The 1960s produced a plethora of now-legendary horror films. “Psycho,” “The Birds” and “Rosemary’s Baby” are just a few of the titles that often dominate lists of Halloween classics. But just as significant are their lower-budget contemporaries which pack an equally-eerie punch without...

Michael Showalter’s “The Lovebirds” is a thrilling romantic comedy that blends themes of prejudice and self-discovery with decent execution. The film’s diverse casting is somewhat rare for America’s big screen, but not entirely unheard of: It spotlights an interracial relationship between...
