Fantasia Review: WOLFCOP

wolfcop-poster-2-590x590

Canada has been cranking out some impressive horror films lately, and WOLFCOP is no exception.  In a genre over-saturated with zombies and found footage, it was a refreshing change of pace for an independent horror film to channel one of the most treasured subgenres; werewolf flicks.  The title alone lets audiences know that they’re in […]

Fantasia Review: CREEP

Creep - 2

Horror comedies can be quite the odd combination at times. When a film focuses too much on one over the other, it runs the risk of pushing certain fans away. Throw the found-footage/POV angle into the mix, and well, the odds are almost against you from the get-go. Luckily, the Patrick Brice/Mark Duplass collaboration CREEP […]

Full Moon and Action Lab Comics Announce Partnership; PUPPET MASTER Comic On Its Way!

FMM

There were quite a few announcements that went down at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International convention this past week, and though Hall H gave comic book fans tons of Marvel comics/films stuff regarding their upcoming slate, one of the other halls gave genre fans the announcement that really caught my attention (not being able to attend this […]

I absolutely love horror movies involving pissed off animals. Maybe it’s because we’re so used to loving them in general, that when a horror-ish film comes along that throws a big wrench into that, it makes for some fun entertainment. With that all being said, SAW V director David Hackl is returning behind the helm […]

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 […]

Fantasia Review: AT THE DEVIL’S DOOR

AT THE DEVIL'S DOOR wide frame ratio Catalina_2.35

Nicholas McCarthy hit the horror scene hard with his 2012 feature debut, THE PACT, catching viewers off guard and getting tons of praise within the horror community as well. With such a strong first film, the pressures of following up that debut could make a lesser man cave under the pressure, but alas, McCarthy obviously […]

Review: RAGNAROK

I will never understand why Hollywood insists on continuing to crank out the basic-ass bible story movies with whitewashed casts, when they could easily tell riveting stories by borrowing tales from Norse Mythology.  Save for the “less-than-accurate” portrayals of Thor and Loki, the Norse mythos don’t get nearly enough cinematic love.  Luckily for us, director […]

Bluray Review: GINGER SNAPS

Always doing a hell of a job releasing either cult classics or long sought after genre films to special edition Blurays, Scream Factory once again does a great job with their July 22nd new Collector’s Edition Bluray release of John Fawcett’s 2000 werewolf fan favorite, GINGER SNAPS. Fans wondering whether or not a double dip […]
