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: BIG SKY

I first saw actress Bella Thorne on a morning talk show promoting her teen comedy THE DUFF and wasn’t sure how to interpret her. That film was aimed towards the MTV audience that watches shows like AWKWARD and TEEN MOM.  She seemed to struggle a bit in the interview trying to establish that her film was […]

Review: 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 […]

Scott Derrickson’s 2012 shocker SINISTER was a surprise hit, telling a grim story about a true crime author moving his family into a crime scene and eventually opening up a Pandora’s box of evil in the form of a film projector and a boogieman that lived inside of it. It was an in your face film, […]

Films That Mean A Lot To Us: PUMP UP THE VOLUME

PumpUpTheVolume

Growing up, my local video store, Major Video, was god to me. I lived across the street and to say that I spent hours in that place EVERY day after school would be the understatement of the year. It was like my second home. Looking over every single box, cardboard standout, and even forking over […]
