Fantasia Review: CYBERNATURAL

Cybernatural 3

While the found footage/pov sub-genre has seemingly been done to death, this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival has done its best to prove otherwise, with completely solid efforts such as the Patrick Brice/Mark Duplass horror-comedy CREEP (review soon), and now, Leo Gabriadza’s Skype-based horror film CYBERNATURAL.  The technology-led horror film not only provides viewers with enough shock and […]

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET’s Heather Langenkamp gets herself a ‘Freddy Cut’ For Scares That Care!

Heather's Freddy Cut Montage (1)

I’ve always loved seeing Heather Langenkamp in things, as the Elm Street spotlight typically goes to Freddy himself, bypassing how integral the character of Nancy was in the original film.
