“The Rift” http://horrornews.net/125934/film-review-rift-2016/

U.S. satellite crashes in a remote area of eastern Serbia and a group of American and Serbian agents races to recover the data from it. What they find when they arrive, however, are unimaginable horrors that include a mysterious rift in time and space as well as an unseen malevolent presence. Now the team must fight for both their lives and their sanity as they struggle to escape.

Being a longtime George Romero Dead series fan, I became aware of Ken Foree’s skill at playing the gritted teeth, muscular hero with his cult status cementing turn as Peter in the original Dawn of the Dead. There was a sense of cool and humanity you see in his façade even as he’s mowing down zombies. Foree, in a sense, was the Samuel L. Jackson of B horror before there was ever a Samuel L. Jackson.

Ken Foree, as the stylish wit Hamilton, is genius; he anchors the entire production with his skilled talents, on-screen charisma, and endless, casual zingers. BLOOD BROTHERS www.ew.com

One way the movie threads the right needle between dire stakes and dark humor is with an outstanding Ken Foree supporting performance as a gumshoe with ESP to match his hard-boiled instincts. Relishing quirky lines such as, “like cinnamon and Jesus had a baby!” to praise good coffee, Foree preens like a Cheshire cat calmly taking its time before pouncing on a trapped rat. Foree eats up every inch of the screen, repeatedly dunking his character into a tub of personality, and swallowing scenes in single gulps before digesting them just as fast.”
