Fantastic Fest review: THE MIND’S EYE

Mind's eye

2013’s ALMOST HUMAN showcased not only the talents of director Joe Begos, actor/editor Josh Ethier and actor Graham Skipper, but a genuine love for all things John Carpenter and David Cronenberg. The gory body invasion film caught people off guard during its festival run and when released, it quickly became a film that genre lovers […]

Ash Gets A Crew in Brand new ASH VS. EVIL DEAD Featurette


Full disclosure: I was more than skeptical when the original announcement of ASH VS. EVIL DEAD hit computers everywhere. The first film in the EVIL DEAD series is one I hold high with great esteem, and as much as I dig EVIL DEAD 2, the approach to go silly with that one and ESPECIALLY in […]

While not […]

Beyond Fright review: DOG DAY AFTERNOON (40th Anniversary Bluray)


I’m a massive fan of heist films. There’s just something so entertaining and gripping as sitting down and watching films like HEAT, RESERVOIR DOGS, or in this case, DOG DAY AFTERNOON. Easily one of my favorite subgenres of film, films like the ones mentioned above were all able to not only tell a very tightly […]

Review: SUPERNATURAL Season Ten


With Supernatural’s season nine cliffhanger splitting the show’s Winchester brothers and having Dean (Jensen Ackles) turned into a demon, season ten of the long-running TV show begins a lot like the first season began: with searching. Sam (Jared Padalecki) spends early episodes looking for his brother, getting kidnapped the vengeful Cole, angry at the face […]
