Fantasia Film Festival Review: (T)ERROR

TERROR-STILL

The power that documentaries hold is such a strong one, that when done right, they can be very effective in a eye-opening kind of way. There is such a level of storytelling that cannot be compared to watching real life unfold in front of your eyes, it’s mind-blowing at times. Lyric R. Cabral and David Felix Sutcliffe’s completely […]

Icons of Fright Interview with 7 MINUTES Director Jay Martin!

7MinutesSTILL

Having started his career as both a music video director (his video for Atreyu’s “Ex’s and Oh’s” is a fave of mine) and a storyboard artist on films like AMAZING SPIDERMAN 2 and CONSTANTINE, Jay Martin’s directorial feature debut 7 MINUTES is a heist gone wrong film full of tension and suspense.

Things can get pretty frightening for all involved, as the audience isn’t quite sure what they will see next; a future star or someone that should look up the word […]

Beyond Fright Review: DOOMSDAYS

DOOMSDAYS

Taking its audience by storm and really never losing any momentum, Eddie Mullins’ impressive and anarchistic DOOMSDAYS offers up two (and then later more) of the most directionless and loser-y characters in recent history and does what very few films can pull off with such precision these days: make you fall in love with them. It’s […]

Beyond Fright Review: FORBIDDEN EMPIRE

FE

Coming at viewers like a freight train of visually stimulating surroundings and a story that doesn’t slow down for a single second, Oleg Stepchenko’s FORBIDDEN EMPIRE gives fans of fantasy adventure films one hefty dose of entertainment. A film filled to the absolutely brim with computer-generated effects, but not in a way that takes you from […]
