Review: THE BABADOOK

maxresdefault

As much flack as it gets from the academy, “serious” film buffs who think it’s beneath them and god knows who else, the horror genre is by far the most intelligent one of them all. Sure, there are more than enough bad entries thrown out there for Walmart $5 bin consumption, but on the flip […]

Review: JESSABELLE

Jessabelle-Poster (1)

The supernatural horror film has been done to death, It’s always someone being haunted until they realize that the spirit is just wanting closure, it’s all been done, time and time again. With that being said, when a film that falls into the supernatural horror arena and offers something new, it’s exciting, and very easy […]

WDYPiH_Yakuza_Poised

Every once in a while a film comes along, demanding your undivided attention, and succeeding at completely blowing your mind. Sion Sono’s WHY DON’T YOU PLAY IN HELL? is exactly that kind of film,…and more.

Back in 2009, I caught a screening of Emily Hagins’ zombie film PATHOGEN at a women in film festival, followed by ZOMBIE GIRL: THE MOVIE, a documentary centered around her making this film.  At the time of PATHOGEN‘s production, Hagins was merely twelve years old.  It was an impressive film, regardless of her age, and […]

While fans of Scream Factory can typically rejoice in their continual output of cult and fan-favorites, every once in a while the SF gang put out a genre film that has either been long lost or forgotten about and it switches things up for the better. We all want to have great collector’s editions of […]

Review: V/H/S: VIRAL

VHS-Viral-Reaper

There comes a point in every series, in which some (or all) of the magic that made a franchise’s first entry so fun to latch onto. When 2012’s V/H/S hit, it showcased a cool concept of various horrible stories playing out on videotapes that hoodlums watched. The following year, V/H/S/2 took the same approach, added […]

Review: MOCKINGBIRD

mockingbird-bryan-bertino-blumhouse-tilt

After an extremely successful run with his debut film THE STRANGERS, director Bryan Bertino’s follow-up was highly anticipated.  Boasting a unique spin on the ‘found footage’ subgenre, MOCKINGBIRD seemed like it was going to be a tense second film from Bertino.  Unfortunately, MOCKINGBIRD is the definition of sophomore slump.  It possesses some of the simplistic […]

I’m an anthology nut. Sure there are definitely a decent amount of uneven and/or straight up bad ones, but the ones that do it right, REALLY work well for me. I just love the idea of horror filmmakers taking the short form of filmmaking and telling quality stories in a limited amount of time, which […]
