Review: REDEEMER

REDEEMER

Right now, American action films are looking quite tame in comparison to those from other countries. In the last few years we’ve gotten groundbreaking films such as THE RAID: REDEMPTION and its sequel, THE RAID 2, as well as countless others that show that the bad CGI and poor choreography aren’t cutting it anymore. Adding […]

Review: FELT

Felt Still

“My life is a fucking nightmare.” That opening line sets the tone for FELT, spoken in voice over by Amy (Amy Everson, who co-wrote the film with directed Jason Banker, (TOAD ROAD), based on experiences in her past) as she is walking barefoot down the street, sporting what looks to be a frog onesie. I’m […]

Review: POD

PODBANN

Paranoia and the idea of alien life-form is something that viewers have always found incredibly appealing. There’s just nothing like experiencing a film that leaves you guessing the whole time, making you bite your finger nails at the question of whether or not you’re watching somebody lose their mind, or if something is actually out […]

​I always wondered why there weren’t more slasher-themed video games.

Review: PARA ELISA

parabanner

The familiar student who desperately needs money to go on a class trip and accepts the wrong job is the starting point of  Juanra Fernandez’s PARA ELISA, but there’s a whole lot of things going on within the story that elevates the Spanish film into some terrifyingly original places. Filled with dread and tension, it’s […]

Review: BLOOD PUNCH

A rehab facility is the perfect place to find someone to cook meth, right? Only in BLOOD PUNCH does that scenario feel appropriate as this dark comedy brings together actors from one of the many POWER RANGERS shows and one of the writers of THE TIGGER MOVIE in a bloody, drug fueled epic that will […]

Review: INNSMOUTH

innsmouth

Watching filmmakers adapt the works of H.P. Lovecraft is always a good thing in my book, and with films like RE-ANIMATOR, FROM BEYOND, and even entries that may not be straight from the source but more of an homage (see Carpenter’s IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS), you can tell that Lovecraft’s influence is prevalent and definitely […]
