Review: APPLECART

Blu_20Cover_original

Dustin Wayde Mills isn’t your average genre filmmaker. While other filmmakers are busy trying to appease the mass consumption of horseshit, a certain small group of filmmakers like Mills are doing what any filmmaker not following the Spielberg playbook of tentpole and blockbuster event film do: truly create art.

A suspenseful tale is always something that I find incredibly easy to jump into. There’s nothing like a mystery, one that leads you down a path with its characters, and providing its share of twists, catching you off guard.

stigmata_ver2

I’m a sucker for religion-themed horror. There just something absolutely enthralling about the darker side of faith battling the lighter, and the journey that whoever is in between said battle is always enjoyable to watch. With that said,  I couldn’t be more excited about Scream Factory announcing today that they’re giving 1999’s Patricia Arquette (A […]
