Call Me Lucky (2015) - Rotten Tomatoes. Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger. Begin Again. Night Moves. There's something kind of flat about Christopher Blauvelt's cinematography, which doesn't carry much flash to compensate for the usual technical shortcomings in an independent film like this, and yet, the drabness of the technical shortcomings, combined with a bleak coloration, compliments the sense of grit that defines what effective aspects there are to this overly subtle drama, and aesthetically speaking, the cinematography really comes to life when Blauvelt's lensing falls over near-haunting visuals that stress a particular setting in a fashion which is sometimes all-out lyrical in its providing memorably beautiful imagery, some of which carries purpose and substance.
This film's subject matter does not make for all that interesting of a story, but themes regarding the lengths certain people will go to do right by the environment are intriguing in their nature, and that establishes plenty of potential for dramatic intrigue.

The 50 Most Genuinely Creepy Horror Movies. They rely on atmosphere and suspense rather than gore and jump-scares.
Here’s our pick of the 50 most genuinely creepy horror movies… Creepy isn’t the same as scary. Films can be scary simply by using loud noises and sudden movements to make their audiences jump; they can play on primal fears and physical reactions to give you a thrill.
