    Review: DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN

    Possessed pregnancies seems to be a subgenre that is alive and booming, with film likes DEVIL’S DUE, THE DEVIL INCARNATE and now Brian Netto’s  DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN. I don’t know if someone in independent horror land just wants to steer potential baby-makers away from having a kid with stories of the devil executing his […]

While Steven R. Monroe(director […]

The Vault: KOLOBOS

If I had to choose three subgenres I’d say I’m most fluent in, it would be female-centered exploitation films, films now-famous actors wish they could scrub off their resumes, and late 90s-early 00’s slasher films.  I’ve been fortunate enough to find some crazy gems over the years at my small town thrift shops, but last […]

Review: DISASTER LA, The Last Zombie Apocalypse Begins Here

Every year, around a dozen or two entries into the zombie sub-genre are released, and like every other genre, they range in quality from good or decent, to well, not that great. Every genre has that approach and when something takes off, it’s a surety that the market will become flooded with films of varying […]
