    Genre Gut Punches: Jamie Lloyd Never Stood A Chance

    There is something about the HALLOWEEN franchise that just ignites an overwhelming mixture of feelings for me. I hold the original John Carpenter classic very close to my heart, and will go to my grave declaring it to be the best film of all time. With the amount of love and admiration that I have […]

    Fantasia Review: WOLFCOP

    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 […]

    WHY THE FINAL GIRL IS THE WORST THING FOR WOMEN IN HORROR

    Whenever I discuss the problems of female representation in horror films, I’m almost immediately bombarded with cries of, “BUT WHAT ABOUT THE FINAL GIRL!?”  Ah, yes, the final girl.  By Carol J. Clover (Men, Women, & Chainsaws: Gender in the Modern Horror Film)’s definition, the final girl is described as “a trope in thriller and […]

    Fantasia Review: CREEP

    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 […]

Scott Atkins and Dolph Lundgren Team up to Battle the “Shocate” Creature in LEGENDARY, Hitting DVD/VOD July 29th!

Being a product of the ’80s, very few people make me as excited as Dolph Lundgren does. I grew up with I COME IN PEACE, THE PUNISHER, SHOWDOWN IN LITTLE TOKYO, and every other film he was in. Yes, his recent output might be less than stellar, but it would be a lie if I […]

Review: THE HUMAN RACE

As humans, we tend to think that we are compassionate, gentle, and genuinely good people,…unless of course, we’re put into a kill or be killed situation. Then that goes out the door, turning things around, and making us into the very things we fear. Paul Hough’s THE HUMAN RACE shows us just how real, and terrifying this […]
