth film in the “Insidious” franchise.

“I, Tonya” (R). Built as a very dark satire, this one is about figure skater Tonya Harding, and the film pays particular attention to 1994 attack on Nancy Kerrigan, which became an Olympics scandal. Margot Robbie stars, with Allison Janney as her shrewish mother.

‘Insidious: The Last Key” (PG-13). This time out, parapsychologist Elise Rainier investigates supernatural disturbances in the home of a New Mexico family, which proves to be the home of her childhood. Rose Byrne and Patrick Wilson make token appearances.
