Fantasia Film Fest review: BITE


Within the last few years, the body-horror/”we make poor decisions and our bodies begin to fall apart” subgenre has seen somewhat of a boom, with films like CONTRACTED and ANTIVIRAL really doing great jobs at putting our bodies under the microscope. Like most genre hits (whether critical or fan-loved) though, when you get one or […]

Fantasia Film Fest Review: OBSERVANCE


The psychological thriller subgenre of horror has always been one that either works or it doesn’t. When it hits, you can either get a JACOB’S LADDER or you can get,..well…a GOTHIKA. It’s hard for a film that falls somewhere within that kind of film to not be paint by numbers, having spooky and oddly random metaphorical […]

Fantasia Film Fest Review: SYNCHRONICITY


When 2007’s THE SIGNAL first hit audiences, it did a hell of a job showing a small glimpse of the capabilities of the film’s trio of writer/directors, David Bruckner, Dan Bush and Jacob Gentry. Each director’s segment felt completely different from the previous director’s, and there was a sense of promise that you felt upon […]

Fantasia Film Festival Review: MEATHEAD GOES HOG WILD


Films detailing a character’s descent into madness are always a tricky game. If done right, you get TAXI DRIVER or FALLING DOWN, and if you don’t succeed, you get a completely disjointed film that loses its viewers when the tone of the film makes its switch. Thankfully, the Sean Pierce, Zach Harris and Kevin Cline-directed MEATHEAD […]

Fantasia Film Festival Review: POSSESSED


One of the many lovable elements of 2012’s PARANORMAN was how easy it was for genre fans to latch onto. It dipped its toes into the horror genre, giving small homage-filled shout outs to films that horror lovers adore. While that film and those nods were fun, it left me wondering if we’d ever receive […]

Fantasia Film Festival Review: SLUMLORD

Slumlord Banner

At one point or another, we’ve all felt like someone was watching us. For the most part, it’s all in our imagination-filled heads, but what about the times and instances in which someone WAS being watched? What if we were not only being watched, but were also being violated in every room or crevice of […]

Fantasia Film Festival Review: (T)ERROR


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 […]
