“The Huntsman: Winter’s War” is for people who liked “Frozen” but thought it wasn’t angry enough. It’s a sorta-prequel, sorta-sequel to 2012’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” and it’s a total mess. The costumes are gorgeous, though. My 1 1/2-star RogerEbert.com review. Read the review here
The trailers make this creepy-doll horror flick look positively cringe-inducing. Instead, the prequel to “The Conjuring” is just silly and screechy, and — with the exception of a couple of decent jolts — not really scary after all.
